I’ve been a huge fan of Laravel ever since we built an app for Crocs with it at Voltage. In 2014, some developers at Voltage wanted to join a Laravel meetup but found that there wasn’t one east of the Mississippi. So, they started one and I’ve been a part of it ever since. We talk about a ton of stuff at a high level.
So far, I’ve only used it to built a very simple app in Laravel, but want to get some more serious experience. I’d definitely take a lower-than-usual rate to get a project under my belt.
