There and back again.
I like to learn new things. I like to explore. And I like to diversify myself.
I became interested in some constructions for using C++ to make websites. That went on for preliminary explorations but it seemed a bit dense. Then I happened along Go. This looks like a great language for many reasons. I started working in Go and making some sample sites. Then after a week or so, I realized I had let myself get sidtracked too far.
I came back to the fold… back to laravel, only to discover some new tools that I am now ready to use. Primarily, testing tools. I just started to look at the new laravel package called dusk and got it hooked up and running faster than any other testing materials I have used so far.
In just a short order, I had it up and testing a site I have for even more complex things like authentication and crud and databases. Nice. Now I have to get all the holes in my testing filled in. Lots of work but nice tools to do it with.
