The Code Manifesto
Very powerful talk. I was so happy that this was the one to open the conference. This topic is supposed to make people uncomfortable, this is why it is vital to talk about.

What To Expect From PHP7
I always love Lorna's talks. They make me so excited to get out there and use the new tech. Last year it prompted me to upgrade my personal servers; this year, I'm going to be setting up a PHP7 dev server at work so we can use the latest version. Also, spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP!

Imposter Syndrome and Individual Competence
Extremely well presented talk, pacing and pitch were perfect. The only tiny improvement would be, as someone else mentioned, to highlight the conclusion as bit more.

Doctrine ORM Good Practices and Tricks
Although I disagreed with some of the content, I agree that this was a well thought out and presented talk. A couple of mini points: - Make it clear on your slides which things are "to avoid" and which are "do this" - because it wasn't always clear - and sometimes I missed this due to the fast pace of the talk (not too fast, but after lots of talks it was a lot to take in) - Clearly the result of a language barrier, as English is probably the only language that doesn't gender it's nouns - but please use "they" instead of "he" when referring to developers and DBAs etc, thank you.

Every Millisecond Counts: Performance & UX
Amazing talk, just felt like it could be slowed down a little bit to make it easier to follow (not sure it was intentional fast, given the title). As Ed said, nice to see someone unafraid to admit lack of knowledge :)

Large-scale websites performance optimisation tricks
Some useful take-aways, including the 204-trick. But felt like a lot of the beginning could have been condensed - I think a lot of us came for tips and tricks rather than a full description of the case study. Still, it didn't lack for useful information.

Elastic scaling in a (micro)service oriented architecture
Some many useful suggestions that I was be talking to the team about. Engaging speaker as well.

Version Control - tips, tricks and good citizenship
Less useful for me, but some great advice in there for people who are not as experienced with version control. I think the main problem was the room full of git-snobs (:) and the basis of the talk being SVN (not the speaker's fault) - it is surprising how many companies do still use SVN, and common sense applies everywhere. All in all, was a clear and well presented topic.

Behind the Scenes of Maintaining an Open Source Project
Made me feel guilty about sometimes submitting time-wasting issues, and not thinking about the people behind the code! An eye opening talk, well presented. And thank you for Composer :)

Security Theatre
So much useful information. Makes you feel very wary about trusting anyone with personal information.

All the cool kids...
Very useful talk. Some of the slides went by a little fast, but that could have been just the post lunch 2nd day haze.

Got 15 minutes? Then give something back!
A fitting end to a brilliant conference. Always ending up making me feel guilty for not contributing enough :)

Comic book continuity and Git rebase
Really enthusiastic speaker, lots of energy. Content was a bit basic for myself, however, it was beautifully presented and well explained.
