Laraboot: Laravel 5* For Beginners Now Available

I’m happy to announce the release of Laraboot: Laravel 5* For Beginners today. The base book comes in at 370 pages and covers everything you need to know to get started in Laravel. And there is more coming as I release the bonus material over the next 30 days or so.

I’ve kept the minimum price of the book low because it just launched and I want to give everyone who purchased Yii 2 For beginners a chance to get it at the lower price. Once the page count swells, I will normalize the price.

I’m also happy to announce that you can purchase both books, Laraboot: Laravel 5* For Beginners and Yii 2 for Beginners in a single Bundle named PHP Frameworks Laravel 5* & Yii 2. That’s over 1000 pages of material and working code.

I’m really committed to helping PHP programmers become familiar with these frameworks, so they can increase their earnings potential. Both frameworks are great frameworks to learn and you really can’t go wrong by learning them.

This time out, I branded the re-usable template with the name of Laraboot. Everything in Laravel seems to be branded, so I jumped on board with that. I take a lot of pride in how clean and simple the code is in Laraboot. I think you will appreciate how easy it is to learn and use.

A word of thanks to all the programmers from around the world who have supported my writing with positive comments, reviews, and referrals. Yii 2 For Beginners got 4.67 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.com. I’m hoping to do even better with the new book. It really does inspire me to work harder, knowing that the work matters and that people appreciate it, so thanks again!

  1. Hi! I wonder: why in page number 198 you create in the trait functions which use $modelRecord as argument? instead of using $this?
    I mean may be better:
    trait OwnsRecord
    {
    public function userNotOwnerOf()
    {
    return $this->user_id != Auth::id();
    }

    }
    instead of your version:
    trait OwnsRecord
    {
    public function userNotOwnerOf($modelRecord)
    {
    return $modelRecord->user_id != Auth::id();
    }

    }

    1. Feel free to modify it as you wish. Without digging back into it directly, my understanding is that $this would not have the correct scope because we need to hand in the model instance that you wish to check to see if the current user owns it.
