A Hands-on Introduction to Writing Unit Tests Using PHPUnit
Harrie offered a fantastic introduction for any developer looking to get his or her feet wet with PHPUnit and PHP. Progressing logically from the most basic tests to the fundamentals of mocking objects and database fixtures, Harrie packed a ton of great information in to three short hours.

PHP 5.5: The New Bits
Davey's pace was a little rushed at first, but he did slow himself down about a third of the way through the presentation. If there is a developer hell, I think it would involve explaining generators to a crowd of people not familiar with them, but he managed it with grace. This was a very good rundown of the new features in 5.5. Extremely useful and practical info!

Architecting with Queues
Excellent, practical use-case of queues and distributed processing as scaling tools. It was really awesome to have a peek in to azure as well, that was definitely new for me! The slides were a teeny bit code-heavy, but didn't distract from Sandy's presentation in the least.

Templates with Twig - Easier than you Think
Great content and fabulous energy! There are some areas that could be improved: For example, when taking about alternate syntax, taking a moment to demonstrate it would help out stick better in the audience's mind. Like I said, the energy is fantastic, but better pacing and pauses will help get your content across.
