Coding Again

After a few years of being a manager, I’ve gone back to development. im working on a project using Laravel and Vue.js. its the first time I’ve touched the frontend in roughly 10 years… and WOW have things changed.

There are now multiple competing build tools and chains: gulp, grunt, npm, etc. Theres no winner yet. It feels like the early days of php.

But THANK GOD for Vue. Not having to deal with the DOM makes javascript bearable, and dare I say it, kind of fun. I still DETEST the compile step (which is why I went with php and not Java or C), but at least it’s relatively quick, and easy to setup and run.

Anyway, today I’m at GrumpyConf in Ingersoll. My first dev confrrence in ages. Having a great time :)
