Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at

Things you want to know about Let's Encrypt

Link –

On his blog Simone Carletti gives a good overview of everything Let's Encrypt has to offer (and he also touches on what the service doesn't offer)

Let’s Encrypt is a new certificate authority that entered the internet scene at the end of 2015. ... However, Let’s Encrypt is not only free. Quoting the homepage: Let’s Encrypt is free, automated, and open.

But what does it mean? In this article I’ll share some of the direct consequences of that quote to help you better understand how Let’s Encrypt (currently) works. My goal here is not to judge or advertise the service offered by Let’s Encrypt (either in a negative or positive way), rather provide an overview of what you should expect if you use this service, and let you decide whether Let’s Encrypt is a good fit for you or not.

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.
