Hadoop and PHP
I came into this talk a complete beginner to Hadoop. So I'm not sure the talk was aimed at me. Michael is clearly very knowledgeable and covered a lot of ground in the talk. I would have loved to have seen a common data example that could be followed through, culminating in how to interact with it using Phresto. As a summary of services the talk was great.

Discovering & solving performance issues
Great summary of tools available. Might be nice to have some animated gifs or short videos to show the tools working, and practical use cases. Maybe start with an example dummy company that's having loads of issues and show how to triage their problems using the tools.

The Mindful Developer: Being Less Busy & More Productive
Well paced talk, with some great tips on tackling the daily workload. I'm not sure I will be having a cold shower or getting up at 5:30 though! :) What was the chrome app (for receiving singular tasks) called which was described by a member of the audience during the Q&A section at the end?
