I'll admit, I came in with some pre-conceived notions. First of all, I've done about 1/6th of a site in Jekyll and maybe 1/2 a site in Sculpin--so by industry standards that makes me an expert in the field. I couldn't imagine what Grav could have possibly been bringing to the space, especially if it isn't a true "push" CMS.

I certainly didn't expect what I saw--very polished, thought out, very applicable, and the CMS was great too! ;-) The Admin plugin truly sets it apart for actual real-world applications, while the caching allows it to reach nearly static file speeds. Very impressed and ready to try working on that personal site again.

You have again taught me something new. Great work Andrew!

You had me at "no database required".

Great talk, Andrew! I really enjoy Grav and have deployed two sites with it, and will be doing another within the next month or two likely.

The intro to Grav was nice as some of the things it does can be a little too "magical" at first. I think seeing the overview of the system would help users get into it (which is what we need)!

Thank you for the talk, Andrew! I appreciated it and thought it was a good overview of the system.

I really appreciated this presentation on Grav. I just finished my first website using Grav, and I liked how this was the perfect overview whether just getting started or already a little familiar with it. How you first explained things, and then went in and showed how to code everything was really helpful. I was getting stuck on figuring out how to get the blog plugin working, but after your talk I understand it much better and am looking forward to giving it a try.
