I have been using Docker for past few years as a dev environment. It's easy to set up, run and maintain. Recently I decided to containerise one of my projects and check if running docker on production would be as easy as running it locally.
Web-to-slack was created "by mistake". I was looking for a comments system I could use on my blog. All of the sudden I though "hey, maybe I could use Slack for this?". Well, I could but it wasn't the best option. I was left with some code and vague idea for it. This is how web-to-slack was born.
For some time now I've been struggling with an OAuth authorisation. Every time I wanted to build console app that uses service secured be OAuth I had the same problem - how to provide user name and password without a browser. After some research I came up with an idea - I can use headless browser and Selenium to interact with it.
One of the greatest additions to PHP environment is Composer. Together with packagist.org provides enormous amount of packages for every PHP developer. I know, PHP had package manager before it was cool (I'm talking about you PEAR) but Composer was something everyone was waiting for.
Ever since I started building websites I always used some kind of AMP stack. As my skills grew my stack was growing with it. First problems occurred when we had two major versions of PHP out in the wild - 4 and 5. After a while problems were piling up as I was adding Redis, Mongo, APC, Memcached, Elasticsearch and other popular tools to my stack.

When you are young developer and all you do is writing code, handling projects may be overwhelming. You need to analyse project, create tasks, choose technology, plan your schedule, and so on. I've been there and after many different projects I have created small list used every time I'm working on a new project.
Why another static site generator? Because why not. If it's good it should be out there helping others with their static sites. Fun fact about Blade Builder - it was designed as simple tool for frontend developers working with Laravel.
Back in the days styling checkboxes and radio buttons was a traumatic experience. Every time I saw design with cute, colourful checkboxes I knew it will be a pain in the… lower back. Fortunately since IE9 we can use :checked pseudo-class to play with checkboxes and radio buttons.
Chevron is quite popular visual element used in all sort of sliders and buttons. The most popular way to implement chevron is to use font like Font Awesome or Glyphicons. The downside is that we have to settle with a given shape. If we need to use custom chevron our last resort is an old school png file.
Hello World! is a blog I started 8 years ago. At first it was a place where I was storing knowledge I needed but it didn't took long to realise that this small blog is gaining relatively large audience. So I started to write about everything I found interesting. Occasionally I wrote a piece of crap but in the end I don't regret anything I wrote here.
