A PHP and MySQL development environment (the first lesson in the course walks through installing the Wampserver software, which provides a full PHP and MySQL development environment in one package. You download Wampserver for free from http://www.wampserver.com/en/); Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista (Wampserver does not support either Windows 98 or Windows Me.)
Macintosh users can't use the Wampserver software and must provide their own PHP and MySQL development environment. Prior HTML coding experience is helpful, but not required.
