Behind the Scenes of Maintaining an Open Source Project
Great use of historical tweets! Very inspiring to anyone who has tried to help out open-source but has felt disheartened from the whole process. It was a brilliant end to the whole conference!

Artificial Neural Networks on a Tic Tac Toe console application
I wish you had gone into more detail about ANN, and perhaps a little less about Symfony (but thanks for the link to the BoardHelper library!); for a technical talk there wasn't enough on network weights, how they are calculated, backwards propagation, etc. However, it was presented well and it certainly captured my interest - because of this talk I will definitely be researching this topic a lot more with a hope of implementing it in a pet-project somewhere!

The Stateful ElePHPant
Brilliant talk. I personally would have liked a little more on implementing a library such as Yohang's or Winzou's, but the explanation of how one is constructed was more than enough really. Have to admit that I was a little intimidated at first with all the Javascript ;)

Asynchronous PHP
Absolutely brilliant talk that Chris spoke passionately about the entire way through, which was evident by the way he engaged with the audience. Although I will be sticking with React I really did enjoy seeing the amount of abuse that can be taken by generators, especially with the live speed-coding - keep doing that at all your talks!

Implement Single Sign On easily with Symfony
This was one of the best talks at the conference in my opinion. Taking such a large and complicated subject, Sarah guided you through the entire process that more like a storytelling competition that a technical manual - there are concepts that I struggled with using just the Symfony documentation, but felt embarrassed with how simple she managed to make them sound. I think her position as head of SensioLabs University is definitely well-founded.

Breaking Boundaries with FastCGI
Excellent talk improved with implications of murder. Great slides with a great stage presence, not really much to be improved at all. Looking forward to seeing how the project progresses.

Move Fast, Break Less: From DevOps to NoOps with Platform.sh
Shame about the timing between the two tracks, would loved to have heard more from this talk. Despite being a "marketing" talk he was obviously passionate and knowledgeable. Would have been brilliant if he had more time to do his demos and talk more about LXC containers. Great stage presence :)

Extremely Defensive PHP Programming
I realised I had already seen this talk, yet it's still relevant, useful and absolutely brilliant. Hurray!

A year of continuous delivery
Was more of a "this is how we decided to do things at our place" rather than any educational material.

The Road to Technical Team Lead
Excellent talk for anyone who wants to progress their own career or help improve the development team they already manage.
