Any tutorial site like laracast

#1
I am wondering if their is any site like laracast for codeigniter 4. Information is scarce at this time and hard to coprehend if you don't come from a high programming background. Compared to CI 3, CI 4 is way more complex.

I have not yet crossed any, but the idea is great. A walk-through-guide with examples would be handy.
While I think the documentation is pretty good, I agree that it can be challenging, especially when I encounter something that is not documented or simply does not work as intended, and I find myself reverse-engineering the system folder... Smile

Hi, have you taken notes on what parts are incorrect? So it can be fixed. If you are able you can also fix them yourself. It would be much appreciated!

Don't forget to check out the CodeIgniter Playground! A lot still to be done there but the docs are very robust and it's an attempt at making a "walk-through" project.

Hm... what is supposed to happen in the Playground project when you click one of the links on the default controller?

I am getting an FatalError
Fatal error: Cannot declare class CodeIgniter\Exceptions\PageNotFoundException, because the name is already in use in ./CI4Playground/vendor/codeigniter4/codeigniter4/system/Exceptions/PageNotFoundException.php on line 3

I understand that lonnieezell whants to earn a buck or two for his work on CI4. But if people would get access to the tutorials he made in a better form factor they would be using the system more. Why not share all the basic tutorials so people get started and make the indepth one pay to watch.

There are a number of basic tutorials on Patreon for free. The ones I'm posting to YouTube are also free. I just haven't had a lot of time lately to make videos although it's on my list of things to do Smile

There are a number of CI4 videos on YouTube created by people other than me, also.

Remember, CI4 is only a few months old. And Laracasts exists because Jeffrey Way (a framework fan at the time) started making videos, then realized he might be able to make a living off it. He's very good at explaining. Personally, I'd love to have a fan jump up and do the same thing for CodeIgniter. At one point I wanted to be that person but had to ground myself to the reality that I don't have enough time in the day to manage the project, code on the framework, and run a tutorial site, especially when combined with the fact that I have a full-time job, a family, am building a mother-in-law suite on the house, and occasionally like to do things where I'm not staring at a screen coding lol.

tl;dr - YouTube is your friend, and I'm waiting for someone to create a CI-Casts site myself Smile
