Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Laravel advanced concepts and next steps, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications (2015).
- So far, we've looked at how to do the basics in Laravel.…Now, let's talk about what else you can do,…and where to go to learn more.…One thing to look into is the Laravel Data Layer.…Laravel has a special DB object you can use…if you wanna just query the database directly.…If you wanna use the Eloquent ORM, it's fairly easy to use.…You simply inherit from the Eloquent class, set the table,…and basically your ORM Layer is set up.…Additionally, there's a special Schema class…that allows you to script your database creation.…
This can be great for doing migrations…from one environment to the next.…Artisan even supports the ability to do seeding,…so that way you can use Artisan…to essentially do command line interactions…to create your database,…and seed it with dummy data for testing.…Laravel has also added the Redis class,…if you wanna use the Redis database.…Some other concepts to look into…that can help your development:…Laravel has, what they call, middleware.…Middleware essentially allows you to insert functionality…

Q: When setting up Composer on my Windows machine, I'm asked to specify where php.exe is located. Where can I find it?
Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see https://mattstauffer.co/
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
