Great presentation. Wish my boss was here to watch.

Fantastic presentation Patrick! I like that you started from square one and went all the way through templating and frameworks. Also, great job dealing with the technical difficulties :-)

A good overview of using advanced PHP concepts and building with composer with many great examples. One small suggestion would be to have the slides available for attendees ahead of time so they would be easier to read during the talk, but having the slides afterwards was also nice.

Good presentation, and great topic. I wish there had been a couple more demonstrations as opposed to just slides

A good overview of things from start to finish. I wish there were some deeper dives into a few topics but I appreciate how hard it is to cover that much territory. Some live demonstrations would have been great as well.

Great presentation. Got a lot out of it.

Enjoyed this talk, covered a great a deal of information in a very short amount of time.

A lot to cover in 3 hours. It would be nice to have an electronic handout for people with computers and other devices to download and take notes with. I spent much of my time frantically copying slides on paper so I could annotate it. Having the code in front of me would make me able to listen more and write less.

Enjoyed this; for me was a solid mix of review and some new things to try. However, I thought the jump to classes was too abrupt and wanted an intermediate step to learn to think of scripts as software before talking about improving how that software is developed.

This talk made me want to run home and experiment with many mentioned tools. The breadth of topics was inclusive to a wide range of skill levels. Very interesting.

Patrick did an excellent job pacing his presentation to fit the time constraints while also leaving room for questions. He was also very patient with questions from audience members of varying skill levels. While the information covered was good, I think it could be made better in the future reformatting some of the information into an interactive session, for example leading the audience step by step through logging and testing a sample app. If possible it would be great to have the audience code along on their own computers - mimicry is a great way to begin!

I am new to PHP although I have been programming for over 30 years. This gave a really nice over view for structuring projects and code sets
