Composer Best Practices
interesting talk I think it could have benefited with practical examples, lots of theory. Found parts a little hard to follow but that may be down to my little experience of using composer.

Bring your PHP application to the next level with React.JS
Fantastic talk, due to the complex nature of the subject I felt the talk would have been better if a longer time slow was available to explain the various concepts at a less fast pace. Really well presented and very engaging, maybe a tool I will invest time in to learn more about.

MVVM and Silex - It's the future
I enjoyed this talk, the introduction to each technology was good, maybe a little too good it left little time for the overall project build, maybe a longer time slot would have benefitted this talk.

To me to much theory a lot of information to take in some practical examples would have been useful.

Continously delivering
Was an interesting talk I would have preferred a little less theory and more code or examples to help drive the point home.

Queues with RabbitMQ
I found this talk really useful, I have no prior knowledge of queues. I'll be looking to leverage these in my applications going forward. The presentation was very clear and easy to follow. It would have been great to see it in action.

Decouple your framework now, thank me later
This talk was on an important topic but was too short it felt like it never really got started. The slides were impossible to read making it that much harder to follow. No real advise or solutions talked about apart from using interfaces more content is needed for this to be more useful.

Eastern Hemisphere Kickoff
Good introduction, the flow of the conference was made clear. Not sure the chosen platform was the right choice, it would be great to be able to have a separate chat room maybe Slack and be able to watch the videos in full screen. Sound quality is up and down but that could be down to my internet connection. At times it's very echoey. The talks themselves are great.

Curing the Common Loop
a really interesting talk I love how the problems were explained them to the solution but felt the pace was really fast paced making it hard to keep up with the content being discussed. once the live coding started the pace was much better, the explanation of what's happening and why was fantastic. I really enjoyed this talk and look will be looking at functional programming.

Taking care of backups with Laravel
An important topic I found the talk hard to follow due to the video quality and for a large part of the talk, the sound was too echoey to understand what was being said. Having said that the information was useful.

Working with Webhooks
Amazing talk, lots of useful tools mentioned to check out. The concept of web hooks has been reinforced. I found the pace perfect and the slides being available right away is really useful.

Connecting to people - creating a cross-device user experience
I found this talk highly entertaining and thought-provoking, I'm now looking to implement credential management into my apps! The pace was fast but not too fast and the humor was done well! Overall really informative!

So you are not using an ORM yet ?
I use an ORM already but went to this talk to get more information on the subject. The talk felt too long to get to started and was far too heavily theoretical. More code examples and case studies would have been great to drive the point home. ORM is such an important tool that needs clearly expressing to those who are not familiar with it. There were some really good points talking about and the talk was informative but I felt it never connected from the theoretical to a practical use case.
