Start building PHP applications with Laravel, the PHP framework for designers.
- [Voiceover] Hey, it's Joe Lowery. Welcome to Up and Running with Laravel. Laravel has been recognized as one of the fastest growing PHP frameworks and you'll soon see why as you progress through the course. We'll start with a general overview of Laravel and we'll also explore Composer, the PHP dependencies manager underlying Laravel. I'll show you how to install both to get you going. Next, we'll cover Laravel's powerful routing syntax and it's flexible HTML views. Database handling is a must and Laravel keeps it straightforward yet robust with Ruby on Rails-like migrations.
We'll then examine another elegant Laravel implementation blade for expressive templating. Once you have these basics under your belt, you're ready to build your first Laravel app. We'll tackle one that authenticates users efficiently, thanks to the built-in protocols and methods. Finally, we'll take a look at how Laravel handles the essential but onerous task of testing. Ready to get up and running with Laravel? Let's go for it.
