Good presentation, like the presenter, would really like it though if all the presenters came better prepared. It doesn't seem like anyone even does a walk through of their presentation before it is given. It diminishes the value we should be getting out of the course.

Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately in this case, Matthew had some unexpected circumstances and was unable to give this workshop. I did my best to prepare a quality presentation and exercises given the very short notice I was giving. Under normal circumstances, I would have had more time to put together a more concrete, structured, and rehearsed plan for the workshop.

Great presentation. Showing everything through live code makes everything clear.

First off, Evan, thanks for a great presentation! For me, not necessarily a waste of time, but this was WAAAAY over my head to get much out of it....other than realize how much I have to learn. I think there should be some expectations or prerequisites explained better in the session synopsis or maybe I just misread. I was expecting a introduction to the framework for PHP programmers who have never used the framework before. Another problem was it was supposed to be a hands on session but there were few power strips in the room so unless your battery life is good enough for the whole day, you're out of luck....again... not your fault. Evan's knowledge was beyond reproach; since he led the team that developed the framework, he was THE authority...and the fixes to the little "challenges" during the sessions showed you really know your shit! This, again, leads me to an expectations disconnect. I'm relatively new to PHP and have only used notepad (I did html back in 1995 for mosaic? browser) and zend studio for tools. I grew up with DOS and have no problem with the command line but I have no experience with GIT, composer or other topics used in the presentation so a lot of that just leaves me scratching my head. Because Zend Studio is so integrated with the Framework, I was hoping there would have been some examples using those tools...but it looks like all the presentations are going to be unix and command line....which I will, unfortunately, never use for the time being. My desktop is Windows and the server is IBMi. Maybe Zendcon, in general, should have a pre-requisite "topic" knowledge assumption to include. In any case, I'll be ready for next year.

Great tutorial , finally got the logic of events , triggers and listeners...A bit fast for me in the coding part, but very helpful and gave me some confidence it is not nuclear science :)

Very accessible to me as a ZF1 dev looking to get into ZF2. Appreciated the live coding exercises. Evan did a good job of explaining the event system and the ZF2 module idiom. Too bad it couldn't be a six hour session so we could get into some of the other details, I'm especially interested in leaning about the new zend form system.

found it useful; wish i had known that the morning and afternoon talks were linked.

Excellent talk! I wish there was another three hours!

Great overview of the basic concepts of ZF2. Only wish it were a little longer. As a ZF1 user, the concepts are quite different.

Great am and pm sessions. Well done.

Evan is a great presenter and is able to structure information extremely well. I always enjoy watching him speak even if I know the material because I will get nuggets out of it.
