- What Are Your Take Home Skills?!
What are your take-home skills? Are you portable? HMRC is very tight on take-home pay. They try to control what you take home. But this is untrue in terms of skills because they can’t prevent what skills you take home. A press release with the title HMRC highlights a decade of bizarre excuses and expense claims reported that HMRC gets a bunch of amusing and out-of-the-world reasons during the Self Assessment deadline.
- Saw Something on Twitter and Thought It's a Wonderful Idea? But then ...
You saw a link preview on Twitter. You glimpse the URL and wonder, “Wow, what a great idea that is! Why don’t I get this type of idea?” Then you click only to find out— no, it’s not what you assumed. Take Business for Developers as an example. When you saw this URL, you might have thought this is all about selling small businesses to developers.

- How to Promote Backend Development Work
I was once working on a project that involved working with analytical stuff— charts and so on. It was like Google analytics on steroids, and I worked on this project for three months. I imported data from several places and designed the database using my back-end code. It was a one-man show where I did everything on the project, from top to bottom. Three months had passed, but I could not show much progress.
- Dear Moaners!
MKBHD, aka Marques Brownlee, does a video series prefixed with “Dear”. Dear Apple…, Dear Twitter…, Dear Samsung…". He moans or points out problems with those companies’ products or even at the company itself. I am sure you, as a developer, are as frustrated. You spot tons of problems. One of the advantages we developers have is finding problems; we sometimes encounter issues in our software and mostly fix these. We see problems in other people’s code, our code, and products everywhere, but we also try to find solutions for them.

- My YouTube Journey - I am Making Coding Tutorials
I know I am not active in my blog these days, I can make lots of “excuses”, but I am just gonna provide two reasons: I have moved to the UK. I am making YouTube videos.

- Ajaxify Your Laravel Application Automatically
You have a “nice little” Laravel app. You return views from your controllers, you redirect with a flash message when you’re done with something or when something goes wrong. But sometimes you need to send Ajax requests to the server. And this time those views and redirects don’t make sense. You need JSON response. You create two different methods in your controller, one returns JSON and one returns View, because you also want the page to be loaded from server when user(or search engines) hit the url directly.
