This talk will focus on the purpose and significance of the three environments all professional developers should use when serving their clients.

This includes:

1. Development Environment
2. Staging Environment
3. Production Environment

The presentation will not stick to a particular set of tools, though. Instead, it will acknowledge the fact that developers choose to use a variety of different editors, debuggers, and so on.

Sure, various tools will be mentioned and recommended but none will be pushed on any of the audience – the ultimate goal is to inform those who are there what their options are.

Further, we _will_ discuss the general workflow of going from development to staging and from staging to production and ways to easily and professionally move your code from one environment to the other.

Finally, the talk will cover why this matters and how it benefits both you (or the business) and the customer.
