In last week’s laravel post, I mentioned that Laravel is an open-source PHP framework that uses the model–view–controller (or MVC for short) architectural pattern. This week, I want to drill down more on what that means. Continue reading Learning Laravel: What is Laravel?
Yup, I am.
Last year, I posted a lot about how I was building a state parks app to help with my goal of eventually visiting every park in the Wisconsin State Parks system. The most recent post was around November, though. Well, I am working on the app again and I am hoping to have it finished this month (by Memorial Day, ideally).
Beyond that, if you have any questions, comments, etc, feel free to drop a comment below.
I spent years writing Laravel code at UWM but you might have noticed that I almost never wrote anything on this blog about it. I am hoping to address that here and now.

Today’s post is going to cover borders, shapes, and backgrounds. Let’s get started. Continue reading Learning Tailwind: Borders, Shapes and Backgrounds
I haven’t talked about regular expressions much on this blog and that is mainly because I don’t feel like I understand the topic enough. We are going to work on that, today. Regular expressions (or regex) are patterns used to match character combinations in strings. There are regex strings to test for valid phone numbers, email addresses, IP Addresses, credit card numbers, and much more.
