    Wow! The diatribe from 8:2018:20 was excellent. I wish every IT recruiter/employer could watch that and actually understand it. Being a developer is really hard these days.

  2. This is the first one-hour speech I've ever ever listened to entirely in my life!!!

    The hype around Laravel makes me want to vomit. Can I become a web artisan, extend eloquent and join the new renaissance? Don't get me wrong, I'm a developer with 20 years experience and I am using Laravel. But it needs to get over itself. It's a PHP web framework, not a revolution.

    Fantastic and genuinely inspiring

  5. I have never heard of frameworks or laravel before today. Now that I've seen this video, I want to be inside of it.

  6. I like this very much. Just to say that the important understanding of code is its API. APIs that are layered in depth one on top of the other. Want to do anything simply then start at the top but if you want to dig deeper then the quality of API and code under each layer matters. Larval is sold on the basis of easy understanding of its layer. The hours spent later will be debugging the deep layers to find any bugs!

    Jeffrey gets home and opens the door "What do you mean 'Even my wife could understand this??!!'" >:[

  10. This was hilarious.. This was actually the mirror
    of my programming life almost verbatim. Amazing..

  11. Thank you so much for this, finally someone discusses just how hard this stuff is. I've been building sites since the Geocities days and it just keeps getting more and more complex, this talk has helped me to give myself a break and actually realise just how much is involved.. Thanks again I'm going back to Laracasts to stuff more into my brain!

  12. Great talk, cheers Jeffrey.
