Something at the back of my mind that I’d like to do some day is start a CoderDojo coding club for kids to learn to code.
CoderDojo WA is in WA (obviously) and might be able to help a bit.
But the main website is coderdojo.com which includes whole heap of info on how to set up and run a dojo.
There’s also a private facebook thread that includes some local folk who might be interested.
I have a PHP app that needs to send email, and it recently moved from a real server to a Vagrant box (don’t ask!) which was not configured to send email out to the real word.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on a PC), thus: Continue reading “Adding a new App in Homestead”
My contact lenses tracking app eyeb.al is working, though it’s still missing help pages, a proper welcome page, etc.
Still – it works! Hooray!!! :-)
So PHP 7 was released a few weeks back. Which is great but I don’t want to move to it right now. I do want to move to PHP 7 some time in the next few months – but not today. Not on version 7.0.0. Continue reading “Getting PHP 5 back in Homestead”
So I spent over an hour trying to work out why
php artisan migrate rollback wouldn’t work. It kept giving me
[RuntimeException] Too many arguments in a little red box. Continue reading “php artisan migrate rollback – RuntimeException, Too many arguments”
