Joost Van Veen is teaching a new course at Tuts+ on getting started with Laravel:
It is no exaggeration to say that Laravel has taken the PHP community by storm. If you’re ready to start learning Laravel, this course will cover all the basics to get you ready to go. Topics covered include routing, controllers, models, views, the blade templating engine, eloquent, authentication, resources, validation and then some. To complete this course, you’ll build a hands-on project that’ll put all the skills you’ve learned into practice.
