Welcome back to Laravel. Last year I wrote a book about the Laravel PHP framework. It started as a collection of tutorials on my blog, and eventually became a full book. I definitely didn’t expect it to be as popular as it was. Code Happy has sold almost 3000 copies, and is considered to be one of the most valuable resources for learning the Laravel framework.
In PHP version 5.3 a new feature known as namespacing was added to the language. Many modern languages already had this feature for some time, but PHP was a little late to the scene. None the less, every new feature has a purpose, let’s find out why PHP namespaces can benefit our application.
Please note that this article acts as an introduction to Composer to be included with my upcoming title 'Code Bright' for Laravel. However, it could just as easily represent a guide to composer for newcomers without the intention of using the Laravel framework. Enjoy!
Welcome to one of the Primer topics within Code Bright.
