Guiding Object-Oriented Design with Tests
This was incredibly useful for me, I learned a lot and the examples were good. It was a little distracting at times when the speaker would talk often about "We could do this but I didn't put it in the slide" or "we might have 3 methods if I had put them in", etc. I suggest either put it in or don't bring it up.

Domain Driven Design for Mere Mortals
This was the first information I had on DDD and it was very hard to pay attention at first, it felt like it was moving really slowly and dry compared to some other talks. However the second half was very informative and made me want to learn more.

Refactor, Don't Rebuild
Great talk, probably my favorite of the weekend, however towards the end it seemed like we had enough examples of *why*, and could have used more examples of *how*.

Does your code measure up?
Great introduction to these tools, I can't wait to introduce some of these into our project!

The Things Your Application Does While You're Not Looking
This talk was excellent, I got a lot out of it. My only suggestion is maybe to speed up the explanation about the different levels of logging (info, alert, etc), as it felt a little long and redundant there. That probably could have been cut in half. Otherwise very very good :)

Talmudic Maxims to Maximize Your Growth as a Developer
So motivating and inspiring. It definitely helped me change my way of looking at my coworkers and totally inspired me to get even more involved in the community. Totally deserved the standing ovation it got :)

API Pain Points
My team attended at least two API talks last year before starting to work on our own API in the past few months, and I was very pleased to see we have been doing it "the right way". I personally didn't get much out of this talk because it wasn't new information, but it was highly entertaining. Phil, please slow down a little when speaking. Us Americans can't all understand you easily, and the non-americans on my team probably had an even harder time.

PHP 7 Jumpstart
Great talk - very humorous and fun. I really liked how this helped me identify some things about PHP 5 I didn't even know about in addition to the PHP 7 changes. Tons of info!

Is your code SOLID?
This talk was so good! I have always focused on the S in SOLID, and really needed to learn more about the rest of it. O: OCP - was one I never could understand even though I had read some blogs, but Julien explained it in a way I could finally understand it, and distill down into a tweet even. Examples were great. Talk felt a little repetitive in a few places.

Cloud is the New Normal - The Joint
This just seemed like an Amazon presentation - like the one I saw at an Amazon sales presentation. Not super useful TBH.

Fear Not the Machine of State!
I learned so much from this talk, it was great! Was a completely new concept for me, but he provided several great examples of code smells that indicate you should use the State Pattern, and I could immediately see where in my project it would help. Great job!

The future of Symfony : Symfony3
Lots of great info - some of the examples took a long time to explain, and it was a little confusing sometimes which was the new way and which was the old way. That said, I got a lot out of it, and am excited about Symfony 3!

Co-operative Multitasking with Generators
Great explanation of generators, and how to use them to write asynchronous code. Your presentation was so entertaining :) The volunteer bubble sort was great.
