I'll be in Amsterdam next week for #LaraconEU and I'm looking for a co-working space to go on Monday. Any suggestions?
The Laravel conference I was going to attend in Amsterdam was cancelled, but it's finally been re-scheduled for April 26th. This time it looks a lot more sure to happen 🤞 See you there #LaraconEU!
#NewProfilePic I've changed my avatar for the first in almost 8 years! And I've got @email@example.com to thank. For those who don't know him; he's designed the last couple of Laracon websites. So I'm very happy to both renew my image and strengthen my identity as a Laravel fanboy :).
We just opened a couple of positions for the Mobile Apps team at Moodle! A PHP developer and an Ionic developer. We are a small team based in Barcelona (working remotely), check it out if you want to join us.

It's been a long time in the making, but I finally have a visual update for my upcoming #Solid app! It's still work in progress, and I don't expect to release it at least until the beginning of next year, but it's starting to show its real form :)
Starting in an hour!
#ZeroData swap 4 will be a 'hello world' presentation with @noeldemartin and i for the simplest implementations for each protocol https://chat.0data.app/t/zero-data-swap-4-hello-world-november-24-2021/51
In January I'll be traveling abroad for the first time in 2 years, and what better occasion than to attend #LaraconEU in Amsterdam. I don't know how it took me this long to attend a Laravel conference, but it's finally going to happen. I'm super excited to meet my fellow artisans!
Some months ago I uninstalled WhatsApp from my phone, and it's been by far the most difficult technology to stop using... Only yesterday I was changing my internet provider, and they required me to have a WhatsApp account to confirm the appointment with the technician.
So I hope this "meta" thing doesn't catch on -.- https://about.fb.com/news/2021/10/facebook-company-is-now-meta/
If you enjoyed this post, we have been talking about it in the Solid Forum and the Zero Data Chat:
One of the reasons why I am working with Solid is that it embraces interoperability as one of its core values. But there is a lot of nuance about what that looks like in practice. In this blog post, I share my thoughts on the topic. https://noeldemartin.com/blog/interoperable-serendipity
I've just released an alpha version of an app I'm working on. It's not production-ready, but I'd appreciate it if you give me some feedback: https://forum.solidproject.org/t/request-for-comments-crdtish-approach-to-solid/4211/14
Today makes 10 years since I started my journey as a developer! Here's what it's been like and what I've learned. https://noeldemartin.com/blog/10-years-as-a-software-developer
Laravel turned 10 years old today!
I can honestly say that Laravel is the single piece of software that has inspired me the most in my programming career. I can't imagine my life as a developer without Laravel, thank you Taylor and the rest of the awesome Laravel community. Here's to another 10 years 🍻.
RIP Kentaro Miura.
Even though he left us too soon, the Golden Age arc will always be one my favorite in manga. We won't get the redemption, but in a way it's fitting.
