Taylor Otwell on Laravel

Posted by & filed under PHP.

I promised myself never to release Laravel until I had great documentation, and I never release a new version until the documentation is totally up to date. Any PHP programmer can pick up Laravel and start using it in a matter of minutes. The expressiveness of the code itself and the great documentation truly make coding enjoyable. http://taylorotwell.tumblr.com/post/21038245018/why-laravel

A good friend of mine, Jordan Bracco recently forced me to rediscover Ruby on Rails. He told me that the new version, 1.9 is “5000x faster”, so I thought, well, why not! The last version of Ruby I tried was either version 1.7 or 1.8, and it was not really something that I would say… Read more »
