Requirements for Online Utilities and Lessons:

Docker (Community) = > v.17.12
Web browser (Google Chrome recommended) for accessing the Jupyter notebook. Note: Each machine is different. You will need to alternate your Docker settings such as CPUs, Memory, and Disk Space allocations according to your machine to optimize runtime. If you find a bug or other technical issue please log it on the github issues site

Lessons walk you through model compiliation and various model simulations with different configurations.
