To get everything configured, please install the following:

+ Ruby Installer for Windows
+ Git for Windows (which, importantly, includes Git Bash):

We recommend making a shortcut to Git Bash in a convenient place.

+ GitHub Desktop

+ You'll need to create a free GitHub account in order to use it:

You don't strictly need GitHub Desktop, but you may find that it's the easiest way to use GitHub on Windows.

+ Heroku Toolbelt:

You'll also need a free Heroku account to use this.

Then do `gem install rails`. We prefer to use the Ruby installer, and then manually install rails, over using the Rails Installer.
