I signed up yesterday and it's been a PAIN to get started. I started by watching the Laravel 5.4 From Scratch series. The instructor is nice, but he doesn't explain his setup. He has a directory called "code" I believe, but I didn't... anyhow.
I was able to run "laravel new blog" and it created everything. Then I installed mysql using brew and now "laravel" returns: -bash: laravel: command not found
This is all very very confusing (to me).
Did you know that, in addition to the forum, Laracasts includes well over 1000 lessons on modern web development? All for the price of one lunch out per month.
