Application Modeling with Graph Database
Was a good presentation of graph databases, and examples were both well suited for illustrating the database functionality, and showing common use cases.

From POX to HATEOAS, A Real Company's Journey Building a RESTful API
Good presentation, very open discussion about the decisions made developing a REST API. Seems like the FoxyCart API may be a go-to example of design in the future.

Building APIs with Silex
It was early, so perhaps I was sleeping, but it seemed like this was more a 'building prototype apps responsibility using router focused frameworks' than Silex focused. Not that I'm complaining about that - I just haven't used Silex in the past, and don't feel I know much more about it. That said, the talk was a great example about building API focused applications and sharing the codebase between the web and the command line.

Rating: 4 of 5

PHP and the NoSQL
Good overview of the nosql options out there. Some code examples would be great.

Introduction to Cougar Framework: a new REST API
Really interesting talk on why they wanted to build their own API framework, and a nice overview of the feature set.

APIs at the Speed of Thought
Really good live demo (great conference wifi) of using Apigility's UI to generate some configuration and skeleton code, then showing how to connect it all to an exsisting codebase.

Reframing The Problem
Would like to have seen a bit more on the solution. Good talk, and kept things moving at the end of the day. Not for those with clown phobias.

Functional PHP
Examples were a good way to show the concepts applied to real world cases, would have liked to see more emphasis on them and less on the history (although I know that's likely a hard balance to strike).

Rapid Application Development With Symfony2
Good talk overall, slides could have been more readable, but I was in the back.

The Wonderful World of APIs
Question for those with feedback on the sample app - while (I thought) a novel approach, do you feel it would be better to explore some of these APIs on a individual basis? A simple login example (not one tied to an overall application), a standalone use of a media conversion API, etc? Would that be a good way to remove the some of the heaviness? Perhaps also make it easier to follow along / be hands on?

Writing Workers For Scalable Applications
Solid introduction to the concept of workers (and queues), as well as a very common use case to show the need.

Terrifying. Also, the topics Keith brought up were a bit frightening too.

How to Cope When It All Hits the Fan
Great talk on both dealing with technical problems, and communication problems. Could be a keynote. Very polished delivery.

Building for the PHP Command Line Interface
Great talk and overview on how to think about using PHP from the CLI, and the significant set of tools that exist to make that easier. Definitely a worthwhile talk for any PHP developer.

Testing and You: The Art of Software Communication
I'm not sure it's possible to overstate the awesomeness of this talk. Great approachable talk about testing concepts in general and the value of testing software. Smooth presentation style, confident and humorous. Great talk and speaker.

The art of transduction
Good overview of the concept, building up to it with more familiar tequniques. Great practical example at the end as well. Pretty sure I'll be using this soon.

Employing CQRS and Event Sourcing to Build an MVP
Really honest and helpful look at a real-world project. Have been considering using event sourcing, and this gave a lot to think about.

From Docker to Production
A very good and practical talk on how to get started using Docker in a production environment.

Great talk. Excellent examples. Clear presentation and takeaways that can be useful in improving code right away.

Building to spec - the OpenAPI Spec and PHP
What Matt lacks in height, he definitely makes up in humor. His API spec talk was exactly the right tone for an end of day talk. He kept things moving as he showed an example spec and the tooling that could turn it into documentation, language specific SDKs, mock APIs, etc. Probably could have gone a bit deeper, but it was a short talk. Which, let's be honest, is fitting.

Build a SPA with Vue JS
A great overview, with very good pacing for a workshop. I was impressed to learn this was not just his first workshop, but first conference talk.

Getting Kids Involved in Programming
Great talk covering the programs / apps / toys / games / books that can help teach programming concepts to a younger audience. Very helpful in giving an understanding of what's out there, and in what ways they can be used.

You Dont Know Git
Great talk with very accessible tips you can start using right away. As always, Jason's presentation style is polished.

Refactoring Legacy Code
Really good overview of refactoring, as well as the best order of attack. Would have liked a little deeper dive into some real code examples.
Rating: 4 of 5 
(21.Sep.2018)
Developing SOLID applications with PHP
Good overview of SOLID principles. I think more real-world example code would have been helpful - more like the model class example, and less of the standard OOP animal examples.

Evented Architectures
Excellent talk and Jesse is both passionate and knowledgeable about the topic. A very down to earth look at how you could change from the standard linear perspective of PHP applications, why you might want to, and how PHP has been able to do this for a while. Organizers, accept this talk if it's submitted, you won't be sorry.
