Good intro into async programming with just enough code and theory! Really well balanced talk, speaker was really good in presenting too!

Really interesting topic and nice talk. Hope we see more from this in php in future.. Thanks!

As always, Samantha hit it out of the park. It wasn't what I expected, it was ever so much more. Great overview of where PHP is with regards to Async, What Async is, and where things are headed. I love that she gave a shout out to three of the people that are pushing the PHP Async envelope.

Though I didn't had the appropriate background to follow the topic 100%, the presentation was very good and Samantha has deep knowledge on that. Maybe a little more elaboration on what we gain with asynchronous programming would help. Are we just trying to take advantage of the idle time created by blocking I/O actions; Is there something more? Maybe parallelize jobs trying to split the delay expenienced by each one? When asynchronous can be slower than synchronous and why? I am not sure! :-)

Rather complex topic, but speaker did a fantastic job in transfering knowledge to the audience. Great performance.

Another great talk by Samantha. Very good examples!

Great talk about a very interesting topic! Will the slides be posted as well here? Would be nice to review the presentation one more time. Thanks!
