Very very interesting, how to test such a big system in just a few minutes.

No real info provided and a lot of publicity about his company

Nice talk on practical and pragmatic usage of behat. Parallel, good trick :-)

Too much company project specific problem and not that much general practices. Also big part is missing on how to test javascript that fast.

It was a very interesting experience about making tests more performant and more solid... but the talk itself could have been shorter and a bit more engaging.

Interesting topic and case study. I would've enjoyed more insights on adopted solutions, possibly shrinking the amount of time dedicated to problem statement. For instance, at an advanced talk, I expect everyone in the room to know what a race condition is, and also what the difference between unit and acceptance tests is. Thus, I wouldn't have dedicated much time and specific slides to such topics. With this said, I do not agree with other people saying that there was too much company promotion or that examples were too specific. IMHO real world scenarios are one of the best sources to learn from - let's remember we can always pick up books to learn generic concepts. Also having a clear understanding of context helps determining whether proposed solution could fit our situation or not. To me topic selection and talk quality were just right. A bit more of quantity (and depth) when it came to describing adopted solutions would've made it a winner.

Well explained and useful

2 things that made the talk very hard for me:

* had quite a few problems following this talk due to the speaker's accent
* maybe you can put some images in the slides as well, they were quite basic

Unfortunately I left the room feeling I got very less from this session.
