=========

Journey of building Laravel’s first entity relationship (ER) diagram visual studio code extension.

Description:

ER Diagrams already exist as generators which is great, but the process can be made a lot more user friendly. This talk is about my journey, decisions, and how I am going about building Laravel first ER Diagram visual studio code extension.

About Jamie:

Jamie has been a long time member of PHP South Wales, and this will be his first talk for us. He currently works as a Junior Developer for a local company called CashCalc, who are a financial planning and cashflow modelling software company. When he isn't writing code or joining in with the PHP South Wales community he is often found reading a book or 10.

Building a realtime dashboard powered by Laravel and Livewire

Description:

At Spatie we have a Laravel/Livewire powered dashboard that displays interesting data, such as statistics from GitHub, Twitter mentions, the up/down status of our sites, and much more. We've recently open sourced the dashboard, so everyone can use it. https://docs.spatie.be/laravel-dashboard

In this talk, you'll learn how you can set up your own dashboard in no time. After that, we'll talk a dive under the hood and you'll learn how it works internally. Finally we'll take a look at the pros/cons that Livewire brings to the table compared to WebSockets.

About Freek:

Most people in the Laravel community know Freek, and even more of them have used some of the code he has written. Freek lives in Belgium and is a passionate PHP developer and Laravel enthusiast. He is a developer and co-owner of the digital agency Spatie, a Belgian digital agency with a big influence. With millions of downloads across hundreds of packages, Freek has solved more problems than most in the PHP world.
