WordPress is my alma mater and, so far, my only true solution for PHP. Is WordPress truly an alternative (incompatible) with Laravel?

Wow. Libhunt looks like a pretty cool service, even scraping reddit for mentions of the tech in consideration! libhunt.com/compare-corfu-vs-c

My headphones bluetooth to my phone great, always have. Recently I got Bluetooth working excellently on my PC , but there are tradeoffs. Anyone know an easy way to go back and forth, or connect the same headset to both?

We used to say things like, “Don’t write a web server in PHP. Always use the right tool for the job.” Then we wrote web servers in JavaScript.

I was recently trolled that "is only used by 3% of developers, so is completely irrelevant." There are many good responses, but what would yours be?

I have been annoyed at the informal prevalence of proprietary MatLab among some of my colleagues, and didn't realize that R is a direct alternative for most problem-spaces. I much prefer the opensource mode of R. Some useful comparisons:

There are methods of coding that are complete paradigm shifts. Algol-style was my default, such as Java, C, JavaScript, and distantly, Python. Then I learned functional programming, completely changing my approach to problems.

And then there is CSS, which is itself a completely different experience. Different debugging, development, and problem[solving] space.

Two types of simplicity: the monolith (emphasis MONO) and the Linux approach, single-purpose composable. threadreaderapp.com/thread/155
