I just wanted to let you guys know that there will be no new updates on Laravel on Azure until Laravel 5.1 LTS has been released. Once it has been released, I will a bit more into detail how to use Laravel together with the infrastructure that is part of the Azure ecosystem (Redis and Sendgrid where next on my list).
I am aware those are all fairly easy tutorials but to be honest If I had known a couple of the things I know now earlier, a lot of things would have happened faster. But if you want to know about any specific topics, please let me know I'm happy to write about this.
UPDATE: I have been sick for a while now so I couldn't really update this. I will get back on it as soon as I can.
