First Things First: Git Your Local Dev Under Control & In Order

  • Mar 15, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Most of us already have a local dev environment setup along with our version control system of choice, and we're fine with that. But are you getting the most out of your workflow?

1. Let's each share our server setup (surprise, everyone doesn't use the *AMPs), and then 

2. discuss how we setup our version control systems (no cowboy coding) to manage project code (whether it be a theme or plugin) over time

Disclaimer: This is *not* a git vs. ___ discussion, rather a discussion of repo organization models that can be used in any VCS. 

The goal is to extract at least one thing from someone else's setup/workflow that we can incorporate into our own workflow to improve our development process. And if you're a new developer and don't have your environment or version control system setup, you'll learn something too!

So bring your laptops/tablets, and come to share and learn!

Oh yeah - there's food, too! First come, first serve - soft drinks, subs (Ham, Turkey and Veggie for 30 people), cookies and a few Pizzas. Thanks to our wonderful sponsor who did not want any recognition but is just excited to help kick-off and support a meetup.

    I got a lot of good tips about source control and workflow in this meetup.

    Great! Only thing, it might be a good idea to blow things up on the screen for readability.

    Overall, it was a good discussion. I wish we could have seen more examples rather than simply talked about them, but maybe that will come. I know I don't have a local dev set up just yet. That will be coming in a few weeks though.

    Really enjoyed the discussion - everyone was willing to share from their background/perspective. The conversation at drinks afterwards at Local Republic was good, too.

    Great topic. Has us thinking about the enterprise and how we can be more efficient.

    Very structured, on topic, high level of discussion. Great change from some of the other WP meetups with less of a commute.

    I love the venue. It's right in downtown L'ville close to all the great things about the city. Additionally the level of discussion (from a technical standpoint) is much higher than most other meetups, which is a nice change of pace.

    It was great to hear other people's thoughts on organizing the local development environment and especially keeping Wordpress projects under version control.
