Thanks everyone for the constructive feedback, I sincerely appreciate it!
This talk was good to get familiarized with Magento. It's weird and intriguing to hear people love Magento because they have so many options but also have a bad reputation in regards to performance.
Understanding the architectural needs makes it more sense why to use Magento into bigger e-commerce challenges.
Bringing this message was a tough task, but it was given in a natural, honest way. Job well done.
Tips for improvement:
- keep an eye on time
- don't get seduced to get into discussions that derail your talk (leave them for after)
Thanks for the interesting talk. Getting ready to finally dig into our codebase and start writing unit tests for our existing code, one unit at a time ;-)
Hope to catch some more interesting talks this january at your conference.
Good job! As mentioned before, a tip of the hat for adapting to the interest of your audience at last last minute, much appreciated.
It was obvious you put a lot of effort into researching the competition and comparing them to your solution, Magento. Don't let a comment from the audience doubt your research, until you know what their opinion is based on.
Aw, forgot to rate and can't alter it :(
Added phpunit to my main project this morning as a result of your talk yesterday. Lots of messy code with large functions. Thanks!
I only saw the end of the talk, but the end was very good.
I feel like you should do a training with the slides about testing legacy code.
You piqued my interest into Reflection Classes and their use in unit testing.
I liked that you were always able to put back any question into context and that you were never falling into the trap "My solution is the best and all the other are crap".
You also manage to adapt to your audience on the go which ended up in a very interactive talk.
I didn't know much of Magento. Now I have a clear view when to start with it and when not. Gabriel known his subject very well. It was his first talk, he can improve his technique and I'm confident that we soon will see him again on stage ;-) Well done Gabriel.
It was good to hear about unit testing again. I used to think about unit testing for new projects, but now I have seen how easy it can be to unit test legacy code. The sample code was very well chosen, it demonstrate very well was @DrangonBe wanted to explain.
