PHP Development with Laravel

For many people, PHP is dead. PHP lives. Newer frameworks and tools are breathing some new life into PHP, allowing developers to develop more rapidly, and avoid tedious tasks. Laravel is an MVC framework that can be used with command-line tools to quickly prototype and develop front-ends and/or back-ends (for backbone.js, perhaps). Laravel abstracts many of the more tedious tasks like database queries and covers things like data sanitation, validation and relationships, so you can think about other things. We’ll talk about features of Laravel 3, as well as some best practices. We’ll also look at some of the exciting things integrated in the upcoming Laravel 4.

    Nice presentation Richard. It was great to see how parts of Laravel compare to ASP.NET MVC.

    Great job Richard. I think you did well in proving that Laravel makes PHP much more programmer friendly.

    I'd like to bring my advanced programming class as a field trip. 8 max (probably 6). OK?
