Pre-conference workshops at SymfonyLive London 2018 are almost sold out!
Sep 10, 2018 @ 13:29:31

On the Symfony blog there's a new post for those that have been putting off getting their tickets to SymfonyLive London and, more specifically, the pre-conference workshops. Time is limited and the training sessions are almost sold out!

All Symfony conferences come with pre-conference workshops. We organized them to enable the conference attendees to get trained on Symfony and its ecosystem just before the conference, during special workshops sessions at a very special price. The idea is to get the most out of the conference and enhance your Symfony skills before learning new tips and tricks from the speakers’ experience during the conference. We organize 4 different pre-conference workshops at SymfonyLive London 2018 on September 27th and they are almost all sold out!

They also share a listing of the pre-conference workshops happening at this year's event:

  • "Symfony 4 Best Practices" by Nicolas Grekas from Symfony
  • "Building API-driven apps with API Platform" by Kévin Dunglas from Les-Tilleuls.coop
  • "Symfony Messenger" by Samuel Rozé, creator of the component
  • "Lightning Fast Tests" by Jakub Zalas, Symfony core team member

Each workshop title in the post is a link to more information about the workshop and how to pick up your tickets. For more information about the conference, ticket pricing and to order yours, check out the main conference site.

Books from Laracon 2018
Aug 21, 2018 @ 09:36:57

On the Laravel News site they've posted an interesting perspective that reflects on some of the speakers from this year's Laracon US (2018) sharing the books some of them have written.

We love books here at Laravel News! The Laracon US 2018 all-star lineup of speakers delivered stellar talks, and many of them have written best-selling books! We thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of books authored by Laracon speakers as well as other books mentioned during their talks.

Books mentioned include:

There are several others in the list, each with a brief summary of their contents and links to a few other related resources.

Laracon Chicago Recap
Aug 02, 2018 @ 13:19:50

For those that weren't able to make it to the Laracon US 2018 (Chicago) conference, the Laravel News site has posted a recap of the event and their experiences.

Laracon US 2018 is now in the books and it was a fantastic event and a lot of fun was had in Chicago. As someone who has never visited Chicago before I was very impressed with the city. The weather was magnificent and the parts I walked around seemed safe and pretty clean for a large city.

[...] Every Laracon strives to bring a great experience from the venue to the location, the swag, and this year didn’t disappoint.

The post then goes on to talk about some of the swag the conference handed out, the venue where it was held and a link to the keynote from Laravel creator Taylor Otwell (and a matching live blog). The post also includes several pictures the author (Eric Barnes) took during the conference.
