To complete this tutorial, you'll need to install Dagster, Dagit, and the

- Dagit: The web-based UI for developing and operating Dagster jobs, including a DAG browser, a type-aware config editor, and a live execution interface.
- Requests: While not a part of Dagster, we'll use this in the tutorial to download data from the internet.
When you've fulfilled all the prerequisites for the tutorial, you can get started creating your first asset.
