Highly recommend for everyone who working with Laravel framework.

Not just a good book for anyone who's new to Laravel. This book also covers everything you need to take advanced steps with the framework. It gives you a full basic detail about Laravel framework, cover from just "get it done" to do it right with Test sessions in every chapter.

And this book is also a very good reference source for you when you need to understand some part of Laravel that official document doesn't cover enough detail.

Excellent resource on Laravel, and I cannot wait for the new version so I can see what has changed in the versions since this book was written.

It made several concepts click into place for me for programming in general, so I highly recommend this book to anyone.

First of all: It's a good book but it didn't met my expectation. My expectation was a guided tour to set up a new application by starting simple and adding more features to it through the chapters. Something similar to "Agile Web Development with Rails".
The book seems to cover the interesting parts but they are mostly not related to each other. It's probably a good reference if you want to look something specific up but doesn't really tell a story.

Excellent book, but make sure you know PHP, Object Oriented principles and MVC before reading this book !!

باید یه بار دیگه بخونمش و این بار همراه با تمرین کردن سعی کنم روش و جای استفاده از مفاهیمی که یاد گرفتم رو فرابگیرم و جزئی از مهارت‌هام بشه.
کتاب خوبیه؛ اگه جاییش رو توی بار اول خوندن متوجه نشدید رد بشید و زیاد به خودتون سخت نگیرید چون وقتی دوباره مجبور می‌شید که به عقب برگردید و یه جاهایی ازش رو مرور کنید، کاملا متوجه می‌شید ؛)

كتاب جميل ومفيد.. ولكنن يعيبه أنه قديم نوعًا ما.. حيث تغيّر إطار العمل لارافل كثيرًا وصرنا في الإصدار التاسع وقت كتابة هذه المراجعة في حين كان الشرح في الكتاب على الإصدار الخامس وما بعده قليلا..

أنصح به من لديه خبرة يسيرة في لارافل وليس للمبتدئ تماما

Great beginners resource for people new to the framework and even for the mid/high level dev there are many little things you can pick up (like I did!). Did feel like reading documentation though and really wanted to see how to actually build an app instead of lots of disjointed examples.
