Support for generics is high up many PHP developers’ wish lists. This talk is a deep dive into generics, their benefits and how, with existing tools, we can get the power of generics today

Really well explained, with a good context and pragmatism about the ecosystems involved

Really good talk and explanation!

Really nice explanation of what’s available wrt generics and the faking of support in the language.

Great talk, and made a pretty convincing case that this should be part of PHP in some way. For now it seems a little out of reach, but hopefully support will come eventually. Here's hoping at a future conference you'll be able to tell us how everyone has adopted generics!

Very interesting and full of practical advise

Very well structured talk. An interesting topic presented in a very nice way. Well done!

Great talk which takes a deep dive into generics, what they are, and why you (may) use them.

Excellent explanation. Was really useful

Interesting topic brilliantly delivered

So much to take away from this talk - really interesting ideas presented in a fantastic format.

Superb. Clearly presented with good advice AND showed me that there's no point in using this stuff until it's properly released as part of the language, potentially saving me hours of my time! 10/10. Would recommend. I hope to see more talks from Dave in the future.

This is simply BRILLIANT! Well deserving of the five stars. The way you built the talk up with expectation management and then followed through with those expectations was great. You talked in a very clear way that was easy to follow. I love how you showed different ways to achieve it in PHP, and built your way into the way you'd recommend today, and how you ended up with your thoughts. A thought provoking talk, not only teaching generics - But also how to use them today.

An excellent talk from a confident speaker; while I am not sure of some of the conclusions, Dave put forward a good argument for leaning on static analysis instead of just the language.

I can't really say it any beter then Michelle already did. Brilliant!
