Laravel is a PHP framework that has witnessed comparatively less attention than CMS heavyweights like Drupal and WordPress and frameworks like Symfony, but it nonetheless offers several compelling advantages for enterprise website implementations. Recently, a large organization worked with Tag1 to move legacy databases into a more modern approach that, coupled with Laravel and Vue.js, led to considerable improvements in not only developer experience but also user experience.

Moreover, Laravel is an excellent tool for architecting custom applications with complex logic, all without any complexity offloaded onto the developer experience. Thanks to the Laravel ecosystem, you can have a working PHP application with APIs and a functional single-page JavaScript application in Vue.js with minimal overhead. Instead of having to define low-level properties like in Symfony or deal with too many premade assumptions like in Drupal or WordPress, you can focus on user workflows in Laravel and benefit from a more reasonable learning curve as well.

In this Tag1 Team Talks episode, Laslo Horváth (Senior Laravel Developer at Tag1) joins guests Fabian Franz (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead at Tag1), Michael Meyers (Managing Director at Tag1), and your host Preston So (Editor in Chief at Tag1 and Senior Director, Product Strategy at Oracle) for a deep dive into why Laravel should be your choice when building a mission-critical PHP architecture that encompasses a decoupled front end in JavaScript and multi-level access control and permissioning.
