From time to time I need to remove all history from a GitHub repository, for instance right before releasing a package I've worked on in private. Sometimes I don't want people to see all mistakes I've made along the way :-).
Bernd Ruecker talks about how determine the right level of consistency in distributed applications.

Julia Evans explains how parties like Facebook can follow you around the web.
In this post we’ll experiment a bit and see exactly how Facebook can know what products you’ve looked at online! I’m using Facebook as an example in this blog post just because it’s easy to find websites with Facebook tracking pixels on them but of course almost every internet advertising company does this kind of tracking.

For many years we've relied on Travis to run the tests of our packages. For projects we used Circle CI. Recently we moved this responsibility from Travis and Circle CI to GitHub actions. In this blogpost I'd like to explain why and how we did this.
Jonathan Reinink wrote another excellent blog post.
As much as possible, keep data fetching to the perimeter of your Laravel applications. What do I mean by this? In the simplest terms, it means running your database queries in your controllers.

⚗️ One of the most common integrations developers struggle to test is Guzzle. Fortunately, it has a `MockHandler` you can set up to return predefined responses.— Jason McCreary (@gonedark) 23 december 2019

Sara Soueidan shares valueable insights on the importance of accessibility.
A few years ago I didn’t know what the term “accessibility” meant. I built Web sites that were partially inaccessible because I didn’t know better. Fast forward to today, I know enough to be able to write, speak and run workshops on accessibility, helping others build more a accessible and inclusive Web. Much like everyone else in our field, I am still learning. But since I started, I learned a lot of valuable lessons and core values that drive my work today. Here are a few of them.

In this video I demonstrate how to you can create a fluent API by using pending objects. We'll take a look at how subscribers can be created in Mailcoach. As a bonus I explain how jobs are dispatched using a pending object in Laravel. This video is part of the Mailcoach video course which will be…
These are my 10 favourite albums which were released in 2019, alphabetically sorted.

Brent explains what view models are and how you can use them. We use view models in almost every project at Spatie.
In essence, view models are simple classes that take some data, and transform it into something usable for the view. In this chapter I'll show you the basic principles of the pattern, we'll take a look at how they integrate in Laravel projects, and finally I'll show you how we use the pattern in one of our projects.

Nikita Popov discusses some low level performance optimizations in PHP.
David Khourshid explains how you can use state machines to make your logic more resilient.
Disabling a button is not logic. Rather, it is a sign that logic is fragile and bug-prone. In my opinion, disabling a button should only be a visual cue to the user that clicking the button will have no effect.
