Hi Taylor, glad to see you here. How did you manage to build such a huge framework on your own? I've seen a few videos of yours where you mentioned you made early Laravel version for a personal project while you were in working full-time somewhere else(if I recall correctly). What are the problems you faced while developing Laravel regarding coding practices as Laravel has most cleanest code including well formatted comments. Any tips, resources or suggestions for newbie programmers like me who are mostly dependent on tutorials from Jeffrey Way and StackOverflow.

I definitely owe a lot of Laravel's success to the community and their passion about it. Every video tutorial or blog about Laravel helps spread the framework. Building an ORM was definitely the most challenging aspect of building Laravel. Most other aspects have seemed fairly easy in comparison.
