The main reason for me to write this post is to help developers better understand their own knowledge and if they are missing something to hit the next level in their carriers. An important note is that this post is not the universal truth about what a senior PHP developer should know. Keep this in mind and …

I know this issue is kinda old and everybody already wrote something about it, but I think it’s worth to talk about it one more time.

A week ago I decided to try a different GNU/Linux distro for my desktop. I use Debian for many years and I like to try a new distro now and then, you know, just to leave my comfort zone for a while.

In my last post about micro-frameworks a new question came to the table: Are micro-frameworks a good choice for beginners? What some of the options out there claim is that they are super simple to use and no matter if you are a novice or an experienced developer, they are a good option for you. Well, maybe this is not true. I mean, if you just want to prototype something, ok, a micro-fram…
