No real content, just "our community is awesome! Go us!" Would be better if repositioned as "how to use community to help you get started with PHP", or "how to get more involved in the PHP community", maybe?

No real content. It would have been better to showcase examples of projects made by strong communities compared with projects made with no community or weak community support

Community needs to be discussed. But the format was not useful for people who do not already agree with everything. I didn't grasp the purpose of the talk. The speaker was quite monotonous.

I enjoyed the talk and thought speaker did a good job of discussing what the benefits are of getting more active in the community and how to do that.

I really enjoyed seeing the speaker's passion for community. An example of how to improve could be expanding the content to showcase examples of successful community projects and groups in a "case study" format. Also, the speaker should work on projecting his voice, since no microphone was used, but the room was small enough that this did not hurt the presentation.

In all, a great topic and a good presentation that could be an excellent presentation with these few minor changes.

I enjoyed the talk. It seems to me like the chatter before the actual talk was a perfect example of what the talk was meant to illustrate. I thought "Mr. January" did a great job of explaining what the benefits from a community gives you, but maybe he was preaching to choir. This would be an awesome talk for some intro to web development students. Also, next time, bring some blue elephants to hand out :-) I'd still be willing to throw in for a kickstarter to put in an order. No idea on logistics of distribution but we're smart people, we'll find a way.

Agree with the other commenters that this talk, while good, was targetted at an audience that already agrees with the speaker. The real challenge will be in delivering it to people who don't agree.
