Lets see with details what you are going to learn, what are you going to obtain at the end and of course what about the instructor background
XAMPP is a multiple platform software which easily manga multiple services like: Apache, MySQL and PHP. Lets see how to download, install and run XAMPP and the services to run our Laravel 5 project.
Composer is a dependencies manager, which allow you to manage easily all your packges in the project. Laravel 5 use composer to install all his components and dependencies.
Sublime Text 3 is a powerful code editor for multiple languages, and of course PHP is one of them. You are going to learn to use Sublime Text 3, all his features to a faster development of the project in Laravel 5.
The Laravel structure could be obtaining easily using composer. You are now ready to use composer and all the other tools to obtain and run a Laravel project in your environment.
Linux is more restrictive for the execution and sotrage permissions, so you require to solve the issue in an specific folders to allow Laravel works fine.
Lets see what you know about the local tools
The virtual hosts allow the usage of some "fake" address in the local environment. It will allow to emulate a realistic environment for Laravel in your local configuration.
XAMPP provide the PHPMyAdmin to easily manage the MySQL database. In this class you are going to learn to create easily the database to be used in the Laravel project.
Sublime Text 3 is very popular because his plugins, exists many cool plugins that could help you to develop your projects easy and faster, In this class you are going to learn about the installations of package control and some cool plugins for the course (emmet, SublimeCodeIntel and more).
In this class you are going to set a name for the application, and configure the local environment to stablish the conection with the database and the Laravel behaviour.
Lets see if you know all about your tools and local environment
How to follow class by class the project code and debug easily with it
During this class you are going to learn about the new structuro for Laravel 5, how it works basicly, and whera are located the main structures for the project.
The models has the definition of the structure of the entities in our project. They work with the database using Eloquent (the Laravel ORM).
The controllers has the logical functions for the project. Their are the bridge between the models and the views. In this class you are going to create three new controllers and watch how works the other default controllers of Laravel.
The routs are the gap between the URL and the actions. Basically math the user request URL (GET or POST) and call a function in a controller or a view directly.
The views are the frontend code, are the face of the application and what the user view. Is neccessary to do some modifications in the Laravel default views, and create newone to the password recovery.
The migrations allow us to create automatically the database structure using php artisan. Are useful to create our database structure in all the places where our project run.
The seeder allow you to create and insert automatically data inside the database with php artisan.
The middlewares allow you to controll some conditions in every request, for example if a user is valid, or a token match, an much more. With the Middlewares in Laravel is easy to control the most important conditions in our projects.
You need to handle all the possible failures in the application, and it is possible with handlers in Laravel. Taking into account that in the debug mode you need all the error details, but in a production envornment it is riskly. In Laravel handle exceptions is really easy.
Lets see about the seeders, migrations and routes
The user login is working fine, but you need to fix the account creation to include the question and the answer.
In this class you are going to learn about the usage of Requests in Laravel to validate the HTTP requests and create the password recovery system.
Implementing the views and the methods to allow a user to edit his name, password, question and answer.
Implementing the views and the method in the controller to show all the albums for a user.
Implementing the views and the method in the controller to show all the photos for an album, verifying the permissions of the user to see that photos.
Testing manually the Photos view and improving the forbiden message when try access the other user photos.
In this class you are going to create the view (the form) to create an album to the system, the request to validate the HTTP Request, and of course the controller method, to storage easily that album in the database.
To create photos is neccessary to obtain files and store that files inside the server. With Laravel this process is easy and faster.
To edit the albums is neccessary to verify the owner of that album and of course the existence of this.
Edit photos require to first delete the old photo and replace it with the new photo. During this class you are going to implement the feature to delete photos and of course edit the attributes.
To delete an album is neccessary to remove also the associated photos. Lets se how to do this really easy.
You have all the neccessary functions to remove photos easily from the platform. Lets see how to do it really faster.
The platform is done, so lets to take a view to see all the complete work.

During this class you are going to learn how to upgrade your Laravel 5.1 project to the 5.2 version, keeping all the features of the project.
I enjoy transmitting knowledge and skills to the people through classes and contents. Then, see how they build their projects and tools using the concepts learned.
Continually work on improving my speech, looking for the best way to reach out the students with the central concepts and skills, I love easy but effective ways to transmit every single idea.
I appreciate every minute developing, especially when I can use my skills to implement projects that can help other developers to learn or to make their job and lives easier.
I am constantly looking to work in new projects to leverage my skills and improving the lives of people with more facilities to share the experiences and findings with my students then.
I am excited to contribute to a better world teaching people new skills and, in the way, learn through the experiences and issues of them to improve our skills together.
