Works on Everyone's Machine: An Overview of Local Development Tools

Session Category Development & Performance Room 180 Audience Beginner Time Slot Sat 2:00pm to 2:45pm (2/18/23)

Yes, you've heard of multidev, but what about local dev?

Local development tools like Lando and DDEV are some of the most important tools teams can utilize to work iteratively and coordinate on changes, especially for working on projects at scale. Using local development environments, you can improve your team's work flows, increase developer confidence and communication, have more robust quality assurance practices, and more. Local development tools can improve overall development team performance, and even designers and other non-coders can benefit from their use.

This talk will help you decide which tool might work best for you and point you to resources to get started.
