Logging, Monitoring, Security!
So, I must repeat the concern for cursing that others have mentioned but I think this talk suffered much more from a lack of organization and preparation. When your talk goes less than half of the allotted time it speaks to preparation and lack of run-throughs/practice. That said, there was some good ideas and content buried inside.

A Gentle Walk Towards SOA

Lessons in Load Testing: Using PHP to load test your site and APIs
I'm the first to say that I don't understand as much about load testing as I should. Jason's talk was clear and helped me level up a bit and learn about a new tool.

ColumbusPHP: cURL and REST API Best Practices by Derek McDaniel
Derek presented a brief intro to REST and used cURL samples as examples in consuming REST services. He had a polished delivery and Q&A was very interesting with a lot of questions. The presentation itself was a little short but the extended Q&A made up for it. I would attend again and look forward to hearing more from him.

The Dark Corners of the SPL
I'm not as familiar with some of standard library options as I should be even after a long history with PHP. Omni gave a good rundown of a number of the items and helped fill some of the gaps that I have. I'd recommend his talk for those looking to understand more about data structures.
