Mobile for PHP developers
Superbe talk! A lot of interesting stuff and nice examples, given by a speaker that knows what he's talking about.

PHP in the Dark
Great talk! Interesting points for advanced users, as well as a great starting point for beginners. The presentation is well structured, and Jeroen is a good, and certainly calm speaker, who is taking the time during the talk to answer small questions, without going into deep. Make it a tutorial next year?

PHP traits, treat or threat?
Interesting topic. But the presentation could have been better. First of all: one can cover traits, without having examples from Zend, or from a very specific case in a very specific environment. Use some basic class that you explain at the beginning, and then toy around with that - keeps the differences far easier to understand. Also it would give you as a speaker the chance to know what slide you're actually on, and quickly see what the point of the code is you are showing to your audience - some notes on your own screen would also come in handy. It would certainly help with the wondering about for example a slide on abstract classes, even when it's completely understandable what the slide was trying to say. The talk however was good, as Nick certainly knows what he's talking about. Even in the Alice-in-wonderland situation.

Writing testable code
Very interesting!!! Keep up the good work - one of the greatest talks ever seen about OOP stuff. You really put some perspective into how writing code that also can be easily tested! Einfach nur spitze!

Estimation or, “How to Dig you own Grave”
It is certainly impossible to loose interest during this talk! Entertaining speaker, with interesting examples and explanations why and how to do things one way or another. Came out of this one with the great feeling that I'm actually not the only one doing some things wrong, ánd the knowledge about how to do it right - starting right after the talk. An "almost quarter of a day" well spent! And if you don't want to know about estimation or graves, do it for the pictures...

Modular application architecture
Finally someone told me what the heck is going on with hooks! It always felt a bit "off"... Great talk. But as M. De Krijger mentioned already: there's more in this one. Give them a bigger timeslot, 'cause it's time well spent!

Micro-frameworks: Why should you care?
Slow presentation, with strange examples. Why compare two things, and then load an extra "helper" in one of them, instead of using built-in functionality? It makes the code less easy to compare, and keeps the focus away from the interesting stuff. There were lots of names in this presentation that I will look up, but the presentation itself was more about the why micro-frameworks were created in the first place, not about why one could/should use them. No comparison between those interesting names, no showing why and what they are doing wrong or right, and no answering the question where and when to use them, nor if it is at all a good or bad thing to use them. I have to say that this seemed more of a philosophical talk about PHP itself, topped off with a hint of being demotivational to even try to share your own less complex code that could resolve a small problem and could be used in an easily reusable way. As for Fabien however: great and calm speaker!

PHAR, the PHP .exe format
An energetic speaker, enthousiastic about the subject. But I can't get around the feeling that it was a talk about the good stuff, while there were a lot of remarks from the audience showing that there are a lot of things where PHAR actually isn't that great. Why not just start with the realistic possibilities of PHAR: where and when is it good to use it, and where should I just simple avoid using them? It would make me leave the talk more with a feeling that I know the pros and cons of PHAR, instead of letting me try things to only get disappointed that it will just not work as expected in certain circumstances. But imho it was a great talk, and I'm really going to try using it at some point! Keep up the good work at integrating this into PHP, and spread the word!

Security audits as integral part of PHP application development
The long intro summarizing the news could have been a lót shorter. And the rest after it came down to "train someone to do audits", or "call secundity". If you read php.net/security and find yourself reading the red boxes in the manual, this talk wasn't really adding something more to it, or clearing anything up. It would for one benefit from more technical additions, and real code examples, so the auditing becomes really a part of the daily development, by not making often made mistakes. There are also a lot of tools mentioned in here, but without telling how one can actually benefit from them, and what they are good or bad at. So for me, the talk missed to answer the only question I had: "how to make security audits an integral part of PHP application development"...

How To Stand On The Shoulders Of Giants
Inspirational and motivational, nothing more to add here! I will certainly buy the DVD of this one! Even without extra stuff added to it!

PSR-7 HTTP messages in the wild
Very interesting presentation! Maybe add some short explanation about what PSR-7 actually is about in the beginning, and change the colorscheme of your IDE for the code demos (grey on black is not that easy to read).

HTTP/2: The Future of the Internet
A speaker with experience, bringing an interesting topic. Too bad it is all kind of abstract just yet, but that will probably change fast enough the next years. Great talk, nice slides!

Technical Debt: why it is crippling you and what to do
Interesting talk, maybe spread the analogy to personal financial debt a little bit more.

PSR-7 HTTP messages in the wild
There is a lot going on in this talk, at a more advanced level, and sometimes in seems quite chaotic, without really being so. You can quickly get lost if you're not paying attention, so pay attention, 'cause it's a really interesting topic.

HTTP/2 for PHP developers
You'll notice that Mattias is an experienced speaker, with more field experience on the topic than 95% of the audience. He provides you with a very clear introduction in HTTP/2, and has some conclusions that you'll take with you to write apps that could be ready for the next web. Great talk!

How to Migrate Anything with Baleen
This could become a game changer! Hopefully the big frameworks start to pick Baleen up, and start using it underlying their own implementations. There might be too much focus on explaining why depending on Baleen could be a good thing for others, as one could easily find arguments for the opposite too: a new dependency on an external library might introduce some problems. The more you try to explain about the benefits, the more some critics will be responding with the cons. Most developers already know what the good or bad is about packages (using composer every day). I for one would have loved to hear more about Baleen itself, and the way it works and can be integrated, because it really is an interesting idea, and worth the time.

Rethinking Extension Development for PHP and HHVM
Well, after this talk I realised there's a lot out there that I still am not capable of as a php developer. Creating an extension for PHP 5, PHP 7 and HHVM is one of those things. This talk made some interesting points. It clearly focuses on the specific MongoDB implementation. It was interesting to see how composer even changed extension development. I missed some side by side comparisons, but that's just nitpicking ;)

PHP 7
Sweet talk. But it's about PHP 7, didn't expect something less.

DevOps for Developers
I had some completely different expectations of this talk. Just read your blogpost, and looking forward to your next more technical talk. One reaction on that blogpost: you are a very peaceful speaker, but for me personally I consider that more of a positive than a negative.

How machine learning can save your life
Great to see Nick in real life, and not only as a Godlike being in a chatroom (PHP/AFT). I was surprised to see how advanced and big the Azure environment actually is. It was an amazing talk, but I would love to see a more technical presentation on what can actually be achieved on more in depth use cases. Great talk though!

PHP object mocking framework world: PHPUnit and Prophecy
It is an interesting topic, but sometimes it seemed chaotic: "blablabla" is never something useful in a presentation. It is the second talk about this I see on a PHP Benelux conference, and the topic is "alienating", but very powerful. Great speaker, but slowing down would help a lot.

PHP 7, PHPUnit 5, and Beyond
Summary: PHP 5 is bad, PHP 7 is good. And Sebastian Bergmann will be happy once PHP 5 is gone. Hang in there, Sebastian, we're almost there!

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Building a New PHP Reflection Library
Interesting talk. Looking into it as an option to "unparse" classes, although I'm not sure yet if this would be the right fit. Surely amazing to see how you are working with other libraries to make the whole environment better, and how some strange problems would come up one would not think about when starting a library like this. I would have liked some more examples on how to use this in some more complex use cases, but I guess I'm going to dive into it to experience it some more. Kudos! --- Addressed to Nomad PHP/Cal: As this was brought as an online video, the slides missed some more information, and it felt more like a podcast than a video cast. Sometimes one is looking quite some time to a certain slide. Gifs simply don't work. Might be interesting to add that to the guidelines for future speakers, as I'm completely sure this slideshow would work perfectly fine for an irl meetup. Also, the video seems to be out of sync, sound is coming in quite some seconds after the video.
