Contributing to WordPress Core

I recently decided to contribute to DDEV & WordPress open-source projects and while wp-env is available, I personally see more value in using DDEV as a developer (Coming Soon: DDEV Vs wp-env).

What is DDEV?

DDEV is an open-source tool that helps developers to setup local development environments for PHP Applications (at the time of writing) and manage them easily. I’m particularly a fan of DDEV, because it’s the only open-source solution that works across multiple OSes & works with multiple CMSes.
