This was a great overview of the features and changes to be aware of in 7.4 - very helpful and clear examples. 🙌

Far too long an explanation about FFI and other reflection. Features i was interested in were brushed over.

+1 for using icons in classes names 😊

Very comprehensive talk. It gave me a good overview of what's new in 7.4, and i felt like the way all of the different new features were given an example, and a bit of time and attention, was really well done.

Great talk! Easy to understand and spent just the right amount of time on each item. Used emoji in code which I would never do in real code, but it made the talk a lot clearer.

Great recap of what's new in PHP7.4 and how it can be used. Derick is very knowledgeable, but a tomato doesn't belong a fruit salad.

Emoji's where nice extra to keep the attention. For me, there was a nice balance between new main features and some exotic things like FFI.

Nice overview of the new features. Some features (e.g FFI) felt a bit too long, but might be because I found these less interesting
