Websites, like everything else, vary based on the needs of your organization. Website development tactics range from completely monolithic, where your application is a single-tier with all of your code running on as a single program on one platform, to fully decoupled, where your front and back ends are managed by different systems.
In the first part of this three-part series, Senior Software Engineer Laslo Horvath joins Managing Director Michael Meyers for an overview of Laravel. Laravel is a PHP framework designed to meet the needs of new web developers with monolithic applications, to experienced developers who may need a fully or progressively decoupled website to meet all of their clients’ needs.
They also discuss some of the similarities and differences between Laravel and Symfony (the framework Drupal is built on), the community around Laravel, and how their ecosystem works.
