I never thought of deep diving into Laravel this far. The main reason that pushed me to learn it was "My college project".
It was my first time using Laravel. But I've been exploring CodeIgniter for two semester before. Hence I thought it was not that scary to learn.
Refers to what I've mentioned in the title. The Blade Templating Engine gives me so many things to expand as much as the benefit it has. For the Eloquent ORM, I surprised a lot cause it can hugely reduce my codes. Also gives me more insights about the MVC method.
I can say that Laravel keeps me learn more. And code more often.
