Nice talker, enlightening talk. Thanks

A lot of nice stuff there, even regarding it's remote!

Speaks clear english and his presentating is very comprehensive. The cam view was sometime in front of the examples. So the code was sometimes not completely visible. I don't know if that was someting at my end our Dericks, but I noticed it. And the video was about a second behind the audio. It was not bad, but again, I noticed it. Learned a lot about PHP 8 and I'm excited. Answering question was surprisingly smooth. Good job.

Great talk Derick!

Very informative.

Great insight what will be coming down the line.

Great walk-through over new features of PHP 8, I liked the examples you've picked. Thanks for your time!

A clear presentation of new features coming in PHP 8. The sheets were nicely made and were easy to follow.

Excellent talk, and a nice summing up of exciting new features, covering a lot without making it feel rushed. You might want to check your code examples in your slides though. :D

Nice talk, very informative. The emojis in the class names are a nice touch :)
