I noticed a lot of people are saying it felt rushed. Which is fair, I think that 3 frameworks in the time slot is quite a lot. I think I'll probably change the talk, so there is a little less about Silex and trim some fat off the introductions so we can go into a bit more detail with AngularJs - so people with a little more experience get something out of it.
If this talk was in the form of a 3 hour tutorial so we could focus a bit more diving deeper into each of the technologies, and obviously doing some awesome hands on coding, do you think you'd be interested in coming?
Negative or positive, thank you for your feedback, this stuff is absolute gold. Most of all I want to thank all of you for making this conference such a wonderful experience, and it's nice to hear some of you are playing with these technologies, especially for the first time. There's nothing more exciting as a speaker than to hear someone has listened to your talk and is now using something you mentioned.
I hope you enjoyed a talk, and thank you for coming!
Here's a link to the demo code https://github.com/PurpleBooth/flappy-endpoint, and to prove we practice what we preach here's the libraries that UK Home Office open sources, https://ukhomeoffice.github.io/. You can find some cool containers in there.

I've been doing lots of work with Elastic Search recently which uses some of these techniques, however I've never had a peak inside the black box before. Interesting and at just the right level for me.
I think I probably want to learn more about this now!
Another great keynote, it was interesting to see the hard challenges that you face as a large project runner. It was interesting to get the diplomatic tips and how to keep people engaged with the project, and how that fits in with the wider conversation we're having in the community about what constitutes acceptable behaviour.
My only criticism is that it felt like there wasn't a real structure to the talk, it felt more like a stream of consciousness list, sometimes I think that works really well, this time I feel it worked less well.

I struggled with how to rate this. I think this is a pretty common topic for a keynote and talks generally, and I think that this variant was pretty well delivered, but not the best I've ever seen.
I think that there could have been a bit more focus on the benefits of giving 15min, rather than where you can spend it, and I feel it needed an original twist.
