The Laravel community in Pakistan is holding its fist Laravel conference in Karachi Pakistan, just off the Arabian Sea. This is a one-day event on December 10th that starts at 2:30PM and runs through 6:30.
Their goal with this is to start a series of Laravel awareness meetups before the main Laracon event and to help people interested in Laravel grow as developers. Some of the topics include a brief history of Laravel, a Laravel Quickstart, Laravel Developers Toolkit, and a group discussion.
If you are in the area you can find out more about this even from the official site and register right from there.
