Handling media in a Laravel application
Talk by Freek Van der Herten (50 minutes)

In most CMS kind of projects you're going to let a user upload all sorts of images and files. Storing those files, associating them with models, creating thumbnails for them, optimizing images, can be a lot of work. Luckily laravel-medialibrary can do all that for you. In this talk you'll see a practical demo of how to get started with the medialibrary. You'll learn how to store files, generate urls to them, how to use different image profiles and how to use external filesystems to store big assets. You'll all so see some exciting new features that will arrive in the upcoming v7 of the package.
