The Road To Laracon Soundtrack
Jul 20, 2017 @ 09:46:12

On the Laravel News site they've posted an article sharing a series of podcasts dubbed the "Road to Laracon" where hosts Jacob Bennett and Michael Dyrynda talked with Laracon US 2017 speakers and asked them to suggest one song to use in the playlist.

Next week is Laracon US, and Jacob Bennett and Michael Dyrynda have been interviewing many of the speakers on the podcast. As part of the interview, they’ve asked the speakers to pick a few of their favorite songs and put it together in a Spotify playlist.

It features twenty-three songs and is an hour and forty-three minutes of listening pleasure and I enjoy trying to match the song to the speaker.

If you'd like to hear the interviews with some of the speakers, they've linked to a few at the end of the post including Freek Van der Herten, Jack McDade and Laura Elizabeth.

2016 Laravel Survey Results
Jan 05, 2017 @ 13:13:27

The Laravel News site has published the results from their latest survey of the Laravel ecosystem and feedback directly from developers using it (and other) technologies.

Back in September, we partnered with LaraJobs to run a Laravel survey to see what types of projects people are taking on with Laravel as well as get some feedback on what the Laravel community could be doing better. The results ended up with over 1,600 submissions and some interesting insights.

You can see the complete results on this 2016 Laravel Survey Results page and thanks for everyone who took the time to fill it out.

Questions answered in the survey results include:

  • What's the one reason why you selected Laravel over other frameworks?
  • How many production applications do you have using Laravel?
  • How many users does your largest Laravel based SaaS have?
  • Are you able to find the quantity and quality of Laravel developers you need?

For each question they've shared the results (bar charts) and provided a brief commentary along with a list of things people suggested as additions to the Laravel framework.

80 Laravel Tutorials, Packages, and Resources from 2016
Jan 02, 2017 @ 10:32:02

To start off the new year the Laravel News site has posted a list of 80 tutorials, packages and resources they've shared with the community over the past year.

As 2016 is coming to a close it’s a great time to look back on the year and see just how much progress has been made. Laravel had a busy year with 5.3 being released, Laracon, updates to all the components, and now gearing up for the Laravel 5.4 release.

To look back on the year I’ve put together a list of some of the hits of 2016 and arranged them by month so you can get a quick overview of all the highlights.

There's lots of good content posted here and it's interesting to see all of the developments in not only the Laravel community but also the wider PHP community (including the fifth birthday of Laravel in June). Check out the full post for the complete list and links to each post.

The 2016 Laravel Survey
Sep 16, 2016 @ 10:16:01

On the Laravel News site there's a new post talking about a survey that's being put out by the LaraJobs site/service with questions covering the current state of the Laravel community.

The Laravel community is growing fast and we thought it’d be interesting to see what types of projects people are taking on with Laravel as well as get some feedback on what the Laravel community could be doing better.

If you’re a Laravel developer or in charge of a Laravel team and have a few minutes we’d love for you to take the survey.

The survey will run for a few weeks and at the end, the results will be tabulated, analyzed and shared on the Laravel News site. Even if you're not a Laravel user, you might want to take this poll (don't worry, it's anonymous) and share some about why you don't use the framework - there's a few questions about that too.
