On the last day of the month there'll be another meetup. We're returning to the cosy offices of Wunderman Antwerp.

We have two awesome speakers lined up. Coming all the way from Paris Nuno Maduro will talk to us about a cool project of his: Laravel Zero. Our original schedule feature Mattias Geniar, but to unforeseen circumstances Mattias won't be able to attend. Stepping in for Mattias will be our very own Freek Van der Herten, who will talk on how to hand media in a Laravel application. We hope to see you soon!

Don't forget to give feedback to the speakers: bit.ly/phpantwerp-february2018

The talk will have a live-coding session of 20 mins, where you will learn how to leverage Laravel Zero and Collision to make console applications.

Handling media in a Laravel application by Freek Van der Herten

In most CMS kind of projects you're going to let a user upload all sorts of images and files. Storing those files, associating them with models, creating thumbnails for them, optimizing images, can be a lot of work. Luckily laravel-medialibrary can do all that for you. In this talk you'll see a practical demo of how to get started with the medialibrary. You'll learn how to store files, generate urls to them, how to use different image profiles and how to use external filesystems to store big assets. You'll all so see some exciting new features that will arrive in the upcoming v7 of the package.

Speaker: Freek Van der Herten is a develop and prolific package creator at Spatie. He's also building Oh Dear (https://ohdearapp.com), a saas to monitor websites.
