Adding 1.21 Gigawatts to Applications with RabbitMQ
Decent talk, though "Why RabbitMQ?" didn't really discuss alternatives i.e. ZeroMQ.

Composer Best Practices
Explained a lot of the technical points, but didn't really go beyond the information in the manual.

Barely Enough Design
Good explanation of responsibility driven design. Content was very good, but the presentation was a bit disjointed. Could do with title slides and/or agenda to break it up.

Continuously delivering PHP projects
Very good talk. A lot of discussion of technologies used, techniques used and advice to get continuous delivery going at your company.

The NoSQL Store everyone ignores: PostgreSQL
Very good talk. Enlightening, and as a pgsql user of 5 years I learned a significant amount.

HHVM at Etsy: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Very good talk about issues Etsy ran into upgrading to PHP. Also went over performance gains and other benefits. Digressed a little into some tools which aren't HHVM specific, but a worthwhile talk.

Be a Bold Coder
A lot of time is spent on bare essentials that most people know: coding standards, rtfm, asking/giving help. The speaker was engaging & enthusiastic, encourage more work on the talk because it's a great idea.

Understanding the OWASP Top 10
Good talk -- things I've seen before but sure a lot of people gained from the content of the presentation. Humorous & enjoyable.

My Debugging And Performance Toolbox
Felt like the speaker tried to go over too much in a single talk. It would have been nice to split this into two talks, one aimed at debugging and one at testing. It was interesting, but very much a skim over the topics rather than an in-depth tutorial.

Open Source, Love, and Social Responsibility
Talk was too political for my liking -- lots of references to social justice and wealth redistribution rather than practical market-based solutions which we as developers are able to implement. Liked the content, especially discussions of how developers can help the third world, but would like to know how Davey would go about getting ahold of all the tel nos to send text messages to as I doubt there's a per-village public database.

Eating spaghetti with Symfony
Interesting talk, a lot of good point, but too much time was spent in the warm-up (cold turkey vs chicken little, what is spaghetti etc) which took away time from the valuable content.

Elastic scaling in a (micro)service oriented architecture
A lot of content. Seems like this could be 2 talks or a longer slot. Will need to re read slides.

Introducing Zend Framework 3

I saw the future, and its web servers were written in PHP
I've seen a lot of the technologies presented in this talk, in isolation, but it was really interesting to see someone tie them together, compare them, and offer an educated estimation as to how we can use them.

It's all about the goto
The content of this talk was very good, and Derick's knowledge is top notch, but it felt like it lacked structure toward the start, and was difficult to get into. Slides changed very quickly despite containing a lot of information, which made it tough to take notes.
