Search your feelings, you know it to be true

It was almost four years ago when I said that PC Gaming was going to die. The state of the PC Gaming scene, both as an industry but also as users with PC Gaming machines, was in shambles. Once a place where technology drove and pushed forward, a decade…


Your favorite IDE will pick them up and make your life easier

When using the Eloquent ORM, you will note there is a lot of magic going around. With that bunch of logic behind the scenes, it’s normal for an IDE to just not understand what’s going on.


Thanks for the fix on the article.

I don't consider nonsense to NOT but a PC exclusively to play games, or as a secondary function:

- There is no AAA exclusive games for PC since 2010 except Half-Life Alyx which requires a VR Set.

Let me tell you a story of multiple processes caching the same thing, over and over again

Some months ago, I created a project for a client that scaled from one to around 5~10 processes at the same time. …


Time doesn’t have to be a sin to handle

There is also an assumption that handling time can be a pain in the you-know-where, so it’s normal that most applications try to use manage time only if needed, and usually in a very simple manner. UNIX timestamps are the norm, and time formatting is mostly exclusive to presentational aspects.

PHP 8.1 will land with Fibers support in some months. Supposedly, Fibers are meant to enable more performance on PHP applications, as long these are used instead of just shoving blocking code. It’s a novelty considering the single-threaded foundation of the language itself.
