Hi devs, I'll show you how to create a migration in Laravel 11. We'll learn how to make a database table using migration in Laravel 11.

I'll guide you through creating a database table using Laravel migration. We'll use Laravel 11 commands to make a migration for the table.

In this example, we'll simply create a "posts" table with columns for id, title, body, is_published, created_at, and updated_at. We'll generate a new migration using Laravel 11 command and add the specified columns. Then, we'll run the migration, and a table will be created in the MySQL database. Let's check out the tutorial below.

        Schema::create('posts', function (Blueprint $table) {
     * Reverse the migrations.
    public function down(): void
