Talk was a bit long. The content was somewhat interesting but the style of presentation was hard to digest.

There was no time for questions. Wat?!

Otherwise the talk was very well written. Lots of good info and extremely well organized.

Ending was very abrupt.

Seriously there should have been q&a at the end.

Good presentation. We had most of the problems Matthew's talked about a few months ago and I picked a couple of interesting concepts we can apply to.

Great information on the complexity of building an API. Would be great to have a follow-up session on actually coding an API with apigility.

Great talk. Sad to have missed the second half of it.

good talk though i feel like details were a bit magical and i wished for more details on the internals of the tool/product

I was convinced of the problems in API development but not convinced that apigility was the way for me to solve them in my projects. A tool first version of this talk probably would have kept my attention better.

See Jame's comment. The "API problems" part of the talk was good though.

Really god talk. Broke down the things you should be thinking about when building an API and how important they are in carving the direction of the project itself. Really excited about Apigility also!

This was a good presentation, on Apigility. But seemed out of place as a keynote IMO. The first half of the talk was very good as it went into the problems of building an API.

But then it turned into a "So use Apigility", which yes, is an AWESOME product that I highly endorse. But I was surprised to suddenly see half-of-a-keynote (plenary?) become suddenly a pitch to use Apigility.

Especially when the advertising for this talk mentioned nothing about Apigility. So I was expecting just a general inspirational API API API style keynote.

Had this been pitched as a regular session, with the title: "APIs are hard: Introducing Apigility". Then I think it's a 5-star talk.

I agree with some of the criticism: it wasn't a typical keynote and it was actually an Apigility pitch.

But then again: Matthew clearily indicated this at the beginning of the talk, so no suprises there.

I liked this talk, but I've seen the Apigility talk at ZendConEU, so in terms of content there were no surprises there either.

The only thing I would change is the title: I would mention Apigility so that people know in advance what they're going to see.

But still a very good talk delivered by a good speaker.

While others have commented that this seemed out of place as a keynote, I think that's exactly what made it a good keynote - it was informative and described a concrete solution to a real life problem, rather than just being an hour or so of entertainment. Maybe I'm a little biased, but I'm excited about where Apigility is going and seeing all of the new capabilities since it was originally introduced at ZendCon. +5 from me!
