the presentation was all show and it was hard to learn anything from it - although the info given was probably very interesting, due to the many laughs and fast way of presenting it, I surely missed a lot...
maybe next time less show and more relaxed explaining of the topics?
Great talk, Erika is highly motivated and you can see that by hearing/seeing her speak. Also liked the recorded demo - clever, and this way the talk will (almost) never fail due to bad luck.
Too bad there are not more talks by her at this conference, she is one the best speakers at this years Conference in my opinion.
Almost the best talk of the day...only the one about PHP7 was better...but I can't wait to learn and work with Drupal 8. Both presenters did an excellent job and were really passionate (you could see and hear that). Hope to see them both at next year's conference again!
THE best talk of the day. Great content and also nice to see and hear the speaker, he is passionate and you can tell that! Only minus was the way he handled the PHP6 question...although it has been told over and over probably, not everyone knows all the info...there are no wrong questions ?! Anyway, can't wait to play with PHP 7 and will need to learn then new features as soon as possible of course to becoming a better PHP programmer.
maybe I was to good informed, but I haven't heard that much new things in this talk. Had hoped to learn more about HTTP/2 and SPDY but about 80% of the talk was about IPv6 and SSL. Had better listened to a more interesting talk...anyway. The info and speaker were allright. Only almost no new content for me unfortunately.
A bit disappointing, had expected a great talk but the talk in general was kind of 'down', sadly told, sometimes with humor but most of the time on a negative side... But the general message should be clear: respect people and especially appreciate the work that some people do, and don't react in a negative way on things you would have done otherwise or features you are missing in the software. You can give advice on what to do better or what to add, and on the same time give the creator a good feeling...it should not all be negative.
excellent talk, didn't know Derick before, but was really interested in the subject itself. Although it was a bit chaotic in my opinion I really liked the information provided. Ways to have an even better presentation next time: make a nice agenda and have a 'theme' (i was missing 'de rode draad' and I experienced it a bit chaotic). Also focus on one part of the different functionalities of the tool (Xdebug) might be a better idea, then you can go deeper and don't need to spent time on all other functionalities and use cases the tool has.
did provide exactly what it promised from the title given: introduction into compilers etc. Great overview and well presented. Nothing to add. Hope to see some nice deep dive next year about one of the subjects mentioned during this year's talk.
had expected more inside information actually, but a nice presentation after all. I heard about Hack in the past, but didn't know what it was all about before this talk. Now I have a good understanding about the basics of what Hack is and can do.
THE talk of the day for me. I was frustrated in the past quite often when I looked back at how much time it took me to find a solution to a problem, but I also knew that you need to do it yourself to really learn from it. Maybe someone else had solved the problem in 5 minutes, but then I would not have learned the same thing. The presenter made sure that you learned why debugging is important for everyone, and you should in theory never give up on finding a solution to your problem, although sometimes working around a problem (by using a workaround) is the only solution as the customer is paying you and can't wait any longer to get a working situation.
The presentation was well presented, had all the parts of an excellent presentation: good overview, talk at the right speed, not forget to tell important things at the end of the presentation because the time is up, and also have time for questions from the public. I also liked the example the presenter gave from his own experience when he did make a mistake which lead to some serious problems, but in the end it was all fixed and he learned from the experience.
I already found debugging great as I love solving 'puzzles' but this presentation gave me even more confidence that I am on the right path and not wasting my time and not going for the quick solution: you need to understand WHY a solution works, not just google it and use it in your code.
Only thing I did not like that much were the 'funny' gifs that were between some of the slides. It is a matter of taste, and I personally wouldn't have used them, but it is the information you gave that was the most important too me.
not my piece of cake, a bit to philosophical in my opinion and not the presentation that i 'needed' after lunch. I did not fall asleep but it didn't take a lot more... The presentation itself was good, nice slides and a theme that was leading to something - and not a puzzle like some presentations are unfortunately.
