Building a simple URL Shortener in PHP with Laravel
I’ve recorded a quick Youtube video for you! In this video, we walk through building a simple URL shortener (think bit.ly) in PHP with the Laravel framework.
This originally started as part of my Laravel foundations course (link coming soon) but I felt that we could quickly get through an example on Youtube, too. In the course, we dive into things and go a bit slower to really get a grasp on how everything works, but this less than 30 minute video should get you started down the right path.
