Introduction to Laravel
Very well organized. I appreciated your having the download with the _demo folders ready when we needed them. Really well-done! I would have preferred that the questions asked to you were repeated and then answered to the group, though. We could have all learned from the answers.

Fundamental Object-Oriented PHP
I really was able to understand the examples as Jeff explained them. I got a lot out of the talk. I do wish we'd kept the exercises. They would have been good!

Dev Divas: Amazing Women Who Shaped Computer Tech
This talk included a great selection of women contributors and inventors of tech! This also really highlighted the ways in which the contributions of women were diminished has delayed significant progress in technology. This presentation was well-researched and introduced me to some really great technical women that I'd never heard of. I even learned more about those women that I had already heard of! My reading list is growing, too!

Timeline for a Talk
The focus on what you wanted to accomplish with your talk, without using the word know, was really helpful. I really want to incorporate that into my abstracts because it makes my talk more focused. I also really appreciated your detailed speaker timeline! It will help to be more prepared head of time.

Docker for Developers
I got a great idea of how Docker can work and how that is different from the vagrant that I use at work. I learned about some tools that I can use to get started with Docker. As a tutorial, it was difficult to view and follow the examples. Color at the prompt in bash would be helpful as well as increasing size. The video demos of the terminal were helpful when you paused them, so maybe breaking them into smaller chunks would make the commands easier to follow. You explained what was happening very well! Even though I couldn't read the terminal bits, I followed the concepts by your description, I just couldn't always read the command being typed.

Manage Your Content with Elasticsearch
Samantha has great knowledge of the content and without my typing the commands, I understood clearly what was happening on her screen. She has a great understanding of the topic and always gives helpful responses to questions. I love hearing Samantha talk. I always learn a lot!

Extreme Team Building: Surviving an Ocean Crossing
This was an incredible story about crossing the Pacific! It was a story about team dynamics under crisis situations. And it tied back into helpful ways of managing and working within your team. This keynote was so wonderful! It felt like something that would have been at a larger, corporate event. Absolutely inspiring!

The Life of an If Statement
This information was really interesting and clearly explained! I've been away from assembler for a while now. Some visual improvements would help the attendee follow the ideas presented. Bolder arrows when we are following a path and maybe the use of different colors to help discern step one from step two. It might be helpful to see the if statement beside the machine code as an inset. It might help carry the ideas forward of which section of the code we are in. I don't know if you plan to give this talk again, but I think it was really great and would recommend it to friends!

Building Your First MVP in Laravel
This was a really great overview of the Laravel framework and the many ways that Laravel saves time and simplifies development. I am really excited to look back at the slides and source code you shared to follow the specifics of the invoicing system you built. I know there were some details that I missed during the presentation. You were really great at answering the many questions that were asked as well. Really great talk!

Laravel 5 Middleware
This was a great presentation! I learned a lot about Laravel's built-in middleware as well as request handling. The examples included were very interesting, and I'd like to see those built out a little more. Your explanation of these concepts was really concise and to-the point. I had many a-ha moments from the way you described this.

Don't work for PHPCS, make PHPCS work for you
A very great review of how to leverage phpcs for your own development or your team. The speaker had great familiarity with the material and what would be most useful to us. The room had several technical issues, but she handled them so well. The demos were clear and demonstrated the usefulness of the tool.

A Common Taxonomy of Bugs and How to Squash Them
Great knowledge of your talk and slides. You made the technical difficulties amusing anecdotes and managed to teach us some interesting new tools to solve our bug problems! I really liked the points you made about not being able to scale unicorns and felt like the bug taxonomies were a helpful pneumonic for looking at the pattern of the bug and not being stuck in the specifics.
