Implementing a Restful API with Lumen

Due to the rise of mobile application restful back ends are in high demand. There are several PHP frameworks that promise to make this simpler. In this presentation we'll use Lumen to implement and test a simple restful API with authentication. We'll also cover aspects of the Eloquent ORM.

Venue: Vivint

Vivint
3401 Ashton Blvd
Lehi, Utah 84043

How to get there:

The address is 3401 Ashton Blvd, though some mapping tools put that a little far down the street (if so, try 2719 Ashton Blvd instead). It's the first office building south of the intersection, nearest to the Dickeys BBQ on the corner.

Just come in the front door and we'll be on the first floor, to the right.

The front door will be locked, but there's a guard on duty right inside that can let folks in, and we're really close to the front door, so we should be able to help people get in pretty easily.

If you can't get in, call 801-391-8249 and we'll get you in!

The After Party

We will be going to JCW's for the After Party. Come check it out with us.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday!
