Each slide was a surprise about minutiae of PHP that can have a huge impact on the code I write daily. This was a pretty good talk and I would love to see it evolve into a conference talk.

I have recently started toying with the idea of pursuing the same certification, and even purchased the same book that Lisa spoke about. Like her, I also found there were some things mentioned in the book that I had idea you could do in PHP.

I enjoyed the talk, and thought it was well-informed. Thanks for speaking, Lisa!

I learned something from each slide in this presentation! It was a great mix of nuance applicable to all developer levels.

There was significant effort put into the code examples but I didn't have enough time to read them. The code examples are familiar to us speakers because we wrote them, but take more time for the audience to read and find the demonstrated point. That also makes the presentation a little longer with less pressure to pack more in.

If this were fleshed out into a 50-minute conference talk, consider weaving in study tactics tailored to programming. Use what your husband knows as a teacher and craft those ideas to a developer audience. That insight gives you a unique perspective above anyone else giving this talk (i.e. more likely to be accepted to speak!) You could focus on not only the tactics themselves but perhaps the scientific studies or books read by teachers. Programmers always want to know, "But why?" :)
