Dependency Injection Smells
Could use some more practice speaking. I also felt there were some things missing, like when DI is used where it should _not_ be used. Expected a bit more here.

Getting your toolbox together
I expected a bit more complete set of tools here, talk was mainly about Vagrent and Chef, but you need more than that to develop software.

RESTful Services Made Easy with ZF2
I enjoyed this tutorial a lot. Good and thorough introduction to REST and ZF2, although it could have gone a bit faster for my taste. This resulted in not being able to actually do anything. Nevertheless, Rob Allen seems like a very calm guy who really knows his stuff :)

Migrating a Zend Framework application to ZF 2
Having worked with ZF1 and Symfony2, yesterdays tutorial by Rob Allen was my first glimpse of ZF2. After attending Bart McLeod's talk, I've a decent understanding of how ZF2 works, and that migrating a ZF1 project to ZF2 isn't something to take lightly ;)

PHPCR: A better way to structure your content
Although it was clear that Willem-Jan Zijderveld didn't have much talk experience (I believe this was his first), he pulled it off just fine. I would have liked to see PHPCR in action, but there's only so much you can do in 10/15 minutes.

Redis For The Everyday Developer
Very impressive and smooth talk! Clearly Ross Tuck has done this before :) I also got a little ashamed that a while ago I needed an in-memory cache, looked at Redis and decided to go with Memcached. Not that it was a bad choice by itself, but knowing now what else Redis can do, I'm seriously considering switching!

Uncon - Symfony 2 as a REST-API
Nice presentation, well spoken and good info. About 7 minutes in it was clear it was a beginner talk, nothing new to me, so I walked out. (Sorry for that!) But that's nothing negative towards you :)

Task Based UIs
I was thrown off by the "UIs" in the title, and the phrase is repeated in the description. I know a bit about CQRS and was attracted by that UI side, but unfortunately the talk contained almost nothing on that subject. To be fair, we were warned at the start of the talk, but I'm not that big on standing up and leaving. The talk itself wasn't bad, it explained the basics of CQRS well. But is wasn't awesome either. It could've been a bit more fluent (just practice!), and maybe add some sugar to it (in stead of plainly explaining what it is). And definitively change the title/description to reflect the talk better. PS: I hope I'm not received as harsh, the (negative) feedback is meant to help!

Decorating Applications with Stack
Excellent talk of an interesting subject. I really like the idea behind stack and the usage of middleware for http requests/responses, something you more in other languages. It did feel like it wasn't really mature and I as surprised to heard it probably doesn't have a bright future (due to PSR-7). But the idea of using middleware (for other area's) is inspiring!

How Not Using PHP Can Make You Better At PHP

Small Uncontrolled Experiments
A really impressive talk on an inspiring subject. I've already started some little experiments and am bound to loose control! There where some moments where the talk felt a bit chaotic, as if it wasn't well rehearsed, especially at the beginning. But this wasn't the first talk by Mathias I've seen and others were perfectly fluent. So maybe the social the night before is to blame, or that he had some voice issues for which he apologized in advanced. All in all definitely a talk to see if you want to work on you soft skills!

High Performance PHP
I really enjoyed this talk! Good presentation, clear subject and fluently done. I especially like the message to not try to outsmart a compiler by thinking up some generic solution to address scaling issues, but actually pick up a profiler and fix your own mess :) I would highly recommend this talk to anyone who's interested in improving scalability! I'm also looking forward to some future features of Recki-CT, especially the one compiling PHP to PHP (with optimizations), I'm very interested to see what some of my projects would look like after it's done :)

Lists, a secret love story
I especially liked the fact that Toon was clearly exited about the subject. It's always fun to see that people really in to functional programming become these mad giggling characters, drooling over the elegance of what they create, and I mean that in a good way! It's always great to see such passion! Although I have no experience with functional programming, I could follow everything just fine. It was clear and well presented. Together with some other talks it inspired me to start playing with some LISP as well. Ow, and I liked the style of asking a question and answering it yourself. I really completes the mad scientist thing :) Keep that in and keep it up!

Say What? Ubiquitous Language and You!
It was a thorough, clear and fluent talk about the subject. Beau is definitively a great speaker. I did feel like the actual content could have fit in a talk half it's length. There was quite some repetition where I felt like "yes, I got it already". Maybe throw in some examples, some information on common pitfalls, and for developers it would be great to see some actual code that reflects the story.

Raffles & Closing Remarks
It was a shame the movie crashed at a certain point, and the magic show didn't really match with the audience IMHO. Maybe if it where of drastically higher quality, or more of a humor/comedy style, it would have been a lot better. That aside, the presentation was well in order, the sponsors were appropriately thanked, and the raffle was smooth!

Down The Rabbit Hole​
The talk itself wasn't bad, maybe a bit too "american" for my taste. But it wasn't great either: The subject is one that's kind of a theme among keynotes the last year (or 2), and kind of plainly presented if I compare it to others. Though I fully agree with the message, I wasn't as inspired as I think I should have been.

Five Weird Tricks to Become a Better Developer
Very inspirational message. I can really relate to making yourself a better person will lead you to be better at your job, whatever that job may be. I did feel the talk could be a bit more structured, a bit more fluent going from one "trick" to the next.

Live Streaming 101
I'm not at all into streaming or any other kind of camera/video stuff, but I liked how it's actually pretty easy to set this kind of thing up. It was a well presented talk. I liked the touch of live-streaming during the talk.

Using Circuit Breakers in PHP
Nice explanation of what circuit breakers are, and nice example of how to solve the performance issues that come with that many circuit breakers in place. I think when this is more prepared, has some slides, some more explanation on the architecture that lead to the need of so many circuit breakers and a bit more relaxed presentation, this could be a great technical talk!

How to Migrate Anything with DDD
Like most, this was totally _not_ what I expected. I strongly suggest to change the title, and have the description mention Baleen. I usually keep away from these "product talks" as I'm not looking for that kind of info/inspiration at conferences. This negative (or at least not positive) first impression really hurts the talk. I do think Baleen looks promising and hope that developers will start picking it up. I also found it well presented and it shows Gabriel really stands by everything he said.

Extracting wisdom from stupidity
Great talk on a very difficult subject! Really enjoyed the (high) level of humor, and the connections with our day-to-day lives as developers. I can clearly recognize the different types of thinking and agree that it's important to realize what your brain is doing at certain times. I think the content could be improved by having more examples or ties to our regular lives, and the presentation could be improved by less falling back to your screen/notes.

How to effectively grow a development team
Nice talk, I liked the topic and the content! Very interesting subject, and IMHO a very important one. Little point to improve: We were in a small room, and sometimes you were talking very loud. I guess that would work in a big conference room, but adapt to your surroundings :)

The way we teach tech
Very entertaining talk! Liked the anime theme, well chosen. IMO it could have been spread out more (most was in the beginning). There were good strong points on how to improve learning and teaching, but it felt a bit light. I loved the PR review example, maybe put 1 or 2 more like them in.
