Silex Anatomy

The talk was missing the structure I hoped for. Kudo's for the live coding/configuring, but I didn't get the overview I would have liked.

same feeling here, no structured talk, but still some stuff to think about

Nice overview of how the different Symfony components work together and how they can be used separately to create a simple framework.

Very nice to see more than just an introduction of Silex and Symfony Components. Going deeper into it is an excellent idea. Information was well presented. Oh, and killer name for a framework ;)

This talk felt less like an introduction and more like a case study of the building of Silex (and a side framework Yolo). Approaching the talk from that angle makes it clear that the talk was incredible.

Giving a live coding talk is always difficult, but Igor made it look easy. Awesome job!

I expected a talk where Silex was taken apart into different Symfony components and the talk was exactly that. I was interested in the general structure of microframeworks and the talk showed a good part of it. However, Igor jumped a bit from one topic onto the other, making it quite hard to follow. Given the difficulties of a live demo, it's four thumbs up.

Igor managed to show case a lot of architecture details in real code while live coding a real application. This talk managed to give one a real idea of how one can assemble applications through the recombination of single purpose libraries.

I liked the real code examples, that gave a good idea how you can use this.

Nice live coding session.

The live coding was nice (and went without a real hitch - kudos for that), but I also felt a bit lost at times trying to follow. I would have really liked to get a better look at the way Silex itself handles things (instead of side tracking to Yolo). What you told about the components themselves did make a lot of sense though, and was quite familiar (since I've been using Symfony2).

Great job at the live coding. Gave a very valuable insight into how the individual components work together . Do think that it could've been a bit more structured.

Good presentation, liked the format. Could use a bit more structure and depth, but Igor did well with a loose structure and an uncooperative mic.

I'm with most of the people above: some extra words or a guideline on a slide could've given a kind of index on what would be treated.
Regarding the content I was very pleased that this was actually more on the internals. I've seen enough 'You should just put this here and this there and see it works'-talks. I wanted to know how it works. That's what I've been looking for and I didn't get disappointed :-)

Interesting but not what I expected as a regular silex user. Also I feel that this talk went with little preparation, live coding is nice but some slides to guide the audience and bring structure to the talk would have been nice.

Really nice talk overall.

You don't need many slides but it would be beneficial to both you and your audience to visualise in one diagram what you'll be speaking about and how different components are working together. Jumping from one to another screen makes it harder to follow, especially if you are sitting far away from the presentation.

This talk was not what I expected when I read the summary. I expected a wider and more in depth talk on Silex.

Live coding is nice, but some slides with some code explained step-by-step would have been more clarifying. It felt that this talk was poorly preparated.

Not quite what I expected. I hoped for a closer look at Silex, but got to know Yolo instead. The part on the Symfony2 components was good (as expected), but could have dug a little deeper, too.

With a good knowledge about symfony/silex and the DI service container the talk gave me a new view on how frameworks are designed. The important part is, to find a way between customization and user friendliness.

Liked the hands on introduction to Symfony components with Yolo. Perhaps a bit more info on Silex and its benefits vs. using the full Symfony framework.
