Continuing the tutorial about Laravel, I will show you how to start a new project. We will install the framework, dependencies, and define the necessary settings. This application is available on Github at github.com/oscardias/desenvolvendo_com_laravel, and with every new article I will create a new tag in the repository to facilitate downloading. The code variables and comments are in portuguese.
Git is a free version control system to manage the source code of your projects. As well as other similar systems, Git allows you to keep track of changes made in your application, allows you to separate the implementation of new features and bug fixes of your production version, in addition to assisting in your project’s management. In this post I will explain how to install and how to use the main functions of Git. As a complement I’m going to talk a little bit about GitHub, too.
