Recently Taylor sat down with the folks at Larachat. Watch the recording to learn some other nice interesting tidbits about Laravel and it’s ecosystem.

Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
