Creating your first Laravel app and adding authentication

Laravel is a free, open-source PHP framework designed for building web applications with an expressive and elegant syntax. Laravel has a high level of abstraction which shields the common developer from complex inner workings. Laravel saves you time and effort because it ships with a lot of features out of the box. These amazing features include:

  • Database Migrations
  • Eloquent ORM
  • Authorization and Policies
  • Scheduler
  • Queuing

Laravel did not attempt to rewrite a lot of its functionality from scratch, it makes good use of already written and well tested components from the PHP community. Laravel is one of the few frameworks that actually comes with development environments such as Homestead and Valet. The documentation is very detailed and there is a large community based around Laravel. Some of the notable communities are laracasts.com, larajobs.com, laravel-news.com, laravelpodcast.com and larachat.co.
