Good point.

We already have 'Launched 🚀' checkbox for products (with launch date & @wipbot message in the Telegram group), which could also apply to a project.

'Fitness 💪' updates could go under 'Health ♥️', but it could also be its own category.

I think 'Food & Drinks 🍽' would likely be a popular category here, too.

'Misc 👀' would be a good general catch-all.

Maybe “visible for everyone in their feed”?

Renaming 'product' to 'project' makes sense. Life is art and our #lives are a product of ourselves. I don't use Instagram, but I do enjoy using #nils as a colorful microjournal / blog.

The increase in microblogging and morning routines does seem to clutter the home feed of what once was just shippers and their actual products.

The feed is still digestible for now, but perhaps a future feature for WIP could be filtering preferences for types of products (projects!) to include. Existing project categories could be used here, and Life would be just another category.

Everyone, keep micro-ing! 🍄

Yes, great points on all accounts.

I want to embrace people sharing life updates and other non-work projects. But I agree it would also be nice to filter them.

Thinking what categories we should have. Most obvious would be "personal" and "work". Some others would be "health" and "hobby". Anything else that comes to mind?

650 cc is great, never too lackluster like some 250-300-500 cc bikes. Power is manageable, but hard to get bored of. You definitely won't outgrow that bike.

Kawasaki Ninja is a sports bike. Instead of sitting upright, you're all the way forward, with feet behind. Not ideal around town or for rides longer than 1h.

I ride a Monster 821 now, but I'm still a big fan of the naked Honda CB650 - especially 2019 model or later. Elegant, comfortable and fantastic 4-cylinder.

Here in Asia, Honda wins for servicing & parts availability, etc. Way better than Ducati. Apart from personal taste, there are other practical factors that should guide your decision when buying a bike.

But yeah, once you're comfortable riding a manual bike, you can't go wrong with SV650 (or CB650!).

I never understood why people should first buy an anemic 250-300 cc bike, unless they're coming from a bicycle or scooter. 650 cc is a great medium.

These general concepts aren't going away anytime soon, but writing a new book specific to a PHP product (in 2019) would be outside of my comfort zone.

What is your audience?

Thanks for your reply!

I am thinking mid-level developers who are moving towards senior positions and/or developers who work in large organizations.

I've picked up a specific product (Laravel) to narrow my focus and ensure the sample codes are similar. Although the same concepts can be described in a framework-agonistic way.

There is also one behavior pull that I am expecting...there is a debate in the community that Laravel is not "enterprise-ready" and there has been efforts made to debunk that. I expect to get some network traction if I can convince those advocates to spread about this.🤞
