Scalable PHP web applications with Apache Cassandra
A small phpcassa demo would be a great addition to this talk. Try to limit the amount of text on your sheets and don't read them.

Models and Service Layers; Hemoglobin and Hobgoblins
A very interesting talk which covered a lot. Speaker knows what he's talking about and is able to communicate this in a pleasant way. Add clear slides and some humour and you got a great talk.

Five Weird Tricks to Become a Better Developer
I think it's a good thing that there's room for non-technical talks like this on conferences. This stuff matters.

Life After Assetic: State of the Art Symfony 2 Frontend Dev
Nice and hip stuff in this presentation. Would have been nice if you executed some of the commands in your terminal instead of showing them on the slides.

Object Invariants, Immutability & You: Making Objects Do Your Bidding
An interesting topic presented in an entertaining way. Jeroen was well-prepared and knows what he's talking about. I also liked the clear slides including appropriate cat pictures. I think it's very hard to not talk about DDD when discussing something like Value Objects but I understand the reasoning behind this. Well done!

The why and the how of moving to 5.5/5.6
Since most of the attendees are already running one of the latest PHP versions this talk didn't have a lot of visitors. Does this mean they already know PHPCompatibility? I thought it was good that you increased the font size of the code examples. The downside was that I felt it took a bit too long and I got distracted. The talk was a bit on the short side. I heard something about miscommunication about the talk length. I would have liked to hear some more about the future of PHPCompatibility.

PHP Performance Tuning: Prepare for Ludicrous Speed!
A clear demo of xhgui with some good examples. You can't really go in-depth in such a short amount of time. Overall I got a good overview of the tools.

Migrating to DDD
This is an interesting subject which had a lot of attendees even though it was the first slot of the second day. There were some technical difficulties; the headset didn't work properly so you had to use a microphone. Also you had to walk to your laptop each time to click to the next slide. These things could have been solved by a bit more preparation. In the description of your talk you mentioned topics that were not in your presentation (PHPUnit vs Behat vs CodeCeption). DDD is a very broad subject; try to limit the things that you want to present. The content of your slides were clear although a bit dry. At the start when you showed the start-up example with South Park characters there was room for a joke there. Check out South Park season 18, episode 1 (Go Fund Yourself) for inspiration :-) 3 out 5, it seems the rating disappears after you edit your comment..

Malicious cryptography in Symfony apps
What I liked: - Interesting subject - Clear slides, good explanation of processes What could be improved: - Limit the use of mathematical terms (like elliptic curves) or explain them - Fix the bug in the demo (file being cleared)

Security Theatre
Interesting subject that deserves more attention. Good combination of practical information, code examples, references, tips and example stories. I especially liked the code examples and specific tips for PHP. Thank you Thomas!

Paradoxes and theorems every developer should know
An interesting 'softer' subject that appealed to a lot of people as the the room was packed. There weren't enough chairs to seat everyone. Joshua is an entertaining and knowledgeable speaker who can keep his audience engaged. Thank you!

Discovering Your Skateboard & Delivering the Most Valuable Features
A good and clear overview of user story mapping. It's hard to pack so much information in a relatively short presentation. I liked the part on prioritizing features and would have liked to hear more about this. Thank you!

Keynote: Beyond Code
There was a lot of good advice in this talk on very important subjects. I didn't mind the lack of slides. Though, for a opening keynote I feel it missed a bit of energy. Also, what I found a bit distracting was the checking of the mobile phone you were holding. Thank you!
