What we're about

Proven Foundation. Laravel is built on top of several Symfony components, giving your application a great foundation of well-tested and reliable code. Let's get together and learn, share our knowledge and experiences about this cutting edge PHP framework. And why not have a bit of fun in the meantime? ;) Geeks, devs, UI ninjas, entrepreneurs, everyone is welcome to come alone regardless your knowledge level. We'll make the most of it combining our skills!

Laravel Meetup September - Testing + Security

We have two great talks lined up on advanced testing in Laravel. Doors will open at 6pm, with presentations to start at 6:25pm. We will have food and beer catering, so please don't be late ! We will likely have time for lighting talks, so if you are interested, please let us know on slack! Join PHP Australia slack: https://bit.ly/2JmrPQV Then join the channel #laravel ===== Talks tonight ===== + Making your test suite better, faster, stronger ~ Tim Macdonald No one likes a slow test suite. Tim is going to show you a few things you might be able to implement on your existing projects to improve the speed of your test suite. We are gonna start off with a real test suite and incrementally make improvements to get it running faster, all done live showing improvements each step of the way. We will also discuss what impacts different parts of the framework have on your test suite and do a dive into the Laravel TestCase and what is hidden under the hood. + Why You Shouldn't Care About Security API development is fun! But password security is boring. It's also harder than you'd think. Find out how to ramp up your development productivity, and concentrate on the core purpose of your product, by adding OAuth and OpenID Connect support, and leaving the identity and security to a dedicated identity management platform. A live demo shows how simple this can be. ~ Ben Dechrai is a technologist with a staunch focus on security and privacy. This started at the age of 11, when he wrote software to stop his mum from breaking the family PC, and resulted in his working as a developer evangelist for Auth0. He enjoys helping developers find the joy of experimentation, from ethical skulduggery to subversive automation, and can be found on Twitter and Instagram at @bendechrai. ===== This event will be hosted by Cover Genius ===== Thanks to Cover Genius for sponsoring the beer & pizza and event space! + Location: WeWork 333 George St WeWork is the platform for creators.

After our January event, discussing improvement and new ideas for the group, this was one of them. So, if you RSVP 'yes' you'll get a notification whenever some comments on the event (provided you have the right settings on Meetup for this group). Your initial comment could be something like: • "How do add authentication to my application?" • "How do I write a simple API?" • "How do I test my code?" • "I would like to have another live session [Taylor Otwell]" • "How do I improve security / performance / etc?" • "Can we discuss Spark / Dusk / etc?" • "Can we do a hackthon on TDD?" Then, if someone is able to answer that question or address the topic, we can schedule it for the next meetup as a presentation. Ideally it should not be very specific, low level questions. For that we the Laracasts forum, stackoverflow and more. Doing this this way, people with more experience would be able to help the group (and specially the new ones to Laravel) and we all can learn from each other. Thanks! Seb
