Talk comments

While very speedy, I thought I got the gist of the benefits of PHPStorm. Plus, it was a good laugh each time the boxes started taking over Gareth's screen. An engaging presentation.

There was some good advice in terms of good practices. I felt this links nicely with a talk on FIG from last year for getting code up to a good standard (both of which I shall refer to heavily for my next project I think). I think it would be improved by giving a couple of in depth code examples, similar to what James said.

Really enjoyed the talk. Interesting and engaging speaker.

A good overview and taster of PHPStorm and also another dev's workflow.

I was sure this was going to spark an IDE war, but surprisingly not. I think focusing more on less features might've done this better, as it was quite a whirlwind of a gazillion features, none of them really sank in as memorable. I can't help thinking perhaps picking 3/4 really cool features and focusing on JUST exploring those would've done better, with a bit at the end listing the other features (without going into detail) - just wetting the appetite really, rather than being a tutorial! Cheers Gareth.

Good overall talk. I think perhaps some code examples would've helped describe better. Half the talk was about the PSRs, I think less of the PSRs and more detail on the refactoring topics would've been better. Overall really good advice though, thanks Michael :)
