About This Episode

Published on Mar 17th, 2021

We don't learn tools for the sake of learning tools. Instead, we learn tools because they help us accomplish something, or solve a problem that we currently have. As an example, you didn't learn how to use a hammer because you wanted to learn how to use a hammer. No, you learned it because it helped you hang a picture on the wall. The same is true for programming languages and frameworks, like Laravel. With that in mind, our goal is one of the most common goals on the internet: build a functional blog to promote our band, or business, or ideas.

Extra Credit: Consider watching the optional HTML and CSS Workflow prerequisite series that was mentioned in this video.
