My summary of Laracon Online 2018Laracon Online is a distributed online conference where the talks are streamed live. Video recordings are also available shortly afterwards. This has proven very useful for me this year, because I could not watch the entire live broadcast. Since I finally managed to catch up on the talks I missed, here is what I got out of this 2nd edition of Laracon Online!
Migrating my personal website to JigsawI recently redesigned and migrated my personal website to Jigsaw, a static site generator built using the same technologies as Laravel. Here is what I learned along the way.
My notes from Laracon Online 2017On March 8th 2017, I attended the very first Laracon Online event. This official Laravel conference was entirely streamed live, the speakers were doing their talk from their home/office. The atmosphere was pretty different compared to a traditional conference, but the formula worked very well for a single-day event. Luckily for me, the schedule was based on the same time zone as mine, so I could enjoy the presentations live, without sacrificing sleep. However, for those in different parts of the world, recordings were available the very next day. The conference was packed full of great content, even for someone slowly learning Laravel on the side. Here is a write-up of my notes and what I learned, from the standpoint of someone learning the framework.
