Talk comments

I really liked how the speaker lasered in on concurrency, compared to parallelism, and demonstrated how straightforward they are to implement in Go compared to PHP. Really made the benefit clear and accessible to anyone who's never touched them before because they're too complex in other languages.

Also, it hit the GOPATH on the head straight away.

The talk was very geared up for the particular way their company does scalability based on their particular requirements, could definitely benefit from being broader and more general. As a game developer, I also found all the games industry dissing a tad unnecessary. Sure a lot of game servers aren't written well, but it's not that bad.

Recent convert to serverless and cloud functions and absolutely loving it. Excited to get OpenFaaS running at work on-prem through Kubernetes!

Really enjoyed this workshop and am already employing event storming at work. Found it's actually much more naturally accessible to business and manufacturing folk than software engineers! Too many preconceived notions.

A lot of great information and tips on running php-fpm, intrigued to try some of them out. Wasn't sure how well two speakers would work but they managed to pull it off really well.

Some great tips to improving how you use composer. Was good to see some of the newer features that have been added as well

Probably the single best talk of the day. Not only did it provide an informative and concise lesson, I have already started exploring the language in more detail. I have it installed and have already started a PR to an open source project ?I am hooked.

I look forward to listening to more lessons from Kat!

2nd time i have seen you talk (previous was PHP Yorkshire). A fantastic talk and a good choice for closing keynote.

Although I had seen you speak about privacy and GDPR before there was a fair difference in the content.
