About This Session
In this session we’re going to discuss the wiles of local web development. It is a workflow rife with distinct challenges and misery … but it doesn’t have to be!
Let’s frame this just a bit. You’ve probably encountered more than your fair share of difficulty if you’ve done any amount of local development. For instance, perhaps you’ve deployed code to production only to discover that a key feature was broken, for no explicable reason. Or maybe you’ve shared a project with a colleague and then lost hours trying to get it to work in their local environment. Or maybe you’ve found yourself with a broken local environment for days (weeks?) and just didn’t have time to fix it.
Building powerful, production-ready websites doesn’t need to be this difficult!
