Look beyond PHP

Even if PHP is by far the most popular language to develop websites, it's not the only one. What can we learn from Java, Python, and Ruby? Which best practices and tools can we borrow and/or adapt from these languages? Open-Source, cross-pollination and sharing are the keys to open your mind and benefit from the work of other communities.

This talk introduced interesting tools and technologies in other languages than PHP. It was nice to see tools like Jenkins, Sonar Source, Apache Solr, Elastica, Spring... introduced by Fabien.

Well-rounded talk on what to look for on the horizon of web dev. I liked the part where Fabien discussed the influence of other libraries on many of the newest PHP libraries. It was also nice to hear a personal insight into how he likes to visit area bookstores when attending conferences :)

Fabulous talk, laid a nice groundwork for how to really advance as a PHP developer (and how to not to be so stuck on a single language). Loved the statement that being a web developer is more about passion than it is about doing a job.

As several of the commenters have stated thus far, it was a very inspiring talk that I feel really represented the open source spirit of sharing for improvement without discrimination.

Good talk. It would be great to point to have pointed to some other books that most people consider as requirements.
I could easily point some, like PoEAA, GoF and Clean Code.
Maybe it's a suggestion for the next time you give this talk. =)

This topic or style of talk is necessary at every topic. It was truly a guide of resources people should be using or researching. I echo the statements from above: Inspiring!
