You've downloaded and installed open source libraries, required them as Composer dependencies, and perused the source code of countless GitHub repositories. Now, you're ready to help others by creating your own Composer package. So, what does it take to build and publish an open source library? In this Talk, we'll take a look at some of the common patterns open source PHP libraries follow. Along the way, we'll cover: evaluating libraries for quality, common filesystem structures, the importance of tests and how to run them on Travis CI, publishing to Packagist, interacting with a community, and more. By the end of this workshop, you will have all the tools you need to distribute your own Composer package.

Good content

Good content and walkthrough first a beginner with composer. My only suggestions would be have the slides available at the beginning and possible slow down a little during live code portions.

Good content, mediocre execution. Not sure if Ben tested the instructions on his slides on clean Linux/Windows/Mac machines before the presentation. I agree with David that having slides available at the beginning would help, or better yet it would be great to hand out the list of commands to everybody at the beginning.
