Hi Zeke, just an observation as I go through the code once in a while
I believe you can get rid of this line since the $link variable is not used, maybe you can clean up this code? https://github.com/alariva/booking-app/blob/master/resources/views/BookAppointment.blade.php#L3

Hey @alariva! I'm surprised you're still poking around my project, since yours seems to have taken off quite well :). Mine is kind of dead in the water atm, but I'll definitely update the code. I also got a sub to PHPStorm so I bet I'll find a lot of things to clean up in my project.

It's been a long time and I was not finding a moment to play a bit with booking-app. I have also been learning a lot about Laravel and I think I have now a little better understanding about it.

Seems like you got a good handle on it! Timegrid is looking sexier and sexier ;)

I'm back because I really love the UX simplicity you could turn to the booking process. So far I have struggled a lot to bring some of this simplicity to timgrid. There are probably some things I would suggest enhancing, but I don't feel confident enough with the roadmap of your project. Maybe I can help you out with something?
Thank you, it is actually taking a lot of hard work and lot's of mistakes! But thanks for the nice words. :) I believe booking-app has it's potential as well!

Unfortunately this is as far as I think I'll get with the project minus a few minor tweaks. Client is happy and it's in production. If I could do it differently I would use a REST api with angular to make it even more simple, but I don't plan on growing this any more unless there's a big demand for it later.

That sounds Ok!, I find it quite cool from the UX point.

Besides, if anyone came to me asking for a booking app I would probably refer them to Timegrid because of your staff management
Yours is far more robust, mine was just a niche thing for a single client. I really like all the features of your app
