Introduction to Local Development0:33 with Zac Gordon
In this video we introduce the topic of developing with WordPress on your own computer rather than a hosted environment.
[Local WordPress Development with Zac Gordon: Introduction]
Local WordPress Development involves setting up a server on your computer
that lets you run WordPress without being connected online to a hosting account.
This let you work more quickly since you don't have
to wait for your changes to be saved to a remote server
or to worry about issues like internet connectivity.
If you haven't develop WordPress sites locally before,
you're going to love how much simpler it makes the process.
Let's go ahead and get started.
