APIs are rapidly gaining adoption and it can be hard to figure out where to start. Several tools exist to help you prototype an API with minimal effort on your part, but what if you could use something you’re already familiar with? In this talk, we'll make use of Laravel's Lumen framework to build an API using all of the bells and whistles of a framework without all of the full stack stuff we don't need

I've used Lumen in a project to build an API. This talk made me realize I was doin' it RONG and not using all of the power that Lumen provides.

Good talk, gives ton of great info on building RESTful APIs and on using Lumen.

Amanda is a good presenter and gave a robust overview of getting APIs running with Lumen. I'd be interested to see some comparisons of setup/speed/tradeoffs on APIs in Lumen vs. Laravel added to the slides.
