All in all the talk was really nice.
I think that you can still improve it by for example trying to show the example first and then the theory that get extracted from it. Another thing could be to use a common subject throughout the talk for the example. That might make the example easier to follow. For example you should try to use the subject of your intro as a base for all the examples.

Amazing talk!

I very much liked that fact that you had examples to back up all the theory. And it was nice to see that code snippets used PHP 7 features :-)

Great talk about best ORM practices and isolation of the application business models.
The talk was guided by plenty of comprehensive examples.

Doctrine is no prerequisite to follow this talk. You can easily port these best practices to your own DAL workflow.

I liked the pace of the presentation. Not too fast and easy to absorb the info.
Also the concept of migration abstraction is always present throughout the talk.

A reference to a real fw integration would have been nice to fully grasp the benefits of Baleen as a unifying migration platform.

A great talk that went a bit beyond just Doctrine to include some general good practices and tips applicable across several layers of an application.

I would have enjoyed a bit more depth on the Doctrine-specific material, but the balance you found was good for a general audience. It didn't make the talk any less interesting either.

I very much liked the talk and the passion for the project you were showing.
Some more code examples and/or demo's earlier on in the talk would have been nice.

I'll keep an eye on how Baleen will evolve.

Nice to see migrations discussed on this way and I'll definitely explore
