Both PHP and I– as a developer– have come a very long way since a year ago. Earlier this year, I began to hear about a new framework making waves:
But what is Laravel? Why should anyone care? After all, frameworks come and go. Before, we were hearing all about CodeIgniter and CakePHP. And before that, Zend Framework was very popular amongst the PHP core community. What good would it do me to switch everything over to Laravel?
In short: Nothing
There is absolutely NO good reason in taking an existing architecture that works – and works well – and switching it over to the buzzword of the year. If you’re doing this, then you’ve completely missed the point of a framework.
