The best way to build a PHP website

Laravel is a modern PHP development framework that is truly outstanding at what it does.

It provides a robust framework for web development that encourages best practices and makes coding sessions exponentially more efficient. It comes with a wide range of tools for website creation, database interaction, server deployment and pretty much everything you need to build and launch cutting edge websites.

It has a thriving community of passionate developers and its architecture allows us to take advantage of all the best open-source packages for front and back-end, as well as e-commerce packages and administration panels.

With Laravel I can build reliable high-quality web sites and applications. It's hard to justify building websites any other way.

Why Choose Laravel?

Laravel has many advantages over WordPress and other traditional website building methods:

  • It gives your web developer super powers, and the tools to build whatever you need.
  • Laravel is "design agnostic" and it doesn't stifle your creativity, or put constraints on your business logic. There's no need for compromise with Laravel.
  • Laravel provides easy optimisation of website assets such as CSS and JavaScript. It's quite easy to achieve great Google PageSpeed Scores with a Laravel website.
  • A Laravel application is very reliable and secure. You don't have to worry about your website going down or being hacked.
  • Your code can be easily stored and safely updated using code versioning tools such as Git.
  • There's no need to totally rebuild your website every time you want to update the design. A good developer will be able to help you evolve your Laravel codebase over time.

My Laravel Experience

I have been working with Laravel since version 4.1, which was released in 2013, and I have been keeping up to date with all the brilliant new features provided by versions 5, 6 and 7.

I am a member of Laracasts and I closely follow the lessons and practices of its founder Jeffrey Way and the other Laracast experts.

I have built many websites, admin panels and customer payment solutions with Laravel.

I have recently immersed myself in the TALL Stack - Tailwind, Alpine, Laravel, Livewire and I rebuilt my own website on it. I am very excited about building more of these highly optimised websites for my clients.

I am also very excited about the upcoming Statamic 3, which is shaping up to be the solution to a problem that I have been trying to solve for a long time - a solid Content Management System that doesn't get in the way of Laravel's amazingness.

I utilise as much of the Laravel Ecosystem as I can.

  • I love writing dynamic HTML templates with Laravel Blade
  • It's a pleasure to interact with databases using Laravel Eloquent
  • I generate highly optimised website assets using Laravel Mix
  • I use Laravel Artisan all the time and I write my own commands
  • I develop locally using Laravel Homestead
  • I deploy cloud servers with Laravel Forge
  • I have built a couple of APIs using Laravel Passport
  • I have a few Laravel Nova admin panels running on various websites
  • I run a Laravel Spark SaaS application
  • I have developed my own private Laravel Composer Packages which can be pulled into any project.
  • I have built multi-tenancy / multi-domain websites using Laravel's excellent Routing system.
  • I have dabbled in browser testing with Laravel Dusk.
