Very interesting talk, first thing I did the following morning was look at if I could apply the ReactPHP to any of the projects I've worked on the last few months. Implementing my own HTTP server on small internal APIs could be an option soon though.

Very good talk, and very informative.

Great and entertaining as always ;)

Nice debut! Good content and confident delivery (even though Marga said she felt stressed). Keep submitting your talks!

Very good. With a bit of polishing, adding some good exception use cases, and practice this could become a full-length talk.

Great talk! Repeating patterns (and jokes) are a good way to keep engagement. Code examples were sometimes too long. Perhaps analogies, or diagrams would make the talk easier to digest. The final demo should be really part of the talk.

Great talk and very interesting. It felt like the examples were somehow a bit skipped (lack of time?) even though they looked well prepared and explained. A bit more of advices on how to manage exceptions especially with the new \Throwable interface in PHP7 would also be welcomed in the future!

I really enjoyed Marga's talk. It was refreshing to have one regarding the metrics and analysis of how a website performs and how it can be the main driver for improving the codebase and making it integral to our day-to-day development, rather than it being an afterthought.

For the codebase in question it may not have been possible to show the analytics tools in action without revealing sensitive information, which I believe the talk was missing. However I think this could become a full-length talk given a good sandbox or open-source example. (Sylius maybe? ;)

Great talk about how the realm of non-blocking I/O, event loops, asynchronous calls and promises withing HTTP and how they can make apps more efficient - something often not associated with PHP applications. The best part was towards the end where got to see React PHP in action with Symfony and Nginx.

I think the talk could have started with segments from the demo as it would have been easy to follow the concepts mentioned during the talk.

(I'm working on a reverse-HTTP server in React PHP and this talk was useful for helping with my approach).

Talk nicely delivered, if you didn't mention you prepared it half an hour before no one would have guessed! I'm personally aware of PSRs (the current ones and the ones in progress, but still it was niec to have a reminder), so the new part for me was about how FIG works. I liked the jokes you made and the interaction with the attendees, it also felt quite natural: good job!
