Hi, I'm Mike. I'm a web developer. This is my story.

Teaching Laravel

I love to learn from other developers and share my knowledge. At work recently I needed to explain the Laravel 4 workflow. There are a variety of ways to go about this, and I thought about the pros and cons:

The result is two presentations and an example application:

The first presentation covers most of the key subjects in the documentation by creating the Example Blog. It was a hit, so I was asked to make a second presentation to cover the missing topics from the first. Both presentations add code to the Example Blog. For a more robust example application including full CRUD, authentication, continuous integration, asset compilation, and more, check out my complete example application Bookymark.

I've also done a similar live code example for CodeIgniter at the Orlando PHP meetup group. Here are the resources for that:

Hopefully this helps improve your Laravel-fu, CodeIgniter-fu, and group teaching-fu like it did for me.
