cool stuff!!

I enjoyed this very much. Very nice presentation and good slides. Excellent information.

Took a little bit to get going, but this was a great introduction to Guzzle.

An useful library. Would have liked to see a simpler example before jumping into the API client.

This talk came at the perfect time for me, since we saw examples of exactly what I need to implement next week.

With that said ...

I feel like we could have jumped in a little more quickly and used more time for code examples and less for an introduction to HTTP. If we're going to assume an audience who isn't familiar with the request/response cycle, we should be starting with a simpler Guzzle example.

I've been working with Guzzle for a while and was pleasantly surprised by all the things I learned in this one. It's come a long way in the past year and Jeremy did a good job of covering some of the more powerful bits and pieces.

While the "simpler example" criticism might fit, I'm not sure there *is* a simpler example that is still useful/applicable.

I wanted to see this talk at Midwest PHP but knew that I'd have another opportunity at Lonestar, and Jeremy didn't disappoint. This was an excellent talk that provided me with ample information to get up and running with Guzzle (with a bonus review/roadmap of HTTP), a tool which has been on my radar for awhile, but I haven't yet had the need to use since WordPress has its own HTTP request tools built in. As I'm continuing to explore other PHP frameworks and expand my own knowledge and skill set, I know that Guzzle will be an important tool to use. I'm looking forward to checking it out.
