Another absolutely superb event. Full credit to the organisers and their team. Some great fun ideas as part of the conference, such as the treasure map and gold doubloon. There were some really great talks this time around. The Jetbrains track unfortunately suffered with some acoustic issues which did detract from the great talks in that track.

Great event, my second year coming, looking foward to coming back next year.

Once again, great work by the team. Clearly all feedback was taken into consideration from last year to try to make things even better.

Some nice and welcome additions, like the treasure map, soft drink availability, and extra activities during the social.

The only problem I found were really things that couldn't be controlled. Catering was better than last year, but portion sizes and choice wasn't great (And soft drinks in time for lunch!). And the track 2 sound problems, which are already well understood and well documented!

Add me to the waiting list for next year :)

Great to see the conference back, and improved with some of the small niggles from last year sorted.

The support for new conference speakers is the standout things for me about this conference, taking a punt on us and giving us a stage is an amazing thing for you to do and I'm so grateful for the opportunity.

It was a bit of a shame that the organisers didn't have time to do a line up at the front for a round of applause, I thought that was a nice touch from last year and you all deserved one.

The only real disappointment was the food options were really limited for a second year running, particularly at lunch.

My first South Coast, and it was really good. I'll echo the food complaints, providing meat and sauce with very few places to sit was frustrating.

Last year was great, so I was very much looking forward to this year.

This year: twice as good.

The content from speakers was mind blowing in most parts and the hall way tracks were great. Getting to talk to PHP core developers was great, the atmosphere of the community resonates how good our community actually is, from the core to the users of PHP.

All the staff were great. Thank you for giving up your family/personal time on the day and months leading up to it.

I look forward to ordering tickets to PHP South Coast 2017.

I love this event and will definitely keep coming. Really happy that you did the treasure map and doubloon thing; not a fan of rum but hey ho.

Excellent talks and speakers, great organisers, good company, nice sponsors, and some fun swag to be had. Laser Quest and the board games are always a hit. :D

Things that could be improved - the lack of choice of alcoholic beverages for those of us who can't/don't drink beer/ale. Wine or cider would have been welcomed. Also, gluten free snacks, and snacks at the afternoon refreshment break were missing. :(
