Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Maximilian Schwarzmuller, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Laravel (PHP Framework) - Users and Authentication. I'm a freelance web developer, online instructor, and long term Laravel developer. Did you ever realize in how many applications you need to sign up and sign into to be able to really use them or do anything at all? Authentication is at the core of almost any web app you'll find. In this course, we're going to learn how to implement authentication in a Laravel application, and therefore open the gate to a whole new world of features we can now add to that application. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding how Laravel approaches authentication, diving into the difference between authentication and authorization, implementing authentication features like sign up, sign in to your app, and protecting routes against unauthenticated access. By the end of this course you'll be able to add authentication to all of your Laravel applications and therefore, you'll be able to control what users may access and what they don't. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with PHP and the basics of Laravel. From here you should feel comfortable diving into more advanced Laravel features, for example with my course on Building a RESTful API with Laravel. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to authenticate users with the Getting Started with Laravel Users and Authentication course at Pluralsight.
