I recently switched from Visual Studio Code to PHPStorm for my IDE. A win this week was learning how easy it was to make commits to GitHub and running different emulators in React Native, across two projects at once. This was without having to give commands to multiple terminals.


  • Little "Play" buttons showed up in the Package.json file to run NPM scripts.
  • I could visually check on/off which files I wanted to commit from both projects.

It was a small workflow thing, but it actually helped me focus on coding more. I think I am in love. lol ๐Ÿ˜

Used so far

  • PhpStorm first

  • Idea for Java

Couldn't wish better

I shipped a very very very early version of my new PHP routing framework, Wayfinder.

Even if Iโ€™m the only person who ever uses it, it will serve as a good base for any future projects I work on.

I'm coaching a teammate for a couple of weeks. He really likes that and is already showing good signs of improvement.

For the first time, he strictly followed a Clean Architecture approach, which allowed him to write tests event before touching any UI-related stuff. And he was really excited about it.

Definitely seeing that spring sun for my win! Getting out of the winter gloom, hoping to keep consistent code practice despite that but it'll be a mood enhancer for sure.

Presented a work project for our Product team which I did not realize would include our CEO till the last minute ๐Ÿ˜ฒ it went well and good feedback :)
