Laravel: Code Bright
I been using Laravel since version 3, I bought the Laravel: Code Happy when I start one of my bigger Laravel project , it help me to learn more about Laravel,which explain why when Laravel 4 release , I bought Laravel: Code Bright immediately.
If you compare to some of the e-book , Laravel: Code Bright might seem a little bit more expensive, but I think is really worth it , the book are still on going, you receive a new chapter every few week , but so far I learn some of the best practice and useful tips from it , you might not even found it from the documentation, unless you been crawling on the source code. For example :
- You can use toSql function in order to check SQL query.
- There is chain method where allow you to search for some record and update it in one line.
- You can assign a collection to a variable then get the first record from it.
If you are new to the Laravel , I m highly recommend this book to you , if might be a bit weird since the book have some geek humor which might not really impress everyone but I think you can tell the author is trying hard to make a the book more interesting by using all those example.
This is part of 22 something , Week 32 read something
