The lost art of simplicity
Good keynote catching an important aspect we sometimes overlook in our pursuit of end goals. Poor slides compensated for by a great presentation.

RDBMS in the social networks age
Very in-depth, bordering on head-exploding, but essential for the advanced developer.
Rating: 2 of 5 
Great and knowledgable presentation ruined by poor flip chart. Should have been on the other side of the room so that she didn't block the camera. Almost impossible to read handwriting. However as taken as explanation at high level of PRCE it's fine.

Database optimisation
Started slow and SEO-y, then demonstrably got stronger and more relevant.

Profiling PHP Applications
Some old friends in Xdebug joined by some CLI tools I wasn't familiar with.

Opening Keynote - You Are A Designer
Very amusing, interesting, and true.

Reverse caching proxies: Varnish or Nginx?
This was an intermediate talk covering off much of what I already knew, but it had some strong pearls of wisdom (especially on logging filtering in Varnish and how to make nginx play nicely with nodeJS web sockets) so I got what I wanted out of it. The presentation was easy, entertaining, and Thijs was clearly enthusiastic. A winning combination and I look forward to more like this.

Working with Webhooks
A well-balanced and interesting talk. Webhooks seem simple and obvious but they have hidden depth which Lorna walked us through clearly and easily
