Beyond PHP: It’s Not (Just) About the Code
Very good talk. We learned a lot of practical information that we'll be able to implement immediately in our own workflow. Thanks! Jochem Maatwebsite

Integrating Doctrine with Laravel
What I missed in this talk was really a good comparison between AR and DM or specifically Doctrine and Eloquent. It left me with feeling Doctrine was a major step backwards, which can't really be the case. But as someone who has never worked with it, many of its workings seemed alien. It really seemed aimed at existing doctrine users and I was hoping ( perhaps in vain, retrospectively ) it would also provide some insight for people that don't use it at all. But I guess a lightning talk is too short to really properly talk about this. Also, use a different color scheme for your code examples, even with the lights dimmed a lot of it was very hard to read from the back. There wasn't enough contrast.

Feature Induced Happiness
At first the talk seemed to be prepared really badly. But I soon realized the speaker was just too nervous. Content-wise it actually was a good presentation, but it just didn't come across as one. But it is to be expected from anyone first presentation. If you take that into consideration, it wasn't that bad. And the speaker did much better in the question round. I really hope Xander will continue speaking because with some simple tips next time could be much better. For example: - The screen behind you is for the audience, not for you. Don't look at it. Ever! Except at the start to verify it shows the presentation. If you need it as a guide, make sure it show on your laptop. - If someone tells you to talk into the mic and you're not comfortable standing statically behind your computer, ask for a mobile mic. There were enough. Now you lost almost half the audience because they could barely hear you. The nervousness is something that goes away with practice. Don't feel ashamed about it, 90% of the people in the audience would never want to trade places because they would be to afraid. Best wishes, Jochem

In-depth Laravel Tips and Tricks
I've been at other talks for Andreas and he seems really good at compressing large amounts of information in one simple understandable presentation. My head was spinning afterwards, but I still gained great new insights of the talk.

Coding Like a Girl
Great presentation! Not something I would have expected at such a conference and perhaps that says it all. I just wanted to add that perhaps most can be gained in this cause by motivating girls ( and other minorities in tech ) at an early age. I know there are some project in the Netherlands doing this at the moment. So I wish you good luck as an advocate in this struggle. Eventually we'll get there!

The use of multiple Laravel applications within a huge sports platform
Great presentation. I was impressed to see what Laravel can actually do in large scale application. And it doesn't really get any larger than this.

Q&A with Taylor Otwell
Always nice to see that the legendary Taylor is still, not just at heart, first and foremost a develop like all of us. And I think he was spot on as to the reason why Laravel might win against other frameworks ( the enthusiasm to use components from the community and other frameworks )

Sharing Laravel
Excellent talk! We've always avoided mixing laravel in with legacy code. I've personally always wanted to rebuilt everything. And rarely had time, budget or opportunity to do so. This approach is the best of both worlds. And we've already planned out several ways to do this in the near future.

Portable Environments with Vagrant
Great talk! I've been discouraged with vagrant and puppet before. Somehow it never worked as easily as it sounds. At least not for me :) But I'm eager to try again, especially with Ansible. So thanks for that. Also, between all the macbooks ( and the occasional thinkpad ) it's always nice to see another Ubuntu user.

Comprehensive Validation with Laravel 4
Great talk and good insights about validation. I almost felt sorry for him after listening to Taylor later that day. But this approach is still very much valid, especially in situation where it's not about forms. In general your fast way of talking meant I didn't always catch every word you said, but that's a minor issue. But seriously man... You really need your own Mic ;)

The State of Laravel
Absolutely brilliant! I love what your doing with Laravel. Love Socialize ( Slightly mad, because I was planning something similar ;) ) The folder structure needs some getting used to, but for the most part I do see the benefits.

Decoupling the Model from the Framework
Overal a good talk. I found it hard to follow sometimes without slide to help. At first I was afraid you'd lose me in the first few minutes, but I quickly got caught up in the excellent narrative. Still.. Next time, use the slides. Perhaps use a blank one for the parts were you want us to visualize without code ?

PHP Annotations: They exist!
Rafael! I absolutely love seeing you speak on stage! I was at pfcongress a few years ago and loved that talk, but I think this talk was even better. Still not sure about annotations, but the talk was excellent :)

The Code Manifesto: Empowering our Community
Very good talk! Actually learned something about myself as well. I too have been unconsciously biased before. That's something I will be more alert to in the future. I wanted to react to the first question from the audience but couldn't really find a way to word what I had in my mind at the time. But I guess what it all comes too is that we should all take the individual into account. It's about the sum of the parts and not the parts in itself. It's not about being male or female, Black or white etc.. These things in itself carry no weight but together they result in an individual. And that complet e picture is what makes someone right or wrong for a job for example. Does that make any sense? Hope so :)

Design How Your Objects Talk Through Mocking
Good talk. I did get lost along the way sometimes. Perhaps because I have very little experience with TDD, never mind BDD. But you got your points across excellently and I've learned a lot.

Lisp
Very interesting. Not something I was expecting at all at Laracon. Still not sure if any of it will really help me in any way in future. But still very interesting.

Things I Believe Now That I’m Old
The perfect ending to an excellent event! Loved everything about it. I was surprised to find out that your bad review was at another talk I attended at PfCongress 2012. Also a very good talk! I do remember reading that comment and just thinking it must have been written by someone who slept throught the talk. The quotes of the other speakers were also a very nice touch and a way for us to look back at 3 excellent days

As always Matt a talk that's both inspirational and often funny. Great work! And I still think you're a nice guy ;)

The Laravel Ecosystem
The talk in itself wasn't bad at all. Sure Dries was nervous, but most of us would be just as or more nervous in his place. I do think that the content was mostly interesting for newbies or managers and not so much for experienced Laravel developers. But don't worry about it, just keep doing talks and it will improve quickly. I know I personally would not have been able to do it half as good

Frontin' like a back-er
Great talk! It seems I'm part of the minority that actually likes working with javascript next to php. I loved your take on it! Accept JS christ as your lord and savior!

Advanced Git for developers
Really in depth git stuff. As our company's resident git guru, I mostly discovered I've barely scratched the surface. Yes I use "git add ." a lot! And bisect? Never heard about it! Also... YAY a fellow Linux user! Really nice to see between all the Apple madness

Whistleblowing 101
Nice talk, and some very important issues. However it was at times really hard to follow. Maybe add just a few bulletpoint slides next time ? I think a lot of the audience was lost around the same time the speaker was lost herself. That is too bad, because the content was great!

Min-maxing software costs
Totally not what I expected, and that was great! Easily one of the best talks of the conference. It also tied in great with many of earlier talks

Package development
Good talk. Nothing new for me personally, but I think that people that are just starting out with packages found it extremely helpfull.

Things Laravel made me believe
Very very good talk, beginning to end. I still consider Ross Tuck's keynote last year to be the best talk I've even seen, but this one is a close second. Loved every minute of it. I have this urge to sign up to laracasts all of a sudden...

Keynote
I really like the relaxed and down to earth way Taylor does his presentations. It really feels just as if you're having a work presentation with a colleague who is showing the work he has done on your mutual project. Also, the work that has been done.... You basicly fixed every issue we've had over the past year on our biggest project. things we've now all done by extending the base functionality of Laravel 5.1 are now all present by default and in a much nicer and easier way, as always.

Bringing User Stories To Life
Nice presentation. Unfortunately due to the bad sound a lot of the humor was lost on most of the audience. Which was a shame. I love the out-of-the-box thinking with the cartoons and we are planning to try it on a few future projects.

Embrace Chatops, Stop Installing Deployment Software
Awesome presentation! As a developer and serveradmin myself, I had mixed feelings about chatops at first. But I clearly had the wrong idea. We are definitely going to try this out in the near future.

How To Avoid Database Migration Hell
The presentation in itself was good and Edward explained everything quite clearly despite being obviously nervous. So perhaps I should've rated higher, but what I want to make clear is simply how important it is to know your target audience or to be prepared if the level of knowledge is very different from what you expected. You asked two very important questions at the start: - How many people here have used migrations - How many people have used seeds More than 90% of the audience raised their hands. And at that point I hoped you would've just skipped all the entry level stuff and headed to more advanced cases. The title itself is probably the most important reason for feeling let down. It suggests that it was about the edge cases, where the migrations fail or where you want to do advanced migrations or anything other than migrations 101.

No Excuse User Research
Very nice presentation! Very clear and to the point. For us personally it didn't provide a lot of new information. But despite that the quality was very high and we still got a lot of good info out of it.

Please Understand Me
Nice and interesting talk! It's nice to recognize all the problems I had with previous employers and see how it's far from unique and also to understand better what their side in that was. But it's even nicer to recognize how none of these situations exist where I've been working for the past few years. My boss was sitting beside us and he agreed wholeheartedly with you as well. Of course it helps that he is a developer as well ;)

Making the Most Out of MySQL
Loved the talk! One of my favourites this year as well Good info and it even helped bring us closer to a solution we had recently in on of our projects. What I also would like to add is how amazed I was by Gabi herself. We were at Laraconeu a few years ago where we saw her ( also very nice ) presentation "Coding Like a Girl" which was about the inequalities that still exist for women in the coding world. I'm amazed how different she was this year. And I don't just mean physically ( although all I can say there is "Teach me, Master!" ). In 2014 she was nervous and shaky and also her accent was quite hard to understand sometimes. And despite all that she got her presentation accross to the audience and made me and my colleagues think about a subject we had never even realised was that big an issue. This year, she was a rock. Confident, clear and I had no trouble at all following her despite a minor accent. And all that with a much larger audience. To come so far in so short a time is impressive I wouldn't even know how to begin...

Curing The Common Loop (With Collection Pipelines)
Very nice! Very good and too the point tips and I loved the live refactoring part. My only criticism about the talk is it being the last one of the conference. This would have been good at any time except the ending. But that's something the organisation needs to think about I think. It just left me feeling as if it wasn't done yet. Unlike Jeffrey's talk last year
