Chasing "Perfect"
Excellent talk and demo! I've been trying to improve my code in the same type of way, finding ways to eliminate nested conditionals but to see it demonstrated so clearly was awesome. Really got me eager to get back to my code and improve it. Also the first code-heavy talk that I could follow easily from start to finish. My favorite talk of the day.

Future Is A Thing Of The Past
Very nice talk on Event Sourcing. The speaker was engaging but seemed a bit nervous which resulted in him talking very fast and his jokes falling flat because people needed a bit of time to catch up. With a bit more practice on relaxing the talking style this will be an excellent talk.

TDD Is Dead, Long Live TDD
Agree with Povilas, some good points and info in the first half, although the speaker doesn't have the most engaging speaking style, but the demo was very tough to follow in the back, I could have done with more info about why and how to use TDD instead.

Bringing User Stories To Life
Good insights on how to make user stories work better. Unfortunate that it seems that bit strips, which the talker used so effectively to illustrate her user stories, is no more.

Keynote
I know this is a Laravel conference but as someone who doesn't use Laravel primarily, I was disappointed with this talk as the keynote, I would have expected something more along the inspirational lines. As a 2015 attendee where I know there were a lot of complaints about the talks not being technical/laravel oriented enough, I feel that this was a big overreaction to that feedback. It also felt a bit like leftovers, considering how often the speaker mentioned he was just telling us things he didn't have time to talk about at Laracon US. I think this talk would have had a much better place along the two tracks. I was missing the inspiring message that is usually conveyed in a keynote.

Curing The Common Loop (With Collection Pipelines)
Excellent, just like last year. Dealing with simple every day coding structures and improving them immensely. It's like magic seeing Adam doing these refactors but it's explained so well you can replicate it right away. Once again all our code will be better for it. Thanks Adam!

Please Understand Me
Great talk! Good insights into how to deal with your job and those around you, and live in general. I agree I would have expected a bit more from the perspective of transitioning to manager, but overall a talk well worth attending.

Modern Frontend UI with Vue.JS
Very good talk, made me, as a Vue novice, really think about how this could be useful in our projects. Will definitely look into using Vue.

Conversations with a Screenreader: Web Accessibility For Artisans
Very good subject, good to get people thinking about accessibility being for everyone and not just a few people. Well presented, the only comment I have is that it was a bit repetitive at times. Just a tip, in my opinion, a 40 minute talk doesn't warrant recaps.

Making the Most Out of MySQL
Very well structured talk and great insights. I agree for me it was a bit hard to follow at times because of the accent, an Italian colleague had less trouble.

The State Of Content Management
I was expecting much more, there was pretty much nothing in the talk that I didn't already know which caused my attention to wane, and in the middle he lost me completely. The stakeholders perspectives could have been interesting but again, nothing new there. Since I am working on a customized CMS project I would have really liked some good ideas.
