If you would like to start using the worlds most popular PHP framework, this is the workshop for you.
We will cover from installing Laravel to building a basic application. Everyone will learn along as we go from a freshly installed Laravel application up to creating a basic web app that interacts with a database.
We will aim to cover the following (subject to change and class experience)
- Using Blade (templating)
- Using Eloquent (database ORM)
- Laravel inbuilt Auth
- Artisan (CLI commands)
- File Storage
Simon Bennett is a Software Consultant who works with Laravel daily, helping clients update there development practices and coding software for startups. He also runs his own SAAS for backing up DigitalOcean servers which of course is all built with basic Laravel.
This beginners workshop will run through simple code as we learn about Laravel.
Basic knowledge of PHP is required, I would recommend you know you know basic OOP.
To save time on the day, you will be contacted directly before the workshop with a guide on setting up docker. The reason we use docker is to make sure we are using identical environments on Windows/Mac/Linux.
Since Laravel used to build web-based applications (mostly), it would be helpful to a basic understanding of developing websites in PHP and MySQL.
- Bring your Laptop
- Have Docker installed
- A good IDE like PHPStorm is strongly recommended
- Working command terminal
- A GIT client installed
