In the previous series of articles, I explained about the different pieces required to get started with web development. This article will walk you through all the steps to go from a blank machine to a full-fledged web development box. It will cover the installation of the different tools you will need, but will not get into the details of what those tools do (see here) or how they work.

Getting started with web development can seem overwhelming at first, as there are so many choices, for everything. This article is the first of a series that I plan to write on getting started with web development on Windows. The topics covered will be:
- Choosing an editor
- Tooling: node, bower, yeoman, etc.
- Useful libraries
- CSS preprocessors: LESS/SASS
Through these articles, I will try to share my experience with web development so far, show different options and explain the choices I made.
The big jump
Through this article I will try to give some paths to help you set up a convenient environment to start developing web sites.
The focus of this article is not to give training on the technologies. There are a lot of excellent resources on the web; if you wish to get a structured training, I strongly suggest that you visit Pluralsight.
