What is Laravel
Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching. Laravel aims to make the development process a pleasing one for the developer without sacrificing application functionality. Happy developers make the best code.
Laravel vs CMS
As well as Laravel we write bespoke PHP code and also working with OctoberCMS, Joomla and WordPress depending on clients needs. We see a fit for WordPress for Blogging and lighter sites but if you want to build an application or a site into your business we currently favour Laravel as it is very flexible. The security and permissions model offers options a good support through the number of Open Source contributors working on Laravel all year. It has proved an effective framework to build APIs, Websites and Applications.
We give time to the Laravel Project and have committed work to helping mentor junior PHP developers and helpping out in the Slack community. Often found assisting in the Laravel Slack, LaraChat. There is a regular monthly meetup for BrightonPHP with good local and visiting speakers (Tristan presented at one last year). There is not a specific Laravel Meetup in Brighton, but the London Laravel is big.
Some recent Laravel websites I have built with my partners:
https://yesyoucan.rentals - Ecommerce sales funnel for renting home goods, APIs integrate with CRM and Facebook.
https://holdingbay.co.uk - This website uses Jigsaw Laravel project to create a static html pages.
We are available to plan and build, then migrate old websites to the Laravel or upgrade your Laravel 4.3+/5+ sites up to the latest secure version. We offer training for clients and work with frontend designers and then build up the website. We also develop custom Laravel PHP extensions to existing websites to offer new features or integration.
We attended conferences and meetups for Laravel and PHP.
