Building an API with Slim 3

by Rob Allen ( @akrabat )

For our first meetup we have invited Rob Allen (@akrabat).


Slim 3 builds on the PSR-7 HTTP message interfaces and provides useful features such as routing, and a DI container. It's very lightweight and so is an ideal platform for building microservice APIs. 

In this talk, we'll look at how to use Slim 3 as the basis for your API and build a fully featured API by leveraging Slim's Middleware system. We'll cover the key concepts around HTTP request-response resource APIs including handling accepting and generating the correct content type for returned data, authentication and also returning errors appropriately. 

By the end of this session you will be well placed to write your own APIs with Slim 3.
