Laravel, the best PHP framework, I have worked in Laravel for most of my projects. Working with different versions and working on previous Laravel sites gives a lot of insight and solutions to how to develop the project at hand.
Similar to Laravel, Codeigniter is used extensively. I have built multiple apps in Codeigniter and have worked on previously Codeigniter built sites.
Through a lot of projects and adding features to previously built apps, i get a lot of insight and new ideas from all across the world. New ways of making things smarter and better.
The proper software process when building any kind of application is essential to build a Quality applicaiton, be it small application consisting of 10 pages or a large application with 100+ pages.
The database is the heart of most applications and it should always be designed in an efficient way. Anyone can design a database but handling it properly considering present and future is not always trivial. Here i follow a standard database development process which makes it more efficient and flexible.
