Laracon Online 2017 Recap
Mar 14, 2017 @ 10:45:56

The Laravel News site has posted a recap of the Laravel Online conference that happened back on March 8th (2017).

The first Laracon Online conference just wrapped up and based on feedback many loved the event. I want to personally thank the Laravel community for helping make this a reality.

[...] We had developers from all over the world hanging out in Slack, watching the live stream, and socializing. It got a little crazy at times but everyone behaved, and it was fun watching the room scroll so fast that even the world champion speed reader would have trouble keeping up.

The post includes feedback from the attendees of the conference, a brief summary of each of the talks presented and a list of sponsors and other resources to get more detail on the event.

Q&A With The Speakers From Laracon Online 2017
Mar 13, 2017 @ 10:15:37

On the Tighten blog there's an interview posted with some of the speakers from the recent Laracon Online conference that included Jeffrey Way, Evan You, Jason McCreary and Taylor Otwell.

Wednesday was the inaugural Laracon Online, an online conference devoted to bringing great Laravel teaching to folks who may not be able to attend an in-person conference. Tighten co-founder Matt Stauffer spoke on Laravel's service container, along with Taylor Otwell, creator of Laravel; Jeffrey Way, creator of Laracasts; Adam Wathan, Tighten alum; and several more excellent speakers.

During the session, conference attendees asked questions for the speakers to answer after their talks were over. However, the Slack channel was a fast-paced mix of conversations and Q&A, so we wanted to aggregate the Q&A sessions that did happen together in a single place.

The interview consolidates the questions asked of each of the eight speakers including in some cases links to the resources mentioned.

Changes coming to the Laravel release cycle
Dec 05, 2016 @ 09:20:35

On the Laravel News site there's an announcement posted about a change in the Laravel release schedule, an update from the original 2013 announcement.

Yesterday, Taylor announced on Twitter that this is going to be changing to a January and July cycle, pushing each release out a month from its current schedule.

This has two primary advantages for the development team and the first is it allows more time for testing after Symfony’s release. The second advantage is it’ll better coincide with Laracon, the yearly Laravel conference.

This means a bit of a delay on the release of the next major version of the framework (v5.4) but only by one month. The six month cycle will then resume after that slight delay. You can find out more about the remainder of the release cycle in the original post based on Taylor's comments at Laracon 2013.

Laraconf Brazil 2016
Oct 17, 2016 @ 11:53:12

On the Laravel News site there's a post that wraps up Laraconf Brazil 2016 with a quick summary for those that weren't able to attend.

The Laravel community in South America put together their first unofficial one day Laravel conference in Brazil on October 8th.

“What I most enjoyed was the ability to network with every attendee,” said Matheus Marabesi one of the organizers, “people around Brazil came to our conference, and it was amazing”.

The event featured ten talks from scaling applications to TDD, to career development. It was a nice mixture of things developers care about. They also, with the help of the sponsors, were able to record every talk and have it available in a YouTube playlist.

As the conference was in Brazil, the sessions aren't in English unfortunately. They included sessions covering: caching strategies, test-driven development, multi-tenant architecture and Elasticsearch. The post also includes several photos from the event and answers to a few other questions from organizer Matheus Marabesi.
