In this chapter, we have begun working with the command line. We've installed Composer and looked at how a dependency manager such as Composer aids development by utilizing prebuilt packages in our projects (of which the Laravel framework is one). We've looked at the concept of virtual machines for developing in, and taken a look and installed the official Laravel VM: Homestead.

The next chapter is where the fun begins! Now that we have a complete development environment set up and a fresh Laravel application created, we will go through the different steps involved in creating a complete Laravel application.
