The seven deadly sins of Dependency Injection
Interesting talk, and a great coverage of what not to do, but I missed the part about "the right way"...?

Working with PhpStorm
Overall a good introduction - sadly because I'm an OS X user I spent too much time trying to decipher the chart and find the equivalent keyboard commands - by which time I'd missed the demo of how it worked... Maarten tried to overcome this with a plugin however as often as not it was wrong, and was almost impossible to see because it was right at the bottom of the screen. Clearly the wealth of features is impressive, and the way Maarten 'crowd-sourced' the topics to cover was highly commendable. I'd elected to attend this tutorial because I'd heard very good things about PHPStorm and was tempted to move away from my current IDE by - sadly this tutorial didn't do it for me - maybe next time...

Let’s Learn Testing
Exactly what it said on the tin, extremely well delivered, and with clear live-coding examples and excellent audience involvement.

Apigility DEMO (Uncon)
Having been in the session where Apigility was introduced this was a must-see session and it didn't disappoint. I'm slightly skeptical of 'tools' which completely mask the complexities of a situation, since it can lead to complacency however this is certainly a tool to explore in more detail.

Don't code, bake. An introduction to CakePHP
A great introduction by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter who clearly 'know his stuff'. I'd really like to have seen some code though - if you really can 'bake' a site in five min, then how about doing a demo of that at the end, then providing a quick walk-through of each of the parts which you explained so very well in the talk.?

Reverse caching proxies: Varnish or Nginx?
Good talk, lots of details, but as someone not using either but interested in doing so I'd have liked to see more of a conclusion and summary, in which recommendations for which to use under certain circumstances.

Composer Best Practices
Somehow I expected more from this session - it mostly felt like a explanation of the documentation, rather than an in depth look at 'best practices'

Modern Software Architectures
Wow - lots of content at a break-neck speed. It come across a bit negative, without offering alternatives.

MVVM and Silex - It's the future
Really well presented session, with excellent examples of how the components in fit together, along with the rationale for /why/ the various technologies had been selected.

The Power of Modern Version Control
As a non-Git user it felt to me that for those who were, this was too simplistic while for those of us who aren't it didn't make a lot of sense...

My Debugging And Performance Toolbox
Great talk from a great presenter. Really liked the few slides and giving most of the time over to the practical demonstrations. Only criticism was that teeny-tiny font in a couple of places.

Application Logging & Logstash
Great presentation. Super presenter. Great mix of slides/code/demos to make things really clear. Only criticism was out of Ben's control - the room was too small..!

Every Millisecond Counts: Performance & UX
Many good ideas here, well presented. I would have preferred less time on image compression and more technical detail in the other topics covered. Another idea which might help the talk would be to give 'ratings' in a few scales for each idea e.g support: everywhere, time to implement: low, impact: high.

Large-scale websites performance optimisation tricks
An interesting overview of a very complex system. I would have liked a quicker intro, and more technical detail about the optimisations you made in the code implementation as well as in the infrastructure. Love you 204 'trick' as a way for a backend service to return a response to the front end...! I greatly admire your ability to present to such a large audience in a 'second' language :-)

Docker & PHP - development and deployment
An excellent overview, with clear and concise information on how to get a Docker-based system up and running. Your slides and examples were very clear and I appreciated the live demos which you did. I also greatly admire your ability to present so clearly and confidently in a 'second' language to a standing-room-only crowd :-)

Elastic scaling in a (micro)service oriented architecture
A good overview, though I kind of missed the elasticity aspect somewhere in there...

Behind the Scenes of Maintaining an Open Source Project
Interesting to hear from a maintainer of a big public project about the challenges and some of the total f'wits that exist in the world. Although you tried to provide structure through the use of the 'topics' I felt that several of them were quite overlapping which meant that the talk lacked cohesion to me.
