Quick update here, Stack Overflow (SO) is currently in its annual election cycle. Help the community that helps you exit vim.
To me the whole
coding school bootcamp has always seemed like land mind field waiting for a chain reaction detonation. That said
The Iron Yard is one of the more well established and respectable institutions. and that makes is even more saddening when they announced recently they would be closing all campus locations. This action will obsessively cut off hundreds of thousands of field entering individuals from mentors, channels of community, new life opportunities, and much much more. I really hope another group / organization can grow from this unfortunate series of events to help continue to grow the development field.

Anyone else excited about headless chrome?
New Package: Stripe + CommandBus + Yii2
I got tired of writing out the entire Stripe class requirements coupled with the need to trigger stripe events from different areas of the application motivated me to create this package. It is by far NOT production ready but lays the ground work and ideas for the package. Take a look, leave a comment, contribute.
Also have another one in the works that combines Google Chrome, Codeception, headless browser testing, and replacing PhantomJs (since the maintainers are deprecating the project).
A very early alpha release but as I am a fan of the command bus design pattern I thought this would be a nice addition: https://packagist.org/packages/davidjeddy/stripe-command-bus-interface
PS: Again, this is very very very very early alpha stuff here. YMWV
