@Myungki the link shared to the windows laravel works, and in the Readme file all is there. This should be working for you, it is working for me! I complement with the basic instructions in laravel official documentation and it's all good? Php and composer instructions are even included :-)
@dannys Well, I don't know yet what we can do with the TDD forum before learning and then reusing ;
About the question ' which projects should be built with Frameworks ' , if you look at the ' services ' link, notice how most of them have pretty much the same basic 'frames / structural ' needs ? Authentification, admin & users & permissions, CRUD and categories wether it's courriers, garbage, cattle management, etc..
Looking at raw PHP versus using Laravel, I'm glad to learn raw SQL, authentification and all that but I already can see how repeatedly coding all those aspects projects after projects would become somewhat repetitive and then my own efficiency would be limited by that.
In the construction business this would be analogous to cutting, seasoning & planning each wood beam vs buying some already up to specs from the shop and then using them to build what you are actually looking forward to build, with the most efficiency and economy of time.
So yeah, I feel like * almost all * projects should be built with framework if you don't like to constently reinvent the wheel ? At our levels, why would you not want to use a framework like Laravel, while yes understanding the fondational PHP ? :-)
@travoltron Hello, by the way if you are searching for a wiki solution I've found and transitioned a team at one of my other works to https://shelf.io , there should be pretty much everything you would wish for and a free account for small teams, good organizational ability, possibility of public ressources with the private ones, good design and ongoing development. I've been researching for a while before finding them and now my team loves them :-) Hope this helps :-)
Hello, I have a similar experience with being a beginner in actual programming so a couple of months ago I made a pause in Laracasts to get some basic knowledge in; I started by those books that I read back to back :
PHP Pandas was nice but somewhat the same generic basic book of ' what's a function, what's an array', there's tons of ressources along these lines.
Currently I'm working through a book on PHP 7 & Web applied development without a framework, you might like it :
And that course on Udemy is about 10 projects that are coded live in front of you, there are few explications of the 'why' but by then I'm starting to have an idea of what he's talking about and why :
I also have a bunch of more advanced / specialized books that I keep for later :-)
I feel that a mix of ressources covering general overview, applied aspects , specific coding techniques and wider Laravel ecosystem & environment is creating a synergy of understanding for me.
I hope this helps you situate Laracasts in this whole environment and 'layers' :-) after those months of absorbing as much as I can of these other ressources everything here makes much more sense to me :-)
Yes, I would love something like a recommended ' Full Laravel Bootcamp from beginner to hired' and as it doesn't seem to be existing just yet, we have to make our own :-)
Hello; I found this thread looking into the ' most popular of all time ' section; as a literal complete newbie in PHP & Laravel I'm grateful for all the links to ressources, books, tutorials and advices you pointed out. I'll watch those introduction series and explore the books and come back to you.
From the external viewpoint I also appreciate how collectively you were able to be clear & also keep your cool in some tense exchanges, it inspire confidence in this community :-)
