I want to learn API development using laravel in depth. Can you suggest me fruitful and super handy resources?

There are quite a few out there that myself and others have created. However, I am currently working on a big refresh for this topic - so watch this space

Have you updated your packages to Laravel 11.x?

I'm working on it! But, I'm also having a baby 🙃 One PR at a time

Your best advice you'd give to a developer wanting to get out of the junior status?

Focus on one thing you enjoy, you can't be great at everything.

As a junior it's easy to try and focus on everything at once, but then your skills are low level across many things. Instead of getting better on one thing that could make you stand out.

However, some companies take too long to "promote" developers out of junior.
