Talk comments

Interesting idea for a talk but somehow it felt more like "how to add another badge to your repo" and not about how to level up as a developer.

Good overview on how to write your first PHP extension.

Great introduction into the open source github ecosystem with a lot of examples.
Some "multiplayer / competitive" gamification ideas would be great

Great talk to get you started in developing your own PHP extension.
Nice examples including testing your extension.
And some nice PHP insights as well.

Good topic, but becomes repetitive really quick, and I really felt that at some point most slides were redundant.

I would suggest compressing the current content about code analysis, and searching for additional gamification topics.

Maybe even just adding an "ideas" topic for what could be gamified, or maybe focusing on repository metrics, rather than code metrics. I would also add "how to actually make noise about my work, so that people start using it", or such.

Definitely needs more content.

Brilliant research work!
The talk itself was quite mechanical and "heavy" on an evening crowd, but the produced materials and conveyed knowledge is invaluable! Amazing!

Thanks for a great explanation to the Macro-Language PHP is written in. Finding references to documented examples will make it easier for me to create a PHP-Extension now. And I'm pretty sure I will use the talk-slides as reference in future.

In my eyes a bit more structure and a "story" would make the talk even better.
