Learn Inertia

Single-page applications are great, but they come with the challenge of maintaining two separate projects — the client and the API. Inertia serves as the solution, seamlessly connecting these two components and enabling you to build everything in one application (a monolith) while achieving the same outcome. The best part? You won't have to create an API. To be honest, when I first started working with Inertia, I was a little confused about how everything worked. If that sounds familiar, then this course is made for you. I'll guide you through everything you need to know to kickstart your journey in building single-page applications using Laravel, Inertia, and Vue.

Eloquent Relationships By Example

Eloquent is Laravel's ORM (Object Relational Mapper). In simple terms, it's how your models work with the database. The good news? There's a bunch of powerful relationship types available. Our task is to learn when and where to use each one. In this course, we'll cover each basic relationship type, how to access related models, and then insert, sync, update and delete related data. Oh, and we'll build a practical example for each relationship type, to really make it stick.

PHP Enums

Enums represent a typed set of possible values in PHP. For example, if you're storing a Book that can have a status of __want to read__, __reading__ or __read__, an Enum will hold these values in one place that you can reference anywhere. Prior to PHP 8.1 (when Enums were added), you'd have to work with a simple class with constants. While that works fine, it doesn't provide much power under the hood. In this course, we'll look at the power of Enums and how they can drastically simplify your code.

Laravel Model Pruning

Database tables filling up? Let's learn how to quickly and automatically remove records with Laravel's native Pruning functionality. Before Laravel 8.50.0, we'd have to take care of this manually. Now, it's as simple as adding a trait, a query builder, and running an Artisan command. We'll also dive into what's happening behind the scenes to understand how this works.

Flexible Flash Notifications with Inertia

Flash notifications exist in almost every application. With Inertia, flashing notifications requires a bit more thought, and we're going to take this further and end up with a global notification plugin that just... works. By the end of the course, you'll have the ability to flash any type of notification, anywhere in your application, without repeating any code.
