Once upon a time, I was called a hobbit at a conference and it served as my introduction to the greater PHP community.

This could be a keynote, basically detailing how the community has welcomed me and so many others, helping people with new jobs, mentoring, teaching and so much more.

Really like Matt's open style of sharing, making his approachable by the audience which earned a 4 rating. Though the talk was good, I felt it was more of an intro, or who's who, versus focusing on how a terrible situation unfolded and how Matt rebounded. Based on the abstract I was anticipating hearing an emptional blow-by-blow of what happened, how it was remedied, and what the speaker has done since then. Since I know the speaker, I think his story is amazing. But it was not "really" shared with the audience, therefore the talk without Matt's awesome delivery was really a 3.

Certainly, the who's who was nice, but was not what the talk promised.
