We will also be going over basic setup of editors and how to customize them.
The build process, we will also be looking at your local environment and how to get the best setup to be able to test out code locally before pushing it live. Setting up a local web development environment allows you to create and modify web applications on your own computer rather than uploading the application files to a server to run the files. Additionally we will go over some great resources that will help you work more effectively.
The last stage to the development process after writing the code and testing, will be to transfer the files to your server.
