Very well structured talk, great presentation. Learned many new things, very enthousiastic about running some of these tools on our own codebase! Curious if we are doing better than Wordpress ;)

Good surface touch on the metrics subject. Presentation excellent as usual

Well prepared and executed presentation showing usable tools to measure your code quality and see if you are moving in the right direction over time.

Interesting talk on QA in PHP with clear explanations on different metrics like CC, NPATH and CRAP.
On the question whether the presented data could be shared, an alternative to the commercial Splunk might be the open source project Logstash: http://logstash.net/

Really interesting talk, i didn't have a clue some of these things existed before the talk, and afterwards i really wanted to run some analysis tools on the systems we are using to see how they score. (and how we can improve them)

Excellent explanation of metrics, excellent presentation. The live demo portion of the talk shouldn't have worked but did. Handled questions from the audience very well. The only thing I would have liked to see more of was pre-made examples of framework comparisons (static vs non-static methods, number of classes that implement interfaces vs those that don't, etc) and possibly some refactorings that might accompany metrics. Just wanted a little more depth in there. Still, hard to fault the talk for wanting more of it.

Before I attended this talk I knew what will it be about (I have checked out slides from one of your previous conference). Even taking that into consideration, I went to listen and I do not regret. I did not pick up new things, but it was entertaining. One sentence you said at the end deserves slide on it's own. You said (and i rephrase it now): no matter how much we focus our attention to Design Patterns, Quality metrics, if code does not deliver business requirements, that's bad code. That's something we all need to keep in mind and find right balance.
Thanks!

Nice explanation of some of the available metrics for PHP code. Gave me some inspiration!
