You should go to Laracon. Not solely because Laravel is one of the best things to come out of PHP in years. Nor because of its creator’s charming drawl.
You should go because for the first time in years there is a small chance that The Nerdary (the one that counts) may be assembling. Sure, Mark Huot has yet to commit and Jenn Lukas doesn’t even know that I’m going to try to drag her to DC and YES that means the previous statement about us assembling is not even close to true whatsoever right now.
…but there’s hope. And who are we as human beings without hope, fun conferences and beautiful PHP frameworks?
You should go, and I’ll be there accepting your free drinks!
