    Project mention: Struggling in learng Laravel🥺 | | 2023-02-03

    Understand the MVC pattern. Laravel is MVC so it helps kung alam mo kung ano yung purpose nung Model, View, Controller at san ang implementation nya sa Laravel. Example, Eloquent ORM, Blade templates, using the CLI/artisan to generate things, making migrations, etc. When I was learning Laravel dati, laging nakabukas yung docs. It's extremely helpful. If may mga questions ka, don't hesitate to ask here. Laravel is popular so may mga devs naman siguro dito na makakasagot sa queries mo. Good luck!

    Beside Symfony there is Laravel Framework , I will not go into deep difference between this frameworks as it really is just taste of what your team likes more (active record vs datamapper, facade/helpers vs dependency injection, blade vs twig, ...), as already mention above this kind of CMS make sense if Website is just one part of your application and you have to build more then just a simple digital business card / website.
