The last ones who told me I could learn from a plush toy were my daughters. Of course, I acknowledged. Yet, it dawned on me: Af´╗┐ter ten years of life, the PHP plush has achieved so much! It went to the White House and Antarctica; it spawned forty thousand offspring and a jet-set generation of collectors; it built bridges within and outside the community. The PHP elephpant is the living symbol of the PHP community, straight from the genius of Vincent Pontier. It is a whole character, running across the world and changing colors all the time. Everybody needs elephpant love!

Thought-provoking, Heartwarming, Hilarious, what a magnificent way to end a day of intense learning, reconnecting with old friends, and meeting new amazing people. Damien's talk encapsulates all of these feelings.

Damien is a class-act speaker.

Lots of fun, and a great way to end the day!

The way that Damien gives this talk is singular, is brilliant.

The purpose of a keynote is to inspire people, and Damien does inspire us telling this crazy idea of turning plush toys into something that everyone is passioned about

Such a good talk to end the day. I loved the story and the tone.
I now understand why every dev is so crazy about these plush toys :D
Merci Damien !
