Good stuff to help convince colleagues. I wouldn't have minded a bit faster pace.

Great talk, personally I would have liked a little less re-iteration of points and more examples and awesome techniques you can use fp for. Also if you increase the pase you wouldnt have to skip part

A lot of how and what, but the point of why was skipped. I'd have liked to see much more on choosing when to use fp and for what kind of real world problems encountered often by php developers.

A great talk.

David did a great job of introducing functional programming. We covered recursion, function composition and even some pattern matching. It's unusual to see Erlang being used at a php conference but it made grasping these concept simple.

Thank you David.

Interesting talk

Bit strange talk, not really php relevant. There were some hack ways to kinda make it work, but it was mostly about Erlang. I've had some experience with functional languages, but I'm not sure what this talk was about.

Not bad, but maybe a little light on why you would want to do this...

For someone deep in the OO world, this talk is a good introduction to all the things functional programming is about.
Although I'm sure I would have to revisit this subject until I know how and where to apply these principles.

The speaker was very calm and easy to listen to.

I particulary liked that quote: "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world"

Nice talk to gain some basic insight about the functional world outside OOP. I agree that the pace could be increased.
