My Talk at Laracon 2016

creativity, Design, Development, and writing

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking about creativity at Laracon 2016. I've found that in the agency world, people are lumped unfairly into two groups: Creatives and Non-Creatives. This is unfair, and tends to label developers as not creative people. This couldn't be any further from the truth. Developers are some of the most creative, problem-solving people I've ever known.
