Laravel Spark Site Launched (and Screencast Posted)
Apr 15, 2016 @ 10:12:25

A highly anticipated project in the Laravel community - Laravel Spark - has officially launched its site providing more information about the product and its upcoming release. Laravel News gives its own brief summary of Spark in a new post:

Spark is a complete scaffolding for building a SaaS app including authentication, password reset, billing plans, payment method updates, invoices, coupons, user impersonation, and more with support for Stripe and Braintree.

The official release date is April 19th, next Tuesday, and although no pricing is on the site the rumor is it’ll be less than $100. This will save you many hours from building it all yourself.

For those interested in finding out a bit more in-depth about the product, check out this recently released screencast over on the Laracasts site where Taylor Otwell shows the basic setup and features of the platform.

Laracasts Snippet:
Episode 14 - Russian-Doll Caching in Laravel
Feb 15, 2016 @ 10:22:05

The Laracasts Snippet podcast has posted their latest episode with a brief look at Russian-doll caching in Laravel.

One of the things I've been tinkering with these last few days is a mechanism for performing Russian-Doll caching in Laravel. In addition to determining if I can even make it work, I've been pondering whether this truly has a place in your future projects, or if there simply isn't enough value to warrant its usage. Who knows - let's talk about it.

The podcast also links to this series of posts on the Laracasts site on the subject. If you'd like to listen to this podcast, though, you can use either the in-page audio player or you can download the mp3 of the show. If you enjoy it, be sure to subscribe to their feed too.

There's two videos posted so far helping you build a basic application to work inside of and looking behind the scenes of "find" to see what happens when it's executed. Only the first video in the series is free, but it gives you an idea of what will be covered and the style of the videos.
