Getting Started with Laravel (PHP Framework) - The Basics

by Max Schwarzmueller

Frameworks like Laravel support you when building web applications that scale. This course teaches the basics about Laravel, how it works, how to use views, controllers and models, and how to connect it all.

What you'll learn

When building anything but very simple web applications, vanilla PHP will quickly be the limiting factor. Instead of re-inventing the wheel over and over again, frameworks like Laravel help you with handling basic yet important tasks like sessions, authentication, or input validation. This course, Getting Started with Laravel (PHP Framework) - The Basics, teaches you how Laravel works and how to use it. You will start with understanding the theory behind Laravel. Then, you'll learn how to create and render views, as well as handling requests and inputs. Finally, you will connect your business logic to the page showing up in the browser using a Model-View-Controller (MVC) approach. After finishing this course, you'll be able to go back to the application you were stuck on and rebuild it in less time whilst only focusing on your core business logic.
