What can anyone tell me about Laravel?
I'm thinking about what's next for me on my Treehouse Journey as I'm almost finished the Treehouse Wordpress Development Track. Obviously I need to keep my skills fresh on that but I was looking at good PHP courses in the library.
I know that the PHP offerings are being updated at the moment under Alena's excellent (I'm sure :) ) teaching and I wondered about Laravel and possibly Drupal?
Is it worth me taking the time to get to know this? Will it help me for example make better websites? :)
The course on Tree house is a bit old Jonathan , learning Laravel 4 is not a good idea , since some of the changes that have been introduced in the newer version of Laravel are treated differently in Laravel 4 for instance. Controllers, Middleware, and Requests (a new type of class in Laravel 5.0) are now grouped under the app/Http directory which are treated differently in 4 . I would encourage you to gain some knowledge about php frameworks which use MVC architecture just to know how they work and then jump into laravel later .
