In this opening chapter you’ll learn how to create and configure your Laravel project using your existing PHP development environment, a virtual machine known as Laravel Homestead, and a minimal development environment known as Valet (OSX users only). I’ll also show you how to configure your environment in order to effectively debug your Laravel applications, and how to extend Laravel’s capabilities by installing several popular third-party packages. We’ll conclude the chapter with an introduction to PHPUnit, showing you how to create and execute your first automated Laravel test!
