How is Homebrew Used to Start Your Workflow?

Part of Screencast Series: Exploring Development Workflows

Published March 2016

Hint: This is where you should start your workflow

Homebrew is a package manager for OS X - meaning it allows you to easily download and manage the installations of many other software tools. Things like Node/NPM, PHP, MySQL, Redis and many other tools can be installed and managed onto your system via Homebrew. In other words, it alleviates you from having to check the constant status and version changes that come with many tools we use in our development workflows, giving you more time to code.
