Talk

Zero to API with Lumen

APIs are rapidly gaining adoption and it can be hard to figure out where to start. Several tools exist to help you prototype an API with minimal effort on your part, but what if you could use something you’re already familiar with? In this talk, we'll make use of Laravel's Lumen framework to build an API using all of the bells and whistles of a framework without all of the full stack stuff we don't need. There’s some overlap in the wording for sure, but I’m happy to tweak and send it back to you if you’d like. I’ve given this workshop with 20 people before so I’m willing to start there and see how it goes. If I can have someone else in there with me to help people who are falling behind I could easily do 30 or more. We’ll have someone else at our booth so I might be able to steal them.
