From Idea to Prototype in 50 Minutes with Laravel

50 minute beginner seminar


Most developers can't stop coming up with great ideas for products and packages. But the time and effort it takes to go from great idea to working prototype can often keep us from ever getting started.

Laravel provides a set of easy-to-use tools that minimize the pain of taking our apps from idea to reality. In this talk we'll take an idea for a simple SaaS startup, spin up a new Laravel project, create a prototype, and get it hosted on Forge and online in no time at all. We'll cover the basics of each piece of the Laravel ecosystem, and touch on frontend and backend development, server management, and rapid application development. By the end of the talk, each attendee will be equipped to take their ideas from first concept to prototype using Laravel, Elixir, Homestead, Forge, and more.
