Currently Learning

PHP Package Development

I've just started as co-maintainer of the Astrotomic open source packages with help & support from Tom Witkowski.

To aid with that and to further my knowledge I'm currently doing the Beyond Code PHP Package Development course.

Laravel 8 from Scratch

The from Scratch courses at Laracasts are always excellent. I like to do them whenever a new one comes out in order to make sure I haven't missed anything new and also to remind myself of what I should be doing!
