A couple of years ago I fell in love with Bootstrap. Back then, when I had almost zero experience with HTML, CSS or any other programming language whatsoever, Bootstrap seemed like it was the perfect framework that I would be using for the rest of my life. It’s easy to use, the docs are very clear, it was being used in a huge lot of websites and there were plenty of tutorials about it on the internet. …

Cloudways is one of the go-to managed cloud hosting platforms at this moment. For a very affordable price, you can easily deploy new websites & applications on servers all over the world, from different providers (DigitalOcean, Vultr & more).

For example, when you are working on a Laravel only application, it’s super easy to get the data from the controllers into the blade views. However, when you’re working with Vue for the frontend of your application, you’ll first have to make a request to your API and then process the response. …

About a month ago I decided it was time to buy my first smartwatch. After I did some digging on the internet, I decided I was going for the latest Fossil smartwatch: the Fossil Gen 5. In this article, I will share my experiences as a first-time smartwatch user with this device.

First of all, I’ll explain why I chose this particular model. This might sound a little odd, but one of the most important aspects for me was the design of the watch. I’ve always worn analog watches as an accessory, not for their functionality, so I figured my…
