Great talk funny and with live demo, not too detailed but we do not really want to much details in that kind of showcase.

Very detailed and interesting talk. I think it could be beneficial for Jan to add more life examples and most important few jokes as that amount of content require some jam in order to be swallowed in one go.

A succinct overview of Laravel features, well presented and engaging. Even after a year in laravel and many more in MVC I discovered some new things. Nicely done Tom

A great fly-by view of Laravel's best bits but possibly tried to cram a little too much in to do each feature justice. Maybe could have left out Blade templating and form-model binding and just raved about Eloquent relationships. Or the opposite, left out the model and migrations and demonstrated how seamless hooking up CRUD methods is. I've been using Laravel for a couple of years but this talk still introduced me to a few funky little tips that I will be playing with tomorrow. Well done, Jeff Way would be proud.

Excellent talk, and for someone who has only been using Laravel for a small amount of time, has grasped the basics very well.
Feedback for Tom; probably a little more explanation on some of the coding, as skipped over a few bits, but this may have been down to time.

Very good introduction talk to the Laravel for beginners, well structured with plenty of information.

Demos that work!? What's the world coming to... Great fast-swoop over Laravel, and good use of humour to keep audience engaged. Really enjoyed that and found it informative.

An interesting talk, but could have done with more code examples of building a form and possibly a slightly better slide design.

I've been using laravel at work for a couple of years. Still learned a lot! Well presented, good clear introduction for everyone.

As a complete newcomer to Zend I was interested to see how using this part of the framework would make my life easier than doing everything manually. I'm not sure I got that, but it gave me several useful keywords for the features I'd need to look at. The speaker clearly had a wealth of knowledge and experience on the topic, and I wonder if a basic demo of setting up a form would have given a better contextualised intro.
