    Nice one.

    Well that's a start. Don't lose motivation.

    I wonder how hard it would be to build one of those zooming google maps. How much data is it in total? Currently my search index is 5.9 gbs which is crunched down to 30 mb so that it can fit in the server memory. The problem of memory management does seem to dissuade developers especially when cloud is so easy to get into but it leads to a even bigger problem of them not knowing or having vague knowledge of how these systems work.

    Hail to everyone.

    I am mostly a PHP/WordPress plugin developer with a focus on the food blogging and book review niches.

    @gW33Zy how are you managing with the changes that the PHP are making? especially with trash they are adding to PHP 7 and 8? Or that doesnt affect what you do?

    Because most of my work is WordPress related, I usually aim for PHP 5.6 feature support even though I develop with PHP 7.4. I only care about the speed improvements of > 7.0, not the new features and such.

    @gw55zy Same here. None of the new OOP stuff interests me and PHP was pretty fast. I am currently upgrading one of my apps to PHP7 but really all I am doing it removing the deprecated Preg-eval calls. otherwise 5.6 is enough for my usage.

    In the last 4 months (pandemic time) - I have taught my self react native and publish my first app

    @overkill package frameworks are all the hype among modern php dudes on reddit but they seem to waste a whole lot of time googling and reading docs. React is interesting but has the same problem. Eitherway glad to see people working on stuff.

    I completely agree... gone are the the days when you had code php, and a script that was a "SCRIPT", now these package pass array in to predefined function, 80% of which you will never use. which make anyone with google sense a php programmer.

    but pay me no mind i currently do the same...lol
