apt is the underlying package manager for Debian distros, and apt-get is the 
part of it which deals with installation/removal. The command you quoted asks  
apt to get the needed packages to let you build programs right on your box. In 
fact, you do the right thing at asking for all and everything but well, I will 
do the regular answer for such questions: RTFM :-) Or blindly follow 
instructions given by others.

bon week-end
