CMS, Framework, or DIY: How do you choose?
The presentation surface a very good discussion about the benefits and costs of each approach. I loved hearing that frameworks are "opinionated"

Docker for PHP Developers
Good workshop, covered Docker in a well paced process. Covered some of the confusing points I had when getting started. Should have had a podium.

Pulling up Your Legacy App by Its Bootstraps!
Good case study of how to pay attention to user needs, identify pain points, and address them in a legacy application. I really liked hearing the actual impact Emily's team had on the process.

Building Unique Templates with Custom Post Types in WordPress
Good oversight of how to use Custom Post types intelligently in a WordPress site (which is something I'm starting to dig into myself). The only thing missing from a developer point of view is how you manage, version, and deploy the definitions for a CPT.

Thank You PHP Community, I Owe You so Much
Very inspiring talk and I learned so much about how the community impacted Michelangelo's career. However, at times I wasn't sure why he was sharing some tidbit. I think it'd be more powerful if there were lessons learned or calls to action along the way instead of all at the end.

Building for the PHP Command Line Interface
Excellent overview for writing command line scripts useful for different contexts. I would have preferred seeing the code example earlier but that may just be a personal preference.

Refactoring Legacy Code
A little too much time up front talking more about tooling. I would have preferred seeing more code examples and showing how to add an autoloader.

Accessibility for Everyone
Great job making the case for accessibility and how many people are affected. I never know what tools are available and this presentation covers them well. I would have liked more screenshots of some of the tools you mentioned or even a direct roadmap for getting started. That is, use tool X to start with, then use Y to address these other things, etc...

This talk covered a lot of games and toys to help kids learn to code. I can definitely see getting one of these for my kids.

Developing SOLID applications with PHP
good walk through of all the principles. I think a real-world example or highlighting PHP packages who demonstrate one of the principles would better reinforce the concepts.

Where's The BeEF?
Hands on demo was interesting but too unstructured and unfocused.

How We Got Here, A Brief History of Open Source
Great look at the history of open source. I would have liked more discussion of the PHP community and how it uses open source but overall there was a lot of valuable history to cover.
