Meet your new Web Development Management Team.
Your team develops great products. Every distraction from that process must be avoided. While you cannot save the team from every distraction, you can take action to eliminate the time they would take to research and implement the development environment and processes.
Development teams are strapped for resources; short on people...short on time. What are needed are force multipliers. These are resources that, when combined and deployed correctly, multiply achievable results from your given human resources.
In order to allocate resources well, you need to know how they are performing.
After creating your development environment, training is paramount to effectively use the tools and systems at your disposal. In one or two days, your team will be making code commits to the source code repository and thinking strategically and tactically about how to acheive your goals.
When someone is struggling to figure out one solution, they are not moving to the goal line. It is more efficient to get that solution quickly and move on. We can check in solutions to get past that block, with a code example and comments on use.
