Getting started with Vagrant & VVV for local development
When I started doing web development, I think I started the way a lot of us did. You have a site you want to work on, so you connect with FTP, download a file, modify it, upload it back up, and then refresh the page to see if your changes worked. This process doesn’t really work when you’re working with a team of people, or on a site that people are actively going to.
Setting up WordPress + Nginx + HHVM For The Fastest Possible Load Times
One of the most enjoyable parts about writing code is writing efficient and performant functionality. No matter how fast your code is, if your server itself isn’t running to it’s maximum performance, you’re not delivering your site as fast as you could be. By setting up Nginx and the new HHVM , you can get your server delivering fully loaded pages faster than most servers answer a request. HHVM is an open-source virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hackand PHP.
