Lumen - The stunningly fast micro-framework by Laravel

Lumen has landed the new PHP framework from Taylor Otwell the creator of Laravel, with the aim of the framework being to create a great framework for producing lightning fast micro-services and APIs.

This post is really just to bring Lumen to the top of my list to talk about. I’m really excited by the framework, Laravel is so amazing and Lumen opens up a whole new level of possibilities.

So in future posts I’m going to talk about the comparison of Lumen with Laravel and then the comparison of Lumen with the other two major PHP micro-frameworks Silex and Slim 3.

In the mean while if your excited to learn more I’d recommend starting with reading the project site, the associated documentation, Matt Stauffer really excellent post and the Laravel News announcement.
