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.

Gary Hockin:
Conference Speaking for Everyone - Submitting Chapter (Free)
Apr 25, 2018 @ 10:25:16

Gary Hockin had been working on a book for anyone out there looking to share their experience or ideas at a tech conference but didn't end up finishing it: "Conference Speaking for Everyone". He did want to share some of the content from the book to at least help would-be speakers deal with one of the main parts of conference speaking: Submitting to a Call for Papers.

What even is this? This is a full chapter from my started-but-never-finished book called Conference Speaking for Everyone. I’m posting this finished single chapter that’s been sitting on my laptop for nearly a year to a) Get some feedback and hopefully some impetus to finish the book, and b) Put what I hope is some useful information into the hands of the people who need it.

In the example chapter he covers topics like:

  • how speakers are accepted to speak at a conference
  • what kind of topics you could potentially speak about
  • tips for writing session abstracts/summaries

He finishes up the chapter with a mention of expenses around the speaking (if selected). The policies from conference to conference vary, so he recommends being sure you completely understand them before agreeing to speak.
