I will deliberate on the importance of stress-testing an application before launch and also introducing a very simple helper package that I made to speed up bulk inserting thousands of rows of test data.
The package is Laravel-specific but the general concept is tech agnostic.

Really like the concept of time, how does it help me!

Yay live demo! ?

Maybe explain or give some insight about how you went about speeding it up.

I loved that the problem and solution were clearly (and frustratingly) demonstrated! Good length and quantity of content for a lightning talk.
I would recommend getting a laser pointer or a really long ruler so you don't have to enter the Matrix! The tone felt less upbeat than the previous speakers.

Really great idea, good delivery. And the lube demo worked! Woo!

Great talk, well paced with good information and a great demo that was easy to follow. Might even get involved in the package development because of this.

Pretty good talk, risked a live demo to demonstrate the strengths of the "bulk inserter" while keeping it overly short and sweet. Good job.

Fantastic talk by Martin. Brave doing a live demo, but it worked all okay (phew). Felt a bit rushed, but like the other talks, time is the enemy. Would have been good to go through the bulkinserter code, but that can be done later in my own time when looking through Git.

Kudos to a lightning talk live demo!
It's a brilliant idea but for people on commercial projects it might be better to present the idea and then advertise "here I made a package to do it for you" rather than present a package and then explain what it does.
But, it's at an awesome package and will be checking it out :)

I liked the live demo, knowing how it works would be good too (I assume it was a single insert statement).

Great live demo
Would’ve liked a bit more on resources/frameworks etc
All round very good !

Really enjoyed this talk! I do quite a bit of seeding and this approach will be useful.

Would be interesting to see a quick demo with a slightly more complex seeding scenario, however I understand that the time limit was 10 minutes.

An engaging presentation covering a common problem within development and a smart way to solve it.
A bit of coverage of the package would be a bonus. I’ll be off to GitHub for this though..

Very interesting talk showing how your framework sames time... and brave live demo!

Loved the demo and no-fluff approach. Super interesting and clear. Maybe could do with a bit more of a summary at the end? Thanks for sharing!

Great talk, with about the right amount of content for the time. Would’ve liked to have seen an example of the bare SQL differences to hammer the point home.

Interesting talk introducing library for faster seeders. Would be good if it had a few more speedup tips

Speaker spoke clearly but making a seeder is not the same as stress testing and the majority of the talk seemed to concentrate on the seeder and the library.

Five stars for proving my hunch that Laravel's Eloquent ORM is slow and doesn't scale well with large datasets :)

Good talk, well delivered

As an organiser I always get a bit worried when a live demo starts, however Martin's was well prepared and worked really well.

To improve: Maybe a quick explanation as to how the Bulk Loader speeded things up.
