PHP in the Cloud
It was an interesting talk that covered the basics. Would have love to see more in-depth examples though I realise the talk would have been longer with the co-speaker and thus there would be less time to go in-depth. Too bad about the Google App Engine. Anyway, overal it was well done talk.

Code Obfuscation, PHP Shells & More
As a developer this was an eye-opener! A very informative and clear talk with a nice set of slides.

Liking relevance
I really liked the talk and could easily follow even though I have never worked with Solr before. A quick introduction to Solr could be handy in the beginning like Jeroen said. But as soon as you started I could follow thanks to every example. It has been said before but the font could indeed be a bit larger. And when you switch from example to a view of the GUI it was really hard on the eyes ( black to white), at least on the front row. Don't forget a 'Group By' example! Overall a very good talk and it got me really interested in Solr!

Symfony2 Best Practices from the trenches
Ok, let me start off with saying that I just started learning SF2. So I'm looking at this talk as a complete beginner with this framework. As a beginner I could definitely follow every point you mentioned, not that I know how I would do everything you mentioned it was a good reminder for me to look into each and everyone of those points. Like Jeroen said I would start with the more basic things like the documentation and then go to the harder subjects. As for the slides, I would change the blur container to a black version and give it a little less opaque, then with the text white I think you can solve 2 problems. The first is that some text was pretty unreadable. The second was like Joshua said, the slides background can be distracting. But overal I liked the talk and learned some more!

Phoenix Servers
I had seen the different version of this talk for the Docker meetup #1 and I can honestly say it was much better, but of course due to the nature of the talk less in depth. That does not mean the first one was bad, definitely not as it was the first time you were giving it. Good talk overall!

The Database Access rEvolution

90K reasons why security is a must!
This was a very informative talk and definitely showed that there are still a lot of developers out there that need to hear about security. Also great tips and links, these will come in handy to improve. Did not know about the fact that authorities needed to be contacted when hacked, and that there is a fine for failing with security.

The Laravel PHP framework. It grows with you.
This was a good talk, yet a bit long I think. I think more interaction with the audience would keep more of the focus. For example, when the explanation of MVC came my focus kind of slipped as this is something most of us should know. To improve both of these little things you might ask questions to the audience like "Is there anyone who is not familiar with <insert topic here>?" This will draw attention back to the talk for those that are slipping and if everybody knows about that topic people will not need to hear about it for the x time. This will also give you the opportunity to delve into something deeper later on. Overal a good talk though!

PSR-7 HTTP messages in the wild
This was a very interesting talk about PSR-7. Slides: - Don't forget to fix the slide with "return $response" :) Demo's - Demo's are fine the way you brought them. But do think about the aspect that a conference might not have (decent) internet. Then the calls to github would fail. Maybe, if you already haven't, foresee a fallback in the form of video's Talk No real remarks, it was loud and clear :)

Coding in a scalable environment
This was a very interesting talk and gave good hints at what to watch out for when considering scaling in the long run. You spoke in a clear voice with a good tone and intonation. Also very well played in on what the audience was doing. Great job!

So you are not using an ORM yet?
I'm going to follow the previous comments, not sure if it was too slow of pace though or that it felt a bit monotone, sound wise (no offence here :) ) I would also suggest to keep the history shorter and go deeper into the pro's and con's. Maybe with some examples. But keeping in mind this was created in 2 weeks: Great job!

Code Archaeology: Becoming Indiana Jones
First off, loved the theme, story and your costume to do the talk. That made it a bit more unique from the rest. Secondly, the content. Now I agree that most of it is beginner wise. But that's ok. There are always new people coming to the conference. So we need these kind of talks as well. Third, the accent made it a bit more challenging. The tone of voice was indeed a bit monotone for me as well. But those are things that can be improved by training :) All in all, good job!

A recommendation engine in your PHP applications
I'm with the rest of the crowd here. Very fun intro but could have gone a little deeper into it. Pronunciation was a little off at times but that is something that can be worked on :)

GoPHPer - Introduction Go for PHP developers (Uncon)
Great intro to Go! Would love to see an example of how you could connect PHP and Go (Purpose wise). You obviously had to skip a lot due to the short time span. Definitely worth a full length talk version!

Shhh..! PHP App Secrets with Vault and Consul
Great little talk. And even if you never played with it before it was still pretty good to follow. Excellent job! Also loved the little demo :) I also agree with the lightweight framework but doesn't really matter as long as it works ^^

Logging and visualizing data with the ELK stack
Nice job on keeping quite a large topic in a relatively short talk. It had all the necessary entry points for us to and find more info on certain parts and the demo views was a nice extra little touch. Great job!

Code review beyond code style
Very interesting topic that we don't see a lot around, nice choice on that! I really liked the structure of the talk and looking at it from 2 sides (Submitter and Reviewer). Loved the little intermezzo. I would agree with the examples, would love to see some real life examples :) Overal great talk!

Exploiting the brain for fun and profit
I think you're great speaker, but the talk itself was not completely what I expected when reading the title or the description. Not sure how to give helpful feedback on this. I felt like it dit not really fit the conference? Also I missed "Drink lots and lots of water" :)

The Test Suite Holy Trinity
Let me start of with the fact that I expected a different type of talk. I thought it would go into actual suites and not the types of testing that we have. Having said that, this was a great talk! You presented it well and the slides were very clear. Not sure about the naming but after seeing the talk I can understand why you used that naming specifically :-)

Beyond REST maturity levels: Insights from building a real life, high-load REST API
The talk was technically correct but not what I expected of it. It was also very dull / non-entertaining. The guy next to me sadly fell asleep. It's hard to convey passion, keep trying!

Pragmatic TDD
Loved the approach and guidance in to the testing. We started with a simple test and some explanation. Next up was deeper level testing. The explanation was done well and it showed you know your stuff. Would have loved some homework / tips on things to discover about testing. Good job!

Building Text Adventures and Other CLI Apps in PHP
The theory was a good intro into CLI, loved it. The setup in this room was a little unusual to me but I think standing in the middle would have helped the audience on the right to see you better. With the time left and the it being in the title it might be a good idea to show a small text adventure game in the CLI? Otherwise great talk!

Progressive Web Apps
I think this was a great intro to progressive web apps through service workers. Content-wise I think it's fine. Maybe add some syntax highlighting for readability. A full example at the end would be nice as well. For the speaking part you seemed a bit nervous. Which is fine, nothing can be helped about that. You breathing was a bit fast, probably due to the nervousness, might be something to look out for next time. As well as using stop words like Uhmmm. But great job! Fine-tune these small things and it will be as close to a 5 * as you can get :)

Write history, keep a diary
First of all I think this is a really good subject to talk about. The commenting system of git is easily overlooked during development. As we discussed after I think it would be wise to maybe take a different approach on the bullet points with the comments. The live demo is a nice touch but foresee a back-up plan. If it goes wrong I would say it is easy to make mistakes in git and show us how to fix that. However, this is a good talk!

The Science of Code Reviews
I think this is an interesting topic that was well given. Rick talks very smooth and has a nice stage presence. Content wise I would love it if we went a bit deeper on the tools to perform better code reviews. Maybe show some screenshots for the PHPStorm way of doing it. Well done!

Coding Horrors - A Horror Film Fan's Guide to PHP Coding Nightmares
For the more experienced speaker the content itself was a great reminder that not all juniors know the pitfalls one can encounter and so to remember to just explain it. For the juniors this was a nice little awareness talk about things one should not do in PHP. I absolutely love the theme it was done it! And the correlation between the movies and the examples was great! Bindings was a bit hard, I first thought it was going to be about legacy :p Mark has a calm stage presence that makes the audience feel at ease. Add the humour he has and you have a great talk!

Unleash your web skills on native!
It got me triggered to look into NativeScript so job well done! I also like superheroes so I'm a big fan of the slides. Content-wise, I think we might have gone a bit faster over the color themes, and stuff like that and go deeper into the demo with the little robot. But of course that is personal preference. Great job!

The developer's model for talking to managers
What can I say, Pim is a great speaker who mixes interactivity and humour with great content. Seeing him talk is always fun. The warning at the beginning was a good idea and the examples were great! I don't think I can add anything else at this point. It's a must watch!

A self-describing API
I think that this is an interesting subject as a lot of people work with API's these days. Like Matthias said, this is a bit of a dry subject and the time of day was a bit against you. Some suggestions on how you could try to improve it: - Add some more color to the slides (Don't make it a colouring book), the slides now were a bit plain. - With a room as wide as this one I think it's a good idea to walk around a bit from side to side. This will give the audience a focus point when they are done looking at the current slide. - Interactivity is also a good way to add more vibe to a dry subject like this - And if you're up to it you can always add a little humour Now these are just suggestions. Play around with them and try to find what works for you. You'll get there! Good luck!

Keynote : Controlling the variables
Thijs, as you know I'm a big fan of the way you do your talks. You have great charisma and stage presence. I know you put a lot of effort into the slides to have them contain small little videos and kudos for that. It definitely paid off. Now, I see there is a lot going on in the other comments about the content. In the sense of privilege and so on. So I rated it based on how I received the message. I felt inspired to keep on working hard, do more UG and try to perform better at work. The notes about positivity and complaining is something I understand all to well. Having been there with a burn-out as a result. Trying to see things positive and handling the setbacks instead of complaining about them has helped me a lot. Great talk!
