Worst talk of the day - terrible - boring, badly presented, too much detail, not useful. Didn't learn anything useful from it.
Yes - the topics covered were interesting, and I'm sure this guy knows his stuff - but it was irrelevant based on the subject of the talk. Overall, very poor.
I'm not sure that all the new bits in 5.4 are going to be useful, especially some of the advanced traits stuff (you have to worry that the only example is american spelling of Mom/Mum).
But the talk was very good, engaging, and very useful. Thanks.
Took a while to "get going"
I did appreciated the insight to the BBC infrastructure (pretty amazing) & the background, but took a while to get to the monitoring bit which felt a bit rushed through. The speaker himself said that this was one of the first times he has done this talk, and that felt evident.
But it was useful, engaging, thanks.
I missed the joke at the start (that wasn't me complaining on twitter though) - but once I got it, brilliant talk. So true in places.
It did finish a bit early though, and I would have liked to have heard a bit more on how the situations are dealt with. Would have been great to have the last 20mins as a proper workshop.
Only got going towards the end, and each panel member needed a mic.
Didn't really learn anything new - perhaps a short presentation at the start to get the "fight" going early.
Someone pointed out that at other conferences, the end of day keynotes are presented after the evening beers have come out - I think that is a nice touch, it adds a more social relaxed feel to the end of the day.
However, the panel were really good.
Didn't need somewhere quieter, but somewhere with a more reserved area - felt squashed in and was difficult to know what was going on at the start. But did some "networking" and though it was good.
Brilliant. If you didn't get it then give up your development career now! Really thought provoking once the penny dropped (quite early on).
Although enough truths behind the curve balls to make you question everything....which was the the point (I think! )
First slides interesting, couple of interesting points but had too much of a tutorial. The only real interesting talking point was about the green dots on Dogg but that was the last slide and glossed over. Would have liked more real world experience examples like that.
Well presented, good talk (although not a fan of 2 presenters either).
Although I was glad it wasn't a sales pitch, would have liked to have seen a little bit of "app engine is better than AWS/someone else/ because of XYZ".
(and it was quite funny that the last talk in the rackspace track was about app engine!)
The 2stars was more about the relevance of the talk - not how it was presented. I thought the talk was really good (presented), but I didn't really find how (or why) it was useful to me in a world of composer, etc. - so yes, more about the how and why really.
It was a good talk, and a good speaker, but I was expecting a bit more of the "advanced" stuff you can do with queues, the first part was an introduction to queues which I felt the title of the talk lead me to believe it would be more in depth. But still, enjoyed the talk.
Marcelllo is a great speaker, and delivers the talk really well. Enjoyed the content, but I did feel it was a little similar to his past talks (which was sort of expected, it´s nice to have a refresh, but was expecting something a bit "new")
The speaker was great, well delivered, but really sorry for the 2 stars but it sounded like it should be more than an introduction to CI/CD; I think a lot of people around me felt similar and were after more advanced detail/examples/implementation.
Perhaps the conference should indicate the level of the talk in future.
As some of the other comments said, Jenny is obviously passionate about the topic and made some good points, but - and I'm really sorry to say this - I felt "told off" and the points were over-laboured to the point I thought it was very condescending. I know there are points that needed to be made, but rather (than for example the closing keynote) than making us feel enabled to make a change it felt quite deflating.
My point is, that I understand the battles, but we still need debates, so take that passion and belief and tell people wordpress is good rather than tell us off for dissing it (I incidentally like Wordpress!); I mean as PHP devs we are mocked frequently but the "real" languages, but we stand strong and fight our corner but at the same time, we do laugh at ourselves.
Brilliant - well presented and thought out. My only why not 5 stars, perhaps was expecting a little bit more insight into PHP itself and how to solve memory issues, or maybe a bit of relevance into the how/if the tools work with cloud deployments.
But overall, fantastic, thanks.
A Eureka talk for me.
Although I had actually sub consciously started to make these sort of architectural decisions, it was good to back up those choices with an actual "yes, this is why we do that".
Although 5 stars, I also think the diagrams could be tidied up a bit.
Sorry, I really hate giving 1 stars, but I haven't left a talk mid way through before....
I thought it was un-engaging, presented badly (felt like a class room lecture). I don't have anything further to add than the other comments above.
Arrived late (as left another talk as wasn't enjoying) - wish I had got there earlier.
As I was late, was in the 2nd room and half the screen of the demo was missing (hence 3 not 4 stars) [well, half the left hand, which was the important bit!]
Good presenter, and some really useful tools (especially the debug bit). Thanks.
Best talk of the conference. Well presented, excellent content, and a few "Eureka moments".
I think switching between 'spec and 'unit might have been confusing for some, so maybe stick with one or the other, or psudeo code in the future?
Well delivered, hope the throat gets better soon!
Sorry to say I didn't enjoy this - as per Jenny's talk last year, I found the style aggressive and condescending and the style alienated a lot of people in the room (from where I was sitting anyway); I've not often seen that many people in a key note zone out and check phones/laptops.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't cover important items like this in keynotes and we need to raise awareness, but at the same time, I like keynotes to be more technology focused.
Really well presented, and really interesting - just wished it touched on some of the freely (or very cheaply) available tools to do this rather than a pet project. But the ideas were really interesting and given me some good things to research. Thanks.
Interesting to hear how it's all put together, and really well presented and delivered. Only 3 out of 5 because at the end of it, there wasn't much "useful or practical" information for the average developer (that you couldn't gleam from google), but it was still an interesting topic and good insight.
Really great talk, lots of good tips and reminders. Engaging talk, but as ? Marijus said in comment above, it really overlapped with the earlier talk (would have given this 5 stars otherwise). Yes, why did I attend if I had already been to the other talk - the other talks on the same time didn't appeal.
Good fun - especially the VIM automation.
If I'm being really critical, felt it ran out of steam mid way through, could have done with a few more real world examples rather than just talking about tools, other than that, really enjoyed it. Thanks.
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.
