Client Side PHP post went "Dev Viral"


After mucking around with PHP in browser for a while, I decided to write a blog post exploring how it works and build something using it.

I was originally going to title the post something along the lines of
"PHP in the browser", but I decided to go with "Client Side PHP" for the shock/clickbait value 😼

The post ended up going viral in the PHP community, and I got around 20,000 users that read the article. It received around 100 upvotes on reddit, and was featured in 3 popular email newsletters.

Here's to hoping I can write something this successful again :)
