This month we are welcoming Chris Brosnan. They will be giving a talk titled:

🎤 WordPress as a headless CMS with Laravel

This talk will focus on using WordPress as a headless CMS, with the WP REST API, for improved performance or in projects where the product itself is not best suited to WordPress but where as a headless CMS there can be some benefits in using WordPress alongside another frameworks, specifically Laravel in this case. The case study will focus on a Laravel built professional networking platform with WordPress being used as a user friendly CMS for the blog element of the site while not being used to serve the site on the front end.
