Chronos: CakePHP replacement for carbon

Chronos is a drop-in library replacement for nesbot/carbon.

It provides immutable date/datetime objects. Immutable objects help us to ensure, that DateTime objects aren’t accidentally modified.

<?php
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use Cake\Chronos\Chronos;
printf("Now: %s", Chronos::now());
?>

Simplenote went fully open-source

One the reasons why I love about Automattic – is its freedom and community-driven development:

We are announcing today that all of the official Simplenote client apps are now Open Source Software under the GPLv2 license.

As an avid notes keeper, I used to  try various apps: 

So far, Simplenote stayed longer than all of the above. Minimal UI, that has only what’s required to keep notes organised. Synchronisation on desktop/mobile devices with available apps

Shortest explanation of Marketing

The first step is to invent a thing worth making, a story worth telling, a contribution worth talking about.

The second step is to design and build it in a way that people will actually benefit from and care about.

The third one is the one everyone gets all excited about. This is the step where you tell the story to the right people in the right way.

The last step is so often overlooked: The part where you show up, regularly, consistently and generously, for years and years, to organize and lead and build confidence in the change you seek to make.

Marketing in 4 steps

That’s what it’s all about.
