About the Book

In this book will illustrate how to use Parse.com as your own database backend, by creating a simple blog with posts and comments ..

* am going to use Laravel 4 as the framework for writing this lovely web app, which will be a small blog for personal use, so you need to know laravel and how to write code in php ..

* You need also to have an account on Parse.com.

* You will need to have LAMP installed on your workstation or to have your own simple vps .. This book is not intended to teach you Laravel, instead it will help you to learn how to use Parse.com in your next web project ..

Christopher Pitt : I found the formatting sufficient, the language easy to follow and the level of detail exactly right to not bore me to death. If you’re keen to learn how to use Parse, and you know a tiny bit of Laravel, this is definitely a good read.  Read the full review

Laravel News : No. This book is not an exhaustive reference of Laravel functionality, but then it doesn’t aim to be. It’s purpose is to demonstrate how to use Parse data storage in a concrete application, and that it does well. Read the full review
