0x0F Ways to be a Better Developer
The split screen worked well, a unique way to start the conference. While some of the points were quite obvious, they did raise some good points. Also, the stories that Lorna and Ivo both told more than made up for it.

The future of the PHP development environment
I found talk this quite interesting, and I'll definitely be looking to incorporate this into my workflow. However, as this was an introduction, I would have prefered more time spent on Vagrant over Chef.

Your (coding) standards matter
One of the most captivating speakers at the conference, and raised some great points.

Introducing Dependency Injection
A nice introduction to DI and DICs that replaced the jargon with basic concepts. The content covered will have an immediate impact on my work, which can only be a good thing.

A resource orientated framework using the DI/AOP/REST Triangle
The framework itself seemed like an interesting approach, but the language barrier made it difficult to follow at times. Akihito and Richard did very well in the circumstances, however and I feel encouraged to look further into Bear.Sunday.

Getting the most out of Xdebug
The talk was one of the most beneficial talks of the weekend. Derek came off as extremely knowledgeable (not just about Xdebug, but about PHP in general) - and the confidence showed during the presentation.

Vertical reusability through components
Yet another entertaining talk with a new approach to a typical web app,a and perhaps the most interesting of the weekend. Well explained and filled with Volker's ever-present humour.

Don't be STUPID, Grasp SOLID
A well-paced and balanced talk, and I think the majority of the audience came away with at least one or two things to consider in their methodologies.

Making PHP go fast
The presentation was in a different style to many of the others I attended, but was all the more beneficial for it. The we-had-a-problem-and-developed-a-solution was a nice real-world demonstration of how to approach a problem and then find a better/best solution. The reasoning behind design decisions too was helpful, as usually they're presented as as "do this because I say so".

Building Better Developers
A great way to end the conference and highlighted some genuine points. Rowan's delivery was perfect and the concept of the Dr Frankenstein's Developer promoted audience participation.

Two > One: Modernising Magento for 2015 & Beyond
The talk itself was highly accessible, even for novices such as myself. Ben was clearly comfortable in front of the room, and the relaxed nature of the talk helped convey the content of the presentation. I came out inspired to look into Magento much more in the future.

Composer for Corporate Use
Quite an interesting talk, although there wasn't quite as much Composer content as I'd like, as Jenkins featured much more heavily than I was expecting. However, it was interesting to see how Satis could be utilised with a private codebase - definitely food for thought.

Practical Refactoring
I thoroughly enjoyed Stefan's talk - he is clearly gifted for presenting. There was a good balance to the informative and humour and I walked away feeling I'd learned something. My only suggestion is that it could have used more examples, but otherwise the slides were timed nicely.

Beyond Design Patterns
A really interesting talk filled with a number of abstract concepts. I think it could have benefited from additional time, but it raised some good points regarding design patterns that we adopt without real thought given to the problems we're trying to solve. Perhaps another blog series?

PHP: Under The Hood
Given the hangover slot, Davey did a great job presenting rather technical content in a clear fashion. It might not have been for everyone, but it was nice to go back to my university days.

Bring Your Application into 2014
Raised some good points (especially refactoring versus re-coding), and the example-driven talk made the content much clearer. My only real comment is that I was expecting the scope to be broader than just refactoring (although important in its own right).

Your Mileage Should Vary
Seriously engaging, even at the end of a very busy weekend. He is clearly passionate about the industry, and it shows in each of the talks I've had the pleasure of attending. I'd go to watch Volker discuss paint drying techniques.

A storm is brewing
An excellent overview of the concepts, giving a clear sense of structure to something that could easily lose focus. I'll definitely be integrating it into our process. Only suggestion would be to spend a little more time going over the rules of poker, as some were not very clear on the rules. Other than that minor issue, highly recommended.

Modelling by Example
My first real exposure to Behat at a practical level, and it was well delivered. It certainly clarified how we go from a scenario through to writing the tests. Ciaran was on hand to solve any issues I hand, although I wish we'd had a little more time on the practical side of things.

Behaviour Driven Development and Behat: Telling Stories Through Code
I found the talk well-paced and devliered. It also clarified a few areas of uncertainty I had surrounding Behat.

Level Up Your Team
Another great talk from Stefan - covering a large range of options for improving teams. Only real suggestion would be to look at touching on how to manage de-motivated individuals more (although this may be outside the scope of the talk, as there wa plenty of content)

Slim: The PHP micro framework
This talk was an example why I never miss out on a talk by Rob. Well delivered, just the right amount of content and I've come away feeling confident that I'd be able to jump right into Slim. I'd always heard good things, but it now confirmed that I'll be using it in the near future. The best part was how it explained PSR-7 with real clarity.

OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls 2016
A pretty good talk that touched on how to address the Top 10 issues and how to defend against them at a code level. One suggestion would be to have a closure look at OWASP Zap.
