For schools, banks, and post offices today may have been an off day, but not for me and my continued journey back into the world of code. Today I knocked out another four easy challenges (2 in PHP, 1 in Ruby, and 1 in Python) and two moderate challenges (both in PHP). The challenges were a good way to help me expand my understanding of the syntax of Python and Ruby.
In addition, I started digging in to Laravel, a PHP framework. I like what I see so far, although I’ve only just gotten into a tutorial. It feels a lot like Ruby on Rails, as it has a lot of pre-built automation. You can create controllers, models, db migrations, etc… with a few commands, cutting out a lot of the tedious repetition that befalls a lot of OOP projects in PHP. Once I’m done with the tutorial, I’ve got an idea for a project that would be an excellent candidate to try in Laravel.
