Creating & Accessing Your Application’s Database

Build Your First Laravel App

This is Lesson 3 of Build Your First Laravel App, my FREE 5 lesson video course that has helped over 10,000 developers learn to build their first Laravel web application, step by step.

In the previous lesson, you created your initial Laravel application and learned about routes and views and how they’re used to render the Laravel Welcome page.

This time you’ll be learning all about data. You’re going to create a database to store your movie information and learn how to attach it to your Laravel app.

NOTE: The Laravel routes file is now located at [YOUR_PROJECT]/routes/web.php, as opposed to [YOUR_PROJECT]/app/Http/routes.php, it’s location in previous versions of Laravel, as seen in this video. Make sure you add your code to the file in the new location!
