Currently it is not only simple script language for some pretty animation. It gives possibility to build full application operating on web browser.
Not new, but still not fully used, powerful mechanism, with better support than few years back. Give possibility to make better and faster application.
Still treated by some as script language, in new versions is real powerful object language with thousand of vendors libraries and frameworks.
One of the most popular PHP framework. We use it for web applications and web services.
Light modular PHP framework. Perfect for web pages and smaller applications.

It is said good developer need only console and notepad. The true is that artist need tools. When better tools he has, then faster and more efficiently he work. There are many tools available for developers and team/project managers. I also use some of them. Which tool is used really depend on project. For task management I used tools like mantis, eventum, youtrack, jira. For live contact I use slack and skype with bots integration. For project versioning I use git. Most of application I develop and test using vagrant. Other tools depend on projects: pm2, gulp, grunt, less, sass, phpunit, PHP_CodeSniffer, phpDocumentor, NetBeans etc.
In most cases web application is not stand alone system, most of app reuse some services. I had option to integrate with systems services like: google maps, google directions and other google APIs, wikipedi API, PostMark, CampaignMonitor, PayPal, Facebook, Twitter, twilio, pubnub, slack, eventum, youtrack, Narodowy Banki Polski Web API, aws s3, OneDrive and many other services.
Skills and knowledge is key for good application development.
Each day we learn new things. Each day we train our skills.
By taking on new tasks and challenges we are growing faster than by reading books and participating in courses.
My mission is not only to get new interesting project which will give me opportunity to make me better, but also to share my knowledge and help other developers to become code masters with mad skills.
Soon you'll find here numerous articles, tips and parts of code, that can help you in your work or hobby.
I want to be source of your force.
