A laptop with any web editor is all it requires.
Prior knowledge of basic html and css is must.
I have been developing websites/applications from past 7 years, have worked on as large project as blogs for "GSM World".
I have been using Foundation since its version 2, have designed more than 100 website on it. The largest one being www.nextbigwhat.com the website was launched successfully but they sooner realized that they dont need a responsive website so its not live anymore.
I also run a small company of developers and designers who share the same passion for web and Mobile. - www.aspricot.com
We have started using Foundation as our default responsive framework at Aspricot, until client specifies that he needs twitter bootstrap.
