Seiden Group colleague Josh Hall and I will attend Laracon, the Laravel conference, in NYC on July 25-26, 2017. Getting these coveted tickets required persistence — they sold out quickly!
Laravel is a hot PHP framework with a loyal community. We’ve been building our Laravel practice and look forward to sharing the latest tips and techniques with our clients.
According to creator Taylor Otwell, the first commercial installation of Laravel was on an IBM i system!
Yes, our favorite platform has been at the forefront of Laravel adoption. We expect to see more of this framework running on IBM i.
Taylor created Laravel in 2011 because existing PHP frameworks lacked certain features he considered to be important, including built-in support for user authentication and authorization. It has grown into one of the most popular PHP frameworks, with a strong ecosystem.
Watch this space for our report on what we learn at the conference. Let us know if you have specific questions about using Laravel, particularly on IBM i.
