On the SitePoint PHP blog there's a new post from author Shahroze Nawaz that shares the results of a survey performed with several "prominent PHP community members" about their usual development workflows.
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.
[...] 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.
PHP community members on the list include:
- Taylor Otwell
- Phil Sturgeon
- Nicolas Grekas
- Manuel Lemos
- Josh Lockhart
- Cal Evans
- Kat Zien
- Laura Elizabeth
Each person on the list describes their tools of choice for both development related tasks and how they keep organized. There's plenty of links to these tools and services too for you to check them out on your own.
