Introduction to Event Sourcing and CQRS
After attending various talks on this topics it was nice to see some actual code. Something of which many people say: "ah it's not very interesting, just boilerplate..." The coding part went a little too fast for me to be able actually participate but just reading the screen was informative too.

Uncon: Developers are just like humans
Interesting 'feel good' soft talk encouraging people to reach out to each other at the times they need it

Uncon: PHP Hooligans
While it seemed to start with very black/white statements it appeared to be just that way to start a discusssion. It was a lot of fun, one point that could be improved is that the statements were sometimes related to each other very much.

Uncon: VIM for PHP developers
Informative, friendly speaker. I'd like to see improvements on the flow and speed of the talk. Also I do believe Ike knows what he's talking about and has a well working setup however a little 'marketing sauce' wouldn't hurt: instead of "yeah, you could use this and this", just be proud and say: "this is quite awesome, you should really try this out!"

Uncon: Drupal architecture concepts + practices
I liked to learn more about how Drupal is embracing new technologies like Symfony, DI etc. in v8 but also ways to use them in v7 .Most of all I enjoyed learning the issues he community is faced with in this whole process and how it's not that easy to "just dump everything on github". Special thanks to 'Jam' for helping to explain this.

Uncon: Electrify your code with PHP generators
Mark is one of the few people that are able to explain the more advanced/obscure parts of PHP. However he managed to do this in humoristic way which, of course, involved cats ;-)

Uncon: Tech debt: why it's crippling you and what to do
Tobias came up with some very recognizable issues. I saw various people that have to deal with legacy code giggling ;-) But also he managed to point out how dangerous and costly technical debt can become. I think it's very important to create this kind of awareness

Uncon: Meteor,js
I thought I'd knew a lot of JS frameworks but this one I didn't know yet so I was happy to be introduced to it, you can never know too much! Also thanks for being the first speaker of the day :-)

Uncon: PhpStorm like a pro
Rick understood the time constraints of the short uncon slots very well and managed to share a lot of info and shortcuts in a very short time. Also he was open for complementing tips from the audience so I guess everyone learned from it

Uncon: I want to be a hacker... introduction to pentesting
Jakub managed too share a lot of important security/vulnerability related information in a short time while keeping a nice flow and a pleasant way of speaking. Awareness on the many risks in web apps out there and how to solve them is really important. Only later I discovered Jakub isn't a professional speaker (yet), when I found out we've decided to let him win this years uncon contest: a slot at next years DPC!

Uncon: Functional Reactive Programming
While it's probably hard to understand this kind of material right away it's nice to see a completely different way in which languages can be used. Bonuspoint for rendering the presentation with the demo application.

Uncon: How cyborg puppies can sniff out code smell
A little unprepared but hey: "it's uncon!" but very funny, enjoyed it a lot and I really the memory of the "cyberpuppy" will help the audience to avoid writing crappy code and instead apply the SOLID principles.

Uncon: A Talk About Naming Things Talk
As a member of the 'naming and consistency' police and also as someone who is constantly in doubt about naming issues I appreciated the message of this talk. Furthermore it had a lot of 'scope creep' but this made things funnier, which is good sometimes. Also thanks for the DomCode mention

Uncon: Prototypes and ad hoc objects
Sometimes it was a little hard to understand what was going on since the concepts were quite experimental but nevertheless very interesting to see in how many ways problems can be solved in PHP.

Uncon: A day in the life of... a speaker. The fake jetset life
Although Joshua was already a little exhausted by the whole conference he was so kind to do the closing uncon talk which matched very well to the opening uncon talk ("Developers are just like humans"). A nice softtalk in which Joshua explained what the life of a speaker actually looks like and which (dis)advantages it has. Also he had various tips for people who are new to speaking. Thanks for doing this!

Behind the Scenes of Maintaining an Open Source Project
Thanks for making us aware again that we should not treat all the things we currently have in the open source world like a commodity and complain if things sometimes don't work out as expected. Reminds me that I have thought many many times: "Composer has absolutely revolutionized the way build applications", but never actually said this to you on Twitter etc, so: a late thanks for this! The underlying "be kind" message in your talk is means a lot to me, I can react angry at people at times (just in general) where it's just not worth it. So also thanks for reminding me I should always try and react less angry than the person who approaches you. Furthermore your keynote was also a lot of fun.

Hacking Foresight from Hindsight
The nitty details thing (with which I agree) aside, this was a real nice 'feel good' opening keynote. The most important message: "You don't have to be the smartest person in the world, but make sure get to know the people who are" was a good one.

Futures, Options and Eithers United: Context Powerups in Scala
It was great fun to see the advanced things you can do with Scala!, even though I'm still too much of a novice to understand all of it. Something that might help for beginners to grasp what's going is to use more meaningful names than A and B. For example mapping a Blog Article to an Author.

Docker Festival
@Peter and Peter ;) Thanks for the comments! Regarding the noise, yes that should be improved. To be honest we did expect the group of people that wanted to have an introduction to be smaller otherwise we would have arranged a separate room for that.
