What happened last week
It was a very action-packed week. A lot happened and I can't wait to announce it.
Also, I'm still reading a book called Press Reset by Jason Schreier. I love games, I've been playing them for about 30 years already, but it's really sad to read how horrible the whole industry is.
Mayank wrote a few words about Astro and I totally agree with him. For me, Astro (and also Eleventy) are the only Jamstack frameworks that are so easy to start working with and they just make sense.
Andrew Welch wrote a really ultimate guide to Composer. From the essentials, through versioning and ending with a list of very useful commands.
I've been using Composer for years, but still I found something new.
The first episode of The Dev Morning Show (at Night) was absolutely a blast. Listening to Rizel Scarlett talking about her DevRel job at GitHub was really interesting.
Gregorz Korba wrote a very interesting piece about Laravel's Facades, how it works under the hood and what are the drawbacks. As the author, I really wish it will start a discussion.
Kinsta is my favorite WordPress hosting company. Why? Simple - it just works and the support is superb. The only limitation was WordPress - until now. They just announced a platform on which we'll be able to host other applications (Laravel, Node - you name it).
Most of us, when thinking about eCommerce, think only about Woocommerce, Shopify, and sometimes Magento. But there are more players on the market - Shopware is one of them. Joschi wrote why it's worth taking a look at this piece of software - especially since it has an amazing community around it.
An interesting tool allowing you to convert Tailwind into normal CSS. I can imagine a few scenarios when it can be useful.
