# Welcome, Fellow Artisans
My name is Ed. I'm a web developer with 20 years of experience, mostly in Perl and PHP. These days I spend most of my
time inside the Laravel ecosystem. This site serves as my playground and my classroom where I experiment, break things,
and share what I discover.
### About This Site
I'm currently running [Laravel 8](https://laravel.com)
using [Octane on a Forge Deployed Server](https://blog.laravel.com/forge-octane-support). I'm experimenting with
serving it on Vapor with Octane I've had limited success so far. I'll update this if / when I make the change.
The sidebar at the right works like it would in your editor. It pulls the files from GitHub, caches them, and displays
them here. Markdown files can be toggled between the rendered HTML and the markdown. The sidebar can be hidden with the
same key combination that you'd use to hide it in PHPStorm.
My goal is to just keep pushing this experiment as far as I can. Use it to learn, teach, and have fun. I hope you enjoy
it and hit me up if you have any ideas or feedback.
### Want To Get In Touch?
I'm on [Twitter](https://twitter.com/MaybeEdward) and [GitHub](https://github.com/edgrosvenor). You can email me at
<[email protected]>. And once in a while, you can find me at the bar during a PHP conference in the US or Europe.
