What's in a name?
Really great talk that gave me loads to think about and apply to my work. The format of showing possible naming options and eliminating with rules was really clear and helpful. The nerves drop away with experience, so keep at it - this talk is definitely worth submitting to more conferences.

Beyond PSR-7: Design Your Own Middleware Using The Instruction Bus
Super talk. I did lose track of the terminology at one point, but that might just be my inexperience with the subject and so many new concepts to take on board.

Speedy Seeding for Load Testing
Great talk, with about the right amount of content for the time. Would’ve liked to have seen an example of the bare SQL differences to hammer the point home.

Bad Tech Tests
Loved the fable format - that sort of storytelling can be risky for a technical presentation but it worked so so well for this. It’s a shame the last part was compressed for time - so a small pacing issue there - but it didn’t detract from the message. Great stuff.

Get out of jail "free" cards - tips and quick fixes to get you out of sticky situations with servers, websites and APIs
Lots of really good tips over a wide range of the stack. Some I knew and some that were completely new to me. Ran a little slow at points, but that’s no big deal. Thanks!

The Symfony Open-source Community
Enjoyed this! Maybe some real world anecdotes might enhance it by making things more directly relatable to each audience member, and not just something to academically agree with.

Dungeons, Dragons & Developers
Could just be me, but I couldn’t unpick the analogies quickly enough before the next one came along. I don’t work in a team, so there’s always an additional layer of relating needed with team talks. Coupled with the thick layer of analogy I’m afraid I was completely lost. I literally don’t know what the talk was about. (Also didn’t know who the example comic book / movie super heroes were, so was again lost.) Sorry ? I think when doing this again it would be good to stress in the description that it’s suited to people who work in teams to save others getting lost.
