Hello, I’m Bill Keck, author of Laravel 5.3 For Beginners and Yii 2 For Beginners. I’m dedicating this blog to announcements on my books on PHP and other programming languages. It will also include announcements on any open source tools I create.
In 2014-2015, I wrote my first programming book, Yii 2 For Beginners. Programming in Yii 2 was a great experience for me, and even though I no longer use the framework, I learned a lot. To everyone who has bought a copy of that book, and to everyone who has left a review on GoodReads.com, thank you, I appreciate your support.
Since 2015, I have gravitated towards the Laravel framework, which was adopted at my workplace as our enterprise level framework. Once I learned how to work with Laravel, I quickly fell in love with it, and it became my framework of choice for all my projects.
In 2015, I started a second blog dedicated to Laravel only. My books on Laravel followed after that.
I’m always passionate about programming, I’m constantly pushing myself to lean more and more. I want to continue to grow as a programmer. I want to help others grow too, as others have helped me. And so welcome to the ongoing journey into the world of modern PHP. Now let’s go create something cool…
