You may have heard of another social network called Pinterest, but what is it and what do you need to do to optimise your site for it?
To some people, the differences in these two roles are obvious. A developer is the one that makes the code and the designer is the one that decides how it will look. But in my experience it is not as simple as it may appear.
There are probably about a million different articles and blog posts online that have a very similar title to this, but I thought I would share my own thoughts with you as each person learns something different. You will probably have your own thoughts on what is important when building an app.
I’ve started cycling again after a break of a few years and I have to say I’m loving it! Not only is it good exercise, but it also gives me time to clear my head and think about random things. This gives me an opportunity to think about work projects and problem solving, as well as the plot for my next chapter in a book I’m writing, but it also gives me a chance to have some random thoughts, such as what if cycling were Formula 1.
One of the scariest things as a developer is pushing new code live, hoping it all works as expected and remembering to do all the deployment steps and in the correct order too! But luckily there are some steps you can take to make it easier, which will probably have an unexpected side effect of allowing you to push your code more often.
Recently I was tasked with creating a report in a Laravel project and I thought I would share some of the things I learned along the way. I’m going to use a shop as an example with an orders table that contains the orders, but these principles should apply to pretty much any report. Firstly I want to get the number of orders for the previous week and then I want to get a count of orders by week and year so I can put this data into a report.
A few weeks ago I was reading an article about how everyone should write a blog. Writing can help you demonstrate your knowledge, but also help out others that are trying to learn the same thing. I write a blog on my own website, which was built with Bulma Clean Theme (a Jekyll website theme built with Bulma), but it’s a bit much if you just wanted to create a blog. So I decided to get my notepad out and start sketching some blog theme ideas.
