DDEV-Local is an open-source local development environment for PHP-based projects. Its focus is providing a robust and flexible local development environment for open-source content management systems like Drupal, WordPress, TYPO3 CMS, Laravel, and Magento. If you don’t want to use a CMS, DDEV-Local also has support custom PHP projects. In this course, Rod introduces you to DDEV-Local, walks you through setting the environment up on your own computer (Mac or PC) and then shows you how to install Drupal and WordPress. Lastly, he wraps the course up with an overview of the most common commands. If you’re looking for an Acquia DevDesktop replacement for your Drupal workflow, DDEV-Local is an excellent choice!
Rod holds two masters degrees and has been training people how to do "things" for over 25 years. Originally from Australia, he grew up in Canada and now resides just outside Cincinnati, Ohio. He has worked in both the non-profit and for-profit worlds, in small companies and large corporations.
His extensive open source experience includes WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Moodle and he really knows how to help you get the most out of the system you chose.
Rod plays ice hockey a couple of times a week and rides his Goldwing motorcycle pretty much everywhere he can.
