Adventures in Advanced Git
Impressive how casual she goes through the dungeons of GIT like it's an afternoon stroll. First time demo style she says but I find it hard to believe :) Well prepared and smooth.

Abstract Machines
Mind blown! Although I don't think I understood half of it (so in all probability even less) it was fascinating. Igor's full of enthusiasm and energy which made him a joy to listen to.

Practical Event Sourcing
For me the most interesting talk of the conference! Just because it offers such a different view on data than we're used to, it grabbed me and I'm still obsessed with the idea. Also very well presented with understandable simple code examples and a relaxed attitude.

Principles of PHP Package Design
Good to hear some academic approach to this issue. Very relevant and well presented. Don't know if it would help the goal of your presentation but maybe mix in some practical situations as well. I know this talk represents the ideal situation but as you also know, we don't live in that world all the time :) You could show us how to know the rules but to then break them in moderation?

Making the Most of your Agile Process
Awesome presentation skills! You can see that you're so comfortable in front of a crowd while still sticking to your true self; impressive. The topic was fun too. We all recognised the situations, we've all been there and you gave some pretty helpful pointers.

Modern front-end with the eyes of a PHP developer
What they said about the speed ;) The content was exactly what I needed. I'm a pure backend dev so it was good to catch up on the tools and how they compare to the PHP tools.

What happened? An introduction to event sourcing in PHP
Hi Marijn, good talk yesterday, really enjoyed it. Also nice to hear from someone who actually uses it in day-to-day live, not just theoretical. You might want to tweak the order of the topics in the talk a bit. I think some confusion existed around read models because a lot of attention went out to the write models. No biggie but the read models are the easiest to grasp so think about putting them in the first few slides, then focus on explaining how to get the data in there. Obviously you saw that some of the slides were a bit on the challenging side for us with less than 20-20 vision :) I know you can't possibly do it in 45 mins but what might be interesting for a longer talk/follow up talk is the real challenges that you encountered. What went well (by accident/through good knowledge), what was a real pain. Give us some pointers from experience, along with the examples to back that up. I'll stop rambling now :) Thanks for the talk!

Models and Service Layers; Hemoglobin and Hobgoblins
Loved the topic almost as much as your presentation style! I can also totally see why people feel humbled by your knowledge :) You have a good mix of diving into the matter and some comic relieve in between. There was a lot of stuff to cover but you were concise, which kept it clear (for most of us). I couldn't find the slides yet so I can't pinpoint it but I lost your train of thought for a while, about 2/3 into the presentation, around the point where you introduced the Command Bus. That's probably just me though :) To conclude: impressive talk, lots of new stuff to think about, loved the style (and the hat, but that goes without saying, right?)

Ansible Project Deploy
I like your style. You're comfortable in front of the group, no rehearsed jokes but just you hooking into the situation and what's happening. There's enough depth in the talk but I think it would help if you could gives us an overview first. I personally know Saltstack so I think I have some knowledge of these kind of tools but was struggling for a while when you were talking about modules, playbooks, etc. Just one slide with the idiom and how those elements work together on an abstract level would help. I personally don't necessarily agree with Rene here. This is complex enough as is, a demo wouldn't make it easier to understand I think. Keep it up!

Manage Your Content with Elasticsearch
Easily one of the best in-depth Elasticsearch talks/tutorials I've seen so far! Presented in such a relaxed and own way that made it easy to pick up the gold nuggets. Like we talked about after the tutorial: there's always this balance to strike between how much in depth (aka how much of the listeners I'm going to lose) vs how generic (but maybe less attractive for more advanced users). For me this balance was excellent (keeping in mind that at the company I work we are using more advanced stuff)! Maybe others think differently, let's see :) I loved the live demo! It adds to the relaxed way of presenting and makes me feel like you know exactly what you're talking about. Sorry but couldn't think of anything that you can improve :( Thanks for picking your brain and maybe we'll talk later

Puli: PHP's Next Package Revolution
Interesting concept, definitely has a place in the php ecosystem. Hope you get some traction amongst the big projects. Regarding the talk, for me it was still quite abstract although you gave some examples. Maybe it's also because Puli tries to solve multiple (related) problems. You could try to separate those in different sections in the presentation? Good luck with the project!

Symfony2 security
Sorry to say that I found this not tutorial-worthy. Half way I walked out because the pace, for me, was way too low. I can't say anything about the second half, maybe it picked up. The build up was ok but seemed to come right off of Symfony's documentation. I might have high standards but in tutorials I'd like to get some deep insights, real life experiences steering us away from the bad stuff and pointing us to the sweet nectar the instructor already discovered. There was none of this in my opinion (as said, in the first half) so it was basically following the Symfony Book. I'm really not trying to bash Joshua, he's undoubtably a fine speaker but this gave me very little value in terms of new knowledge. Glad that the organisers let me into another tutorial that pleasantly surprised me. Ways to improve this would be to go off the beaten path: don't do username + password authorization but put up an LDAP server somewhere and let us try to do something with that. Try to create insane Voter rules that contradict each other and let us see how to resolve that. Just don't follow the basic scenarios, we know them.

JWT: To authentication & beyond!
Good start of a speaking career. Your English is good, just a few pronunciation mistakes (signature is what stuck with me). Maybe have a look at the structure of your talk: starting out with the technical part and then coming back to use cases was, to me, backwards. All in all a nice first talk!

Scaling your website
Great stuff! Good structure and build up, first going vertical, then horizontal. It gave a good overview of the tech involved (did you leave out Varnish for a reason?) and the reasoning behind using each piece. You looked relaxed giving it, which always makes it easy to listen.

Live broadcasting with PHP
Such a cool concept in a context that I'm not familiar with at all. Everything was quite clear and the (accidental) live demo was cool; theory is nice but to see it come alive and live is what it's all about! If I have to name something: try to find a way to become more comfortable talking to a group of people. Of course that also comes by doing it so great start doing this at the unconf!

One box doesn't fit all
Good build up, especially for beginners in this area I think it made sense. I think you introduced the right tools. One I would add is a service discovery tool (Consul for instance but whatever): how else are you going to find all those horizontally scaled services ;) To me, the beginning was a bit slow though. The example with Stackoverflow took quite some time and I couldn't find what it had to do with horizontal scaling but I could've overlooked something. I liked the clean slides, just one purpose each time, no(t much) text, just right :) Also good that monitoring was addressed, this is the start of scaling out. Last thing: you first talk about Varnish as a good reverse proxy and then show a reverse proxy example in Nginx, maybe switch that to Varnish? Thanks for the talk!
