Derick is in his element talking about this stuff, well informed and amusing. Fairly good discussion too, even though there was a danger of it drying up. Sorry, can't remember the name of the chair, but nice seed topics provided.

Great discussion session that turned into a basic Computer Science lecture ;-) very useful in that php pretty much does it all for you

Provided me with a few helpful pieces of advice on how I should try and identify further memory-hogging blocks of code, and some great in-depth details of the innards of PHP memory management. Certainly provided food for thought.

'I wouldn't try that' was the oft heard comical response from Derick, a light hearted look at a deep core topic, on form :)
