Of course if you are new to Laravel, you might be wondering about questions like these:
- Who uses Laravel in the real world? Are any big names on the list?
- Is there any data that shows rise of Laravel comparing to other frameworks?
- Is Laravel worth the investment? Will it be worth to switch to it?
- How secure is Laravel?
- Will Laravel still be useful a year, two or three from now?
I think these are pretty good questions to ask however I feel Maks missed the biggest question, and that is “How many learning resources are available?”.
I also wrote a post back in January with my thoughts on why laravel is succeeding and although I put more focus on the community and the ease of use I think these two posts together really show that it isn’t one thing making it successful. Instead it’s the vision, the community, and a an enjoyment of using the framework.
