A really good talk, good examples and interesting presentation. Too many pauses.

good talk and presentation, bit slow tempo

Great talk in every way, I'll be checking out the DD book, many thanks to Kat and the organisers.

Really nice talk Sam.

Clearly showed how the way we develop affects the structure of our classes, by traditional methods, with unit testing, with TDD and with BDD.
I would like a bit of a better pace maybe and be a bit clearer at the end of the sentence at times. And spice the slides a bit more, though I understand there was a time limitation.

Really important point that our app requires the details from stakeholders and business analysts to make sense, use the appropriate terminology and be to the point without excessive/unnecessary methods.

Really good job there!

Forgot that part.

1. Completely agree with removing the Controller from a class name if it exists under the controllers directory and has the relevant namespace
2. Will definitely try the approach of having test files alongside the production files.

For starters I also fully agree with Andy Gale :D

Great talk Kat! Presentation of a modern architecture based on academic research.
Devs many times skip the understanding of why you do something and just go with it. If we know why, we become better and can change it to our needs.

Generally good pace, great slides, going through the basics to the advance to help people of all levels.
Would still like some more details on some of the aspects of the DDD main keys that help form the final architecture.

Many kudos for this and thank you!

A succinct talk covering the various layers and purposes of testing and how they help to focus your code writing.
Even though I have extensively used behat in the past, it was great to hear about again cementing the importance of BDD.

It’s always going to be good when Kat shows up. This talk was no exception and gave a great ‘detailed enough’ explanation of the various ways one can structure a project. Happy to be able to understand most of it. Will look forward to the slides.

I agree fully with Andy Gales comment :D

Testing is something I'm still not confident with, but there was alot of information I took from this talk and will need to think about in the future.
Well done!
