What Should I Use? 2019 Developer Tool Survey Results

- Private group -

Perhaps you consider yourself a proficient Drupal developer, but you’re curious to learn what everyone else uses for their local development work. Or, maybe you’re just getting started with Drupal and you’d like validation that you’re on the right “path.” This session will cover all the basics you need to know to be able to evaluate and determine what’s the best development setup for you, your team or your dev shop.

We’ll review the pros and cons of a number of approaches, and by the time you leave our session, you should have a good idea of where (at least, we think) you should be headed.

Topics we’ll cover include:

Results from our 2019 Drupal Developer Tools Survey:

  • What tools, applications, and types of environments are Drupal developers using today?
  • What kinds of Drupal projects are theses developers working on?
  • How big are their teams?
  • What are the latest and greatest tools on the scene?
  • Who is this Composer and why should I care?

We’ll provide our list of top tools, using our JUJU ranking (Jeff’s Unabashed Judgement of Usefulness), as well as our collective insight into the 2019 survey results. Jeff and Chris have worked together on a wide spectrum of projects large and small, and bring different viewpoints, from novice to advanced. Our hope is that no matter your experience level, everyone will be able to learn something.
