1. Eloquent or Fluent random row

    How can I select a random row using Eloquent or Fluent in the Laravel framework?

    I know that by using SQL, you can do order by RAND(). However, I would like to get the random row without doing a count on the number of records prior to the initial query.

  3. Composer 2, which some of your plugins seem to be incompatible with

    I tried to install an extension from the Magento market place but I got an incompatibility error...

  6. Changing PHP version with Valet and Homebrew (OSX)

    Recently, I updated the PHP on my machine to version 7.4 using homebrew for Mac OS only to then realise that one of my older projects that I still needed to maintain, made on version 7.2 would no longer work due to using depreciated PHP functions such as array_key_exists.
