Congratulations! You made it through your first coding lab. No, you did not write code…yet; however, this lab gave you the initial fundamentals to prepare you for the next step of writing some code.
The next step is to setup your Sandbox website and local building and testing environment. There’s an article in the Help Center that identifies the components of such a setup. But I do invite you to setup your own. Links are below.Patting myself on the back for finishing Introduction to #WordPress Web Development. On my way! Click To Tweet
Excellent job! You finished this lab and now have a big picture view of web development and websites. Way to Go!
Your local web development environment is critical to your ability to efficiently produce high quality and well-tested software projects. This environment should be incredibly easy to use. It should support the way you work, making you better and faster while demanding very little of your time. In this hands-on lab, you will setup your local web development environment. It will include version control with Git, helper apps, package managers (Composer, Node, and npm), task runner with Gulp, local webserver, and a professional editor.
Check out the Web Development Library for more hands-on labs, insights, Docx, and more.
