Sharing learning via code

Link –

Konstantin Kudryashov, one of the speakers at the upcoming Full Stack Europe conference, makes the case for sharing new insights early.

When you build new feature as a team, and it requires a lot of new learning, do not hoard new knowledge in your head. Instead, incrementally commit each unit of learning into working code. Hide that partial logic behind a feature flag. The feature would be incomplete, but work-in-progress outputs will expose meaningful and demonstrable progress. To increase team’s awareness of outputs, add links into the feature tracker or documentation.


Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks 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.
