Superb! Confidently delivered, clear, and very inspiring. What a great way to round off the conference! Well done Liam.

Nice talk for the end of #phpuk16. I feel motivated to find my 15 minutes / week!

Thank you for trying to inspire more people, myself included, to find the time to give back to the community. Here's to doing my bit!

Easy listen to round up a great phpuk16! Definetly made me want to fix this bug on Joind.in, where you write a comment then press submit, and realise you didn't rate it, and have to rewrite the comment! Hehe. Yes, this is the second attempt hence bad grammar! Thanks Liam! :):)

As has already been said this talk was a great way to close the conference and hopefully inspires a few more PRs on some open source projects. Thank you!

A well delivered talk, shame that the organisers put such a similar talk the day before.

I am here fulling out all of the comments diligently.
As Liam points out, it only takes 15 minutes to make a difference.

This has given me encouragement and ideas for how I can play a greater role in the community

Wondering where I can find 15 minutes a week, but I already do a few of the things Liam suggested, so I won't feel so guilty if I can't find any more time on a regular basis.... but a host of good ideas on how to give back to the php community

I struggled to get into the talk, but judging by the other comments that reflects more on me than on the speaker. If I can give constructive criticism, Liam spoke a little quick in places that left me (even as a native English speaker) struggling to work out what was being said. I also felt that the content was a tiny bit preachy, and didn't push the benefits to the contributor of contributing back to OS.

These are small complaints in a well delivered talk however.

A great overview of why and how to give back to the community, even if you're strapped for time, and even if you don't want to (or can't) deliver code. A little cringeworthy in places but the enthusiasm and style more than made up for this.

An engaging and inspirational talk. A great subject to end the conference on and fire people up before going home.

Delivery was a little fast sometimes. Nice and clear slide designs. My only niggle was that I don't think you needed to swear so much to get the message home.

I struggled with how to rate this. I think this is a pretty common topic for a keynote and talks generally, and I think that this variant was pretty well delivered, but not the best I've ever seen.

I think that there could have been a bit more focus on the benefits of giving 15min, rather than where you can spend it, and I feel it needed an original twist.

15mins taken to do Joind.in ! Can't add much more than the other 5 stars haven't already said.

Really took inspiration from how to get involved - always think it means coding, but as Liam pointed out, it's more than that.

Thanks.

We definitely need a reminder to get involved, and a keynote is the right place to reach all the attendees.
I have a couple points of criticism the speaker should be prepared to address:
- many involvements in open source are paid positions; acknowledging that will make stand out more the contributions of volunteers.
- It's not always a matter of committing time but also of personal energy; community involvement can take or give you energy for your other projects.

The most inspirational keynote of the conference in my opinion; a message already familiar to me, but is important nonetheless as many don't really think about how they could actually contribute back (even if they want to, they might not have time as you say). Very nice.

A good talk, very well delivered. Agree totally with the message, though am myself wondering now where to find that time!

Fantastic! I really enjoyed Liam's talk and thought it was a great way to end the conference. Liam definitely inspired and motivated me to find small ways to make contributions to the community and I'm looking forward to putting his tips into practice. Well done!

Liam had a difficult task in closing the Conference talking about a topic touched on by other key notes. He did so with impressive aplomb, and enthusiasm. I felt inspired, and I'm sure I wasn't alone.

A fitting end to a brilliant conference. Always ending up making me feel guilty for not contributing enough :)

Great talk, informative and inspiring as I have found myself giving 15 minutes back more often. :D
