Device Advice
A bit lengthy introduction, but a good reminder to the degree of difficulty involved in mobile testing, because of the huge device and browser landscape. The talk gave a good overview of available methods for device testing, and presented a handy step by step list on how to adapt testing in your organisation. I expected a bit more in-depth examples and demonstrations of tools and possible debugging aids. Also, the author seems too ideologic in his thinking to include all sorts of feature phones in testing (sadly, a big part of the device lab pictures mostly contains this type of phone). I think you should consider a more pragmatic approach, setting the baseline a bit higher (starting with low-end smartphones). Did you recently meet anyone who uses the internet on a feature phone?

Debugging: past, present and future
I'm using xdebug extensively, but still learned a thing or two about some features I didn't know existed. Some feedback about the idea to "step back" in debugging: How about being able to replay execution up to the previous breakpoint instead?

React.js: Super-fast Single Page Web Applications
A fast pased introduction to ReactJS, efficient talk including some live demos. I asked about real world applications afterwards. Apart from todomvc he suggested to take a look at Instagram but also a CMS built on Node (was it perhaps Relax?)

A year of continuous delivery
This talk covered a lot of techniques and practices used at nationalevacaturebank.nl, mainly in the field of building and testing. Although the reasons were not always clear, it was still quite interesting. We went into details quite quick, I was missing a good introduction with a few main questions. I would also suggest to omit some low-level details (like the buildscript internals) and explain more of the reasons behind these practises.

The Road to Technical Team Lead
Very well presented and valuable talk. Gave me some great insights into my current role and recognisable issues that come along with it. Thanks!

Integrating Bounded Contexts
The talk was more about domain event examples and practical tips. I missed the broader perspective and overall point. A knowledgeable speaker, but speaking (spanish-)english that fast made it difficult to follow sometimes.

Deploying PHP 7
He started off saying everyone should already know about the performance improvements, but spent some time showing the benefits anyways. Good to be reminded. ;) The rest of the talk contained many practical details concerning the migration and optimization, very useful. Some details where probably a bit too specific for this talk (pages, NUMA). Overall a valuable presentation.

Being functional in PHP
For someone deep in the OO world, this talk is a good introduction to all the things functional programming is about. Although I'm sure I would have to revisit this subject until I know how and where to apply these principles. The speaker was very calm and easy to listen to. I particulary liked that quote: "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world"

Getting started with ReactPHP
A practical talk explaining a simple example app with non-trivial features. Demonstrated the benefits to traditional syncrhonous applications clearly. I would have liked a quick comparison of ReactPHP versus existing solutions, the current development status and examples of real world applications.

Things I was unprepared for as a lead developer
Enthousiastic speaker, presented very openly by sharing his own mistakes and experiences. Complements Ben Waine's talk well by looking at it from a slightly different angle (being unprepared). What I'll take home from this: being a lead developer is as much about people as it is about tech.

Microservices: Packs small, plays BIG!
Experienced and sympathetic speaker. Clear overview and argumentation for using microservices compared to traditional monolithic software.

How I Built A Video Game using Event Sourcing
This talk offers good insight about how event sourcing fits typical use cases in game development. I think the balance between high level overview and diving into practical examples was good within the constraints of a 45 minute talk. Well presented by an experienced speaker. Also reminded me about the attractions of game development, working in a world of business software. Felt like a relaxing break after already two days of information overload. :)

How We Talk About Tech
Excellent talk, very well polished, informational, intriguing, and going out with a bang. We nailed "Never stop learning" to our developer whiteboard. ;)
