PHP is evil and wants to eat your babies: A look at defensive programming techniques in PHP
Well presented and certainly highlighted some security issues I had not previously been aware of. Could have perhaps been a little more concise however.

Expert Troubleshooting: Resolving MySQL Problems quickly
Again, felt like a sales pitch. I think a high level overview to Percona toolkit at the beginning would have gone a long way rather than diving straight in. Too much information covered at a very fast pace.

A great talk with practical knowledge and information to back up and illustrate the real life implementation of CD.

Barely Enough Design
A good talk with lots of concepts covered. I felt that some more in depth discussion of some of these points with practical examples was needed to help illustrate these ideas.

RESTful APIs with Laravel 5's Doc Block Controller Annotations
For me this particular time slot did not offer a talk of interest to me. I choose to go to this talk as I thought I may have got some insight into Larvel as a product. I felt this talk was however an extremely niche topic and therefore little value to me. I personally am not a fan of annotations used in this fashion. I was glad that the speaker was open to discussing the disadvantages of this approach. Overall the structure of the talk had a good flow and was well delivered. It just wasn't for me.

Hexagonal Architecture in DDD
A very good talk with good illustrations/visualizations. As a side note; I thought the ads on the slides were distracting and took attention away from the content.
