This month we’re invited back to Inventis (@inventis) – the company behind Pukkelpop’s online tech and ticketing (among many other clients of course!), and a long time partner with out meetup. 

The topic of the evening will be brought by Freek Van der Herten (@freekmurze) – a veteran PHPer with an amazing portfolio of open-source contributions, founder of Spatie, and co-organizer of the PHP Antwerp meetup.

=TALK = Creating a dashboard with Laravel, Vue and Pusher

On the wall mounted TV in our office a dashboard is displayed. At a glance we can see what the current tasks for each member of our team are, which important events are coming up, which music is playing, if it will rain in the next 30 minutes, … and much more.

In this talk I’ll explain how we leveraged both Laravel and Vue to build the dashboard. After demonstrating the dashboard itself we’ll take a deep dive in the code. We’ll take a look at the entire flow: the grid system, broadcast events, the Pusher service, some cool Vue mixins and much more. After this talk you’ll be able to setup a dashboard using our code available at https://github.com/spatie/dashboard.spatie.be
