Good talk very clear and simple structure
Slight typo in code examples for __construct (apologies the proofreader in me could not get past it)

Really fun overview to using queuing systems.

Great talk - very informative and entertaining.
Enjoyed going into the detail on how to write code for workers and how they should be structured. I am about to start writing some queue workers, so this came at the right time.

This was a great talk and, imho, the best one for me at this conference. Not only was the content interesting and the slides and speaker engaging, but he actually showed REAL examples for everything from workers to how to get them working with queuing systems. Many other talks didn't do this - I'm a very visual learner so being able to see how everything worked together was great.

This talk really did it for me and unfortunately although I didn't get the chance to talk to Justin after the talk I hope this very positive review suffices. I've now got lots of interesting and cool stuff to have a play with in PHP.

this was a great talk!

presented brilliantly, with great examples and not too heavy for a Sunday after the night before.

really engaging talk on an interesting topic, now I have another thing to build, thanks Justin :p

Loved the honesty and showing what a bad worker looks like so that when looking at a good worker you know what to avoid. Great talk.

This talk can easy be used as example on what we need more at PHP conferences. Entertaining start, bad code/good code examples, what to use and what not to use, passion about the subject from the speaker. Thank you! Very well done!

Clear techniques explained, good amount of topic covered, no complaints from me!

Brilliantly clear, good examples and engaging. Definitely took away a lot of useful information, broken down into good chunks. Definitely one of my favourites from the conference.

I currently use Gearman & Supervisor quite heavily and this talk opened my eyes to other options. It also made me think about making my current workers more maintainable and more full featured.

Well delivered and good content

I agree with the comments made by Endijs Lisovskis

I've used workers before but have heavily relied on Framework code to handle the gritty details. This talk covered a lot more of the DIY approach and I appreciated that.

Superb talk - may have been my favourite of the conference. Clear, concise, great examples, and you were really engaging as a speaker. I took lots of notes which is always a good sign! Also recognised all the bad examples with "yep, my code looks like that currently", so a real impetus to go away and make things better :-)

Very good talk. Entertaining, informative with very clear code examples how (not) to do it.

Definitely one of my favorite talks from this conference.

Probably one of my favourite talks of the weekend

This was a great introduction into the technologies available and how to use them. If you're not using queues and workers and aren't sure why you should you *must* see this talk.

Even as someone who has experience in using these tools, the talk gave some new insights into the best practices and pitfalls, and examples of what you shouldn't do.

The talk is relatively fast paced and covers a lot, but Justin handles it perfectly and left time at the end for a good round of Q&A.

I didn't think I'd learn too much from this talk based on the description, but attended based on Justin's talk the day before, just because he's an engaging speaker and I figured he would keep me entertained. Didn't disappoint!

Very fun and informative!!!
Justin accepted questions at the end and gave good answers.
Excellent job!

Great talk and examples. Liked the entertaining presentation style, probably my favourite talk of the weekend. It worked very nicely with the pipeline architecture talk earlier.
