At Drupalcon Amsterdam 2019 I moderated a very interesting panel about Local Drupal Development tools.
The invited panelists were: Randy Fay from Drud (DDEV), Mattias Michaux from Dropsolid (Launchpad), Michael Schmid from Amazee (pygmy), Engin Yilmaz from FFW (Docksal), Mark Casias from Mediacurrent (Lando) and Alejandro Moreno-Lopez from Acquia (Acquia DS).
It seems everyone has their own favorite local development tool these days. From Lando to DDEV, along with Launchpad, Docksal, pygmy and Acquia DS to custom solutions, developers have strong opinions of which tools rank supreme. In this session, creators and users of different local development tools provided their story of why they made the choices they made. We had an healthy debate and discussion as the main driver here so any questions or concerns regarding the subject were welcome.
