Technology:

You can use either a Windows PC or a Mac for this class.  If you are on a solely Linux computer without a Windows or Mac alternative, the instructions may work for most Linux operating systems, but before making alterations to files, be advised to check your specific Linux OS instructions.  

I strongly recommend Windows or Mac.  

All of the software we will use is free to download from the web. The only problem for Mac users is that I have very little experience using a Mac, so I probably will not be able to trouble-shoot Mac-related problems. However, there are almost always other Mac users in the class who can help if something like that should arise.  The same applies to Linux.  I have very little experience with Linux.  

We will use three main programs in this class:

  • Browser: Either Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. I mostly use Chrome.
  • XAMPP (portable version of Apache web server, MySQL database, and PHP). 
  • An Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for PHP. PHPStorm is used for the lab walkthrough videos.
