What Are the Workflows of Prominent PHP Community Members? | Cloudways

static site debugging workflow

Workflow refers to both the process and the tools that are used in this process. Almost every developer comes up with a process of creating and finalizing the project deliverables. This process is implemented through a set of tools that the developer comes up with through trial and error. Once a workflow has been perfected, developers follow the process almost religiously because of a simple reason: following workflows reduces most of the management problems that developers have to face during a project.

Since developing workflows is a matter of experience and trial and error (a very distressing process), many experts recommend that budding developers should try and study the workflows of other known developers. Over time, these new developers would come up with their own toolkit for project development, as they adopt what works for them and discard what doesn't.

Here are some of the PHP ecosystem's most popular developers and designers, and their tools and/or workflows. Note that these workflows will by no means be comprehensive, but even mentions of tools used by some of the more prominent members of our community should be enough to warrant checking them out.
