Integrating Communities
The talk was well delivered and Jenny is plainly a confident speaker. But as others have alluded to it felt like a telling off. I guess I'm 'lucky' to fall in to a category of delegate that doesn't ever suffer from discrimination, though. I'm not saying that these topics don't need to be discussed - and to be honest my three thumb rating probably reflects my feeling toward the fact that this type of talk has to exist at all (I really wish that everyone were decent human beings and didn't need this type of talk), rather than a reflection ont he delivery of the talk. Personally, I would've preferred a more positive opening talk to the day.

Building an API with Apigility
I thought this was very well delivered and contained a perfect level of information to get me excited about using Apigility on future projects. It was pitched and described at the correct level and I took away exactly what I expected when I first read the talk, which is indicative of a successful presentation in my mind.

MVVM and Silex - It's the future
Really enjoyed the talk, it got my appetite going for working with these new JS frameworks. As suggested by others I think ditching the Silex stuff would be best for the talk - I can understand why you didn't though as it was a PHP conference after all!

Build RESTful APIs easily with Symfony
I think that for me this talk suffered for two main reasons a) The introduction to Apigility one earlier in the day was much more exciting, as it showed how easy writing a RESTful API can be - in comparison, the technologies presented here seemed to make the job really quite arduous in comparison b) The presentation style wasn't as engaging as other talks and I struggled to maintain concentration. These two points aside, I have a lot of respect for anyone that stands and presents complex subjects like this to a group of peers - and there was no doubting your knowledge and experience in this area.

Understanding the OWASP Top 10
As I said on twitter - this was presented with a good level of humour and with confidence. Even though many of the issues in the list are things that have been on my radar for a few years, I wasn't bored at any point throughout, and I would happily attend another talk from Gary in future conferences. Well done

Why Your Test Suite Sucks
My biggest value takeaway(s) from the conference came from this talk and revolved around how to test integrations with third party services, and how further abstraction can make your code more testable. The talk was well paced and delivered in understandable terms. I know it is hard on the main track but I would've enjoyed a little more 'live demoing' - maybe taking a real life example and writing the specs/solution to that with audience participation. Maybe something that would be suited to a smaller room, though!

Every Millisecond Counts: Performance & UX
Great talk and really useful takeaways, thank you. I liked how you were prepared to say I don't know when asked questions you didn't know the answer to, it gave even more weight to the answers and advice that you did give

Step Into Debugging
First talk of the conference to have me interested enough to a) not look at my phone and b) participate with questions. Great humorous delivery and very smooth demo. Top job

Large-scale websites performance optimisation tricks
Obviously a very clever developer with a big success story, but I felt it was a little too granular in detail and I didn't get what I desired from the talk. Really impressed that you can talk publicly in a second language!

Imposter Syndrome and Individual Competence
Didn't expect to like the talk especially with the chirpy American style ;), but I did, great delivery and slides. The humour about people not raising their hands tickled me. Nice job
