Laravel is a one of the PHP framework that will drastically improve your productivity. It has been around for quite some time. The first version was released in June of 2011. However, the founder, Taylor Otwell, and his crew are actively improving it.
The latest version (6), only came out in September of 2020. It runs on PHP 7.2.0 and above. It follows the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern which allows for a much-needed separation of concerns in our web applications.
I will describe a few of the most important features present in Laravel and hopefully, I will convince you to give it a try. There’s nothing to lose (except maybe one of your evenings filled with Netflix) and so much to be gained.
