Excellent talk. Speaker seemed to be very knowledgeable and lots of useful information about skills I need to know.

Excellent talk! The pacing was great considering the amount of material presented. It's obvious that you've been presenting for a long time. :o)

Lots of concise and practical information.

There was lots of information, some of the specific information was good, but I felt that some of the examples of what not to do were poor.

it's good to know the quality qualification and criteria from an experienced employer perspective.

Great overview on the track you should be on to become a great developer, also slides are pretty self explanatory +1

The name of the talk is very appealing. Unfortunately the direction it took was more '30 tools and frameworks you should use/favour to pass an interview at my company'. The soft skills, design patterns and way we develop solutions in teams was much more what i'd have expected.

I seriously hope that nobody walks away from this talk assuming they're a bad developer because they use Symfony over Laravel - every framework has it's purpose, and the choice comes down to the project at hand and the team dynamics.

Whilst I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, i feel it's important we don't as a community hate on other frameworks or languages, as we often see the innovations that new frameworks bring being adopted by others.

This opinion is something shared across speakers in the javascript community at present. Hopefully we can prevent any further elitism within the PHP world. Save that for people FTP'ing files around & git pulling on their prod servers.

Whilst protesting in my mind against everything that was being said, i felt the talk was delivered well.

I think the title would be more accurate as "30 Tools" as I feel most the talk was not about skills, but rather tooling. Beyond that, the presentation was given well even if I did not agree with some of it. ;)
