Andrew Elkins presents a Laravel 4 PHP Framework!

  • Dec 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Andrew Elkins presents: Design and Implementation of a Flexible Application Architecture using Laravel 4 PHP Framework!

We've invited Andrew Elkins to present a Laravel 4 talk to the LAPHP Group.


7:00PM Meet, Greet & Eat

7:30PM Main Presentation

Followed by a healthy Q&A


This is an intermediate talk about Laravel 4 PHP Framework. It will spend a few minutes going through options on good resources on how to get started but will assume a basic knowledge of Laravel 4, PHP and composer. We will focus on how one would go about organizing a Laravel 4 based application, how to best manage dependencies and how to keep your application flexible for years of use.

Laravel is a modern PHP web application framework with expressive and elegant syntax. It is gaining a growing popularity among PHP developers lately. Laravel is built on top of several foundation components from the Symfony framework, giving your application a great foundation of well-tested and reliable code.

Laravel is accessible, yet powerful, providing powerful tools needed for large, robust applications. A superb inversion of control container, expressive migration system, and tightly integrated unit testing support give you the tools you need to build any application with which you are tasked.


Andrew Elkins spends his time between coding and spending time outdoors. Usually when he's on the computer he's spending time working with Laravel, or working at a startup NinjaMetrics a social value / predictive analytic engine.
