Laravel News:
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.

Stefan Koopmanschap:
A list of podcasts
Jul 05, 2017 @ 09:12:57

Stefan Koopmanschap has a new post to his site sharing a list of podcasts he enjoys and thought you might too.

I had sitting in travel not being able to do anything. Listening to music can help, but can end up also being frustrating. While I was working at Schiphol last year I got pointed to podcasts. Since then I've been really getting into listening to podcasts on my daily commute and it's been making the trip a lot more fun... and useful.

Here is a random collection of podcasts that I've been listening to in the past year and a half, on many different subjects. My main problem right now is that it's so many that I'm way behind on the episodes of most of these. Ah well, it's still quite good content.

Technology-related shows in the list include /dev/hell, Sound of Symfony and Voices of the ElePHPant. Others relate to topics like "justice, true crime, wrongful convictions etc", video games and a few Dutch language technology podcasts.
