For many years, web developers have relied on WAMP, MAMP, XAMPP and other local development tools. However those tools have some severe limitations, particularly if you're working in a team environment.
There is a better way to do local development. We've just updated"Local Web Development With DDEV Explained" which shows you how to do local development in a way that matches modern development workflows.
Mike Anello is a long-time member of the Drupal and web development communities. In this book, he recommends replacing WAMP and MAMP with DDev-Local, a Docker-based system.
DDEV-Local is an open-source local development environment for PHP-based projects. It provides a robust and flexible setup for platforms such as Drupal, WordPress, and TYPO3.
