Do you want to learn how to build a follow, unfollow system like Twitter & Facebook ?

Then this course is all you need, in this course you would learn how to implement a follow and unfollow system with PHP Laravel and MySQLI like Twitter and Facebook. So basically, a user can follow & unfollow another user and you can see which user is following you and how many followers you have.

You would also get a real time notification soonest a new user starts following you, plus a notification sound played on your browser like we have in top applications like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I would take you through a step by step guide on user authentication & registration, where we would be validating users form input in real-time, so we don't have to reload our website to show validation errors.

Who is this course for ?

This course is for Beginners who wants to -

  1. Learn how to implement axios, a JavaScript library into there application.

  3. Learn how to make every operation on there website looks real-time - operations such as notification count, followers count etc.

This course was made for both beginners & professionals, i would be taking this course on a slow pace, so we get a proper understanding of how things work, i would not be performing any magic :-) , and by magic i mean copy pasting any code , i would explain how every function works as we create them.

I look forward to see you in this course as we build amazing web applications together.
