I don't know if the text was big enough for people at the back.
Interesting subject, one I haven't really considered before! I liked your use of tone, body language and pace as you spoke, and that you engaged the audience with eye contact and questions.
Live demo at a lightning talk?! Very daring!

Beautiful slide. Interesting topic. Love stuff on security and how to protect ourselves. Hard to hear as very softly spoken. Happy for this stuff to be shouted so we can all learn.

An actual demo of data as well. Brilliant.

Really interesting attack vector, not one iv seen before so great to know about. Would have liked a more in depth explanation about how the attack works as felt it was a bit quick. Also needed large font sizes on the code examples and longer to read them, but otherwise well delivered and a great topic.

A good talk on a concept I didn’t know about! Glad we only accept JSON from authenticated clients!

I’d suggest putting the code samples and results on the slides, and skip the live demo - it makes it much easier to read and doesn’t take away from the lesson.

Interesting talk, could have perhaps explained what hash collisions were and how they applied to this attack. Confidentiality given

Informative, hadn't heard of that type of attack before so definitely needs looking into as a laravel user! Main improvement would be in checking the demo is visible to everyone in the room (text was a bit small!)

Interesting, i will look into this but needed more time to understand it (probably me not your explanation)

Very interesting topic, and more than one Laravel dev went home scared after it.. Good talk! To be improved: bigger text size and microphone.
