Introducing monthly playlists from team Spatie

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 2 minute read

At Spatie, each one of our team members loves music. Scattered across our office are a couple of HomePods. Everyone in our team is free to stream his favourite music for others to hear (of course at an acceptable volume so everyone can still work).

This is a great way to discover music. In my mind, any automated algorithm that picks music for you is trumped what your friends and peers suggest to you.

Because of the pandemic, this way of sharing music with each other was lost. That's why our team will from now on create monthly playlists. The process is easy: every month we will choose a theme for the playlist and each team member picks two or three tracks.

The first theme is "Late Night Something" (it's not "late night coding" because not everyone on our team codes.

Here's our playlist on Apple Music. And here is the same playlist on Spotify.

Here's at the Spotify embed so you can listen from your browser too.

I hope you'll enjoy these tracks as much as we do! I'm already looking forward to next month's playlist.

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.

We’ll create a new one every month, so you can still enjoy the old playlists! 👍

Will you release a new one every month? Or update this one? Personally I would love a totally new one.
