Searching with Solr - Why, When and How
Too generic. Some of the stuff he said (like what kind of searches there are) I could have also looked up in the manual. Also, giving a list of "maybe you can use it then" (maybe being the operative word here) without giving any definitives as to when I really should use it doesn't really help me a lot. Other than that is was an okay overview of Solr.

IPv6 for PHP Developers
Very nice presentation. David really knows his stuff and it shows. Throws in a joke every now and then which keeps the air light while still being very informative.

The hitchhikers guide to agile
I found it kind of weird he started out with "I wanted to talk about this, but instead I will now talk about that" and it looked as if he didn't really want to [but would have liked to give the presentation he initially had in mind]. Quite some references to scrum, and since I don't know scrum it was not really to follow what he was talking about sometimes. I would have expected a talk on agile wrt php, but this was more generic. That may have been my fault though.

Clean PHP
Sebastian made very good points that everyone should be reminded of now and again, but the way he presented it was a tad boring; most of the talk he was just reading from a sheet of paper. That made the talk a lot stuffier than it could have been. He really does know his stuff though, which is nice.

Missed the php aspect as well, but nice talk on html5. I was surprised there was no reference to http://caniuse.com/

Managing a shared MySQL farm
I had expected more of a mysql/memcache scaling talk from the description in the booklet, but I enjoyed this talk too. Thijs is a very good speaker and really knows his stuff. Nice to listen to.

Bugfixing for Zend Framework
Good talk and nice intro to bugfixing in ZF. I would have gone for a lighter background so that the text is better readable. Increasing the lightness of the current image (or giving it a semi-transparant white overlay) would do wonders.

Stop wasting time by applying Clean Code principles
Good presentation style and nice topic. Will definitely look into buying on (or more) of the suggested books. One tip for the speaker; it's not really customary in the UK to use strong language, so while I (and I'm guessing most people there) didn't mind, you may want to look in to this, or look for different words to use when in the UK :)

Feeling secure? - notes from the field
Even though I knew most of the stuff it's good to get them hammered in every once in a while because it's just so important, and as Paul correctly said we tend to get a bit complacent over time when it comes to security. Paul is a very good speaker; very confident, relaxed and really knows his stuff. I liked this presentation a lot!

Are Your Tests Really Helping?
I enjoyed the first half, but the second half too me felt too up close and personal, and should have been (and probably was) a rant to her dev team, instead of to a hall filled with people unrelated to her dev team. Even though she had some good points, I think they would be better delivered if presented in a more positive way, instead of the obvious negative personal frustration. I get that the talk is about what not to do, but that doesn't mean it has to be completely delivered that way.

Varnish your PHP application, make it fly!
Okay talk, but could have been better with more graphs of with varnish vs without varnish. Also more examples than just magento (which I personally do not care for) would have been nice. Was a bit shocked by the "Just use AJAX to update the dynamic info once the page is loaded" comment. Apparently the speaker doesn't care about people who have javascript disabled in their browser for whatever reason.

PHP and Twilio

PHP and Continuous Data Processing
Really interesting to see what problems Micheal is facing in his job, and very impressive with how's dealing with them. He seems to have things very much under control. Presentation was good, but it was pretty clear he was a bit nervous. That will probably go away as he gives more presentations on the subject (which he should, because it's very interesting).

Mastering PHP Data Structure 102
Code wasn't very readable, and I had a expected a different direction; the talk was mainly about implementation of primitive types, I expected more compound types. Nevertheless, quite a good talk and well presented.

From the ground up – Hands-on coding, deploying, and scaling with AWS
Most enjoyable talk of PHPNW12 as far as I'm concerned. Very nice presentation style; funny but still to the point. Good overview of AWS and how to work with it, including some good examples of how not to work with it.

Lithium – The framework that contains the best of all worlds
I've been using lithium for a while and was interested to hear if there were any parts I missed or was using wrong. Glad I didn't find any during the talk ;) Well presented, although I agree the introduction could be a bit shorter so there is more time for in-depth lithium.

Lots of stuff in the talk should be second nature to all programmers, but it doesn't hurt to re - iterate every now and again. Split screen worked well I think.

Easy HTTP Clients with Guzzle
Having never used Guzzle myself but wanting to try this was a very welcome introduction. If the speaker was looking to expand the talk they might want to look into swagger to generate the specification from comments in the API itself instead of writing everything by hand.

A resource orientated framework using the DI/AOP/REST Triangle
Very investing approach but I had trouble keeping focused with all the language switching. It also feels like the speakers could do with more practicing this talk (no offence to mackstar, I've seen him talk before and he's a good speaker, but seamed a bit uncertain for this talk)

Scala: The Developer's Overview
Very good talk. The speaker really knows his stuff and isn't nervous talking about it. Good overview with examples of common things you may find in day-to-day developing. One thing I missed a bit is how the large overview of projects look like. Like what are you main things you need to set up, in terms of program entry points, configuration, etc. Although I suppose anyone could easily find that information online by themselves :) I'm not personally convinced to switch to scala because the language doesn't really appeal to me, but it's not due to lack of trying from the speaker!

Let's Write Some History!
Very good talk on an interesting topic! Speaker was self confident and really knew what he was talking about. The only suggestion I would make is either explain the parts of DDD and CQRS you're using or try to leave those techniques out completely. Saying "It happens there but I won't explain it" isn't very helpful and as you've noticed the audience will ask for repeatedly until you have to explain it in the end anyway ;) Also, if you give this talk again you may want to (have somebody) proof-read you slides, as there are a few misspellings on there (e.g. "will" instead of "we'll").

Developing a Reactive Process Manager, Twice
Good talk, well delivered, especially given that the speaker really wasn't feeling too well! The examples given were very clear and served their purpose well. The Scala/Akka examples were well presented and clear, but the C# part felt a bit rushed. If the point was that C# is much more verbose than Scala/Akka is then it was fine, but if the speaker really wanted to show the code he should've taken a bit more time to do that.

Hacking Foresight from Hindsight
Good speaker, nice to listen to, and a good overview of mentoring/being mentored! A minor thing is that I think the talk could do with a bit less of the who's who in his life - since I don't know those people it didn't really speak to me. "some people help me A, others with B" without naming all the people would convey the same content in my opinion.

Awesome talk! The beginning was absolutely brilliant, and the talk itself was very informative and taught me everything I needed to know about getting started with a command bus, which is something we will be doing at work in the very near future!

HTTP is Dead. Long Live HTTP/2!
Introduction about HTTP/1 was a bit too long for my taste, could have been shortened to about 10 to 15 minutes. The part about HTTP/2 was very interesting but could have been a bit more in-depth. The speaker presents in a nice way, but could be a bit more animated - it was all a bit dry, that would do the talk a lot of good.

Templating - you're doing it wrong
Interesting concept, but kind of odd that the initial of goal of the speaker is to not have to install a web server of every designer / front ender's PC and ends up with a technique that still requires a server after all. Technique is quite interesting a would be good for mocking up stuff, but I'm not sure how it'll hold up in production performance-wise, since DOM manipulation is quite expensive. Speaker has a good presentation style. I liked listening to him.

Hexagonal architecture - message-oriented software design

Software architecture in an agile age
I was expecting more of a management kind of talk, on how to manage architecture during sprints for example. Since I've already seen everything there is to know about UML at university this talk did not teach me anything new. Maybe change the name of the title to make clear it is about diagrams? Good speaker though, nice to listen to.

Really loved this Dohmscode talk!

Elixir for 'Web-ish' Applications
The speaker was very relaxed and had a nice way of talking. Pace was also good, the talk was easy to follow. One thing that could've been better is that the speaker should have practiced a little bit more beforehand regarding how long the talk would take. He already started the talk saying he wouldn't know whether he would have time for the last section of the talk. The talk could have been arranged such that everything could have fit in, by simplifying or omitting details in the beginning of the talk, which would have made talk more round, and not leave an open end such as it was today. Not that it really bothered me, the rest of the talk made up for the lack of the last bit, but it somehow it didn't feel quite finished. Also, the speaker kept saying "I'll come back to this later" quite a lot. Normally this would indicate that a talk is not structured all that well, but in my opinion that was not the case here. The structure was fine, and it felt natural to come back to some points later in the talk, however, the fact that the speaker kept drawing explicit attention to this made it feel a bit weird. Keeping the presentation the same but saying "I'll come back to this later" less often would improve this talk.

How to effectively grow a development team
Excellent talk, brilliantly delivered. I liked that the speaker used the running example of the Schiphol teams to make his points, which made it really clear and easy to follow. The pace of the talk was good, and the speaker's command of the English language was also very good. I didn't find it chaotic at all and do not agree with the speaker that he can't answer questions very well, because he can :) Must see!

Modelling by example
Very good intro to Behat. I've seen it used before, but have not used it myself before. It was good to have someone walk you through the process of how it all ties together. The recorded coding session worked well, but could use some more comment from the speaker; at some points he was quiet a bit too long while the video just kept on running. He could have given some more comments in the way of "Now I'm doing this, or that, because ....". Otherwise very enjoyable. Would recommend.

Message oriented architectures with RabbitMQ
The theory about RabbitMQ, how it works and how to use it, was interesting and explained well, but the practical part of the workshop was rather boring too be honest. It would be nice if there were a real goal we could have implemented, instead of a basic hello world like example. I realise that the setup of the speaker wasn't working as expected but that should not have kept the attendees from implementing the original thought out task.

Architectural Anti-patterns
The idea was nice, but the walk was rather dry. I think it would be better to have less antipatterns and have some more elaborate examples of the ones you do keep. Also, Dimitrios was talking way too fast. Speaking style was good, but just too fast.

Integrating Bounded Contexts
As others have said the title of the talk didn't fit with the content. Also, what the speaker described is one way of doing things (for example one could also use upstart instead of supervisord) and it would be nice if they were presented as such. You presented a nice recipe, but not all tools may be applicable to all use cases.
