Even considering this talk was a filling-in-empty-slot-at-the-last-minute kind of deal, the speaker did a very good job, Adding to this, the previous speaker covered a lot of the same ground, but this speaker managed to skip over some parts of his talk on-the-fly.

There were some interesting original ideas about bugs, and their classification, which I hope the speaker develops further.

Nice clear slides, with lists of useful packages as a practical takeaway. The speaker could perhaps of left these on the screen to allow the audience members time to take photos.

Thank you very much for giving this talk.

Thank you for this super talk. Great high level theory followed with practical advice.

There were a couple of ideas and really good practical pieces of advice, which could perhaps have been emphasised on the slides, but weren't, but I appreciate there was a lot of information to convey.

Slides were good, and code samples nice and readable from where I was sat.

Thanks again.

Useful - especially after Rob's talk. It was good to get more of an insight into the effect that static analysis can actually have on a business.
I liked the roadmap from basic through advanced, and finally to practical.

Really interesting, useful for me as a junior for understanding the topic.

Saved me a bunch of time learning about phan & Psalm and comparing them with Stan. Liked the setup/configure slides. Improvements? Not sure but maybe how could be used to check specific aspects of legacy code in preparation for a PHP version upgrade. If Rob found 5000+ issues with his code, I hesitate to guess what it will do with mine.

Great topic with a lot of information. Felt a little slow at the start but sets the scene well for people who need the wider context. Liked the overview of 3 different tools rather than focusing on just one. The recap at the end was very helpful
