The Secret Life of APIs
I'm not sure I agree with some of the the development methododies suggested. Speaker seemed to be nerveous, and therefore speaking to fast, which also made him difficult to follow in the back of the room. But I'm sure that will improve with experience.

Micro-services vs. the Distributed Monolith
Great talk, especially the part about microservices, which was new to me. It even gave me some ideas on improving our product, which currently is, according to this talk, a monolith trying to look like a bunch of (micro)services. Very enlightening.

The Stateful ElePHPant
Brillant way of approaching the topic, and having a live demo that actually worked. ;-) It did however remind me very much of a workflow engine I wrote over a decade ago, so for me it wasn't really clear why this choice of topic.

CQRS & EventSourcing in the Wild
As someone new to both event sourcing and CQRS, the material was clearly presented, understandable, and from a real-world point of view, highlighting the many pitfalls of using it. By far the best talk of the day.

Tech Communities as Fandoms
Great talk. As someone considered "a core member" according to Jess' definition in the community around our OSS product, I did recognize a lot of the points raised. That alone allowed me to take a step back, and see if there are things that I can improve by doing things differently.

We need a bigger boat - Introduction to application scaling
Good speaker, entertaining, able to keep the audience engaged. Some topics a perhaps bit too much related to the actual situation of the speaker, and therefore not always spot on for a wider audience. For example the latency issue when using a synchroneous DB cluster. If you have that problem, you either selected the wrong solution for your problem, or the wrong hardware. It is not an argument not to use such a cluster...

Looking after your Mental Health, a guide for software developers
Good to see this is being discussed, as many in our profession, been there, done that, have the medication. ;-) Improvement point: try to speak to the audience more, instead of reading your text from a screen.

Climbing the Abstract Syntax Tree
As always, very good. My entire Uni course in compiler design flashed by in less than an hour. Where were you 30-odd years ago when I was given a syntax specification, an input source file, and the assignment "write a lexer, parser and compiler (in pascal !), and when done, run the source file and hand in the results"... ;-)

Optimizing PHP-FPM for Production
Very useful, most of the PHP-FPM stuff was already known, as we've recently switched, but most servers still run apache. After this session, I've learned some in-depth study of nginx is in order. ;-)
