Voodoo-PHP
Great talk. Although the introduction to voodoo as a religion seemed kind of odd and was not really of any importance to the talk itself as the topic was not picked up again during the talk. Covered some really neat/freaky stuff that is good to know, but hard to find a use case for ;)

WordPress Templates with Twig
Interesting topic ! Though of limited use when not directly involved with word press. Also, the performance seemed to have suffered from switching to English. Probably would have been better in German.

"Symfony best practice" - Diskussionsrunde
Guter Einblick für Neulinge. Gerade die Code Beispiele des Container waren bestimmt für viele aufschlussreich. Die Präsentation hätte sicherlich etwas schöner sein können, aber Inhalte zählen. Wichtig war vor allem, dass gesagt wurde, dass Best Practises keine 100% Regeln sind.

Jenkins for PHP projects
As usual a solid performance by Stephan ! I feel like the slides featured too many images though and too little nitty gritty detail. Although some other aspects would have been nice - e.g. the setup and deployment process (local installation, running on a vm or docker ...), the necessary infrastructure (how many agents are needed what are their specs ?). Also, the thread running through the whole presentation could be highlighted more - instead of jumping from setting to setting screenshot.

Superhelden im Porzellanladen
Nice slides and theme ! Helpful topic - yet funny and entertaining. Talk and slide content was a bit repetitive though.

Maßgeschneiderte Testdaten mit Faker und Alice
Nice talk, though I already read the published article on the topic. A few more custom code examples and extensions would have been nice.

Wie wir Code analysieren
This talk really convinced me of the usefulness of code metrics. I tried the demonstrated code during the session. Great tool! Also really talented speaker.

Go lernen für einen Symfony Websocket Proxy
I'm not really sure this talk was for me, as I already knew parts of go. But the example was really useful and demonstrated key concepts of both involved languages.

Pattern Library meets Symfony
Very entertaining and delightful talk. Yet rather interesting for front-end and back-end developers alike. Nice for a change.

Ein wenig Theorie über Naming
Schönes Vortragsthema abseits des sonstige Tech-Phrasengedresche. Viele interessante Denkanstösse dabei (wenn man die Ansichten des Referenten teilt ;-) ). Auch optisch waren alle Slides sauber und aufgeräumt. Das Thema Naming gibt sicherlich noch viel mehr her, da es eine Problem-Domäne ist die es nicht nur im Entwicklung-Umfeld gibt, hier wären vielleicht Einblicke in andere Bereiche hilfreich gewesen. Der rote Faden der sich ab Beginn durch den Vortrag zog ist leider zwischendrin etwas verloren gegangen. Darüber hinaus werden oftmals Konflikte aufgezeigt (FIG-Standards vs. intuitives Naming etc.) für die kein Lösungsweg aufgezeigt wurde / werden kann. Dies ist nicht immer die Schuld des Referenten, schränkt aber natürlich den Mehrwert des Vortrages an diesen Stellen ein.

Keynote
Great keynote, minor audio problems and one beamer was a bit hard to read. Very interesting stuff though, too bad it's not all readily available to play with.

PSR-6 & Symfony Cache: fast by standards
I wish they talk focused a bit more about the process and decision making that led to the psr, or showed more implementation detail via examples. This way it was kind of in the middle of both worlds and not as great as it could have been.

Soup up Symfony - Keep PHP Alive Between Requests
Very interesting topic. This must be considered helpful in every day work. Also, great presentation and presenter. I'm sure we'll see more talks by Andrew in the future. Very promising.

5 Years with Symfony
Solid talk, helpful inside and every day tips. As usual with talks and long term resumes like that, they are highly opinionated, so should be taken with a grain of salt. Also, some deeper technical insight would have been nice.

Sound of Symfony - Live on Stage!
I really expected more from this... The introduction was kind of slow, there was no proper agenda apparent and the panel lacked chemistry. Must admit though: I left ~30min in

Symfony Distributions Reloaded
As usual great keynote, plenty of insight into the work behind symfony. A bit slow at times and kind of a long build up until the final reveal of Flex. Really looking forward to it though.

The ContentManager loves the tree
Brief introduction to JCR and PHPCR, also showed some code examples and compared different tree models. It was not totally obvious though why one should prefer a content repository over a "traditional" database. A more deep dive approach into the pros and cons would have been nice. Also, as with all "Let-me-show-you-something-new"-talks I think it needs a "when to NOT use this" section, or a lessons learned part. The talk lacked a certain coherence in language and articulation. Nevertheless, I you have never heard of content repositories before it offered an understandable overview of the topic.

Surviving Your Next Data Breach
While I stand by the opinion that Anna is a great speaker and teacher, this talk in particular offered little new insights. Also the title was kind of misleading, after all, most of the talk was focused on prevention and best practices and NOT on surviving your next breach once it happens (which is what I was looking forward to, as it is the way more interesting and commonly less talked about subject). Still, the discussion she moderated afterwards was rather interesting and all in all the talk did of course offer some new ideas for use in my daily business, I guess it's just not what I was hoping for.

You just became a team lead. What now?
Good talk. Even though it is titled "You just became a team lead", it starts of with how to get there - seems like an odd mismatch. Also, really verbose slides, which is a matter of personal opinion, but at least makes it easier to read up on it later. The insight was worth it and the personal touch made hearing it worthwhile :)

Another engaging keynote that really makes you want to start trying out all the good stuff in Symfony 4 / Flex. Also, as usual Fabien hits the time limit ;)

Secure your application data using Symfony
Really insightful talk about security on all fronts: Physical, software & architecture. A good talk always gives you some food for thought as well as actionable ideas - both were to be had here. Also my harry-potter-fandom-heart really appreciated the reference to Mad Eye ;)

Behat Best Practices with Symfony
Great speaker as well as clean slides (though a bit hard to read due to the projector setup, no one at fault here). The talk provided some new concepts on how to use and configure behat for domain specific testing.

Workflow in real life
Ok guys. I get it, this talk was bad. There is no denying it. But our comments here are supposed to point out what could be improved. After all, all speakers aspire to grow and they need our (helpful) feedback to do so. Having said that, here we go: Always, ALWAYS, face the audience when giving a talk. No need to read from slides behind you, they are also on the laptop screen that is in front of you. I know this might be hard if English is not your native language, but given this is an English/international conference, we should at least be able to expect audible sentences and words. If you do not (yet) feel comfortable giving a talk in English practices some more. It help to write out your talk beforehand. And read it out aloud to train. Slides should (in most cases anyway) support your talk, not be all there is. Or, vice versa, your spoken talk should always include more information than what is already on the slides. Otherwise people will just read the slides (faster than you talk) and doze off. I get that you need/want to plug your company / project but you should at least point out why that is relevant to the topic of the case (or make it way shorter). I wish you all the best and hope you can appreciate this feedback for what it is. This is nothing personal. We (speakers) have all been there. We grow eventually and that is all that matters.

Decoupling an application with message queues
This talk was interesting as it offered insight in tools and best practises. However, given its context (in the advanced slot) it somehow missed its goal. It's a great introductory talk for sure (given the talks beginning and pace). It's just not advanced.(-1) Also the talk's title "Decoupling an application with message queues" suggested more architectural insight and content than what was actually delivered. (-1) For whatever it is worth though, the slides and the speaker where both pretty good.

Keynote
As usual, well presented and obviously well prepared. I especially liked how Nicolas did the live coding part in tandem to the talk - great idea ! However, I have to hold one point hostage here, as the keynote was (again, as usual) too long. And all talks should be rated on how well they manage their time budget - no matter I much we like the speaker ;)

What we learned by merging two big Symfony based applications
This talk contained to little information to be actually placed in the advanced track. Most of the problems mentioned were foreseeable and the more interesting part (how they were actually solved) was barely mentioned. Also, answering every question with "it depends" shows either a lack of confidence or knowledge. I'm not saying there is a definitive answer for everything, but when trying to be an export you should at least be able to point people in a certain direction. Another thing that bothers me is that this talk was finished ~10mins too early. Either plan your talk better or have some more things to say when there are no more questions. I always feel it's kind of cheap, when people effectively deliver 25-30min of talk in a 40min slot. Especially when attendees pay for the conference.

Trend analysis and machine learning in PHP
This was an excellent talk and might just be the best talk of the conference. (Hey sensiolabs, maybe introduce a prize for that ?). It not only explains the basic math behind machine learning, but also showed live code examples. Additionally, all questions (during the session and after) were answered in a precise and knowledgable manner. Kudos !

API Platform and Symfony
Really interesting talk and subject. This session however suffered from a few problems: 1) Too much information in the slides 2) Spoken too fast in non-native language 3) General information density / lack of focus. Maybe try to focus on some aspects of APIPlatform instead of showing of everything.

Building an Open-Source Campaign Platform for the new President of France
This talk was not technical enough and also offered to little insight into management / political aspects of the project to make up for that. Also, most of the information was already presented elsewhere (e.g. symfony blog).

UnConference track - Lets talk about Sylius and ecommerce with Symfony components
Hard to judge a talk that claims to not be a talk, but then ends up being just that. I feel like there was a focus missing, also no clear thread was visible from a story telling point of view. The call to action at the end could have been more precise.

A year of Symfony
As usual, this is really just a summary of everything that has already been published elsewhere. Thus the rating "worth hearing". If you are however not connected to the community in general that much, there will be several new tips and tricks in it for you. Those that consider themselves "symfony professionals" will hardly find things to take away from this session.
