The Laravel Survival Guide

About the Book

Why The Book? Well, it's not really a book... It's more of a guide (hence the title). A guide to save yourself and others from becoming a zombie developer!

What exactly is a zombie developer? Well, a zombie developer is a developer like you or I, yet they mindlessly hack on PHP apps and do the same thing over and over. These repetitive tasks are incredibly time consuming, and make the developer brain dead. When this happens it gives them a thirst for blood and an urge to kill.

So, instead of letting this happen the developer could have used the amazing Laravel framework for rapid application development. This will help them keep their sanity and it will make coding enjoyable again. Oh, yeah... And it'll save lives.

By learning the basics of Laravel you can save yourself, and possibly others, from becoming a deteriorating zombie developer.

Don't let that inner zombie revive, be sure to keep in hand this Laravel survival guide.
