Really enjoyed this. Picked up some tips I did't know (which is the point I guess).

Well delivered too.

Thijs is a fantastically engaging speaker, and always a pleasure to watch. The talk was well structured and compared the two tools well - I'd have liked more detail on each but that is probably an expectations mismatch.

Good talk. Picked up some good insights, even as an existing Varnish/Nginx user.

An interesting talk. Taught me a lot I didn't know about NGINX's caching capabilities.

Excellent speaker and a fine talk - its only possible flaw being that I feel little the wiser about whether I should be pursuing a Varnish or Nginx route from here! (I guess the correct answer though is, why not both?)

Excellent technical talk, the speaker led us through a tough subject, keeping us engaged and entertained. I came out of this presentation with a better grasp of what a reverse proxy is for and what the pros and cons of each solution are.

I thought it was a good talk, and it has inspired me to do more research into both tools. Some new ideas (for me at least).
Would have liked a bit more on NginX as a server but maybe not the focus of the talk anyhow.

I have seen Thijs deliver a few talks now and have always enjoyed them. His style is engaging and humorous and backed with knowledge.

I found this talk particularly useful as it addressed a problem area that I am looking to deal with soon, and it helped focus my thinking on the matter

Informative and fun, looking forward to implementing some of the techniques mentioned.

Awesome talk. Very well explained. The speaker was explaining the key points for a reverse caching proxy while showing how to apply them in Varnish and Nginx.

As a good point: Having hats across the presentation to identify each slide is a total win.
As a bad point: ESI technology looks promising but given the fact that a lot of developments on todays are APIs, I would expected to see how apply it to JSON responses too.

This was an intermediate talk covering off much of what I already knew, but it had some strong pearls of wisdom (especially on logging filtering in Varnish and how to make nginx play nicely with nodeJS web sockets) so I got what I wanted out of it. The presentation was easy, entertaining, and Thijs was clearly enthusiastic. A winning combination and I look forward to more like this.

Tough to squeeze in a lot into an hour on 2 technologies that could take an hour each and more, thanks

Could you upload the video of the presentation somewhere?

Dear anonymous feedback person

Thanks for the 4-star rating. Unfortunately the video footage is not something I control. The PHPUK conference organizers have a crew that deals with this. I'm pretty sure it will require some time before all footage is edited and uploaded. If you have questions about that, please contact the PHPUK organizers.

In the meanwhile please enjoy the slides I've just uploaded:

Good talk, lots of details, but as someone not using either but interested in doing so I'd have liked to see more of a conclusion and summary, in which recommendations for which to use under certain circumstances.
