I really enjoyed this talk. It's refreshing to listen to a speaker who has been in the trenches and knows what they are speaking about.

Worth hearing.

I really enjoyed the talk and learned a lot!

Mr. Butts' depth of knowledge regarding this subject is staggering. He presented a tremendous amount of information in an hour and in so doing, he provided a full "recipe" for high-availability infrastructure. He speaks authoritatively and from professional experience, and it's immediately apparent that he is an expert where this subject is concerned.

His slide-deck can be considered an extremely valuable, high-level roadmap to implementing the associated technologies.

I'm pleased to see that Mr. Butts is delivering a couple other talks and I will be attending them.

The speaker was very knowledgeable on the subject, understandable, articulate, etc..., but I think the slide deck being as text-heavy as it is might have hurt the delivery of the talk. If I've got text in front of me, it's hard not to read it, and reading it means I'm not able to pay full attention to the speaker. The slides are excellent reference material which would serve well as post-talk notes / summary that could be shared, but I think tweaking them to be less wordy during the talk so as to not draw attention from the speaker would help a lot.

Also, this talk felt like more of a high-level look at building a highly available PHP application but didn't dig TOO deeply into any specific thing, which is not what I would have expected after reading "[...] and how to build one" in the talk abstract.

So, both the speaker and the raw content of the talk are perfectly fine, but I think tweaking the packaging, delivery, and expectation-setting via the abstract would make this a really, really excellent presentation.

Touching almost all important aspects.

Great info. Whilst the session didn't end up being completely relevant, but interesting information that I can reference.

Interesting information to someone who hasn’t been exposed to docker and the aws scaling options
