Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Maximilian Schwarzmueller, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Laravel -- Models and Data. I'm a freelance web developer and online instructor with many years of experience working with PHP and Laravel. Working with models and data are key tasks of any modern web application, but writing complex queries, especially when using related models and tables, can quickly become a very difficult task. In this course, we're going to see that Laravel makes that actually very easy. Some of the major topics that we will cover include model and database setup and configuration, all in P or PHP, no SQL knowledge is required, querying the database for both inserting and fetching data without writing any line of SQL code, and setting up and using one-to-many and many-to-many relations between models. By the end of this course, you'll be able to integrate database access and models into all your Laravel projects, and, therefore, create truly dynamic applications. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with object-oriented PHP programming, and the basics of Laravel. Taking my Laravel Basics course here on Pluralsight may be a good idea. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into PHP and Laravel with courses on advanced Laravel concepts, for example, building a RESTful service with Laravel. I hope you join you me on this journey to learn database access and working with models and data in Laravel apps with the Getting Started with Laravel - Models and Data course at Pluralsight.
