Tonight we had a panel discussion on how three different companies take their Code (Theme, Plugin, etc.) and get into production. Tools and web sites mentioned include:

  • git – distributed version control system
  • MAMP – a local web server for Mac with Apache, MySQL and PHP
  • WPengine – web hosting and more for WordPress sites
  • Asana – enables teamwork without email
  • WP-CLI – a command line interface for WordPress
  • Subversion – enterprise class centralized version control for the masses
  • Vagrant – development environments made easy
  • vmware – virtualization of operating systems
  • Capistrano – remote multi-server automation tool
  • bash – a scripting language
  • Sass – CSS with superpowers
  • Grunt – the Javascript task runner
  • Bedrock – WordPress development stack from Roots
