Why We're Craft CMS Developers(honcho.agency)

    I love CraftCMS (my current site is on it) but some of the backend changes in 3 have left me a little lost. I'm a designer first, developer second and all my work to date has been myself wearing all the hats so I haven't had the real need to dive into git, .env, composer, etc. I figured out most of this (still not sure how to effectively implement git as a silo designer/developer into my workflow) but the .env files confound me and sadly there is little to no beginner info or tutorials on the web to get up to speed. I also with Craft had a built-in mechanism for transferring database changes from environment to environment.

        Ryan and I went to the same college (MTSU), same major (recording industry production and technology) back in '95-'96ish (briefly roommates). I learned a lot from his Pragmatic Programmer videos on Expression Engine and the newer stuff on mijingo.com. I haven't had a chance to look at the craftquest.io videos yet but they look very similar to his mijingo.com stuff.
