How to Send Emails in Go

Go (informally known as Golang) is a popular back-end language born in Google labs back in 2007.

How to Handle Email Verification in Laravel

When a new user clicks on the Sign up button of an app, he or she usually gets a confirmation email with an activation link (see examples here). This is needed to make sure that the user owns the email address entered during the sign-up. After the click on the activation link, the user is authenticated for the app.

From the user’s standpoint, the email verification process is quite simple. From the developer’s perspective, things are much trickier unless your app is built with Laravel. Those who use Laravel 5.7+ have the user email verification available out-of-the-box. For earlier releases of the framework, you can use a dedicated package to add email verification to your project. In this article, we’ll touch upon each solution you can choose.
