Nice talk. A good code review of a Symfony 2 project.

Just filled with way too much filler aaaaaah's. I counted about 6 378 of them. ;)

Really good talk, I like your controller as service approach, and liked your explaination of the 3 different scopes.

I also discovered the JMSDebuggingBindle, as well as the FOSRestBunle, I will use both for use.

Unfortunately, not enough time to cover all you wanted to!

Good mix of high-level and low-level concepts for Symfony2.

Really liked this talk, It should have lasted longer than one hour ! Especially liked the fact that Lukas explained dependency injection container scopes and how to correctly use them. This is really helpful in a lot of real life situations when playing with the request service of Symfony2.

Good talk.
I just wouldn't recommend to advertise the support of Controllers as Services, since it doesn't sound like a correct solution for problems architecture-wise. I tend to agree with Fabien on this.
Except that, it was a good talk, with a lot of features covered, some quickly - which probably caused some people to loose you -, and other ones in some depth.

Ah... those scopes, it gave us nightmares! Now, I understand it well, your explanation made it all clear. It was pretty fun to see you take a look at Fabien Potiencier some times when you were talking about your way to code your controllers as services!

Really enjoyed.

I must agree with "Jean-Marc Fontaine" criticism. I was so worried that I didn't have enough time to cover an sufficient amount of topics to really give a feel for Symfony2, that I was second guessing my approach all the time as I was trying to dynamically adjust the content to the level of knowledge of the audience. The first time I gave this talk I had 75mins and feedback was I went too fast. So my conclusion is that I better ask for 2 slots next time, to ensure that I can be a bit more relaxed.

Thank you for the honest feedback!
