I was chatting to my friend about putting a newsletter sign-up form on the blog he's busy making. Then it occurred to me that I didn't have one on my blog, and that I didn't even know how I was going to embed a Mailchimp sign-up form in a Next.js site.
I'm sick and tired of having to research how to do this, every time I set up a new machine. So, I'm writing this for me as much as I'm writing it for you. I'm going to show you a couple tips for displaying and formatting PHP code, in VSCode...
It’s been a while since I wrote here, mostly because I’ve got so much going on that I’ve had to choose between building and talking about what I’ve been building.
I like to code on the go, but I don’t always like to bring my laptop with me. So, I’ve tried many iPad apps centred around coding, Git repository management, and code execution.
