Introduction Hi, I'm Steven Maguire. I've been building software for over a decade and I'm currently excited about Laravel, a modern PHP framework that makes development easy and enjoyable. I've teamed up with Derek Weatherford, a junior developer with a Ruby on Rails background, to create a micro service project for managing product ideas. You'll be joining Derek and me through a step-by-step process of creating the service, complete with automated testing in under two hours. I've also made a free sample project available on GitHub that follows along with our conversation. You can find a link to that project in the course materials. Thanks for watching.
