A recap of Laracon US 2017

Laracon US 2017 was an amazing conference. Sid published this excellent recap that contains many links to slides and related content.

I attended my first Laracon in person and I have to say I really enjoyed the experience — maybe more than I expected to. It was well organised and the talks were diverse, informative and actionable. Day 1 was all technical and mostly revolved around Laravel. Day 2 had a different mix of talks and the non-technical ones were thought-provoking and entertaining.
