This is my star of the conference. I wasn't terribly interested in realtime when I walked in, but how that has changed! The second screen app not only provided entertainment, but it directly showed us the power of this technology in a way that slides and words alone never could. Oh and I will point out that I was braced for a sales pitch, but it never came. Top marks.
Great talk with good anecdotes to back up ideas. A little short on content perhaps, I would have loved to see examples of tools used to stress test. In defence of the speaker I suspect this talk was a late addition therefore prepared on short notice?
This keynote was a pleasure to sit for, delivered naturally and passionately.
On a subject where it is easy to preach or make "bad guys", Kayla skilfully managed to do neither.
I am now sitting here thinking about the talent that this community might be missing out on, purely due to ignorance.
Top marks from me, I will be carrying this with me for a long time.
Yet another great talk from @lornajane, delivered with personality and in a way that would suit a wide spectrum of skill levels.
In particular, Lorna did a brilliant job of explaining the intricacies of Scalar Type Hints, a notoriously misunderstood feature.
Lots of new and interesting information given in this talk, nice use of simple demo code.
Clear presentation by the speaker I thought.
Particularly interested by the concept of virtual packages in composer.
I would have loved a little more detail on the processes that were adopted, in particular how the "theme stub" is generated and used. There would be time for a little more detail since the talk was done in 30 mins.
Good info looking forward to Magento 2, makes me want to rip out my installs and start again
Jessica's presentation style is natural and upbeat, perfect for compelling the attention of the audience, even for the "hangover keynote".
Very thought provoking content, and just enough audience participation to keep my focus.
Top marks from me.
This was the talk I was waiting for when I first saw the schedule, and it didn't disappoint.
Rob's calm and well paced speaking style means that all information he puts across is absorbed.
The content of the talk was great, and I can't wait to start moving our applications over to ZF3 components.
I also agree that the future of our community is to start depending on abstractions (psr-7, container-interop) rather than concrete libraries, meaning we can switch frameworks at will, awesome!
