Particularly liked the roundup of different types of Static Analysis tools and examples at the start. Couple of tools that were new to me there.

Great insight into how Static Analysis tools work and can be used to help applications in different ways

very important topic well covered

I couldn't tell this was Ryan's first talk - he seemed very comfortable and it was a great presentation. I've been an active user of phpstan for over a year now and it's a default package to install on all my projects. It was an interesting insight into the internals of parsers and lexifiers, but personally I would have liked to see a bit more on the practicalities of static analysis, particularly in the Laravel ecosyasem where a fair amount of 'magic' going on that tools have to deal with.

I really enjoyed this talk. Interesting to learn how these work under the hood. Ryan seemed very relaxed and informed while giving the talk, so for a first talk it was especially impressive

Great effort from a first-time speaker, with useful insights and lots of things to think about, mostly about how to extend static analysis on existing projects.
