To start off the new year the Laravel News site has posted a list of 80 tutorials, packages and resources they've shared with the community over the past year.
As 2016 is coming to a close it’s a great time to look back on the year and see just how much progress has been made. Laravel had a busy year with 5.3 being released, Laracon, updates to all the components, and now gearing up for the Laravel 5.4 release.
To look back on the year I’ve put together a list of some of the hits of 2016 and arranged them by month so you can get a quick overview of all the highlights.
There's lots of good content posted here and it's interesting to see all of the developments in not only the Laravel community but also the wider PHP community (including the fifth birthday of Laravel in June). Check out the full post for the complete list and links to each post.
