It wasn't until about 10 years later that my interest was piqued again. This time with Ruby on Rails. I dabbled for a while and eventually discovered Laravel. I dove head first into Laravel, and I've learned a lot over the past couple of years. Now, I find myself backtracking and learning the fundamentals of web development and PHP, which I missed trying to find a shortcut to success in programming.
I've started this blog to track my experiences and to have a place to log what I'm learning. So this is more of a tool for me than anything else. However, maybe I'll write something that can be useful to others. Either way, I'm excited about what is to come.
