Interesting to hear from Taylor about Laravel origins and a sneak peek into what’s next

Such a personal QA session. Enjoyed it a lot.

Thank you Taylor, for taking the time to speak to us - and for all your work on the Laravel framework!

Enjoyed the QA.

Wow this Q&A was amazing! I thought I've heard it all before but Jonty did a great job with starting this interview.

A really nice QA session. Thanks!

Great insights to the birth of Laravel, Taylor’s sense of humour really shone through right at the end when pretending to be about to reveal the new secret project Vapor.

It was very interesting to hear Taylor talking about his personal life, why he created Laravel and what he wanted to achieve. Very refreshing after 6 technical talks.

was really interesting to hear Taylors journey and how laravel came to be.

but I think the praise needs to go to Jonty for doing a great job as interviewer. from the research he must have done before hand to dig out the old posts that helped guide the questions and it showed in the relaxed responses from Taylor. sometime Q&A interviews are a bit disjointed from just going over a list of random questions but this flowed great.

A really great session. On the drive home on the tuesday I thought to myself I wish more conferences did this actually. It was a nice way to wind down the conference on the monday. I think future LLU conferences going forward should maybe do this with with others. It's really nice to remember that the devs we see as big names were just hacking things together at first and it wasn't some great plan from the start, it's very inspiring and motivational. If not a 1 on 1, maybe just a talk with 2 or 3 speakers talking about getting into dev like a podcast style thing with questions from the audience after a warm up.
