I will be retreating to my cave until May 2017 to do two things: to work on LaSalle Software version 2.0, and to work on a full time client gig.

Until that time, I will not blog nor podcast.

I have a lot of work to do between now and May 2017.

See you at the Toronto area PHP meetups, including the one I organize!

LaSalle Software version 1.2 exceeds my original vision

Laravel Framework

Built on Laravel, the most popular PHP framework. Makes modern web app dev hugely accessible. Check out this online e-book, Laravel for Clients (one of the background scrolling images is Toronto's City Hall).


My LaSalle Software is available as free open source software. Free! (LaSalleCast is the exception). See it on GitHub here and here.

Key Web App Features Ready-To-Go

There is no "go-to" Laravel based content system, so I built one. Content system, customer management tables, user authentication, two factor auth, tags, open graph & twitter card meta tags, custom settings galore, contact form (for single and multiple contacts), etc etc. Your ready-to-go base for your custom web app.

Constructed as Composer Packages

LaSalle Software is made up of industry standard installable packages. Install what you need.

No Proprietary Eco-System Bullshit

I'm sick and tired of getting screwed by locked-in in-house eco-systems. The biggest payoff, lowest risk, widest choice eco-system is PHP's own Composer eco-system. Guess what eco-system LaSalle Software uses. Indeed, I use many wonderful, community accepted, independent packages from this eco-system.

Admin Area with Form Automation

LaSalle Software comes with a ready-made admin area that is easy on the eyes. Database forms are created auto-magically in the administration area via one-time specifications. Can you say: "Fast cheap prototype spin-up". You're welcome.

Special Podcasting Software

Powers my own podcasting site. This is specialty software available to my clients.
