Package development - and why you should care

“I think I implemented this somewhere before, let me check some old projects...“

Have you ever heard yourself saying something like this in one of your projects? I know that it happened to me a lot of times!

When I was given a task at my job, I would usually go and search for an available open-source package on packagist.org - and if nothing that suited the needs was available, I would go and build the solution for the specific problem I was given.

A lot of times, usually a couple of weeks or months later, I had to solve a similar problem and found myself copying parts of the code that I've written earlier.

Maybe I had to tweek the code a little bit, but at the end I was duplicating my existing solution.

"Marcel uniquely has the perfect combination of skill and teaching ability. Without hesitation, I’ll be first in line to pick up his new course."

Start to think in packages

That's when I began to think of my code as packages. That's also where most of my open source packages come from. It's stuff that I built and use in real-world applications in my day job.

And it's not about open source!
If you do not care about open source, or simply are required to close the source for whatever reason, building packages will still benefit you, your team-members and your employer.

There are so many benefits when you start encapsulating your code into smaller, more manageable chunks of packages:

  • You structure your code so that it becomes more manageable
  • Your code becomes easier to test
  • You can document packages easier than a full-blown application
  • Have re-usable software components for future use
  • Open Source your code and benefit from the PHP community

And many more.

Publishing your package

Whether you are going to open source your package, or rather keep it to yourself, this video course will show you how to make use of automated continuous integration systems like TravisCI for automated testing or StyleCI for automated code-formatting.

Frameworks?

Frameworks!

As you may know, I am a big Laravel enthusiast and most of my open source efforts are centered around the Laravel framework.

That's why this course will not only cover framework-independent packages, but also add in-depth tutorials on how to create great packages, tailored specifically for Laravel. Making use of custom routes, service providers, views, commands and much more.
