The first Laracon day is over and there is much stuff to talk about! The day was full of amazing talks, people and news.


  • Laravel's community
  • Justin Jackson's talk about mental health in life.
  • Laravel 6 & New Branding
  • Vapor


The environment in the event was amazing. People are super-friendly and welcoming, really opened to new conversations and debates about a plethora of topics.

The sense of collaboration is felt in the air, community members are willing to help each other, share knowledge, build open-source projects and have a great time.

Justin's Talk

I would say this talk stole the show.

Some top phrases he referred to:

"Every action you take is a vote for the person you want to become" James Clear

"The psychological baggage we carry with us, if it's left unexamined, can lead us into destructive behaviors" Jerry Colonna

Top tips:

1- Get professional help.
2- Assume ownership for your life.
3- Do things, repeatedly, that are good for you and others.
4- Get rid of bad habits
5- Lose the ego

It's not common to listen to mental health talks in tech conferences. HUGE applause to this initiative. I believe it's essential for the wellness of people.
