Wat zegt Freek over zijn Talk?

"XDebug is a great step debugger for PHP that is helpful in a lot of situations. For fixing smallish issues though, some people tend to dump debugging information with functions like vardumpand printr, ....If you have many of such statements, and have fixed the bug, it can be troublesome to hunt down and remove them. Everybody has probably forgotten at least once to remove it and pushed it to production.

Ray ( is a desktop application that aims to solve these problems. In this talk we'll go over which debugging options there are in PHP and how Ray can improve your dump and die debugging experience in Laravel. Finally we'll take a look under the hood of Ray and discuss the internals."

Wat zegt Pieter over zijn Talk?

After working for many years with the Symfony framework as a professional software engineer, I was surprised using Laravel in many ways. Some ‘features’ are giving me a headache, while others are way more elegant than any other solution I’ve experienced so far. My lesson: to become a better software engineer, you should combine framework philosophies & solutions.
