Originally, Spatie was founded 12 years ago by Willem Van Bockstal as a one-person company. In 2009 both Freek and I jumped on board, and we founded the official company Spatie as it is known today.
You can always mention your hourly rate, but that's just a number. What can you achieve in an hour? We try to be very transparent and pragmatic towards our customers. This approach creates trust and avoids lengthy discussions about change requests.
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 https://flareapp.io
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.
