Nice practical introduction to Clojure.
After that presentation im pretty sure, that Rowan is the one of the best speakers I ever saw. Perfectly prepared, lot of content, little humour. Only one "IT Managment" talk what I went to, and totally not regret it.
Practically, "Queues 101". One of the best slides theme I ever saw. Great content and explanations. -0.5 for demo problems.
Great reference for those, who thinks, that NoSQL === MongoDB. But Joe tried to put to many info into the slides considering timeslot. Which also can be a reason for lack of examples. And also, little info about NewSQL movement would be nice IMHO - just mention.
I planed to gave 3/5 rating, but let it be 3.75, because I was a little afraid, that talk will be Doctrine2 based, but it wasn't, which is good in that case :)
If Thijs' presentation could be called "Scalling webapps 101", this presentation should be 201. Great examples, great talking, great slides.
I don't like presentations, where we have just bulletpoints, and speaker reads from the slides. I went out in the middle of presentation. +2 for topic, and that would be all.
Quick introduction to basic methods for scalability - done just right. Minus - too much PHP (and that said by PHP developer)- it wasn't PHP track ;)
Thanks for the (great) reviews. We will take all your remarks into account for the next time we to this presentation. (see, even WE are learning from this! :))
Good presentation. Finally somebody is moving the topic of needed mentoring in the role of Project Manager.
