MAMP is a popular development tool for Mac based programmers. The name is a play on LAMP, Linux+Apache+MySQL+PHP, the popular website hosting paradigm. While we might deploy to a LAMP system we often develop on a Mac, hence the need for a Mac equivalent. Out of the box Mac's come with Apache and PHP, and with a little work MySQL can be installed. But some people want better control.
The PHP+Apache setup delivered with MacOSX is not good enough for serious development work.
