RunCloud RunDown – July 16th

Welcome one welcome all to this weeks RunCloud RunDown dated July 16th.

From the RunCloud blog we are resurfacing two popular and useful articles, firstly we show you how to deploy Laravel Web Applications the right way using the integrated RunCloud Git Deployment and Webhooks feature, then we have our guide to creating WordPress staging sites using the RunCloud backup service.

In our roundup of articles from across the PHP and Dev world we have an invitation from Fred Meyer over at WP Shout for all WordPress warriors to sign up to the WordPress Developer Honor Code, Adrian Zumbrunnen at UX collective explores what it takes to scale a team while remaining true to your projects needs and retaining integrity, Troy Hunt from Microsoft shows us just how it is to make sure your sites are HTTPS enabled in time for Googles July deadline, and Dean Burton from WP Buffs introduces the idea of a ‘How I Work’ manifesto to help Freelance developers avoid burning out. Alongside these lead articles we have an article on giving and receiving better code reviews, an introduction to Redis using a local installation, there is a release of a PHP7 multi format streaming parser, we list 10 common Git problems and how to overcome them, go through 10 Golden rules to be a better programmer, and finally look at 7 ways to boost performance and decrease the latency of your WordPress website.

While in our educational section we have another fantastic tutorial from Delicious Brains, this time on building a WordPress plugin using the Vue javascript framework, Pascal Landau shows us how to set up a local PHP development environment on the Windows Platform using Docker containers, and Pine Co go into detail on how to implement custom logic with raw SQL in Laravel. We also have a tutorial on how to build deploy ready PHP web apps, then we level up our PHP string manipulation with Twine, WP Shout makes sure we know how to properly enqueue our WordPress CSS assets, and we learn how to use DiDom to parse HTML with PHP.

We hope you enjoy this weeks RunDown and look forward to any feedback in the comments at the bottom.
