Laracon EU 2024

• 1 min read

Early February 2024 I've spent a few days in Amsterdam to attend my first Laracon: Laracon EU.

I had a blast. Besides listening to great talks, I've met many familiar faces from the community I've only known from social media or GitHub. (I even skipped a couple of talks, as I wanted to hang out and talk with others)

Shaking hands and talking with folks in the flesh was the biggest highlight for me. I wish I would have been less nervous, so that I would have asked proper, good questions; instead of awkwardly standing there. 😅

Will be more prepared for my next conference.

The venue was awesome as well. A big music hall filled with comfy seats and various places and levels to sit.

The food and drinks were pretty good as well. So were the spontaneous dinners with other Laravel developers.

Definitely want to attend a possible Laracon EU 2025, or even another Laracon event in Europe later this year.
