The speaker was both enthusiastic and informative. I was not only surprised to see how many different tools there were out there for different types of formal testing, but more importantly, I found something very important in his message - that in order to test efficiently, one needs to design their architecture so that it is *testable*! While I don't think I will ever go to the extremes of testing that he described for most applications, this fully convinced me that I hadn't been doing it nearly enough.

This was my first meeting and it was great. I know just enough PHP that everything the speaker talked about was relevant and important information that I could understand. Now if I can just get some time to play around, I'll be writing some testable apps and using TDD and BDD. Thank you!

Speaker's presentation was informative. It was a shame that he did not want to deal with the mic. I could only catch about half of what he said as he tended to trail off in volume and clarity at the end of a lot of sentences. Maybe an over the ear boom mic should be used for speakers with non-collared shirts or flamboyant speaking styles.
It was obvious that he was cramming a 3 hour presentation into 1 hour, and I think that the presentation suffered from that. Still, he presented a strong, informative case for testing and building applications to be testable.
Definitely worth the ten bucks.

@Chris Fortunately, I registered early and am looking forward to attending the event. I believe that if all of us who have purchased tickets understood that seating was first-come-first-serve we could open up the event to more people who wanted to attend. Thanks for all the work you've done to help organize this presentation.

Mike - because this is a ticketed event (our very first!) and we have limited seating, we aren't opening up a waiting list, as we want to be sure everyone has a seat. Typically, for free events, we have the automated waiting list and say that while we don't deny people entry, you might have to stand in the back if it's filled. Apologies, but we've reached capacity!
