Was the overview I was hoping for. The before/after examples were well-chosen and helpful.

A lot of good information that has me more interested in trying out php 7 sooner rather than later. I might just upgrade my VPS to it when I get home from the conference (if it's available) so I can test it out.

Great talk. Knowledgeable speaker. Makes me want to upgrade and write a whole new project from scratch.

Came for a succinct primer on new stuff in PHP 7 and that's what I got. Hugs were optional.

The talk contained very good information, but I found the speakers tone often condescending. I would have preferred a lighter tone.

I'll admit that part of me, coming from a strong C/C++ background LOVES PHP for its type agnostic variables... So when I heard Larry start presenting the new features of PHP7, I was both excited and frustrated for much of the talk. The frustration was eventually alleviated by his explanation of strict vs non-strict declarations, but I felt like that could've happened much sooner.

That being said, I think Larry did a GREAT job of outlining the GREATEST benefits of PHP7 in a reasonable order. Personally, I'm a performance guy, so hearing about the performance optimizations in the latest version sold me. Period.

His insight to the Drupal team breaking PHP7 and causing numerous bugfix campaigns was reassuring however could've been a little bit more detailed. Nonetheless he pounded his fist and exclaimed that it's production ready TODAY.

... So if my production servers crash on Monday after I go full PHP7, it's your fault Larry ;-)

Great overview of the new features and improvements in PHP 7. Definitely should entice those that have not yet upgraded to take the plunge and not fear the new .0 version.

Quick note: isset() returns false for variables that exist, but are null, so $var ?? expr is equivalent to simply isset($var) ? $var : expr;

This made me want to immediately switch to PHP7. I was very happy with the content. My only regret was that the session was over too quickly.
