I'm a relatively new dev and have only set up my environment a few times, so it feels useful to read through your process - if only to have a refresher without the pain of actually doing it. Thanks for taking the time to post this.
On a completely separate topic - Jess & Ben, would you consider adding dates/times to the comments? dev.io being pretty new, it may not seem obviously useful right now. But, as the site becomes populated, it'll be useful in some cases, at least, to compare post dates for different yet related contributions.
! We've added date/time to our backlog. You can follow along on the progress here :)
you can see dates on comments now!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
