Working with PhpStorm
Interesting workshop, easy to follow. PhpStorm has too many features to cover in such a short timespan, as Maarten indicated at the start, but it was dealt with nicely by asking the audience which topics they find the most interesting to dive into. Learned many bigger and smaller things about PhpStorm which I didn't know; there appears to be no bounds to its functionality :) Even though we didn't have time to go through all the topics, Maarten provided a github repo containing the complete presentation, as well as well-prepared tutorial assignments to do later. I've only one small remark: considering the amount of OSX users, more focus on the correct Mac shortcuts would be nice :)

JavaScript/HTML5 Communication APIs
The way Christian performs this talk is almost the stand up comedy equivalent of nerdcore ;) Very entertaining and informative; saw some cool things I didn't know existed until now. The talk itself was well structured, and the live coding of proof-of-concept snippets was fun. Enjoyed this very much.

The first few milliseconds of HTTPS
Like many webdevelopers (at least, I think ;)) I've dealt with HTTPS in the past. Usually that would either go like "hey webhosters, can you enable HTTPS for me on somewhere.com?" or, in situations when I didn't mind the browser security warning, it would involve https://www.google.nl/#q=create+certificate+apache . It was very refreshing to get some detailed insight into a subject which I usually just take for granted. I used to stop worrying about the datastream being intercepted as long as I had the padlock in my browser, but Joshua's talk has taught me that doesn't always have to be the case. Yet another headache, thanks for that ;) The talk in general was well structured, and the prepared wireshark captures were a great hands-on pratical example.

Development, By The Numbers
Very well structured talk, great presentation. Learned many new things, very enthousiastic about running some of these tools on our own codebase! Curious if we are doing better than Wordpress ;)

Your (coding) standards matter
Didn't mind the water drinking personally; after a while I stopped noticing it. It's less intrusive and much more comfortable than ending up with coughing fits for sure. Solid talk and introduction to some of the hard technical aspects. I liked the softer considerations that there should be a balance between coding-standards-fanaticism and business goals as well. The funny parts prevented me from fully entering my food coma. Very informative and enjoyable.

Guard Authentication: Powerful, Beautiful Security
Quality talk as always. Love the concept - for our use case it will allow us to make some big simplifications :)

Hack this workshop!
In my day to day work, like many devs, I am aware of security flaws and try to keep them in mind. However, with frameworks increasingly protecting us from making common mistakes, the mind grows lazy and it becomes easier to overlook potential attack vectors. This hands-on workshop was a great and fun way to bring back security awareness to the foreground of one's mind. Though most developers do know about common vulnerabilities, how often do you actually probe a black box application for flaws and subsequently exploit them? Content-wise I think the session was interesting and well-prepared. There were some minor glitches but this was to be expected considering it was the first run for this workshop. The challenges were challenging, diverse and the pace and timeline seemed to fit well. I think that in a larger group, it may be feasible to try and reduce spoilers. Hearing people around you (understandably) happily exclaim 'oooh I think I found something in ' can sometimes give away the solution. Though honestly some collaboration is fun as well, so I'm not really sure how to circumvent this issue. Environment-wise I think the air conditioning was a bit loud at times, making Chris a bit more difficult to hear at times. All in all - would recommend :thumbsup:

Behat for characterisation on tests
Learned a lot as someone with zero BDD or Behat experience. Clear talk. I liked how the focus was not just 'hah look at these cool tools!', but there was some backstory to illustrate the context and when/why you should (not) use them. Personally I would have enjoyed watching some tests run live. It is a satisfying feeling ;) All in all, good talk.

Knowing your state machines
Very good speaker, energetic and funny talk. Having used state machines before in the Ruby world, it was interesting to hear some more theory behind it, and to see the PHP implementation. Happy to see the Symfony workflow component, it looks easy to use and will try it out soon for sure. Thanks!
