We recently decided to rewrite Ucraft's Laravel from scratch.
The namespeaces are going to be more correct and the app itself will be compatible with Composer packages.
This also improves the connection between MySQL and PHP making the reoccurring MySQL queries cached during the lifecycle.
The decision to go with KISSmetrics for our main live user input analytics tool was based on the integrations available with Slack and Shopify . Alterting the right people based on user actions without the noise that most of the tools will push as notification made the difference between KISSmetrics and the rest in this segment. Then the fact that Zapier can connect KISSmetrics with other apps like Salesforce Sales Cloud and G Suite makes the process very smooth.
Also the fact that we can automate some of the campaigns is saving a lot of time
Over time, as our teams became bigger and projects became more complex, we started to take agile processes more seriously and wanted more advanced (by our standards) project management abilities, like burndown charts, velocity tracking, etc. We also wanted to handle a lot of content management tasks that were primarily done by non-technical teams but often touched engineering.
After using Pivotal Tracker and Wrike, JIRA ended up being the right choice for us. Its design was flexible enough to do engineering project management, content management and other tasks like product roadmapping effectively. It had all the bells and whistles we wanted (plus many more we never got around to using). Given that it is a flexible service that tries to do everything, it is ideal for a team that can 1) dedicate significant bandwidth to upfront setup and organization and 2) empower admins to establish and enforce best practices among team members.

I use Git mostly inside of Visual Studio Code nowadays. They built it in, no Extension needed. The one Git related extension I did install was "GitHub Pull Requests" which does exactly what it says.
I still use GNU Bash for commands like
git status or
git reset --hard origin/master when I need to just start over.
At labinator.com, we use HTML5, CSS 3, Sass, Vanilla.JS and PHP when building our premium WordPress themes and plugins. When writing our codes, we use Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code depending on the project. We run Manjaro and Debian operating systems in our office. Manjaro is a great desktop operating system for all range of tasks while Debian is a solid choice for servers.
WordPress became a very popular choice when it comes to content management systems and building websites. It is easy to learn and has a great community behind it. The high number of plugins as well that are available for WordPress allows any user to customize it depending on his/her needs.
For development, HTML5 with Sass is our go-to choice when building our themes.
Main Advantages Of Sass:
As for PHP, we always thrive to use PHP 7.3+. After the introduction of PHP 7, the WordPress development process became more stable and reliable than before. If you a developer considering PHP 7.3+ for your project, it would be good to note the following benefits.
