Laracasts and Laravel 5

Want to brush up on your Laravel? Or PHP? Jeffrey Way has your back.

Since laravel 3 I’ve been so incredibly impressed with the framework. I’ve tried many, CodeIgniter, Zend, Yii, all very impressive, but not quite as sexy as Laravel.

This community is amazing, Composer? Amazing. Documentation? Amazing. Before I discovered Laravel I was having a good play with other frameworks.  I started looking at Ruby on Rails, which I WILL return to someday, from what I saw and from what I’ve heard through Ruby dev’s, it really is amazing (especially since playing with Shopify recently). However Laravel really caught my attention, captured my imagination and has been my goto framework since.

One of the best things about it? Laracasts – Jeffrey Way’s online video tutorials (the Laravel 5 ones are currently free and 100% worth checking out) – I have a sub and I love it.

As an experienced coder it’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but as a web developer I know if I stand still for too long I’ll get left behind. Laracasts has been a totally invaluable tool in keeping up to date with the framework and keeping my knowledge fresh too.

Keep it up Jeff you absolute star!
