Loved the inclusion of emojis in your class names!

Nice overview and great examples :-)

Quite interesting and a very knowledgeable speaker. It's a shame that his presentation failed and we missed the last slides

Great talk that explained really well what changes we can expect in PHP 7.4, as well as looking forward toward php 8!
