How To Set Up a Local Development Environment

• What we’ll do
Pat Ramsey, director of technology for Crowd Favorite, will run through some examples of local development environments. This will include demonstrations of different tools and discussion on when one might be a better alternative than others. The last time this topic was presented at the intermediate level it was to a packed room. I think we called it, “Stop ‘Cowboy’ Coding on Live Sites!”

Whether you’re testing out layouts, shopping carts, auction scripts, memberships, or even directories – it can always be set up on your local server. If you’re testing for workflow or compatibility, installing everything onto your local server is generally a good first step in the debugging process.

This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best developers in our WordPress community.
We look forward to seeing you there!
