Starting real development
as already exposed before, I’m a programmer, but being a videogame programmer, I don’t know a thing of web development. Actually since I worked for a flash based social MMO integrated with a PHP site, I know just the basis.
Now, I’m planning to create a community using BP, but it’s very hard to find developers that could work for free in the spare time, so I’d like to give a shot and see if I can be able to develop on my own with minimum effort. Actually, BP as it is already makes much of the work, so what I need is mostly to create or extending plugins, but I want to be able to know exactly what I’m doing in order to make even more complex features.
Here I’m asking for advices to know what I should need.
I think I should be able to test locally, so I think I have to install Tomcat and mySql and some other useful dev tools.
Then I could install BP locally, that should be straightforward.
I could even exploit the very interesting site http://kodingen.com/ to make online tests.
Then, I can read what is available in this community and try to start.
Do I forget something? I think I will develop on Windows machine, because I never used Linux in my life
