How not to design a toad
Too bad we didn't get to see any fonts, but please link your slides, so we still can! I really liked the calm manner you spoke with, specially because it was the first talk of the day. Interesting topic and I hope to see the entire talk once.

Frisby.js: BDD for your REST API
Will definitely check frisby out! Didn't like the presentation of the code much though, I was a lot to take in at the same time, and you flew over it in a very high pace. It also felt very ad-hoc. If editing code in real-time fails, it is often best to avoid it and give code examples in your slides. The theoretical stuff was great though, very useful.

Aspect-Oriented Programming in PHP
Pro talk and would be great as a conference slot. This is really a good, hands-on introduction into AOP. Conference slot next year?

HTTP and Your Angry Dog
It was a great talk! I especially liked how fluent it was. This is a subject everybody thinks they know, but in this talk, the not-so-obvious details about HTTP came up, which is a great asset for any developer. Try not to talk too fast though. Although the words and sentences were still understandable, the amount of information can sometimes be overwhelming, so a somewhat slower pace might help in getting your message across.

How to remove PHP calls and scale your site like crazy!
Great talk! Nicely presented, with good use of the slides. Although the subject is very technical, Wim did an awesome job engaging the audience. Would love to see more about the SCL feature in the future.

Surviving a Prime Time TV Commercial
The talk was very interesting. Too bad David was running a bit late. I didn't mind at all, because it was worth it. One tip though: take a deep breath and try to slow down a bit, even if you're running late. The message will come across better and if the topic is interesting (like now), people don't mind if you go over time a bit afterwards.

Dependency Injection Smells
It was a great pleasure to listen to Matthias talking about all the (wrong) things I see every day. Very well done.

Getting your toolbox together
The subject was very nice and I liked the flow of the slides/talk. I actually didn't really like the 'official stuff', I'm more interested in your version of it. I would also love to hear more about the many cotchas you get when using vagrant.

Composer for busy developers
I really enjoyed the talk. Raphael took the audience on a trip through history and in the progress, lead us to the great composer tool. If you've never used composer, you now know everything you need to get started. If you are using composer, you must've learned something new that makes composer more awesome for you. Some feedback though: don't make too many jokes that bring you down, because you don't deserve that.

Opening keynote: Teach a Man to Fish
Excellent talk and really inspiring! The talk made me realize a couple of things, like that I don't know the training budget of my team, or the skill gaps that we have and it is awesome that Lorna pointed this out. Would love to hear more about leading the change within teams, specially when you're not the teamlead or architect.

Be more productive by taking better notes
I wasn't sure what to expect from this talk, but it really surprised me. How can someone talk about kinds of pens and paper at actually make it interesting? Well, Adam did it! I took some awesome new techniques for note taking from this talk. I liked the overall style of the slides and the level of detail. Try to appear more enthusiastic as that might make it perfect.

Down the Rabbit Hole: Lessons Learned combining Career and Community
Great talk, as usual. Lot's of motivation and a great start of the conference. Specially loved the one slide for @rdohms.

Composer the right way
Finally got to see this talk :) It was great, although too bad there wasn't enough time to properly explain and give examples of toran and satis. Rafael always has a way to make a situation feel personal and the examples in this talk were no different.

Sharing Knowledge
A very inspiring talk from Jenny with a message we should all have heard! Jenny does have a tendency to speak a bit (too) fast, but given the amount of time and content, I can hardly blame her.

Dependency injection, the right way.
Dan definitely knows what he's talking about and the message is very universal: you should do dependency injection, it will make your live better. Having a different point of view than some of the others in de DI club is a-ok, but it might be best to warn people upfront and direct questions that lead to discussions at the end to after the talk. This avoids needless discussions and leaves opportunity for people with genuine questions.

Advanced Adventures in Git
This talk was a real adventure all right. One of the best features is the fact that Lorna let the audience decide on the topics covered. And of course, the content was superb. Some topics were advanced, some were not, but in the case of git, it never hurts to repeat (a lot).

Social
Dinner was a nice, but not that much, I was still pretty hungry afterwards. That being said, I think it was great service, as this is usually when people scatter all over town looking for food. The laser quest was awesome! Great way to get to know new people and who doesn't want to shoot @rdohms in the back?

Growing up with PHP
This talk hit very close to home and was so recognisable! It was easy to see that this was a very personal story and not a word about it was untrue. You were worried about your stage fright, but I think it was hardly noticeable. You were "in the zone", so to speak. It was a bit short though, and I would love to hear more examples and what is still left for you to discover and the wild adventures you still want to partake in. Looking forward to the next time I see it.

A World Without PHP
Good talk, and very recognisable. However, it felt a bit all over the place. I guess the slow transitions between slides and the often looking at the slides didn't help. Also, it was hard to understand the in-crowd jokes watching remotely from the track 2 room. That being said, it's a very interesting angle and a topic that more people should think about and be thankful for.

Passwords and how to handle them
Thanks for the good overview and introduction. I feel this topics has been done many times before, but judging from all the times it's still going wrong, there's a need for it! So keep up the good work of spreading the word.

Let’s FIGure it out
As much as I've left the FIG alone in the past, this talk inspired me to take look at it again. Thank you for the interesting talk, well brought.

OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls 2016
Interesting talk and topic. The OWASP always feels a bit enterprise-like to me, with all the acronyms and complicated naming that goes with it, but Katy did a good job making things a lot simpler. I would've liked to see a couple more examples (perhaps about doing it wrong vs doing it the correct way) of more topics. I did go home with an actionable item, so I'd say there's something in it for everybody.

From Doctor to Coder: A Whole New World?
Having seen it before in a sneak-peek, I must say that it has improved even more! This is a must-see talk for anybody in tech and a must-have talk for many conferences, within or outside of PHP. 5/5 Would see again, if only for being reminded of the good points Aisha makes we can still improve as community.

The Code Manifesto: Empowering our community
Great insightful and (unfortunately) necessary talk. Too bad the slides were sometimes unreadable because of the powerpoint conversion, but Graham rolled with it and this is really where good presenters shine. I felt that some topics could connected a bit better, so the story "flows" better. Other than that, it was a very good opening keynote and it gave us all something to think about.
