Hello Google Cloud Functions!
Hey! I just created my first Google Cloud Function!
No, I’m not going to tell you where it is. There is nothing to see there.
Laravel Notification Channel for Zoner SMS-Gateway
We decided to use Zoner SMS-Gateway for sending SMS messages in a Laravel application I developed for a client. It is a Finnish service for sending SMS messages with a simple HTTP API.
In Laravel, Notification is the abstraction for any kind of message that can be sent via a Notification Channel. Laravel includes implementations for some notification channels, and there are community-provided ones in Laravel Notification Channels site.
There was no notification channel implementation for Zoner, so I created one. As instructed in Laravel Notification Channels site, I made a pull request to get my implementation listed there, but so far there hasn’t been any reaction to it. I wonder if there is anyone updating the site any more. Meanwhile, you can get the implementation from our own GitHub repository.
Today I attended WordCamp Jyväskylä, a one-day event focused on WordPress, mostly from developer’s point of view this time. The event had presentations on two tracks, and it was difficult to choose which track to attend as both tracks had interesting presentations. I chose these presentations / workshops:
- Terraform, Docker, Heroku, AWS: WordPress DevOps in 2018, where Viljami Kuosmanen showed how to tie all these technologies together.
- Demo + työpaja: Serverless WordPress, where Arto Liukkonen introduced serverless architecture and Serverless framework and we got to create our own semi-serverless site on AWS.
- Esteettömyys osaksi WordPress-teemakehitystä, where Roni Laukkarinen told how we should consider accessibility when creating web sites.
- Accessibility testing workshop, where Rian Rietveld showed some tools for evaluating and testing the accessibility of web sites.
