PHPMaster.com: Laravel: Is It Really Clean and Classy?

PHPMaster.com has a new tutorial in their series about the Laravel framework posted today asking if the framework is really "clean and classy" as its documentation describes.

"Laravel is a clean and classy framework for PHP web development. Freeing you from spaghetti code, Laravel helps you create wonderful applications using simple, expressive syntax. Development should be a creative experience that you enjoy, not something that is painful. Enjoy the fresh air." That's the text which can be found on the Laravel homepage and, if we'd believe it, wouldn't it be wonderful? Let's test this claim by building a simple TODO application and see how much effort we have to put into it.

The article is pretty high-level and only touches on some of the key features like migrations (to create the database) and making the controller, model and view for the basic TODO app.
