If you weren't able to make it to this year's Laracon US conference, the Nexmo blog has shared a summary of the event including some of their own highlights.
I recently attended Laracon in New York City for the 4th year in a row. This year the conference was held at New World Stages in Hell’s Kitchen, with 500 people in attendance (and a waiting list of over 1000!) making it the biggest one yet.
While the conference focuses on the Laravel PHP framework, the talks were diverse and covered topics like database segregation for multi-tenant applications, aesthetic and design tips for developers, advice on growing and scaling a side project into a business, and the importance of deep-focus work.
The author focuses on four of the talks that she found most useful:
- "CRUDDY by Design" from Adam Wathan
- "Custom Laravel" by Matt Stauffer
- "Slay the Beast" from Jeffrey Way
The final talk was actually a keynote from Taylor Otwell himself covering the major changes that are coming in the 5.5 version of the framework including the Laravel Horizon queue management package. Each section comes with details of the session and links to other sources for more information.
