The New Zone: Meditation, Mindfulness, and Code
This talk was a good reminder in focusing on the task at hand, giving it the attention it deserves, instead of jumping back and forth between a lot of different distractions.

Machine Learning with PHP
I knew nothing about machine learning or neural networks before this talk and now I know enough to get started. I still don't quite understand how the input and output files work and would have liked a little more detail on how those are formatted and utilized.

Having never used Angular or Backbone I learned some important gotchas to know before starting out with those frameworks. I really wanted to see more about Cordova and how it helps build mobile apps.

Domain-driven Design Deconstructed
I knew nothing about DDD before this talk and now understand how to get started with it. The talk was a little slow to start and could have benefitted from a few more concrete example. However, there are definitely some techniques that I can use in my next design meeting so I learned something useful.

MySQL's JSON Data Type
It was a good introduction to storing JSON documents in MySQL and covered the functions needed to query and manipulate the documents. I would have like to have a more balanced pros and cons discussion on storing documents versus a full relational table structure.

PHP Session and Password Security
Good overview of sessions and password hashing. So many sites out there aren't yet using the most secure methods of hashing or protecting the session and this talk gave a good overview on just how easy it is to add a high level of security to your sites.
