Atlanta Laravel Development

When developing a custom application, there are several basic approaches.  Some applications can use existing frameworks specific to their industry and extend it to reach their goals.  But if you are looking for a powerful flexible application with scalability, then Laravel might be right choice for you.

Custom Applications

Laravel is a developer’s dream.  Yes, it’s true that you could build out a custom application with a lot of features already built into it.  For example, WordPress can be great for small scale applications.  But at some point, you spend more hours trying to hack your way around the WordPress core than just developing your own system in Laravel.  With this kind of PHP framework you really can mold it to fit exactly what you want for your website in both the front-end and back-end.

Save Time & Money

PHP frameworks give you the bare essentials and structure to write good solid code.  But because of the file structure and code modularity you’re not only getting a safe, secure system, but also one that can be added to over time.  Using “procedural code” is generally not very smart and will cause major problems if you ever decide to sway from the original application outline.  With Laravel, you’re using MVC (Model View Controller) which separates the code into meaningful chunks that can be added to without breaking the functionality of your website.

Application Scaling

Because you’re building out a custom application with Laravel, you can really keep the system lightweight and not end up with a bloated, slow application.  Besides great user interface, it’s also known for being extremely scalable.  Meaning that when you do grow your user base into something extraordinary, your Laravel application will be able to accommodate and expand with your business.

Building from scratch is rarely ever a good idea.  There are exceptions, but they are extremely few.  Most of the largest applications you see built around the internet are based off PHP frameworks and many of the new ones have been developed in Laravel.  The main reasons not to build an application from scratch are listed below.

  • You spend many hours on items that are already included in most frameworks and it drives your development cost through the roof.
  • The door is opened to poor programming practices since those that condone this method might not be the most skilled programmers.  Without a set of standards, your application can become flimsy, develop bugs easily, and be vulnerable to hackers.
  • Because you haven’t use a framework, you can’t have another programmer just pick up where the original left off.  You’re tied to this programmer and if they leave you’re SOL.
