Best resources to learn Laravel PHP framework
There are a bunch of tutorials out there and many good websites to learn Laravel PHP framework.
The best place to start with is https://laracasts.com/, here you can learn from the best developers called Jeffery Way who was involved developing Laravel.
I subscribed monthly to this tutorials.
Of course when you need a reference then check: laravel.com official documentation, don’t forget to check in which Laravel version you are reading, currently the last version is

before buying it if you are not sure if the book is worth it, don’t forget there are different packages, maybe you can check the package that contains the book with the 4 hours video.
