Two developers from Tighten (https://tighten.co/) discuss one programming topic every Friday in less than 20 minutes.
We talk about whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the strings and errors of outrageous microservices.
We recorded an episode when we were together in Texas for Tighten onsite but it was trash so we didn't put it out. Hopefully you like this totally non-trash episode where we get deep into composed properties and how to build an onboarding wizard, as well as a super nerdy segment where we just speak a bunch of Vim keybindings out loud.
FINALLY we have a good fundamental disagreement. Daniel is very right because he writes the shownotes. Caleb is horribly wrong.
After a longer-than-anticipated hiatus, we ramble our way to universal truth.
We talk sardines, horizon, machine learning, dusk strategies, snapshot testing, and testing VS Code extensions - it's just a good time...
Caleb wants a microdecisions framework and ventures into the wild woods of philosophy to discover the Truth®.
Our attempt to make a wishlist for new PHPUnit features devolves into yet another discussion of VS Code.
Okay so here's the thing. We already recorded this episode. This is version 2.
We're full of feelings.
We talk about microservices and testing them. #sorryForTheWait
We discuss the newly announced Laravel Certification program. There are a lot of sides to the issue. Everyone has opinions. But Laravel will survive.
Caleb's encountered a new git strategy called trunk flow! We talk about it as well as PRs, packages and all that jazz.
This week we do updates on string helpers, some other PRs, a little Ziggy talk, and we dig into the concept of "State Machines"
Caleb has been in the woods. Daniel has been living the lavish life of an open source maintainer.
Is that a cheeky Pull Request on the horizon?
Caleb helps Daniel get his refactoring wish-list in order.
We are at Laracon 2017. We didn't sleep much. We talk about Taylor and Adam's talks. Caleb REALLY wants a Laracasts Snickers.
LARACON NEXT WEEK! We do recent PRs and Single Table Inheritance.
Images. Where do you put them? What are they called? Thumbnails? Big ones? Ahh?!?!
We talk about resources.
At the end we have a little clip of our guest appearance on North Meets South (http://www.northmeetssouth.audio/) with Michael Dyrynda and Jacob Bennett.
This week we talk about the only thing in programming, Naming Things. Caleb wants to write a Bob the Builder book.
We talk about the routes file, Route:resource(), conditional redirects, and talk about some PRs.
We talk about feature traits in Eloquent Models.
Caleb wants a utopian world where all models are just a list of traits.
Daniel is very reasonable.
We talk about our favorite topic.
We talk today about the differences between
Collection, and Query
Builder contexts in Laravel's Eloquent ORM.
We discuss Laravel Macros, and wander off into talking about setting up Laravel relationships before saving.
