Socket Programming with PHP
It was an informative session on sockets usage in PHP. What I was expecting but didn't get (and would suggest to the lector for the next time, if I may) is more attention on the web sockets and a practical example of the usage, using the presented / proposed php and js libraries. I would like to note that Elisabeth is a fun speaker, I enjoyed her speaking style.

Application Logic Security
Even tough I was somewhat prepared what to expect from the lecture (a colleague of mine did a review of Ilia's talk at zendcon 2014), it still pleased me a lot to hear some new things.

Introduction to OAuth
The lector was smooth and confident on the subject but what I really needed was some working examples and a demo to put some flesh on. It was kinda dry.

Two Factor Authentication and You
Pretty clear and easy to understand lecture about the nature of 2-factor authentication. The pros and cons of the different popular techniques were well presented. The example with the phone and the computer was clear enough. External resources provided were very interesting as well.

Scaling PHP in the real world!
Very good, well synthesised talk with many aspects of optimization covered. Lots of takeaways. Just one remark: please make the code samples more readable - bigger font, some color scheme with syntax highlighting will do.

Giving Up Control: Inversion Of Control For Beginners
One of the best demonstrations of why and how dependency injection and inversion of control work! Nice analogies and examples. I'd definitely recommend the session to everybody not doing DI, it would provide them with a great justification why they should.

TDD: Team-Driven Development

Beyond Design Patterns
Being a design patterns fan, this talk was very interesting approach/viewpoint to the whole design patterns matter for me. It was very informative and provoked critical thinking, but I kind of miss code examples. I don't know if you've already done this, but might be a good idea to do a 3-hour hands-on tutorial with code examples.

REST API Best Practices
That one was a nice blend of good practices to follow and neat tools to use when developing APIs. I wish though there was some time toward the end of the session dedicated to demonstrating some of the API-related tools like the API notebook and some of the mentioned API managers. That might be a good idea for a tutorial.

Rewriting 12-Year-Old Code
The talk addresses very well the most common problems (hells) you have to face when refactoring/rewriting/modernizing old code. I was able to recognize situations I've faced and got out several good ideas about approaches to old code base. Got me hooked up to sit down and attack couple of old 3000+ lines classes :)

A complex ORM... faster than SQL?
I liked Marco Pivetta's talk a lot, mainly for the reason that I was able to enjoy and extract new useful stuff from it even though it was not my first time attending it. Good balance between theory and practice, had a live demo, learned new stuff from the questions and answers.

A functional guide to cat herding with PHP generators
A quite informative talk on PHP generators, put in a very interesting light - the real world problem that the speaker had solved (tracking cat movement) using generators added a great touch to the presented material. I had fun and learned how to reduce memory footprint using the filter-map-reduce pattern!

Service discovery and configuration provisioning
The talk was an eye opener for me - I realized the number of problems I can solve in my code using configuration tools like consul. I found at least 3 aspects of the systems I develop and maintain that I can improve using the presented tools and techniques. I'd just like to suggest using a larger font size for the code examples to make them more readable. The food services example with the phpbenelux fries was very entertaining!

Asynchronous Awesome – Task Management in PHP
It was a good informative talk, encompassing the most popular job/message queue managers and what you can do with them in PHP. It would have been even greater with a couple of live demos of sample apps, powered by some of the presented tools.

The Websockets Awaken: Using websockets in your PHP application
I really enjoyed the talk, the code sample and demo helped me understand better the problems I might be facing when implementing web sockets with PHP on the backend. Just a small recommendation: using a syntax highlighting color scheme for the code example slides would aid readability.

Grumpy And Funky Change The World
An eye-opener talk! Even if one does not personally experience a problem addressed in the talk, it definitely makes you think about how you can try making the life of people around you (including your colleagues) at least a little bit easier by just having in mind what they may be going through. And that society and culture is what we make it, we should never consider it a constant.

Curing the Common Loop (with Collection Pipelines)
I've been looking forward to this one. It was one of the talks that I definitely did not want to miss and I was more than happy that it not only lived up, but exceeded my expectations. The examples were very illustrative, the live coding demo was excellent, and the speaker is very confident and easy to follow. I would definitely give it a try when writing new code (or refactoring old one) to use collections and mapping/filtering rather than good old loops.

Test Driven Laravel
Extremely easy to follow, well structured and informative talk, consisted mostly of live coding, which is great to illustrate the topic. The speaker managed his time so well, that he was able to do intro to the whole TDD concept, do the live coding example, and even finish almost 20min earlier!

Taming the Resource Tiger
Good insight on what impact some otherwise simple actions/decisions on the developer's end have on the underlying architecture. Nice reference/talk-theme based on physics. The speaker is energetic and full of positive energy, as always. Stay that way, Elizabeth!

Pulling up Your Legacy App by its Bootstraps!
The talk gave me some good overlook of the major steps and tools that were used in the showcased scenario to refactor a legacy app. I would be even happier if there was some before/after code examples. That'd be my only suggestion.

How to Communicate Effectively Despite Technology
Good summary/breakdown of basics of communication, well designed slides, easy-going presentation. Helped me kind of recall some basic stuff that I often tend to forget or overlook in a conversation. Good talk for any technical person that has to communicate with non-technical people on a frequent basis. Maybe even more exact examples of how we should and how we should not ask and respond to questions would be great. Like do and do not kind of examples of sentences.

/Regex Makes Me (Weep|Give Up|(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻).?/i
Despite having worked with regexes for over a decade now, I was still able to learn several new things that would be very beneficial to me in future. I would love to see Brett make a workshop on that topic and dive into the advanced stuff from the end of the talk. I would also appreciate some unicode related examples in such a workshop.

Building APIs with Slim Framework

Status Change: Now Using Event Sourcing
Good coverage of the most important properties of events, basic rules on what to do and what not to do. Also covered examples of how event sourcing was used to implement an application the speaker was involved in. Some code and DB examples regarding the structure and handling of the events. Might be a great material for a hands-on 3-4 hour tutorial on implementing a sample app using event sourcing based on a given applicable domain problem (like banking or accounting).

Functional testing made easy with PHPUnit & Selenium
I found the tutorial pretty useful to me, was able to follow the hands-on steps easily in order to get the hang of steward as a testing tool and the features of the Selenium WebDriver. Also the Page pattern was well introduced and described as a good approach to this kind of testing. The preparation for the tutorial in terms of directions to install and get the docker image and vcn viewer working was good.

Journey through "unhappy path" - Dealing with exceptional conditions
I greatly enjoyed the talk! In technical aspect, the speaker exposed the topic very clearly, gave excellent examples and explanations of the proposed techniques for handling the error conditions, and justified the different approaches. He also provided additional info on external tools available for extending error handling. Also great job from a speaker perspective: he was very confident on stage and spoke in a very clear manner. The hall was literally overflowed, there was great interest from the audience. Timing was also excellent, allowing enough time for questions without sacrificing session content. Great talk, great speaker! Keep up the good job!

Async PHP requests & reactive responses with php-fpm
A very good talk - the author presented a unique solution for dealing with background tasks, developed by himself. The content was presented in a very clear manner - easy to follow, good examples, finishing with a live demo of the solution. There was plenty of time left for Q&A, which was excellent because there was a lot of interest on behalf of the audience. I highly recommend the talk!

Simplified Continuous Deployment with Laravel and Jenkins
The intension of the speaker was to present a lot of very useful information regarding how to implement continuous development with the help of Jenkins. A lot of material was covered, aiming at presenting a comprehensive all-round solution. However I think that's exactly where the problem was: The format of the talk (50 min regular session) did not fit the scale of the material. Although the speaker undoubtedly has the ability to present it in a very high pace (the first question after the talk was "Do you breathe?"), even finishing 6-7 minutes ahead of schedule, unfortunately I was unable to follow all the way through. I started with the idea to execute each step along the process, which is my own mistake, I guess. I failed epically. The idea of the talk and the material are perfect for a 2-3 hour tutorial that I would love to attend some day. Otherwise, I'd like to state that she is a good speaker and has the ability to communicate well with the audience.

How I learned to Stop Wiring and Love Autowiring Containers
The talk included a good overview of different injection container implementations and usage examples. The speaker kind of followed the evolution of injection containers in the PHP world, exposing the pros and cons of different solutions (Pimple, Laravel Container, Symfony DIC) and their development in time/versions. Good informative talk with clear code examples. Useful information, regardless if you worked with dependency injection containers before or that was your first time hearing a talk on the topic.

Minimize the framework and allow yourself some DDD
The speaker was confident and passionate about the topic, which made perform very well on stage. The topic was presented in a clear manner, defending the thesis about the domain-driven reorganization of the application structure itself. A balanced view of the usage of the framework was presented. The session generated good amount of interest in the audience, provoking questions. Milko was able to clearly address them. A lot of positive energy and ability to handle unexpected technical difficulties (disconnecting display) was displayed. I'd say I enjoy Milko's presentation style and looking forward to attending more talks by him in future.
