We're proud to announce the release of our first book. Laravel Starter is a "getting started" guide to Laravel 3.
I've been intending to write a book for some time. Packt Publishing contacted me and it seemed like a good time to get started. Being a Laravel team member and an active member in the Laravel community I have gained quite a bit of experience regarding the kinds of questions that developers new to Laravel have. I used this experience in determining what topics to cover as well as how thouroughly to cover each topic. I'm very happy with the results and am quite surprised at how much information I was able to pack into the book by the end of the project.
The primary chapter guides the reader step by step through creating an user administration system with authentication. It was also important to me to talk over Eloquent relationships, bundles, Laravel's authentication system, filters, and validation.
If you're new to Laravel check it out. I feel like it's a great way to get started getting into the mindset of Laravel developer.
