Full IoC & Unit Testing With Laravel | Taylor Otwell

Over the past few weeks, there has been some discussion about dependency injection, service location, and Laravel facades. So, I thought I would put together a quick video to demonstrate how Laravel supports both service locating facades and full-on, thorough dependency injection. In fact, not only does it support it, Laravel is one of the only full-stack frameworks that offers thorough IoC (even for controllers) out of the box. I also included basic unit tests. No facade calls in the entire application.

This is a great video and only 10 minutes long. I highly recommend watching it and possibly learn some new stuff.
