Cal, inspirational as always, doing what he does so well - pumping up the audience ready for the day; and reminding us that we're all members of the PHP community; and when we work together as a team, we can achieve miracles (and put out fires).

As I already said to you personally, this story needs to be repeated indefinitely. New generations don't know the 'why' of PHP and it's community. Without your stories, people like me, cannot pass your message along.

Thank you and your father for doing this!

Really, really great talk about the PHP community. Didn't realise there was so much going on in the community, certainly encouraged me to go out and get involved more.

Inspiring and encouraging talk that has motivated me engage in even more community-oriented activities, helping me to understand why they are so important. Thanks Cal, myself and many others have benefited greatly from hearing about your experiences. Really set the tone for the rest of the event - PHPSC2015 was made even richer by having you open for it. Cheers!

Cal delivered a great message about how important community is, and how some problems can only be solved together. There was an interesting concoction of personal stories and experiences that I found very valuable.

I enjoyed the deep dive into the pillars of what make a good community. I would have preferred a more general "Find your role models" message than a "Here's the prestige" pin up. I know of and follow each and every name he presented and wholly agree on how awesome they are, but I think the PHP community does need be careful not create a band of worshipped untouchable elites. There are so many amazing (but quiet) people out there that might just be your role model, go find them.

I think the message to make the effort and engage in the hallway track really sunk in. I personally spoke to over a dozen PHPers whom I'd never met before, and people seemed a lot more approachable than at other conferences I've been to. Overall it was a great delivery from Cal and an excellent keynote.

My first talk, at my first presentation, and when Cal started I was a little cautious about where he was going. But I was pleasantly surprised and entertained at his talk. Brilliant :)

What a presentation. As a beginning speaker watching Cal on stage was such an inspiration by itself. Add a dose of powerful motivation on top of that, and it's just ACE. 10/10 would watch again, same talk even.

The talk was the highlight of the conference for me. I've only begun to truly appreciate the value that lies in the community over the last 5 years, and everything which Cal said rang true for me. It definitely showed how valuable and how meaningful being a part of something much larger than yourself can be, and the rewards which it can bring to you, sometimes just by being a part of it.

As talks go, this was a great talk to open a conference with. To see him talk so passionately about the PHP community has only re-enforced the fact that I want to be part of the community and get involved even more.
