Laravel Collections Unraveled

About the Book

In "Laravel Collections Unraveled" we are going to see just what is so amazing about this class by digging down under the hood to understand the full range of functions availalble, and create practical examples of each of them that we can use right away. In the process, we're going to perhaps improve our basic PHP skills a bit by getting more familiar with ArrayObjects, CachingIterators, IteratorAggregates and some other handy tools.
