If you use another operating system, you can skip this step. However, that can also be a great tool
Homestead is a vagrant box that will allow us to quickly build a complete virtual machine designed for Laravel projects primarily. Homestead is a project of the organization Laravel and is regularly updated with great contributions from the community and the maintainers
During this class, you will know the main commands needed to manage your virtual machine with Vagrant. Commands for creating, destroying, starting and shutting down, along with connecting through SSH to it. It is recommended to use Git Shell, especially on Windows, for the SSH connection.
SublimeCodeIntel is a standalone tool for Sublime Text that facilitates browsing through the definition of different classes, methods, and variables of the project, as well as the internal code of Laravel or other packages.
With PHPCompanion, you get access to multiple functionalities among which, the possibility of automatically resolving the location of the definitions that have the sentences "use" of your project. Avoiding having to access them manually or have to memorize them.
Let's go one by one with the different models/entities/resources that will conform the RESTful API, its attributes names, characteristics, and relationships between them.
End-Points are all possible routes or URLs that the API will provide to bring different options, resources, and utilities. During this class you will see a complete list of all of these, how every end-point work, their names, actions, methods/verbs and some more details.
PHP Artisan is one of the attractions of Laravel. It allows generating code, along with direct interaction with the application from simple console commands. During this class, you will see how to access the list of PHP Artisan commands, how to get specific help for any command and more.
Environment variables are values that should usually change between one environment and another, for example, access to the database is surely different on your local computer than on your production server. In this class, you will see How these variables work, where they are located and how they are used from the different Laravel configuration files.
During this class, you will see how to generate the initial structure of the models of the system, along with their migrations through the use of PHP artisan commands. Remember that the order of the migrations is crucial, so you must pay attention to the order in which each model is created with its respective migrations.
As in the previous class, it is also possible to create the initial structure of the controllers using PHP artisan commands. During this class, you will see the creation of resource controllers that allows implementing the CRUD operations for every resource.
As with resource drivers, resource type paths also exist. As expected, these routes make it easy to link a given URL and resource with a particular action of a controller. You will see how some paths only use a small set of methods, but not all of them.

What is a RESTful API?
A Web API is like a web service that works entirely with HTTP. A RESTful API must follow the REST (REpresentational State Transfer) practices, allowing to orientate the design to the resources, provide standard responses based on the different HTTP status codes, and the corresponding according to Hypermedia Links in responses (HATEOAS).
Because Laravel is a framework made by programmers for programmers, expressive, simple, intuitive, and powerful. Laravel provides useful features for web projects including RESTful APIs.
Each new Laravel version includes many changes that make this framework even better, simple, programmer-friendly, and at the same time much more powerful. In fact, the latest versions of Laravel included a lot of new features to help to develop RESTful APIs in the right way.
During this course, you will master the complete structure of Laravel, along with the new features included in the latest version of Laravel to develop an actual RESTful API.
