Thank you for having an excuse to make stupid misstakes ;-)

Good presentation, I do like the humor used in the presentation as well as the content. I learned a lot, especially on how to lay out a plan when one wants to use 50 array functions to build a raffler ;)

Brilliant. Stupidity. Men, that was cool

Very entertaining talk. Although, I didn't like the spoiler about this thing called 'Rubik's cube'. ;)

Sorry I didn't have time to talk to you about me raising my hand and not think about a debugging moment. Hopefully some other time.

Really enjoyed this talk.

Really enjoyed this talk.

$success = array_merge($a, $b);

It was a really nice talk. Entertaining and informative. What maybe could be improved is explaining more what you learnt from analyzing your own thought process: what are your personal pitfalls/strengths and at what point did you detect them as such. I do plan to read one of the 'thinking' books you advised to read, so your talk definitely had impact :)

A very humorous tale and an intriguing idea. In addition to re-evaluating the way we approach problems, it also occurred to me that "stupid" challenges like these are also a great way to expand one's knowledge of the facilities PHP offers in its standard library.

Nice and inspiring talk.

This might have been the talk that stuck with me the most. Very interesting topic and I enjoyed the fresh way it was brought. Structurally, content-wise and presentation-wise an excellent talk and I am definitely going to dive into the topic more. Fun fact: had a campfire conversation with my two brothers explaining the question about the rectangles and lateral thinking and De Bono, etc. Awesome campfire conversation material, if you ask me :)

Enjoyed the talk. Found it very inspiring and I'm intended to look more into the subject - we already ordered some of the recommended books ^^

Well done!
