What is Laravel?

I’ve heard a lot about it so let me begin! What is Laravel? What can you use it for? How much PHP do you have to know to be able to use it? and just how do you use it?

Why not ask the creators?

Its a popupar PHP framework with built-in library for you to get quick start. You need to know at least intermediate level PHP in order to use it properly, without knowledge of OOP and MVC you aint likely to get very far.
