On the Laravel Daily site they've posted an interview with Bobby Bouwmann, one of the most active (and awarded) members of the Laracasts website. Laracasts is an online learning site for instruction on the use of the Laravel framework and related technologies.
In recent years, Laracasts has become a no.1 resource for learning Laravel. Also, there’s a really active discussion forum on the website, so we decided to chat with one of the most active members there. Bobby Bouwmann has almost 1000 “Best Reply” awards on the forum, which is a huge number. So what is it like to be so active on Laracasts? Let’s find out.
In the interview Bobby answers questions about:
- what drives him to participate in the forum
- what value he finds in Laracasts
- how he handles "developers" that don't bother looking for answers in documentation
- what he does when he sees the same question asked over and over
His final answer offers some advice to Jeffrey Way about the forum itself, making a suggestion of how to improve it by "keeping the forum clean".
