PHP site development in Windows 10

WSL and WSL2 is great, but what if you wanted to move all your development to your Windows system? Here are a couple upsides to this approach:

  1. Open and edit files without special plugins or environments (you can use File Explorer!)
  2. No VMs or context switching
  3. Use all your system resources

In the following video I walk through installing PHP and Composer for Windows, then Laragon in order to get quickly up and running, building PHP websites.
