php[architect] magazine has just released their January 2015 issue - "Be The Boss". This issue includes articles talking about freelancing, the importance of communication in open source and the usual columns.
This month is a personal favorite of mine, as the theme is “Be the Boss”. It speaks to those who wish stop working as an employee and strike out on there own, something I’ve done twice in my life. In Get Off the Freelance Roller Coaster!, Yitzchok Willroth (@coderabbi) talks on the importance of not placing all of your eggs in one basket (or projects with one vendor). In Choose Your Own Adventure—Freelancer or Founder?, Joshua Warren talks about the two avenues that are open to those going it on their own, freelancer or business founder.
Articles in this month's edition include:
- Get Off the Freelance Roller Coaster! (Yitzchok Willroth)
- Choose Your Own Adventure - Freelancer or Founder? (Joshua Warren)
- PHP and OS Communication (Julien Pauli)
- An Introduction to NodeJS
The usual columns (Laravel Tips and Education Station) return once again as well as a a new one from David Stockton called "Leveling Up" to help you become a better developer. You can pick up your own copy from the php[architect] website.
