Setting Up Our Environment

Before we actually start writing SQL, we’re going to have to set up an environment. As a web developer, you probably already have MAMP or WAMP installed on your system. If you don’t, they’re very simple to install. I’m going to assume you already have one of those installed, and show you how to get set up.

Hi! I'm Andrew Burgess, a Staff Writer here on Tuts+. I've been hanging around the Tuts+ since early 2009; I discovered the site when I was looking for an introduction to jQuery. Since discovering the site, my web development skills have skyrocketed; I think that's the default experience! Now, I've been writing for Tuts+ regularly since late 2009. I've been working with the computers since I was pretty young, and with the web since 2006. I've dabbled with over a dozen programming languages, but I'm most comfortable in JavaScript and Ruby. Currently, I'm a university student, studying computer science.
