Build a website on the moon

WordPress development from anywhere

Hi! I’m Sarah!

WordPress! From anywhere!

Build a website on the moon

WordPress development from almost anywhere

Why bother?

Still not convinced?

How we’ll do this:

Local Development

Set up a local server

Gotcha numero uno
Make sure MySQL is in your $PATH
sudo ln -s /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysql /usr/local/bin/mysql

WTF is git, anyway?

Git is magical!
It is also infuriating.

But!
It will totally make your life easier.

git is version control

Why do we use it?

Let’s install it!

Oh, right!
We should probably install WordPress somewhere, too.

Install WordPress somewhere

Gotcha numero dos
Server-specific setup required!

Don’t ignore your .gitignore!

Automation
(You can be replaced by a robot.)

Database syncing

Seriously, why bother?

Huh?

Other gotchas

Security

That's it!
Now go make your WordPress better!

Questions?

Thanks for listening!
