Significant performance improvements, generators, finally statement, the bundled opcache, variadics, constant scalar expressions and many other new and cool things are available in PHP 5.5 and in the upcoming 5.6 release. But what does it all mean? What are we building with our cool toys?

Inspiring. Some good info about the future of PHP and then some best practices about how to be a good developer (and person).

I have liked more the motivational part, personally I think that this kind of stuff fits better for a keynote (and also I can't take too much implementation details before the first coffee break )

an inspiring talk

Excellent keynote, a little bit of technical, little bit of philosophical.

I think your talk hit the spot perfectly!

You had it all:
- upcoming improvements
- useful know-hows (deploy with realpath switch - so simple and yet so good)
- philosophical note

Very inspirational! Thank you! =D

many good news and one life lesson learned

Nice mix of everything in the talk, as keynote should be

Always inspiring; lesson learned: "work on something that matters"

Thanks for the tip about the deploy and the nginx real path! It was worth the whole keynote for me.

The idea of millions of people about to get in the market with a smartphone and no desktop at all changed my idea of the future.

Always a pleasure to get the inside track, some useful pragmatic discussion around deploys. Get to get reinforcement for current practice and what's round the corner, good way to open the gig.
