The Action-Domain-Responder Design Pattern
I really enjoyed this talk. The speaker spoke fairly slowly (English not being his native language) but explained his points clearly with good vocabulary. As others have mentioned it ran a little short but that wasn't a problem for me. A slightly deeper look into the code to look at some more complex situations would have been nice.

Two > One: Modernising Magento for 2015 & Beyond
I went along knowing little about Magento, really as a "should I just wait until v2?" before getting into it. The talk didn't require a lot of prerequisite knowledge and explained the roadmap well.

Really great presentation that sparked a lot of talk with a colegue about the refinements we need to make; and funny too.

Queues with RabbitMQ
Really enjoyed the talk - great overview and potential pain points covered. It would have been nice to see a working example, either live demo (!) or prerecorded to show it all working

Developing Your Soft Skills
I think “soft skills” are extremely under-rated among developers yet are the most important things when working as a team. The session was great, got me out of my comfort zone, and taught me some good ways to challenge myself to become a better communicator. I would have liked some practice on having difficult conversations within the session but I spoke to Kenneth about this afterwards. Enjoyable and recommended.
