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.)
Note: 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.
