Authorization (controlling access via permissions) is often confused with Authentication (identifying a user/request). Yet it's not as complicated as it may seem! In this talk we will build permission-granting features onto our app, demonstrating the multiple approaches offered by Laravel's Authorization layer (gates and policies) to control access. Along the way we will identify some tips and traps, discuss performance and code maintenance, and things to consider for more complex apps. We will also cover several popular packages which offer advanced functionality, and why/when to use them.
More will be announced. Keep up-to-date.
Full-day workshops take place on 28th Aug. and require a separate ticket.
