Week 2 - Master's Project - Drupal 8 Development on Windows 10
I've decided to make the plunge into Drupal 8 development on Windows 10. Below I have a list of links that I found to be the most helpful in getting the installation completed.
Drupal 8 is built on the AMP Stack so on Windows 10 I'll need to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux, or known as WSL.

Installing PHP 7 and Composer Resources
Installing Mysql 5.7 on Ubuntu
I wish I would have documented this process as I ran into so many issues with installing and configuring Mysql 5.7 on WSL. First off, it didn't ask me to enter a root password so I had to do a combination of things to get a root password in place. Than I had to allow my root password to utilize the mysql mysql_native_password plugin. These two resources were really important for me:
Setting up PHP 7, PHP myadmin, and my favorite: automatically start AMP on WSL (optional)
In case you require mcrypt for PHP 7.2
