Good talk but the code was very hard to read. Hopefully this is available for download. If its a lighting thing perhaps having 2 presentations, one dark and one light. That way depending on the environment you can just switch to one and not have to worry about adjustments.

Thanks for covering this topic.

As others have said and you recognized, the colors didn't work well with the projector. The bright green comments were hard to read as was the grey text on black background.

Also, there was some feedback on your mic which was distracting, but there probably wasn't a lot you could do about that.

You might want to repeat the audience members' questions so the audience can hear what you're responding to.

I think the talk might have benefited from more explanation of why using this style is beneficial. Perhaps showing some procedural code and how it could be adapted to an object-oriented environment.

I appreciated the coverage of the basics through the more advanced polymorphism concepts.

Thanks again for putting this together.

Lots of good explanation and metaphors for OOP. The code examples were easily understood and concise, if difficult to see on the projection screen (speaker realized and tried to remedy).

Good explanation and examples for a beginner audience new to OOP. Great introduction of terms. Some more time spent on the "why" for OOP might be beneficial for those who are still heavily entrenched in the procedural style.

The projector and lighting issues weren't your fault, but higher contrast slides with bolder fonts will help alleviate those issues.

Felt a bit rushed not sure if I didn't know OOP if it would have been benfical as I think I would have been lost. Though covering oop in an hour... hard as hell great job.

Fantastic overview of what OOP is. It helped me understand a bit deeper the concepts of polymorphism, specifically within PHP.

Very clear presentation! The code examples were easily understood and concise. Love the analogies references.
