Chris did a great job explaining a tough and abstract topic.

Chris did an awesome job explaining and presenting and demystifying what a "Design Pattern" really is.
The only suggestion is for an ending slide with some resources on PHP or Software Engineering material to follow up on this important topic. Thanks.

I left with a strange urge to categorize shirts ...

Very clear and relaxed talk. Impressive poise and demeanor for a first talk at a conference. Got the concept across very well. Since you had a bit of time left over, might add something to bring it into the programming world and give a couple examples of patterns and anti-patterns.

Awesome discussion that I think could have been improved with a few definitions/examples at the beginning to give people new to design patterns more of a foundation. I loved the conversational format that involved the whole room!

surprising, but enlightening

Very well structured to give people the basic understanding of what is and is not a design pattern. Good real life examples to make it easy to see how Design Patterns fit into real life.

Good talk. Perhaps stayed a bit abstract but he made it clear that that was what he was going to do. I think the talk successfully explained what the word "pattern" means. Could have been a talk on polymorphism; a lot of the content would be reusable. I would recommend this talk.
