It has been nearly 7 months since my last installment in the “Building a PHP Framework” series. In that time, I’ve gotten a number of emails from readers asking about the status of the series. This post will attempt to answer that question.
My absence from the blog is pretty simple: I was completely drained and burnt out. I started this blog in April 2018 and posted pretty consistently until August 2018. In that same time span I worked a demanding job, worked on the framework, worked on freelance projects, and interviewed for an amazing position at a great company. I ultimately didn’t get the position and after the interview process (which took roughly 3 months) was over, I had to step away for awhile.
I do plan to finish the framework. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed coding it and writing about it. Since my last post, I’ve started work on implementing a router. My goal is to finish it at some point and write about it, but I’m unsure when that will happen at this moment.
I can’t thank you enough for your interest in my code and my writing about code. I never would have imagined the response I’ve gotten to this series. It will return, I don’t know when exactly but it will.
In the meantime, follow me on Twitter (@DevelopmentMatt) where I will occasionally write something worth reading.
