Welcome to Securing Laravel!

Hey there,

I’m Stephen Rees-Carter, the creator of Securing Laravel! It’s awesome to meet you and welcome to you to the community. It’s great to see so many folks like yourself interested in learning about security and keeping their apps secure.

In case you’re confused about the name, this mailing list used to be called Laravel Security In Depth. We switched to Securing Laravel when we shifted to securinglaravel.com.

Each month we dive into Laravel Security concepts through code examples, recent updates, interactive challenges, and hacking techniques, covering the essential topics you need to know to keep your apps secure. In the weeks between, I send out quick security tips covering a wide range of security-related topics that are relevant to Laravel developers.

Securing Laravel is suitable for Laravel developers of all skill levels. Every concept we cover is fully explained, so security newbies can learn the concepts, but we also dive deep for those looking to learn even more.

Alongside our emails, we have interactive hacking challenges, where you can apply the concepts you’ve learnt to practical applications.

So what are you waiting for? Come join us and learn more about Laravel security!

Becoming a paid subscriber of Securing Laravel helps support the mailing list directly by funding my time researching and writing the weekly emails, and teaching you more about keeping your apps secure.
