Introducing InfyOm Labs Blog
Greetings friends. Finally, the InfyOm Labs blog is here.
This is my first blog, so, of course, this is my first post. so I spent quite a huge time reading how to start a blog. Let me take you in the past and give you a brief idea, how all these things were started.
Back in 2015, I just got started with full-time freelancing. It has been almost 2 years, I started working with Laravel. And recently Laravel 5 was just released in Feb 2015. It was a great time when the Laravel community was growing really fast. Lots of developers were accepting Laravel as their primary framework for their mainstream development.
In these 2 years, I worked on a lot of projects where I developed some CRM systems, Analytics Platforms, lots of APIs for mobile applications, etc. And the common problem that I found was, every time when I start a new module or a project, I have to create lots of common classes like, migration, model, controller, crud views files, repository, test cases, etc. And this was a problem for lots of developers.
Then I started to streamline this process and this is how my first laravel-api-generator package was born. In just a few days, it has been started to be used by lots of developers and I got a lot of feature requests.
Almost after a year, I realized that it was missing some modularity architecture where a community can have the option to customize it the way they want to use it. Like customizing CSS framework, generator templates, etc.
so I decided to rewrite a full package with a modular way and then the second version of the package was introduced with a new name InfyOmLabs/laravel-generator as a part of my new company's Labs project with a new website and detailed better documentation.
InfyOm Labs is a place where we do various experiments and release it as an open-source project for a community.
Again, we got a huge attraction and even this time in a short period of around 6-7 months we completed 1000 stars on our new InfyOmLabs Github Account.
Just after some time, I got comments from a community that there should be some blog where tutorials & videos should be posted to use the generator package for some newbie developers and some more complex features of the package.
Then today, I finally started a blog and will post tutorials and videos for Generator as well as for Laravel & PHP from time to time.
so stay tuned for the videos and tutorials. Also, I would like to hear your ideas about the tutorials and videos that you want to be posted here. Just post a comment about your ideas below.
Looking for the first idea to be submitted. :)
