Mind blown. So much new interesting stuff to look at and research and apply. Great, very entertaining talk.

great example of an "advanced" session. speaker talks very fast and covers an enormous amount of material, so audience must already be pretty comfortable with the topic in order to follow along. but the talk was entertaining and educational.

Kerpow! That knocked me out. Ross, truly truly an amazing talk - the community as a whole needs to start supporting this more. Makes me so happy to see the right message finally making it's way into the conferences.

This is a very difficult concept to get across and the fact that you were able present it effortlessly in an hour has utterly amazed me. Great job!

Very insightful and relevant talk. ZendCon would be worth its money if your talk alone could be longer, or perhaps a tutorial session or full day seminar on practicing writing and architecting code following various patterns you talked about.

You talk fast, lost you at times, but was interested throughout the whole talk! Thanks.

Great talk, engaging presentation, 100 miles an hour but gives you enough to go look at things in depth later.

That's what I was waiting for!

The only reason that I marked this 3 stars and not 5 is because the talk's pace was extremely fast and unless you had a php interpreter in your brain it was very hard to follow along. I think I understood most of it conceptually but had the speaker spent a few more seconds on each slide, I would have been able to grasp the concept and the implementation too. Unfortunately there were too many new concepts for me to remember even by looking at the downloaded slides.
Having said that, the contents of this talk could have easily been put into a 300 page book so I understand that the speaker had to run through it (but still, I would have prefered less content delivered slowlier).
If you ever make an O'reilly, or Lynda video of an extender version of this I would definitely buy it!

Why didn't someone warm me this talk was so advanced? Oh wait, they did. Ross is a fantastic, humorous presenter for the right crowd but I feel like his talk warranted an extra special "Super Advanced Fast-Paced Knockout" tag on it. Extremely in-depth, well-researched information that made my head spin.

Outstanding. Highly entertaining and informative. Will give me a lot of things to think about going forward mind is still reeling from this. I've watched Gilmore Girls, so when I saw the disclaimer I thought "pfft...I can handle this". No. By the end I wandered out from the room bewildered, babbling "what just happened?" "is this real life?".

All jokes aside, this talk was the star of the show for me. 284 slides of mind-blowing clarity and conciseness on DDD and CQRS that had me like "whoa, I get it now!". Previous to this day I could never quite wrap my head around DDD and CQRS, and not for lack of trying. This talk was that "lightbulb" moment I was looking for!

That said, I can see how some would be turned off by the pace, though. I've read extensively about DDD and CQRS, had the foundational knowledge of terms and patterns, but just didn't have the "why", and I suspect that's why I didn't find the pacing an issue. There wasn't enough time or information in the talk to get someone new to the concepts up to speed and lost out on the life-altering epiphany in the process.

I really hope Zend recorded this one and will release it.
