Setting up Laravel 4 via Tutsplus

I’m planning on writing up a post about the Laravel framework and why I’ve chosen it for my new foray into PHP and away from Coldfusion.
In the meantime, Tutsplus and Jeffery Way have put together a nice tutorial for setting up Laravel 4, the yet-to-be-released next version of the PHP framework that’s really getting a lot of buzz lately.
I also highly recommend the Laravel Essentials course by Tutsplus, also by Jeffrey Way, as well as the tutorial series by Shawn McCool at
