  • Speaking at PHP UG MN on Thursday so this is not a live podcast
  • On Sundays Twitch stream we re-built the first 5 lessons of the PHP login course. I’m planning to re-build the last four lessons on Monday on Twitch
  • On Tuesdays YouTube live stream we started planning the new PHP registration course.
  • Lots of experimenting with GitLab
