😀 This holiday won't only be a nice reward for me, but also for my girlfriend who always gives me a lot of time working on open source packages and blog posts.
Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.
Every month I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.
Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.
Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
