Laravel: Up and Running is targeted at capable developers who are looking to learn Laravel for the first time. It's clear, concise, and will get you up and running creating powerful and flexible apps in Laravel in no time.
O'Reilly (my publisher) has a series of books called the "Animal books," each of which has a drawing of an animal on the front—and this book is in that series. My animal is a Gemsbok, a type of antelope.
Unofficial release dates
We now have unofficial release dates! The Ebook should release end of October and the print book should release early November.
Print and Ebook pre-orders are now available, and the Ebook preorder gets you early access to the entire book, unedited and straight from my text editor.
