As a 10-year experienced web developer, I can confidently say that Laravel is set to be the game changer for web development in 2023.

For those who may not be familiar, Laravel is a PHP framework that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It is known for its elegant syntax, easy-to-use tools, and robust features that make it a favorite among web developers.

One of the key features that sets Laravel apart is its built-in support for the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture.

This architecture pattern makes it easy to separate the application logic from the presentation layer, which in turn makes it easier to maintain and scale the application.

Another great feature of Laravel is its built-in support for routing. Routing is the process of connecting URLs to specific controllers and actions in an application. Laravel makes this process incredibly easy by providing a simple and intuitive routing system.

For example, consider a basic routing example in Laravel for a “Contact Us” page:

Route::get('/contact-us', 'ContactUsController@index');

This single line of code maps the URL “/contact-us” to the “index” method of the “ContactUsController” class.

Laravel also provides a powerful query builder and ORM (object-relational mapping) system, which makes it easy to interact with databases.

This is another thing that makes Laravel different from other frameworks. It means that developers don't have to write complicated SQL queries and can instead focus on the logic of the application.

Take a simple query to get all the users from the users table as an example:
