Being a WordPress developer can be frustrating, when you code and the project deadlines are pressing hard and then you encounter a bug which makes your whole local site go blank, you call it a “WTF“.
You spend hours tackling this issue and find that everytime you review your code, you’re finding new bugs. Most often the project efficiency and your dedication towards a project is governed by the number of WTF’s encountered while coding. And when the number goes beyond the threshold you realize maybe the old high school development tool you are using to code is outdated and you need a replacement.
