If you are a developer or seeking to learn web development, we would like to introduce you to one of the easiest way to develop great web applications in a very easy way. Laravel is a web application framework that is free and open source. Web application frameworks are programs that help in developing web sites and web applications. Laravel was chosen as the most popular PHP framework according to a survey in 2013.
Laravel works according to the MVC pattern which stands for (Model – View – Controller). The MVC is a software architectural pattern that is based on dividing any application to three major parts; the first part is the model which manages the data that is inserted to the application, the logic of the application and the rules of the application. The second part is the view and this part views the outputs of the application to the user. The third part is the controller and this part is the one that receives the inputs of the application and transforms them into templates to be viewed or orders to the Model.
