This was quite extensive given the 1-hour time constraint, but Samantha provided good insight into how to get Varnish configured for a common WordPress site. I find there are a lot of gotchas that can bite you when setting up Varnish (i.e. almost nothing comes completely for free), but this is a good starting point for digging in and customizing a Varnish installation for your application.
Very informative and in-depth look at the possible future of PHP in regards to middleware. Very interesting to think about the possibility that frameworks will be less monolithic and more of a cohesive group of packages.
This talk was a great intro to PSR-7. I had issues with it prior to this talk but I think I'm sold and have... ideas.
As others have said, the history lesson was a bit long, some highlights would be good, but I would prefer the time be spent on some more insight into why some PSR-7 decisions were made, an architecture overview of a middleware based app (especially composed apps with multiple layers), and some examples of how to implement one.
Great talk. I was less interested in the performance part of Hack as opposed to the strictness, which I think PHP is sorely lacking.
Good presentation. A little long in the history, but good. Presentation was pretty good. Unfortunately, the phone line makes things less than ideal, but it was still good, clear, understandable.
It took a while to get to the performance part (and even then some people might miss it). If this were a normal conference talk, don't change a thing. For the DC4D on performance, a disclaimer that it *is* relevant to performance might have helped.
Great talk, and very clear presentation.
The ancient history of PHP sure brought back some bad memories. ;)
Wonderful content that made it so clear how important PSR-7 is.
Well delivered, no complaints :)
Would have been better if the audio wasn't over the phone though.
Great talk! Learned a lot in this hour -- could even be a longer talk ;-)
Very informative. I think the section on the history of PHP was a bit long. I think you should spend a little more time on explaining the thinking going behind the API. Overall great talk.
