Great information that didn't get stuck in the details. I walked away with a good overview of how to start applying this at home.

Mr. Wathan's talk was one of the best and most useful that I attended. TDD requires completely revising one's approach to development, and until one is experienced in TDD, the approach feels incredibly foreign and unintuitive. This talk helped me "wrap my head around" TDD because it utilized a live-coding segment in which the speaker built a simple "Tweeter" application using TDD in Laravel.

Mr. Wathan is clearly an excellent developer; he is able to navigate his IDE and terminal with extreme efficiency and I was very impressed with his ability to live-code for nearly and hour without making any mistakes (barely a typo!).

I will eagerly attend any of his future talks.

I confess that I'm not a Laravel developer, and I attended this talk solely because I love live demos and I know this speaker does them well. :) That said, this was indeed a fantastic talk, and someone with a Laravel background wanting to learn TDD absolutely must attend this talk if they have the opportunity.
