The Laracon EU 2016 videos are now available

Link –

This year's Laracon EU was an amazing conference. The venue was astonishing, there were lots of cool talks and interesting people to talk to. If you're using Laravel or PHP going to this conference really is a no brainer.

If you were unable to attend or want to see the talk you missed during the conference you can now do so. The organisers have uploaded video's of all talks to their YouTube channel.

I had the honor speaking there as well. My talk was about managing backups with Laravel. Here's the video of my first ever conference talk:

At one point during my talk I show this slide on future plans for the package:screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-10-04-54

I'm proud to say that all that work is already done: version 3 of laravel-backup was made Laravel 5.3 compatible. Version 4 of the package uses Laravel 5.3's native notifications and uses PHP 7 features to keep the code clear. The db-dumper package, which is used under the hood, was rewritten and is now easier to use.

I'll definitely go to the next Laracon EU conference and hope to see you there too.

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 month 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.
