wildside started a new conversation Passing An API Parameter Through The Url With Guzzle

I have a simple controller that consumes an API(OpenWeatherMap) with guzzle and generates a get request upon entry. However I would like that my zipcode parameter not be hardcoded within the codebase but can be dynamic and can be called through the URL. Please see reference code.

wildside started a new conversation Portfolio Friendly Project

Hey there,

Noob question but really interested in figuring this out. I am going through the various tutorials and learning a lot about modern PHP and laravel and have come to decision to start my very own project so that I can build my portfolio to submit to job applications. I am unsure what exactly the project should be because I don't know what would be considered to difficult for me to complete or too easy to not impress an employer.

For the senior devs on here. If you are looking to hire a PHP developer that would be using lets say a VUE/Laravel stack what kind of project would you consider impressive. I have a BSc in Computer Science already and also have a general understanding of programming as a whole. I just don't know what exactly to build that will showcase all aspects of concepts and techniques that would make an employer impressed.

I am open to all ideas :)

Thank you both for your timely responses as I have been subscribed to laracast for a few days now and have never looked back ever since. Better that anything Udemy throws at you. Techniques and practices are so modern and on point. I'm excited to see how far I get with this whole endeavor. If I have any questions I won't hesitate to ask!

wildside started a new conversation Membership Site

Hey everyone new to the Laracast community and also laravel in general. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask however I want to build a website for my chapter of my fraternity. The actual organization has its own website listed here:

https://kappaalphapsi.org/

Is it possible to achieve with lets say a Vue/laravel setup.

As far as functionality, I'd say the main thing other than displaying content and videos would be that chapter members can login and pay their dues online.

Any advice would be great. Please dont bash the noob question.
