Good overview and great enthusiasm though nothing really new

No more excuses left - let's build great things
While I wouldn't agree with every single point, the overall message was very clear and thought provoking. Probably the talk with the highest direct impact for me.

KEYNOTE- API's, and Data Intensive Applications Composed in Cloud
Rather uninspired marketing appearance topped off with one of the least appealing slide sets. Huge difference in quality to the following two keynotes.

PHP is the king, nodejs is the prince and Python is the fool
I'm a bit divided on this one: While the presentation was great, I found the content to be too shallow. It was kind of a "We did this and it worked, we tried that and it didn't work", but without really giving any meaningful reason. Don't bash technologies (like Python in the title or Ruby in the talk) without going into some detail.

Where Have We Been and Where Are We Going?
Very well done and based on a huge amount of experience, though not as inspiring as Kevlin right before.

Keynote - Small Is Beautiful
Clever, funny, inspiring — that's what a keynote should be like.

Functional Programming You Already Know
Much like the keynote, this was a thought-provoking and well worth the time.

Keynote Microsoft: The new Microsoft in a cloud-first, mobile-first open world.
Well presented and Microsoft did really change, but the presentation tried just a little too hard. For example the part about UEFI: I didn't think it fit with the rest of the talk and was only appointing blame: Look, we are all good now, it's just others who make us appear bad. Nevertheless, inspiring and not a sales pitch :)

Keynote Amazon: Speed up Development with Amazon Web Services.
I had high hopes for this talk, but it felt somewhat unfocused. Filled with buzzwords and rushing through features, I would have loved fewer but more pronounced topics.

The continuous PHP Pipeline
Great overview how all the bits and pieces of a good infrastructure fit together. What I liked most, was that for each step there was a list of possible solutions (for example build servers) and then the specification: "We're using Jenkins".

"One last thing" about Open Source Databases - The upcoming MySQL 5.7
Great overview of the history and future of MySQL — highlighting better and lesser known new features and improvements. I think the main take-away is that MySQL is not a second class citizen under Oracle's ownership, but that it's progressing faster than ever.

Securing Your HTTP API with Hawk
For me this talk took too much for granted. I would have benefited from some background information, like not only saying we're using X in this situation, but also some background how X works (yes, diagrams would have helped) and probably why Y and Z wouldn't work in this situation.

Migrating your Database with Phinx
Working live coding *yay* So PHP has a lot of the Rails goodies as well, you just need to find them — so this talk was a great introduction.

Building Apps with the AWS SDK for PHP
Very practical, detailed, and well explained with graphics. Great starting point and included all the required steps to evolve your infrastructure further.

Running PHP on Azure
Nice overview of Azure in general and running PHP applications in specific. Had a lot of ground to cover, so the talk couldn't go into too much detail, but the principles should be clear.

En route pour PHP7
Great overview of everything coming in PHP7. And it was in English — thanks for that!

HTTP/2 - what does it bring and does it matter?
Great overview, short and to the point.

Fast and fpsious
While the content on the slides looked promising, I found it pretty hard to understand the speaker. PS: I didn't get the title right away, maybe FPSious would have been clearer

It's my way or the highway - How to make your code usable by others
I'd call this talk "fast and furious", but it was simply too much in too little time: * Why did we even talk about composer, gem,... when we actually wanted to focus on the code? I think we should have skipped the library part entirely when talking about coding principles and code quality. * We had PHP examples and I didn't really understand the references to Java. * Some code examples were so rushed, that it was unclear if it was actually good or bad. * The background noise was clever.

Real-time, asynchronous collaboration on JSON
I found the content highly interesting and the presentation was also done incredibly well.

Building highly available and fault tolerant sites on a budget
Nicely done. While I'm not sure you should only rely on free tools for your professional work, I liked the Sentry reference, since it's a really neat application. It was a relatively high level overview, but it was definitely suitable for developers.

Functional programming: Academic curiosity or industry's secret weapon?
I would have liked this as a regular talk, but it didn't feel right for a keynote. Also the code examples felt pretty rushed and I couldn't see the major advantage in them (actually, they were not that much shorter since the imperative implementation).

How You can Maintain 30+ sites and still have time for New Projects
Nicely done. While I'm not sure you should only rely on free tools for your professional work, I liked the Sentry reference, since it's a really neat application. It was a relatively high level overview, but it was definitely suitable for developers.

Building highly available and fault tolerant sites on a budget
(Sorry, wrong talk and I can't seem to edit it) This touched quite a lot of topics and managed to get a good balance between breadth and depth. While it wouldn't have shown admins too much new stuff, it felt right for developers.

The API of the API
Nice slides, good talk. Not sure if it was a good combination with the previous talk on JSON patch or if it had a little too much overlap, but this isn't the speaker's fault.
