Do You Speak Design Patterns in PHP?
Great tutorial. This is the second time I see Enrico and Ralph present and they constantly deliver high quality material. I would have personally liked to cover more material and removed the interactive stuff (giving people in the audience time to code). I think the excercise.php and solution.php modality is great for you to learn at home and at your own pace but not to attempt to code in the tutorial (I only had time to complete only one code example even for the patterns that I already knew). I think the best case scenario would be to have them show and explain the patterns and also give you the exercise/solution files to take home and practice but not do them in situ. A HUGE plus would have been If they had shown actual zf2/doctrine/(etc) code with these design patterns in action. They did reference these projects verbally so that's ok. I would definitely recommend this talk to my colleges.

PHPUnit: Recipes for Success
The dynamic duo strikes again in an almost stand-up comedy-geek-tech-talk! Good stuff!

The rise of the Cloud Native developer
I am more into tech-oriented talks and this felt like a plug. For some reason I found the "green" side of the talk quite interesting.

LEVEL UP! Migrating your ZF1 app to ZF2
I think the most valuable thing in this talk is the fact that he posted an actual working app in its two incarnations: zf1, and zf2. Very detailed indeed.

ZF2: Building a SOA Architecture
Very informative. I agree the slides and code went up a little fast but you can always look at the slides later.

Nginx: The Need for Speed
Great talk. The best part was when he talked about the "gotchas" and what not to do.

Test{able|ing} Zend Framework 2 Applications
I would have loved to have less "intro" and more "phpunit". Still, great talk and the contents were very relevant (plus he's a freaking genius).

Grokking HTTP
Clearly Ben knows what he is talking about. Good talk!

Business Logic Security
This is the second talk I attend by this speaker and the same thing amazed me this time: how deep knowledge he shows of the subject matter. And by the way, he was probably the only speaker at ZendCon who projected his voice properly throughout the *whole* talk. A+ presenting skills.

Testing Essentials: Mock Objects Explained
VERY thorough and to the point. The talk was engaging from minute one until the end. I've been to at least 5 talks on unit testing and this is the first one that went deeply into all the different kinds of test objects available to you (stubs, mocks, fakes, dummies, and spies) with relevant examples instead of theoretical use. Great job!

Building Models in ZF2: A Crash Course
To me this was one of the best talks in the conference in the sense that if you apply what was covered, your programing skills will definitely go up a few notches. I found it very interesting because I've been trying to implement DDD lately and this talk confirmed that I was doing it the right way (or at least in *one* of the right ways). Thanks Ralph!

Build a Bot Workshop: Async Primer
Would have loved to see more of the possibilities of the amphp library. I think that for this particular type of session I would prefer cloning the repo and screwing around with it once everything is in place. I don't find writing the code during sessions (this or any) to be beneficial. Still, the topic was super interesting and potentially game-changing! Oh, and a big thumbs down to the shitty wifi in the room (not the presenter's fault, obviously).

Zend PHP Certification Boot Camp - Part II
Scared the crap out of me. Christian Wenz sure knows his stuff! Not a millisecond wasted in this talk!

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Regular Expressions
Tons of great info and well presented. I had trouble following at some points due to the fact that the syntax is super alien. This would have been a great candidate for a session during the first day in order to give people some hands on approach.

Static Analysis Saved my Code Tonight
I really like the topic. In my opinion there was too much time spent on less practical things (the first half of the talk). The second half was great because it delivered very practical tools people can use.

Offline Sync for Progressive Web Apps
I was expecting a much practical approach to the subject but the talk only provided a bird's-eye view of the topic. Seemed like a company pitch at some point. Would have loved to see an actual working example (even minimal) of the whole stack.

Lessons Learned Building the Composer Internals
I think the presenter was a bit all over the place on this talk (saw him on the regex talk and could tell that he was a little burned for this particular talk). I would have loved this talk to go deeper into each bug. Still, I think people got the jist of it.

Writing Tests for PHP Source
This was my another of my favorite talks this year. Super well explained, 100% practical, and the slides looked like they were made by a professional designer! Kept the energy up consistently. Great job!

Machine Learning for the Rescue
Very thorough session on a very broad topic. Maybe the talk needs to narrow the scope a bit in order to give a little bit more time to the code and practical applications. Managed to dispel the myth that you need to be a mathematician in order to apply this to your own projects.

Refactoring Done Right
Very well presented and thorough. If I had to listen to the talk again, I would love to hear more (and more examples) on SOLID.

The New Revolution
I hate keynotes with a passion. Usually php conferences have keynotes that have nothing to do with programming php at all. More often than not the keynote speakers are not even technical people and the content is super generic (and even condescending from the perspective of a technical person). Samantha was the complete opposite! The talk was super interesting. When she went "the history way" I thought "oh crap, here we go again" but her approach was super relevant and the message genuinely positive. Great job!

The Possibility of PHP – The Weird and Wonderful Stories of the Web and Where We’re Headed
I'm sorry but I didn't like this talk at all. I found it to be the same thing as always but said differently. Yes, php is growing, it's cool, and is used more and more. I think everyone in the audience knows that. The comparison of the different PHP versions was interesting, but again, already done to death and not "keynote worthy". I don't mean to be negative or rude but for those of us who paid for the conference ticket out of pocket + hotel + airplane (not a trivial amount), every minute counts. I think every talk needs to add value and this one didn't. Adam Culp mentioned it many times: we're here to learn. I think the contents of this talk was more fit for a newsletter ("look, here's the state php is in, click here to compare the different versions loading a fractal!") instead of a keynote. Again, not hating but these kinds of talks make me feel a little cheated on.

Continuous delivery with Jenkins, Terraform, AWS ECS, and Docker
Joshua, great tutorial. I learned a lot but I think the scope was too big. This could have easily been a one or two day workshop in order to fully grasp what was covered. I really wanted to try and run the whole stack but was completely sure that would have been impossible in the remaining two hours. Will definitely try it out on my own though.

The Sodium crypto library of PHP 7.2
Excellent presentation. Fully and concise working examples of everything covered. This could have very well been a super dry topic but Enrico you made it very enjoyable Congrats!

Release your refactoring superpower
I thought it was going to be a more nuts and bolts kind of talk. I expected to see code examples too. The talk showed a completely different thing than I was expecting but did it so very well. I've seen Adam on other talks and he always delivers.

Immutability to save an ever-changing world

Docker alphabet soup
Dana, I think the contents of the talk were great but maybe I could have done without the live demos. As a member of the audience I think more often than not live demos get in the way of the presentation flow and waste a lot of valuable time that could maybe used to get more content across. Some presenters like Lorna Jane Mitchell show short pre-recorded screencasts of the "live" part of the demo, so people see the things being executed in real time as she talks but there's zero chance of errors happening. Again, as I'm sitting there, I don't care if the commands are being executed live or are part of a slideshow as long as the content is there.
