Good Developer Experiences With Ben Ramsey, Part 1 Of 2

Ben Ramsey is joining us to talk to us about the box of tools he uses on a daily basis.

Congratulations, and a big THANK YOU, to Ben for being a PHP 8.1 Release Manager. The PHP Internals podcast just published a podcast talking to the team at Did you know that this is a 3 year commitment? I did not!

Ben will talk about:
* some familiar tools, such as PHPUnit and PHP_CodeSniffer;
* new tools like PHPStan and Psalm;
* how to configure these tools for better workflows through Composer scripts and plugins;
* best practices;
* how to standardize workflow with CaptainHook and GitHub Actions.
