Announcing the Laravel Worldwide Meetup

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 3 minute read

I'm happy to announce the official Laravel Worldwide Meetup. This monthly meetup will be streamed via YouTube. The first edition will be held on 14th July at 18:00 UTC.

There is a select group of people, sometimes jokingly referred to as "The Elite" that you often see speaking at Laracons and other events. Even though you will probably see some of these fine artisans on the stream, the main goal of this meetup is to introduce new speakers to the community.

The first meetup

My first guests will be Joseph Silber and Mohammed Said. Joseph is one of the unsung heroes of the Laravel ecosystem. Though he's not that active on social networks, he contributed a lot of excellent features to the framework. Recently, he helped to add lazy collections, which is also the subject of his talk.

Mohamed needs no introduction. He started working for Laravel a couple of years ago. Mohamed has worked on both the open-source and paid parts of the Laravel ecosystem. Lately, he's been focusing on queues. In his talk, he'll show you some neat things you can do with Laravel queues.

Next editions

The second edition of the meetup will be held on Tuesday 25th August. It'll serve as a nice warm-up for Laracon Online, which will be held the following day.

I'm still looking for speakers for the August edition. A talk should be 30 minutes or less in length. The subject should be Laravel or related technology. Do you want to share your Laravel knowledge, or have built something you'd like to showcase, submit your talk idea here. First-time speakers are most welcome!

The website

Though the meetup website itself is pretty simple, I thought it would be nice to share it. You'll find the source code in this repo on GitHub. It's a simple Laravel app, no surprises there. For the admin section, Laravel Nova is used. I want to thank Dries for his help styling the site.

Closing thoughts

If you already want a taste of what this meetup will feel like, check out this tryout I recorded last month with Nuno Maduro and JMac. I'm very much looking forward to hosting the Laravel Worldwide Meetup, and I hope you're enthusiastic about it too. Let me know in the comments below who you would like to see speaking at one of the future editions of the meetup.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.

Yup, immediately after the stream. It only take YouTube a couple of minutes to process it.
