I work on a small team where I'm the only developer. Sometimes I have to deal with server related stuff if my boss (who usually handles that stuff) is unavailable. This talk makes me feel a little more confident about what I'm doing. :)
The speaker went through things rather fast. Granted, he did get a late start due to technical difficulties. Also, the slides had a lot of text on them ... some were a bit overwhelming.
I thought the talk would be more about tweaks and configuration settings but it seemed to be more about server setups. Maybe I'm just too new to Magento to understand the ins and outs of the software.
The real world examples made it easy to relate her ideas to things that I encounter where I work. While I did get a few take-aways, I was hoping a bit for a few more concrete ideas for certain situations. But I know that no 2 projects are the same ... so that's not worth dropping my rating a star.
I love Eryn as a speaker. She's full of energy, and she has a way of injecting humor into things without taking it too far.
As a female developer with anxiety issues and imposter syndrome ... this talk made me feel less alone. You also opened my eyes to the hidden minorities, which I had never really thought of before ... it's not just women and people of color who encounter crappy situations.
I have always had trouble with estimates. This talk gave me some new ways to tackle them that I can hopefully share with my team (and the rest of the company). I am definitely going to use the term SWAGs in the future. :)
A lot of good information that has me more interested in trying out php 7 sooner rather than later. I might just upgrade my VPS to it when I get home from the conference (if it's available) so I can test it out.
Great overview of how to approach load testing. I would have liked to hear more information about how to actually write the scripts for the testing an application, but with the limited amount of time I can see why it wasn't included.
I was hoping to learn more about OPCache since I've been having issues with it on some of our client sites. But the information about memcached was good ... we've been thinking about using it on our servers but aren't sure where to start.
I enjoyed hearing about how you got involved in open source. You gave me some ideas as to how I can get involved. I never thought about writing blog posts as contributing. Or helping people with bug reports/issues. Those are things that I can do to help the community. :)
I loved that you talked about how you do things in your daily life and didn't just repeat what others have said. I need to incorporate the "one mindful breath" into my day at work to calm down when things don't go well.
This was a very good overview of OAuth. I wish I had heard this talk before I embarked on a recent project integrating with Salesforce. I have a better understanding of what I did (or stumbled through) after this talk.
The talk was easy to follow and full of good information. I fight with our designers on several of the points (contrast between text on top of images being the biggest issue), so I'm hoping if I share the information from this talk with them, they will finally "get it".
Despite the tech issues you ran into at the start of the talk, you kept a cool head and even joked about it. I love how you use stories to get your points across. It made me realize that even though I work on pretty straightforward sites, there are still things that I can do to to make users' experiences suck less. :)
