I listen to a lot of podcasts, and noticed that some folks were appearing on a few of them. They would often talk about the same subject (a new startup they launched for example), but from a slightly different perspective.
After I noticed this, I tried to find other podcasts that these people appeared on. This turned out to be very difficult.
I decided to try and make this easier, and the idea for Interviewed was born.
This is such a great idea and a nice way of keeping up people you are interested in and seeing all the old interviews they’ve done. I’m also listed for the few podcasts I’ve been on over the years.
Laravel Forge is a service that handles creating servers on popular cloud hosting providers. I use it to host my WordPress sites with DigitalOcean and to handle auto deployments from a git push.

I came across this site and it says my first pull request was four years ago to the Fuel PHP framework. As far as I remember this isn’t my real first pull request. Just the first on GitHub.
Back then I was big into CodeIgniter and they either used HG or Git, but the project was on Bitbucket. So I’m sure my true first would have been around a year or so earlier.
It is interesting thinking back and seeing how much has changed in the PHP landscape since then. Four years ago composer didn’t exist, Laravel didn’t exist, as well as many of the packages we rely on today.
Imagine all the changes that will happen over the next four.
I’m happy to announce my first ever WordPress theme which is modeled after a previous design of this site. It’s simple, clean, with a focus on typography and includes several post formats to make your site unique. The theme came to life earlier this year when I wanted to rebuild this site. I am constantly […]
Last week I moved my Laravel Newsletter off a self hosted newsletter application and over to Campaign Monitor.
