Good fun seeing wicked syntax and php engine quirks applied in creative ways.
The presentation wasn't what I expected. Seeing how much the presenter knows about PHP, I think his expertise would have best used on another topic.
Pretty cool to see Marco use and abuse PHP - even though there wasn't a lot of practical information to take away from the talk (which was by design) - I did pick up a better understanding of the language and Reflection API. Interesting talk, I would have liked to see a couple more examples of abuse, but it was a good talk and the delivery, pace, tone was spot on.
Hey Matt! I wish I had more time for more examples, but we got really close to 60 minutes :-(
I will beef it up with more libraries.
You can check https://github.com/Ocramius/voodoo-php/tree/gh-pages/examples if you want to dig further into the topic :-)
Fun talk! Learned about a bunch of stuff nobody should be doing.
I thought the voodoo intro was fun, and good humor throughout!
I think I missed the transition from "magic things to avoid" to "libraries doing magic things" so I was confused for a bit (I probably zoned out for a second because it's really clear in your slides).
I thought all the examples of the libraries were great, but it felt a little repetitive after awhile - "here's annnoother library!" - and they started running together, so I think mixing up the structure might have helped me a little.
Also thanks for introducing me to 3v4l.org!
