So we're doing Comference again this year. We're looking for companies to sponsor the event. Let me know if you know any companies that would like to sponsor an online conference focussing on the leas discussed topics surrounding web development!


As a product manager I'm always in meetings. The only time management trick that's worked to get uninterrupted time is to either block of entire days as no meeting days or block of the equivalent of an 8 hour workday in 3 - 4 hour chunks as focus time.

Nothing else works.


Don’t forget that it is Friday and you are allowed to stop doing what you are doing and take a break.


I'm so sick of blocking tech stacks again. Today: Dialing into a Windows machine via TeamViewer to access a Linux VM running there. And of course every now and then keyboard input is flakey. Makes debugging in the VM pure fun.... 😑

My better half gifted me with an advent calendar. 😁

Everybody loves to report the negative. We are all too happy to participate in an IDR to try and cancel someone. Too few of us take the time to just stop and tell someone about something good someone did.

Folks, with 2020 being the year that it was, we're not seeing as many interested contributors this year. Therefore we're opening things up to previous contributors as well. If you'd like to submit a new article this year, please do get in touch.



Did I get this right? Because if so, folks, we have a problem here. And it's not the man maintaining a vital piece of the PHP ecosystem in his fucking free time deciding he's only going to support PHP versions under active maintenance.
