Nice little primer on Laravel as well as covering queue usage, will definately be reviewing the video as it is something that has yet to sink into my brain!

The Code Manifesto
Brilliant talk that does a great job at highlighting some of the key issues with diversity in our industry. The overall tone and the emotion that came across in the talk made it very powerful.

Simple Machine Learning
I didnt know anything about Machine Learning beyond the general concept of "data goes in, the computer does things, patterns come out" so I was going in completely new. The talk did a great job as an introducing what machine learning is and exampled really well how its implemented.

Every Millisecond Counts: Performance & UX
Great talk, good insight into how HTTP2 helps solve a lot of issues. The statistics presented on companies measuring how much user engagement/money they lose from millisecond slowdowns really helps drive home how important performance is. The "UX" part of the title made me assume going into it that there would be coverage of front-end UI practices to help mitigate performance issues, but that's probably just from my own POV and interpretation of UX. Wasnt a big deal.

PSR-7 HTTP messages in the wild
Ironically I think the most valuable snippet I took from this talk was the fact composer virtual packages were a thing. The code samples were great and the coverage of backwards compatible methods of implementing PSR7 messages was really valuable.

Elastic scaling in a (micro)service oriented architecture
Awesome talk. Came into the talk knowing not much about the practical implementation of distributed micro-services and I followed it all and learned a lot. Very comprehensive and insightful.

Real-Time Data Pipelines
Awesome talk. I think this was one of my favourite if not the favourite talks of the conference. Great stage presence and really clearly delivered. Really appreciated the review-like process of going through the progress of different versions of the solution built within AOL.
