API and backend development


Introduced in 2011, Laravel has become the most popular free, open-source PHP framework in the world. It can handle complex web applications securely and simplifies the API and backend development process by easing common tasks such as routing, sessions, caching, and authentication.

One of my favourite backend systems/frameworks and definitely the one where the majority of my experience and skills lie. I've worked to develop systems small and large with laravel, and they have been nothing but 1st class.
I have extensive experience in the following:
  • API development including authentication and security.
  • Working with events, jobs, webhooks and system triggers.
  • Building custom service providers, middleware and console functions.
  • Database modeling and seeding.
  • Developing with 3rd party server and cloud based software such as Redis, AWS, Firebase and more.
  • Application level performance, and caching.
  • Writing unit and http tests as well as server monitoring and CI development.
  • Building SAAS application infrustructures.
