Very informative, esp the Q+A round

Great talk, the content was fresh and relevant to my needs, and the delivery was clear and entertaining.

I will be looking into adopting this in some way soon.

Really useful hands on experience sharing. Quite a lot was covered and it will need some going back and digesting as I will definitely find this material useful at some point in the near future.

Very informative, I've not done much with kubernetes so was great to see what it can do. The live-style demos worked really well.

Great talk with comprehensive examples. I'm really inspired and I'm going to use suggested stack in my private projects.

This was a truly fantastic talk. The subject matter was delivered knowledgeably, informatively, clearly and at just the right pace.

I already have an existing Docker setup and had previously tried Kubernetes to manage it, however this did not go so well. You have definitely taught me that it can be easy and have inspired me to have another go at it!

A good complementary talk to the docker introduction made in the other talk on this conference. Lots of valuable advice based on Billie's real life experience from working with the Home Office.

I made many things with docker, but never really try kubernetes. Thank you for introducing it to me.

Very well presented and informative - I think one of the most technical talks I went to. Loved the fact you had pre-recorded the command line sequence instead of relying on "luck" during a live-demo: although it could have done with a bit of editing to save "dead time" where you were waiting for it to catch up. Oh, and the continual references to Secret Squirrel stuff made me laugh (especially since I've recently been watching Harvey Birdman with the Secret Squirrel episode). I'm still not sure why I should use Docker instead of Vagrant, but I suspect this talk was designed for people with a bit of experience of Docker.
All in all, an excellent talk!

Hands down the best talk I went to. Well presented, held my attention, and an interesting topic.

I'd say that this talk was one of the highlights of this year's PHP UK and has changed my answer to the question of 'is docker ready for production yet' from a no to a maybe.

Great talk, didn't spend too long on the 'Intro to Docker' portion of the talk which I appreciated. The 'live' demos worked well (although it did feel like cheating a bit!) and the explanation of Kubernetes was easy to follow and clear. Already looking for an excuse to start using it myself!

The talk was in three parts. I'd have preferred focus in the second.
