This was a very interesting session. Props to Brian for taking a difficult subject and breaking it down and making it sound easy.

Rickroll To Go With PHP, WURFL, and Other Open Source Tools
I missed this session at ZendCon so I was glad I got to catch (most of) it at here. Brian did a great job.

Security-Centered Design: Don't Just Plan for Security; Design For It
Excellent session. Chris is obviously knowledgeable in the area of security but he's also a good speaker. Unlike some speakers I've seen at other conferences, his presentation style does not get in the way of his material.

Simple Scaling Every Developer Should Know
Even though I missed the first half of this presentation, I still learned enough in the second half to say that this was an excellent session. Her coverage of APC made this worth the price of admission. =C=

Role of a PHP user group
Exactly HOW is this like the Digg keynote at DPC? It sounds like a great session but that comment from an anonymous coward really has me confused. +1

The Next Generation of IIS & Windows Optimization for PHP
Some good content. I'm pleased with where things are headed but not happy with the speed. * Multiple versionf of PHP * Beta versions of apps * FRAMEWORKS!+++ These need to be addressed quickly. =C=

Intro to Powershell
The presentation was interesting but I could have done without the unix bashing. Unix is command shell processing is still around because it's still useful. it's great that MSFT is finally catching up but you really don't need to tear others down to make yourself look good. (A lesson most of us learned in high school) Oh and when you ask for questions and someone actually asks one, it's good form to answer it and not simply insult the person asking. Overall, I learned something about Powershell and while I don't have a use for it at the moment, it is still interesting. =C=

Microsoft Research
very interesting session. I didn't follow the math at ALL but it was still interesting. I would have rather spent the entire session on Gazelle though, that seemed to be the most interesting topic in this session. =C=

CodePlex Foundation
I missed the first half of this session and only came in when things were getting heated. I do respect that there will be differences of opinions between attendees and MSFT presents. However, since you've spent a lot of time and money to get us out here, I would suggest that, when you disagree with us, don't argue. Listen, and then off-line decide whether you agree with the opinion expressed. It's ok that you don't agree with us but it's not ok to simply argue with us. All in all, I think this session may have been the most interesting and not for the content but because of the interaction. :) =C=

Microsoft DPE Field - "Lets Talk"
This was one of the best sessions of the conference because it was a discussion. Josh and Peter did not talk at us, they talked with us. If the entire conference was sessions like this I think it would be a lot more useful.

The PHP ecosystem, or lack thereof
I swear we could have spent the entire morning on this topic. Great job Marco for being the agitator. =C=

This was another great session because it was interactive. it wasn't just a presentation or sales pitch, they asked questions and listened. =C=

Reg-Ex Fu
As always Juliette never fails to deliver. This is a no-holds-barred look at RegEx. it is not your typical conference session. You MUST pay attention and it helps if you participate.

Passing the Joel Test in the PHP World
OMGOMGOMG It's LORNA! :) Setting aside for the moment the fact that Lorna is one of my best friends in the PHP community, this is a great talk. Lorna delivers it with authority and humor.

Technical Debt
If you are a technical lead, regardless of the language your team works in, you need to see this talk and understand the concepts presented. (If you don't understand them, you have to question why you are in a leadership position.) Liz takes a topic that is probably less popular among developers than unit testing, and presents it clearly and with passion. This was a great session.

Stress-free deployment
I love the fact that Rob's talk is centered in the real world. He isn't a purist, "everything must be phing". He showed a good mix of using existing tools and "roll your own" when it makes sense.

Technical Writing 101
How can you not like a session with scatological humor? This was a great session. Anyone who is currently writing blog posts, articles, books or anything else technical needs to listen to this session. As always, Liz never fails to entertain and inform.

XHProf and WonderProxy
This was a great session. I love the fact that finally someone is celebrating the things they did wrong. If you aren't doing things wrong, you will never do things right. Good job Paul!

DPC Conference Social
It was loud and crowed, but the loud was forgivable because it was a lot of developers talking about PHP and the crowded is forgivable because all the people were developers. I had a great time, and talked with friends new and old.

Implementing OAuth
Great talk, good content. I would have rather had more info on OAuth2 and less OAuth1. As always though, Lorna never fails to entertain.

Introduction to Continuous Integration with Jenkins
This is a good talk. You have the content and it is obvious that you know your material. Your only problem is that you really need to work on your timing. Practice a bit more before you give the talk and make sure that you can fill time time slot.

Eating ElePHPants
This was a great talk. Larry is an interesting speaker. i've seen him give technical and non-technical talks and he delivers both with equal aplomb. This talk gave a lot of insight into the process of turning the Drupal ship and what is driving Drupal 8. This is a great talk for anyone using Drupal, or considering Drupal. It's also a great talk for anyone who wants to move a large project in a new direction. If you get a chance, make SURE you see this talk. =C=

PHP at Density and Scale
I've now seen this talk twice so I am beginning to be able to watch it without my head exploding. David is one of thos epoepl ei describe as scary smart. This talk is a good example of that. This is not a beginner talk. This talk is for advanced developers and dives deep. Think you know a bit about scaling PHP, come attend this talk. :)

Turning Your Code Into a Company: The Parts They Don't Tell You.
HOLY CRAP! This was a great talk. I go to a lot of conferences and see a lot of keynotes but this one stands out above the rest. I've seen Luke speak before about FoxyCart and each time I do, I learn a little more and am encouraged to keep powering on with my own "hobby, soon to be business". If you are a developer building a company as a side project, YOU NEED TO SEE THIS TALK!

No More Overtime; or, How To Train Your Manager
I've seen this talk several times now. Each time I see it I learn something new. This talk should be presented as the commencement speech at EVERY college of computing, EVERY YEAR. It's that good. Paul is a phenomenal speaker, one of if not the best speakers in the PHP community.

Templates with Twig - Easier than you Think
I've only used Twig once. I wish I had seen this talk BEFORE I implemented it. Margaret does an excellent job of walking developers through how to implement Twig and make it useful. This is a great talk for anyone who is starting to use twig, or anyone currently using it. (I learned what I did wrong and why I had problems.) Margaret is a great speaker. I love the energy she brings to the stage in each of her talks. I never miss a chance to see her speak and neither should you.

The New Revolution
I am in awe of Samantha's ability to present talks. I've seen her do technical and now I've seen her do a keynote. In both cases, she makes me care about what she is talking about and I always leave wanting to learn more and be better. Well done.

Monkeys in the Machine
This was an amazing talk! First, Eric is a great speaker. Second, the concepts that he is showcasing are very cool. I love advanced talks like this because it pushes me to listen just to understand. Now top all of this off with the coolest useless demo I think I've ever seen in any talk. I am a huge fan of useless demos and Eric has made it an artform. Put all of those together in a room and you've got an amazing talk.

Asynchronous Programming Fundamentals
As always, Samantha hit it out of the park. It wasn't what I expected, it was ever so much more. Great overview of where PHP is with regards to Async, What Async is, and where things are headed. I love that she gave a shout out to three of the people that are pushing the PHP Async envelope.
