Session Spotlight: Duty Now for the Future with Jason Cosper

See Jason Cosper in the Salt Creek Trail room at 4:30 PM on Saturday, June 6 for his talk Duty Now for the Future.

WordPress developers have been refining their development workflows and toolkits for almost 12 years now. As game -hanging server technologies like Facebook’s HHVM start to creep into the WordPress hosting space — WP Engine, Pagely & Kinsta all offer HHVM-ready plans — those workflows need to be expanded.

I’ll be introducing you to a new Vagrant-based WordPress development environment (HGV) that includes debugging and profiling tools and allows you to test your code in both PHP & HHVM environments.

If you’re interested in attending this talk, a passing familiarity with the command line helps, but isn’t a hard requirement.
