Welcome to "API Development with Laravel", your comprehensive guide to creating powerful and scalable web APIs using one of the most popular PHP frameworks. This book is designed to take you on a journey from the very basics of API development to mastering advanced features and best practices in Laravel.

We start with the fundamentals, introducing you to API development concepts and why Laravel is the go-to framework for many developers. From setting up your development environment to understanding Laravel's MVC architecture, we lay down the groundwork for a solid understanding of the basics.

We cover essential topics such as authentication and authorization, advanced Eloquent and query building, API resources and serialization, testing, security best practices, documentation, versioning, and much more. By the end of this book, you will have the knowledge and confidence to build and deploy APIs.
