The Laracasts snippet, each episode, offers a single thought on some aspect of web development.
Programming is Bootcamp for Conscientiousness
Programming taught me an interesting life lesson: be a stickler for the details. You see, getting the thing to work is only half the battle. You’re not done. Not even close. Yes, make it functional. But then make it readable. Should it also be flexible? Then do so. And certainly make it beautiful.
When it comes to business, I - like many developer-turned-small-business-owners, I’d imagine - am really quite green. Not just green, deep green. No MBA in sight. I’m not even sure what that stands for, to be honest. Master of Business Administration? Is that it? Yep, a master of business… yours truly is not. Can you relate?
Steal From Other Hobbies
In this episode, we'll talk about stealing techniques and approaches from other hobbies or industries. What have you learned from one hobby that might be useful for your programming career? I can think of a few.
Laracasts Q&A: 2022 Edition
It's hard to believe, but the last Laracasts Q&A episode was published over two years ago. Let's fix that with a new 2022 edition. I'll answer a wide variety of questions, including: how to initially plan a business, are lifetime accounts worth offering, why don't we have dedicated Laracasts apps, how to avoid content creator burnout, and more.
I often hear about flat organizational structures and how they lead to more autonomy and better collaboration. That could be true! It sounds appealing. But my worry is: don't you lose the zoomed out perspective in the process? From my experiences, that multi-focus hierarchy is essential.
For a number of years now, I've found myself quietly mumbling the words, "Don't participate," every time I feel the need to insert myself into events or conversations that have nothing to do with me. It works wonders. Nearly every time, I delete the draft and get back to work.
Coding & Life
A couple of weeks ago I decided to learn Laravel, and oh my God what a big blessing it has being! To start, I didn’t know that for $15 a month I could get the mentorship of a season and trained developer like Jeff. His videos are AMAZING and now that I just find out that he has a podcast I can see more of the person that he is, not just the developer. Great podcast, Jeff thank you for being an inspiration and mentor to many developers around the world. Keep up the good work!
I love to hear from Jeffrey
Jeffrey’s voice is so inspiring and I love to hear Jeffrey’s thoughts on different aspects including codes and more.
Water for the soul
I love listening what Jeffrey have to say, is always refreshing and useful, without the arrogance you get elsewhere, just a regular guy sharing honest advices and trying to help. Thank you
