Building modern applications requires a specialized toolbox of skills and tools. We are going to be using Facebook as an example to build a social network platform from scratch. We will be using modern development techniques that mimic real-world team flow along with some added tooling to help aid with that.

Why did we choose this as the sample project?

Most students that take this course will know or at least have an understanding of Facebook. Instead of spending time trying to explain what our project needs to do and what the expected functionality needs to be, we can jump straight into writing code. This helps facilitate the comprehension of the new concepts we are introducing.

What if I am not sure that I have the skills necessary?

This course is what would be considered an intermediate level course but with basic knowledge of PHP & Javascript, even the most beginner will be able to acquire new skills and level up their skills. Working knowledge of Laravel & Vue will increase your chances of grasping every concept. But all and all, every lesson goes into great detail about the “why” we are doing what we are doing.

Will there be boring slides?

Absolutely not! Every video will be engaging, thoroughly explained, and straight to the point. Showing you every nook and cranny of Test-Driven Development using Laravel, Vue, Vue Router & Tailwind CSS. Who this course is for:

  • Web developers wanting to build robust APIs
  • Web developers wanting to level up their modern JavaScript knowledge
  • Web developers wanting to level up their knowledge of the Laravel framework
  • Web developers that are front-end developers wanting to learn back-end
  • Web developers that are back-end developers wanting to learn front-end
