I said in my previous post that a lot can happen in 2 years.
In that time span I've:
Moved to using a MacBook and OSX.
- OSX being very BSD-like makes it an prime target for web development. It isn't the second class citizen Windows
is in the Ruby or Node.js communities.
Transitioned away from .NET and don't really miss it. I do randomly play around with .NET core when possible but I
haven't actually built anything with it.
- This was honestly very huge at the time but I still feel I made the right decision. Though Windows 10 is the
platform Windows 8 should have been and likely would've kept me on board.
- Transitioned to PHP and web technologies full bore. I'm no fan of the PHP language but in the era of Visual Studio
2012, a dynamic language that only required refreshing my browser was much faster than waiting on the compile cycle.
