What kind of computer or software do I need for Skillcrush?

You don’t need anything too fancy to start at Skillcrush or your career in tech – just a Windows or Mac computer (laptop or desktop) that can:

  • access the Internet using a modern web browser such as Chrome, Safari, or Firefox (no Internet Explorer, please!)
  • stream videos (we use Vimeo as our video hosting platform, but as long as you’re able to watch YouTube and Netflix on your computer, you’ll be good to go!)
  • download & install a recent version of Adobe Photoshop. You can view the system specs needed for Adobe Photoshop here.

We recommend a Mac for your Skillcrush courses and for your future career in tech since Macs tend to be the industry standard. But a Windows PC will work very fine too.

We’ll introduce you to any software you might need as you go through your course, but you can read more about them and the costs here: https://skillcrush.com/tech-requirements
