Good talk that goes very rapidly from introducing BDD to diving into very specific Behat tips. It was a clear progression and delivered well.

I'm not sure it's worth covering Behat 2 when it's practically end of life, but can see how some of the tips for 2 might be useful to the audience.

Great talk. It was interesting to see some of the differences in 2 vs 3. Solid presentation.
Thanks for the discussion after the talk as well!

I really appreciated the structure: progressing from a high level discussion of what BDD is and how to think about doing it well, and then touching on a variety of practical examples of complicated things that people are likely to need and want to do in their day-to-day use of Behat. Jessica knows her stuff and delivers that knowledge clearly and crisply.

I liked this talk. I'm not entirely sure what I think about the introduction. It was a good, quick introduction to Behat, but if the talk is aimed at people who have already used Behat for a while (which is what I expected based on the title and description), they probably do not need that much of an intro. If one is new to Behat on the other hand, I'd guess that the intro is not enough to allow the rest of the talk to not go over the attendees head. Nevertheless, as I said, I enjoyed this talk.

I enjoyed this talk, well structured and presented. The BDD over view really set the stage for the talk on Behat.
