I don’t normally like to promote posts but given that this one is a 16,500 word monster article that took forever to produce, this. This was my win this week.

Thanks bud, but I am too much of a loud mouth and too controversial for that, people might read my other posts! 😉🤣

Seriously though, accessibility just doesn’t draw the crowds sadly 😔. Can’t go giving a top 7 to a post that will get less than a thousand views as that wouldn’t be fair to the people who got some mega traction (seriously 480 views so far...)

Hopefully the experiments for promoting good content they ran last weekend get improved upon and this ends up on a list of things worth promoting in the future as part of “DEV picks” or something, as I do think it is a decent post from me for once! 😜🤣

I had a big week, but it always feels odd to talk about it.

I launched my first online class and got my first customer. I got another wild hair to make something and made another free email series on the bigger lessons I learned after a decade in the industry.

Probably most exciting though is I have a few more leads for my consulting business I started last year.

That’s great, yes it is weird to talk about stuff as it feels like boasting but from the sounds of it you have had a week worth shouting about 💪

I wrote everything I learned while I was migrating my neovim config from vimscript to lua. For now I only have the version written in spanish (is still a win).

Todo lo que necesitan saber para configurar neovim usando lua.

I'll post it on dev.to when the english translation is done.

I published my 4th opensource eBook and wrote a post on DEV about it 🎉

I also got invited to be a speaker to the largest Laravel meet-up in the Netherlands

💡 Laravel Tips and Tricks eBook

This is an open-source Laravel Tips and Tricks eBook that is a collection of my own notes that I've put together for myself throughout the years. You would more likely than not need many of those tips at some point in your career as a Laravel Developer.

The guide is suitable for anyone working as a Laravel developer and would love to learn some random Laravel tips and tricks. You can read the chapters in this book in a random order as they are completely separate tips or tricks.

🚀 Download

To download a copy of the ebook use one of the following links:

I completed my college!!

I realised that I only know 0.0001% of the tech world and there's an whole ocean left to discover.
This is both exciting and scaring.

You will only ever know 0.001% of the tech world as it is so vast.

So the way I see it you are 10% of the way there already!

Great stuff, get out into that ocean and continue kicking ass! ❤️

I'm feeling pretty good about this post I wrote this week. I've already had some folks reach out to mention it's been super helpful. It's based on a talk I gave last week.

Restapify is a tool that allows you to quickly and easily deploy a local REST API by using an intuitive and developer friendly JSON file structure.


Summary

Why Restapify

When you start a new frontend project when the backend is not yet ready, you quickly come to the question of how to retrieve the data to be displayed. There are then many solutions that come with advantages but also some inconveniences. It's possible to use a tool like postman but it's not 100% free and require an account, to simply fetch local JSON data but it only supports a GET request or use a mocker library like json-server, mocker-api or http-fake-backend.

The problem of most of this libraries is the way you have to define your API endpoints (a single file for all the routes, javascript files that took almost…

Just changing my daily routine was my win this week. I’m still not following it 100%, but it’s a small win for me that has powered my confidence to start the next week in a proper way. 😊
