In my bid to create my first CRUD app, dev.to/kingsconsult/laravel-8-crud... , I will list few things I noticed about the

  1. Laravel 8 creates a Model folder to store models, which I manually do previously
  2. Laravel 8 automatically copy .env from .env.example
  3. Laravel 8 generates APP_KEY after copying the .env
  4. There is a change on how to write route in web route file, the path must be included at the top. check my article on how to create a CRUD app, then see the changes
