Good and Updated Laravel and CodeIgniter learning resources?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! I know basic PHP and would like to learn the Laravel framework. I thought of learning CodeIgniter also. Can you suggest good video tutorials, books, and written tutorials learn them? I would also like to know which of these two I should learn first because I have no experience using a framework for a server-side scripting language. I also saw that some YouTube tutorials are kind of outdated. Are those still good resources? Thanks!

I'd choose one and roll with it.  Don't split between the two unless you have a good reason.  The syntax and templating is not exactly the same and they have their own flavors.  You'll become an expert in one a lot quicker.  I'd suggest Laravel myself.  That's the recommended and preferred framework we use in PHP for all Prodjex work.  

They have a few outstanding forums:

Also Laracasts have video tutorials on almost anything you could think of

Thanks for all the resources, Mr. Nathan!

Will do! I'll focus on Laravel now. I noticed that Laracasts have both free and paid content. Will the free stuff suffice for building basic systems? Or are they just offering the free content to gain some leads and the tutorials that have value are all in the paid section? Thanks again, admin! :)

Yes the free stuff should be fine.  If you run into issues, Google will locate any answers.  If you need more guidance just post here :) 

Thanks a lot, Nathan! I'll go through the free content and try to build a simple system for my family's business. I'll bump this post if I encounter a problem that Google can't help me with. :)
