Apigility: Agile APIs
Great content both generally about APIs and also introducing Apigility as a tool to simplify the process of creating them. Most of the questions I've been asking myself a lot in the past months and lots of new questions I have to explore after this talk.

Composer: Stability and Semantic Versioning Demystified
Very informative presentation made very easy to understand. Also he explained a few things I had trouble with in the past, for which I am grateful. A few more app related examples could have been good to see. In the end, very good job !

Web Frontend, API Backend
Well prepared information, great presentation! And the examples were very clear and easy to understand. I think Slim served well as a framework of choice for the example. The only think missing for me was testing, but she cleared it out in the questions.

Virtualizing Development
Pretty good start of the day camp! A lot of information, nicely organized and without too much detail on any of the tools, which could change the focus of the overview.

Portable Development Environments with Vagrant and Ansible
Really good in depth look at using Vagrant with Ansible. I'll definitely check it out more closely. As always, live demos are greatly appreciated!

Development with Vagrant
It was great as an introduction to people not familiar with Vagrant. If technology didn't fail the demos it would have been even better.

Containers, VMs, and the Future of the Cloud
So, so much information. I'll have to watch it again to get my head around some of the concepts. I especially liked the history intro in the beginning for VM and container usage over the years.

Multiple ElePHPants, One Box: Inside virtPHP
Great talk! Nice overview of the tool, which seems very interesting in itself! I am sure it will be a blessing for a lot of fellow developers out there.

The Future of APIs
The talk was informative and well presented, but to me it felt like it was more suited for non-developers.

Why Developers Hate Your API
Tip after tip it was a great presentation highlighting things we often neglect, but are super important. and how to fix them. I especially liked how each problem was followed by a number of fixes and real world examples.

Designing your RESTful API with RAML
The talk was organized and very well presented. It was all just easy enough to understand and to get one interested in RAML. RAML itself looks pretty cool already and the introduction and the live demo only stressed more on that fact.

Scaling API Design
The concept of thinking big no matter what, was the thing that really stood out for me. And it's always cool to get some insights from a person, who has dealt with such gigantic projects.

SPOIL Your Users with Great Helper Libraries
I didn't really realize how important building helper libraries is. The presentation made it pretty clear that it is, especially for apis aimed for public use. Again thanks for the great content!

Iterators in PHP
The talk was packed with information and presented in a clear and enjoyable way. It was moving a bit too fast at times, but watching it again should clear things up.

Community enabling community
Really passionate and inspiring talk. I am sure it made many of us think about our place in the community and how we can contribute back to it. One of the reasons that during the conference I started to think that I perhaps should be a little more involved in the local development community in general in my city and online.

Going crazy with caching: Caching pages of logged in users
While the subject is interesting and important and the content was clearly well prepared, the talk was just a little bit too dry for me.

Drinking from the Firehose: Real-time Analytics
It was just fascinating! One of my favorite talks of the whole conference. Yes, it lacked a little in detail of the actual implementation and yes, she did speak a little too fast, but I didn't have trouble following and I think that the bigger picture was the important part rather than implementation details. And again, it was fascinating to take a quick look under the hood of how a company deals with such huge amount of data.

Shift Left - Find Bugs As Early As Possible
I didn't expect this talk to be as good as it was. Very fun and well structured and presented. Perhaps it could use more examples and more options for the tooling. And as other people said the "bai mangal" joke was just spot on.

Eating ElePHPants
Very well delivered and really inspiring. I would say proof that everything can be changed for the better if the people involved are willing to commit the time and effort needed. And although I don't use Drupal it was fascinating to get a peek inside the development process even from a high level. Got me spooked a couple of times with the shouting but it served its purpose too, I think.

Asyncronous data processing
Informative and well presented, although I haven't really used queues all that much. I will definitely re-watch it when the videos are up.

Your code are my tests! (Testing Legacy Code)
There are many talks about testing and we still don't do it enough, however showing how you can get a project with no tests at all and how to start adding them inside the presentation is probably the best way to get people on board. Showing that it is not that hard and Michelangelo's passion about it adds to the overall tone and meaning. The obligatory picture of Chris Hartjes was something I expected to see at least once during the conference, but was cool non the less. To attendees looking at this, get his books!

Mentoring: Change the World One Hour at a Time
The tips and resources that Beth shared are really good, but not the best thing about this talk. It is obvious how much she cares about helping other people, and about helping people who want to help and teach others and that is what made the talk interesting and inspiring for me. Perhaps, it could use more jokes, but the topic is more serious and it's also up to the speaker's style, so it's ok.

LDAP - what was that again?
I didn't know almost anything about LDAP before the talk, now I still don't know much, but it was presented engaging enough, to keep me interested the whole time.

Discovering graph structures
Haven't thought about graphs since university and I didn't realize they could be that useful in everyday work. Great talk to remind us just that, well researched and presented too.

Tame your application with logging and monitoring
The main thing I took with me after the talk is that while I try to be consistent with the logs I need to think even more about it, collect them and check them regularly and not only when something goes wrong.

Docker for PHP Developers
A very good talk. I'll have to re-watch it and start tinkering with docker to grasp everything. Although I liked the fact that it was packed with information it got just a little bit tedious for a few moments, but nothing major.

HTTP, PSR-7 and Middleware
I only got to half of the talk, but what I saw was excellent, interesting, informative and sparked a discussion and ignited my interest to finally sit down and read the PSR-7 spec. I can't wait to watch the rest when videos go up.

Turn On The Generator!
In reality the technical part of the talk got a little lost inside the story, but that din't made it bad. This style is really fun and entertaining nonetheless. So I would say 5 for the inspiration and the story but perhaps 3 on the actual substance, it's supposed to be a tech talk after all. Anyhow I would love to hear/see/experience more talks like this, especially in the daycamp4developers/nomadphp format.

Asynchronous PHP with Icicle
The topic is pretty complicated, but the presentation was clear enough especially towards the end. I got a bit monotonous at times, but not enough to lose interest. I've seen and read things about reactphp before but async php is still a topic I haven't researched enough. Icicle seems interesting and I'll be looking more all this after I re-watch the talk a couple more times.

Machine Learning for the Rescue
I didn't even know that there are tools for machine learning in php. While it might not have been quite begging friendly the talk gives a good inside on the process of getting from the point where you think toy need machine learning to actually doing it. And considering the schedule change and that it was not planned to be a full length talk is was great!

Practical PHP Deployment with Jenkins
Jenkins has always been scary to me. However I really liked the plugins that were shown and consider trying to get over that fear. Great side tip was the php qa tools site.

Climbing the Abstract Syntax Tree
While it might not help anyone in their day today as work (or so it seems) knowing the internals of the language at least on a basic level can have a positive impact on how a developer thinks and uses certain features. Props to Mr. Titcumb for making a very approachable talk out of a quite complex topic! All around well prepared and executed.

The Framework is Dead
Probably the most controversial talk of the conference. To be honest I expected to see a riot afterwards, fortunately no such thing happened. After seeing that my personal thoughts on the big monolithic frameworks resonate with those of the larger community I will probably try the proposed approach for my next pet project. The framework is dead! Long live the framework!

Jenkins vs Circle vs Travis
Very good comparison! I've been trying to get into CI for a while and a good comparison with explanation about why each tool fits a certain scenario is quite useful.

Dockerize your unit tests for faster feedback
Some of the Docker stuff still looks like voodoo magic to me. That aside, the presentation style and the passion radiating from the stage is a delight to watch.

How to hack a node app?
He started with some very basic examples but then just blew my mind. I really liked the usage of photos in the slides. There were some code/terminal examples (screenshots and a video I think) that were really tiny and almost impossible to read, but he explained well what was going on.

Building scalable web apps for patients
Krasimir just always has amazing presentations. I don't use React but the information about their whole stack and work process is really valuable. Also A+ for the Game Of Thrones references and using names from it as acronyms that form the structure of the talk. Absolutely brilliant!

The Big "Why Equal doesn't Equal" Quiz
I have never been to a talk as interactive as this. When I saw quiz in the title I didn't expect to be handed pen and paper in the beginning and an actual quiz. That said the points I got were way less than what I expected but I also learned new things in the process.

Testing against Time in JavaScript Applications.
EmberJS isn't the most popular framework in Bulgaria but as someone that actually works on an Ember app that is in production I was really pleased to see this talk in the schedule. Although it was mostly Ember focused there were also tips that are applicable to other frameworks and testing in JavaScript in general. I have to agree that she does speak a little too fast, but for me personally it wasn't a huge problem.

Storing Data in MongoDB
It's always great to see someone so knowledgeable speak! I haven't really used MongoDB and now I know I never really understood it either. Derick somehow made the topic accessible even for someone like me and I was able to follow and understand pretty much everything.

General Feedback about the event
I had a great time! Bogomil and the crew made us all feel welcome and enjoy the event. the talks I managed to see were also great! I was glad to see that the food situation has been improved a lot this year and we didn't need to go off venue to get something to eat. As an attendee it would have been amazing if there were videos of the talks but I understand that it's not an easy thing to pull off with 4 tracks and this many talks. Also having a few minutes between the talks will make it a lot easier for people to switch rooms and network more. Speaker or not I am definitely coming back next year!
