I've decided to start writing about the project here on my blog. I have no idea how many posts this will wind up being, or if there even will be others. Let me start by telling …

Every single aspect of your life is built up on layer after layer of trust, it's nothing short of staggering.

All About Middleware

Last week, a proposal to standardize middleware for PSR-7 was introduced to the PHP-FIG. The general concept of middleware is not a new one, and has been in use in the PHP world for many years. Several people have raised significant concerns with the proposal, which have gone completely unheeded by the author. Let …

He made an amazingly interesting point about change and different methods for minimizing the risk over time of change. I want to share some of what I've been thinking about along those lines. …

Tries and Lexers

Lately I have been playing around with a few experimental projects. The current one started when I tried to make a templating engine.
