Flyn San has started (and gotten pretty far along) on a new series of posts to his blog aiming to teach you about the Laravel framework by creating a simple To Do application.
Laravel may be one of the younger frameworks out there but it's making ripples in the PHP world. The following post teaches how to build a basic to-do application in Laravel 4. It covers a wide range of concepts, links to relevant learning material where possible and should make for a great introduction to the framework.
There's already four parts to the series posted:
In each part of the tutorial complete code is provided as well as links to some external resources to get a bit more information about the framework (or the feature being discussed).
