Prairie Dev Don 2016 – Introduction to Laravel

I had the opportunity to speak at Prairie Dev Con on the topic of Laravel. Despite my nervousness I was happy to see lots of my friends in attendance at the conference. I have embedded my slide deck here. The talk is intended as an introduction to frameworks and Laravel in general.

Overview In this session we will explore the benefits of the Laravel framework, how to get started, and how to build an efficient platform using this powerful PHP framework. We will look at the code behind a simple application written in Laravel and dissect some of the interesting components. By the end of this talk you will be ready to start exploring PHP and Laravel for yourself.
This is a pretty basic introduction to Laravel, if you have experience in the subject you may find it more beneficial to just jump in and start playing. Check out our Docker integration: https://github.com/atrauzzi/laravel- drydock
