CouchDB, PouchDB and Offline-Tolerant Apps
This talk made me really excited to starting doing something with CouchDB. As someone who had heard of the fabled "no-sql" style of databases, but who never "got it", this talk really helped make it click. Lorna showed off these exciting pieces of software in an engaging way, very accessible to those new to the technology.

M-M-M-Monads!
It is said that once you understand Monads, you lose the ability to explain them to others. Christopher proved that saying wrong, because I really feel like I'm starting to get it now.

Bruce Lee Driven Development
This talk was funny and uplifting, which is pretty much its own reward. Showing the image of the "find X" problem made me very sad about my choice of wardrobe, because I have that very image on a t-shirt and I decided not to wear it. It is great to hear other people re-iterate "take what works, discard the rest" because it's very true and very often forgotten in favor of blind adherence to ideas.

Review unknown code with static analysis
I feel the initial comment about "having to cram an hour and a half into a 45 minute talk" was spot on; it was too much content for the slot. Which is a shame, because everything that was said was very informative. More focus on half the content, and the other half as a link to read up on might have worked better here.

Functional Programming for Dummies*
This talk was missing the "why" very much. It explained a lot of things about functional programming, but in a theoretical way and without context, due to which most of it was lost on me. This talk probably would have worked as a lecture during a course in university, but as a single 45m presentation during a conference, it didn't really work.

Voodoo PHP
This was a fun talk. After hearing about all the wonderful things you can do with technology, it's great to get a reminder of some of the wonderful things you shouldn't do with technology. A bit of thoughtfulness up front can save a lot of stress after.
