1.3 The Development Environment (Part 2)

In this lesson we'll wrap up the development environment portion of the course by setting up our database, then moving on to:

  1. Installing WordPress
  2. Setting up our IDE (which I use Coda 2)
  3. An introduction to WordPress plugins, which will be covered more comprehensively in the next lesson

Specifically, we discuss phpMyAdmin software for managing our database, as well as the latest version of WordPress. Finally, we import test data into our development environment by using WPTest.
