Hi, I’m Tony Sanjaya, a web developer at Stampede Design. As my experience in web development grew over time, I needed a place where I could share my thoughts and findings. Other times, I wanted to share with others on what I have built.

It needed to be customisable, free of complications and easy to maintain.
Sublime Text is a fast and powerful text editor that has many features catered for programmers. It is available on OS X, Linux, and Windows.

It has been 5 years since its introduction to the web and now its latest version is arriving soon, Laravel 5.3.

As a developer, we want to maintain our code well. This is to ensure that ourselves and others can understand the code later on. We should have a standard in writing a code, and one of the most basic collections of principles that can help us is Clean Code. When your code is clean, it becomes better, understandable and a lot more maintainable. The best method to achieve this is refactoring.
