Recently I’ve got some inspiration, watching video series or so-called “vlogs” by entrepreneurs like Gary Vaynerchuk. So decided to start something like that in Laravel world – a DAILY video series (except weekends). Short 5-10 minute episodes where I will share my thoughts about various topics from Laravel and web-dev business.
