MySQL was a bit of fiddling. I normally use Vagrant for projects I work on.

Chromedriver had to be downloaded and put in vendor/bin to be used.

Other than that a comprehensive and complete workshop which has clearified a lot about the use.

I really liked this tutorial, it was very informative. Though it took a while to get everything up and running.
For improvement I would suggest to either notify in advance to install some critical software before the tutorial or either to provide a virtual machine to use.
