Optimising a Zend Framework Application
Just watched the talk on vimeo (http://vimeo.com/21146993). Great talk, easily understandable (important for me, as I'm not a native English speaker), with a very good flow - not fast, not slow, just the perfect pace. The topic itself is great, loved the tips on the application config, the custom Zend_View and the Zend_Loader::loadFile method. Thanks for the talk Rob and also to the PHPUK for making the videos available!

Lazy Evaluation: stop wasting memory and time
Great talk, which surely deserves a lot more time. Love seeing a presenter being really excited about his talk, like Juozas was today :)

Nice introductory talk to PHP extensions, nicely presented, just the right amount of information to get excited about tomorrow's workshop (and further PHP ext development). Happy to finally hear Derick give a talk! :)

PHAR, the PHP .exe format
nice intro talk to phar, with some additional tricks and tips and gotchas. Liked the way Helgi presented it. The only downside were the broken live examples.

PHPCR - PHP Content Repository Specification
a good overview of what phpcr is and why/where to use it. killed it with continuing to talk after the time was up, so had to just get up and leave at one point.

An introduction to Phing the PHP build system
The best talk, imho, for these 2 days. Great presenter, nice talk, clear, to the point, nice explanations. +infinity points for having a backup plan for the demos. Loved that the talk included stuff from the presenter's real life projects.

This was the most technical talk of the conference. If I got it correctly on the beginning, Graeme was ill, so it affected the presentation. Nevertheless some nice tips about vagrant and puppet.

REST APIs made easy with Symfony2
Very well presented, nice content. As a suggestion, maybe it'd be nice to have a part in the end on "best practices", or, "this is how we use it in our company because of reasons". Real life examples are always a plus!

Handling Higly Connected Data with the Neo4j Graph Database
I liked that the examples were from an open source project. The demos were heavily impacted that Michelle had to hold the mic with one hand and type with the other. It was presented in a somewhat slow and monotonous way.

Designing a Model Architecture
Great talk, got some new ideas how to improve my code, some new things to try out. Would like to hear about handling some "edge" cases when the line between layers is not that clear, e.g. using templates in emails whose sending is being triggered by the service layer.

Getting started with Dependency Injection
Nice intro talk to DI, covered pretty much all about the topic. Liked the examples how it was done in the past, the downsides of it, and how it should be done. Advices from the presenter's real-life work were an added bonus! Great communication with the audience during the talk.

Identity
The time slot for this talk was too long, I have a feeling everything was said in the first 10-15 minutes. It was a bit difficult to pay attention and follow along after that.

Extremely defensive PHP
An "uncomfortable" talk as the presenter gives (valid) opinions about our code and what we usually do wrong. I liked the introduction of defensive driving at the very beginning as it gave a real-world, non-programming parallel to the advices Marco gave in his talk.

Building Open Source Communities
An inspiring talk that finally managed to put into words what was in the back of my mind for a while - "Throw away your ego!" Every programmer, involved with OSS or not, should hear this talk. I hope to start using some of the advice from this talk in my day-to-day job as well as in my OSS work.

Making Embedded Domain-Specific Languages a Practical Reality

CQRS and Event Sourcing in practice @ Qandidate.com

Introduction to Event Sourcing and CQRS with Broadway
Good tutorial, learned new things. The examples at the end were broken so the mentors spent time on fixing those instead of maybe answering more questions. Also it would be nice couple days earlier to let the attendees know what the requirements are for the workshop so everyone sets up before the workshop begins.

Level up your team
Best talk of the conference for me, very happy that Stefan decided to rehearse it at the uncon. Mind you, the talk is not just about leveling up your team, but also about leveling up yourself, which we constantly need to do. Came away with lots of good tips, and very inspired to learn new things. One remark: at one point the speaker asked: "Who attended a user group meeting?" And then another question right after it, "Who at least heard about a user group in their area?" Feels like the first question should have been "Who never attended a user group meeting?"

Security in the age of frameworks
Luka is a great presenter, exceptional knowledge of the subject at hand. I think his example showed a great point that today it's not enough just to use a 3rd party library or service, but that we need to learn how to properly and securely use it. Also when it comes to security, the job must be done completely, it's not wise to live it half-finished. Luka had only 25 minutes to present the subject, and the overall point of the topic might not came across to everyone in the audience as I feel the talk was cut short to fit the time slot. Deserves at least 35 minutes.

Tactical DDD (just better OOP?)
Loved the format of the talk - introduce and explain new concepts, let us work with those concepts by working on an assignment/example, walk through it together with Matthias, move onto new concepts and new assignment, rinse and repeat. Covered all the basics of DDD well I think, plus had lots of useful additional information, how and when to use DDD. Had the opportunity to ask questions and get answers using the example we were working on. Really well done, I learned a lot.

Code Archaeology: Becoming Indiana Jones
Bits and pieces of useful information what to do when you land in an old project that's new to you. Legacy applications can be very difficult to figure out and piece together, and the presenter gave advice how to deal with them from their own personal experience. Actual examples would have been nice to have. All in all, a good beginner talk.

Code Archaeology: Becoming Indiana Jones

Beyond patterns & principles - writing good OO code
For me, it was a really good follow-up to the Friday workshop held by the speaker, but I think you can gain a lot from this talk even without the workshop. Good coverage on why having value objects and entities instead of primitive types is useful, how services should behave, that objects should exist only in valid state... All in all, I learned new, good, things from this talk and that's what matters to me.

Good flow in the talk, nice and simple live demos, but they still show a somewhat real-world use case.
