Yesterday was the beginning of a new chapter in my career. I was given a warm welcome by the team I'll be working with on my first job. It's a full-stack role where the team uses React/Redux on the front-end and Laravel on the backend.
First, so far, I have always started all my projects on my own because I was using them for practice. Now all the coding tutorials and practice turned into a job and words cannot express how happy I am. Here's the challenge, There's an existing codebase I have to jump on, understand and contribute. I have been given 1 week to familiarize myself with everything and I'll be assigned a task on Monday, next week.
Second, I have only gone through tutorials and built minimal APIs with NodeJS and express but the team uses Laravel. I haven't worked with Laravel before now, so any advice, resources on building APIs with Laravel framework will be appreciated. They also use a TDD approach so I'll appreciate any advice and resource that can get me started on TDD with Laravel API.
