In this course we'll build a neat little social network and cover the basics of developing with Laravel.

To start developing, you need a fitting development environment. You may set one up using MAMP (https://www.mamp.info/), just follow the instructions on the page. Alternatively give a cloud-based IDE and workspace like Cloud9 (c9.io) a try.
