How NOT to make a Website featured in net magazine

Published: May 27, 2020 by C.S. Rhymes

I have some exciting news to share! My book, ‘How NOT to make a Website’, was featured in the June 2020 edition of net magazine as the Side Project of the Month.

I wrote a book called “How NOT to make a Website”, to help you know what to avoid when making a website, helping improve visitor experience.

The article explains why and how I wrote the book, the drawings and what I learned in the process.

The decision to publish the book has increased my confidence in my own writing abilities

It made me think back over the chain of events from building my own website to help promote the books, to building an open source Jekyll theme and now writing blog posts and short stories.

It’s amazing what one side project can lead to.

‘How NOT to make a Website’ is available on Amazon in both kindle & paperback format, as well as PDF format on Gumroad.

Recently I had to create a large data export for a project. I like using Spatie’s Simple Excel package to do this as it is very simple to use and works well when exporting large amounts of data to a CSV or Excel file with the ability to stream a download to the browser. This particular project had an additional requirement though, exporting multiple worksheet’s of data at once. Luckily, this package allows you to do this too.

An alternative to the for loop, the foreach loop is used to iterate or loop over an array. The foreach loop allows you to loop through the items in the array without setting a limit for it to stop like you do in a for loop.

If you have something you want to repeat then consider using a PHP for loop, saving you from copying and pasting the same code multiple times. Adding the code into a loop means you only have to write it once, and you also only have to maintain the code in one place in future.
