Laravel, as we all know is a free, open-source PHP web framework, created by Taylor Otwell and intended for the development of web applications following the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern and based on Symfony.
Laravel made its first appearance on June 9, 2011, since then it became, one of the most popular PHP frameworks for developing web applications.

Well, in @laravelphp 5.7 you’ll now get a clear, concise message saying that the method doesn’t exist on the model 👌https://t.co/uKAxbIVdmv pic.twitter.com/aWgQ8zr2ak
