My first post on DEV


Hello, my name is Arif Iqbal. I am a Web Developer from Pakistan. I would like to start writing on DEV. My motivation behind writing on the DEV is becoming a better web developer, sharing my knowledge, and receiving feedback. Also, to document my learning and things I work on. This will primarily benefit me by looking back at what I have been working on, but it may be helpful for others too.

In fact, I have been thinking about this for a long time and procrastinated hard on this, until I saw this post two days ago

What will I write about?:

  • Web development in general
  • PHP, Laravel, and WordPress in particular

What would I like to hear from you?

  1. How did you start writing on DEV and how is it going on?
  2. What did you stop from taking the initiative and how did you overcome it?
  3. If English is not your primary language, do you care about the English of your post?
  4. How do you manage time for it with the job and other responsibilities?
  5. Do you have any advice for me to stay consistent here?

Find me on:

~ Thank you 😊

My impression is that there are not a ton of posts about PHP here, it's good to have some more!
