Echoing some of the comments on here, I think this would be great talk if you knew a little about AngularJS to begin with. I went to this not 100% sure what Angular even was. I couldn't really relate to it either, which made it difficult to take much away.
That said, Nate was a great speaker, and clearly understood the subject. Maybe my bad for choosing this talk.
I was 5 minutes late to attend this so I couldn't fit in the room. People were overcrowding around the corner and I could hardly hear the speaker...
On the plus side, 4 of my work colleagues attended, and said it was amazing. So I guess I shall watch the recording once it's uploaded :)
As James Shaw highlighted, a bit more time on where/how to use OPcache might have been more beneficial?
We already use OPCache with PHP 5.5 so I was hoping to see some configuration options or maybe some optimisation tips. What the talk covered was instead, a rather interesting and detailed explanation about how it all works, rather than any configuration/optimisation.
Not sure what I can take away from this talk.
Great speaker, and very detailed explanation of how it all works with great accompanying slides.
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! :):)
