Refactoring towards Dependency Injection
The first part of the presentation might have been a little bit to cryptic for people that have not dived into DI before but I think that it can be fixed with more explanation of the goals of the refactor on the first example. The rest of the presentation was super nice and very interesting. I hope the slides are gonna be made available. Very nice talk.

Getting started with Apigility
I agree with a little warning that zf2 knowledge is important. Other than that the walk trough and the git repo with exercices and solutions was quite helpfull. Thanks

PhpSpec 2 - the only design tool you need
I felt like there was no clear message. The talk went a bit in all directions. And the colour scheme can be improved for readability.

Docker: The only thing it can't contain is your excitement
The intro was fun but too long and I think it's one of the reason why you ran out of time. You should also probably rephrase a bit to make it shorter and make the example more practical than a hello world.

I missed the beginning of the talk but the rest was really nice. Having the git repo to re-review is also super nice.

Why Magento? How to determine if Magento is the right choice.
I liked that you were always able to put back any question into context and that you were never falling into the trap "My solution is the best and all the other are crap". You also manage to adapt to your audience on the go which ended up in a very interactive talk.

Testing legacy applications
I only saw the end of the talk, but the end was very good. I feel like you should do a training with the slides about testing legacy code. You piqued my interest into Reflection Classes and their use in unit testing.

Delivering software that matters with BDD and Symfony2
Very nice talk. I just think that a little time was lost while your where repeating 3 times the same thing. When you explained the process of making the behavior tests, having them fail, then making the unit test making them fail, then having the unit tests pass and finally the behavior test pass. Maybe you could use one of those repetition to actually show the unit tests too. To really see the relation between the behat and unit tests. Great talk overall.

PHP Data Structures (and the impact of PHP 7 on them)
Very nice. It was a bit too long so maybe there are choices to be made. I also think that you should merge the part were you make people guess the data type with photos and the part were explain the data type. It would make the technical part a little bit more digest.

Making Embedded Domain-Specific Languages a Practical Reality
Very interesting and dense topic. Overall the talk was very nice but I would encourage the speaker to split a lot of his slides so that they become much lighter. There was way to much to read on each of them.

Parsers All The Way Down? Exploring Combinator Parsing
I really liked the talk, it was a very complete overview of the base of the subject. Because the subject is quite dense in your talk, I think that I would add a few slides to recap a bit were we are in the talk and what's left to build with the parsers. Also, a few time you weren't audible because the micro was to far from your mouth I guess.

How to Migrate Anything with DDD
All in all the talk was really nice. I think that you can still improve it by for example trying to show the example first and then the theory that get extracted from it. Another thing could be to use a common subject throughout the talk for the example. That might make the example easier to follow. For example you should try to use the subject of your intro as a base for all the examples.

Excellent talk, excellent insight into legacy code. There might be some room for improvement on the slides thought. I think that there were a little bit too much bullet point list.

A Functional Guide to Cat Herding with PHP Generators
The talk was nice and informative. I would just recommend the speaker to try to put more intonation in his voice. I mean that he was speaking always on the same tone and maybe a little bit to quiet. It was sometimes hard to ear from the back were I was. I am also not a native speaker.
