Ever wondered what a service-oriented website would actually look like in PHP? This session will show you! We'll start with the API, building a simple one with familiar tools. Next, we'll build a website that doesn't use a database - instead it talks to our API to fetch data. Then the tricky part: securing access between the two, allowing API access for both the website itself and for logged-in users on that site using OAuth. Whatever your aspirations as a developer, if they include building API backends for apps or sites to consume, building lightweight web frontends, or building secure and scalable systems in PHP, then this session is for you.
