Social Event: Drinks & Dinner at Revolution Deansgate (Friday)
Having the Wii with Mario Kart there was excellent. Being kicked out of the downstairs room and then out of two upstairs rooms was less fun. Music was too loud. But it was great to meet all the people

Social Event: Dinner & Drinks at Revolution Deansgate (Saturday)
The food was too spicy (but that was fixed on the night). The music was a bit too loud. Free drinks very appreciated ;) Having two Wii's there was even better than one. I played some nice races, was quite fun. All around good time.

Het frontend is je beste vriend
By far my favorite presentation. The content was fantastic (a bit obvious at times, but sometimes the obvious needs to be said) and the way it was presented was also wonderful.

Zend Framework and the CLI
I think Cal Evans can even make Zend Framework an interesting topic... oh wait, this was on ZF! ;) And it was interesting for sure. Interesting to see the way ZF can handle the CLI now, and great to see the ways Cal uses it.

Building a platform from open source at Yahoo!
Since I am already quite familiar with symfony and it's ways, the part about why Y! adopted symfony was less interesting. I was amazed by the amount of free data API's that are there, and will dig into those soon. Overall, the information was very well-presented. This timeslot was the hardest choice for me, and I am very happy with my choice to see Dustin speak.

ABC 5, CMS in ZF en Flex
Hoewel niet aangekondigd als een verkooppraatje was het toch wel veel show-off. Aan de andere kant was gaf het wel goed weer wat je allemaal kan doen met PHP en Flex. Er had iets meer technische achtergrond in gemogen, maar ik heb begrepen dat de afwezigheid van Ivar Vermeulen daar de oorzaak van zou kunnen zijn.

Regex-Fu
Geen slides maar effectief gebruik van de flipover. Misschien wel een betere manierom dingen bij te brengen omdat er beter opgelet moet worden op de combinatie van gesproken en geschreven woord. Regex blijft magie, maar bedankt voor de korte uitleg van wat principes.

Passing the Joel Test in the PHP World

I am impressed by the quality of this talk, especially considering Martin only had 30 minutes to prepare it! All the important information surrounding Continuous Integration came by and was presented in a clear way. Martin: work on this talk a bit more and start submitting it to conferences... people will want to see this one. Conference organizers take note: This is one you will want to consider for your conference!

Of knowledge sharing and the developer quality lifecycle
The content of the talk itself was nothing new for me (then again, this was a beginner-level talk in the first place), however I really liked the way Jordi pulled the attendees into a discussion on his topics, which gave some very good responses about the experience of the people there. This was an excellent way of not just offering a single opinion or way of thought, but getting the thought of everyone there.

Unit-testing a guide to writing clean, testable code that will be easy to maintain and extend

Introducing Assetic: Asset Management for PHP 5.3
Interesting stuff. Looks like this will be quite useful :) One note though: If you don't have a portable mic, then don't walk around. When you were walking with your back to one side of the room, that side of the room had a hard time hearing you (well, I did at least). I think there were portable mics, better have used one

Implementing WebDAV in your PHP application
Interesting overview of the webDAV technology. I haven't yet used the technology so it was completely new for me, but it did give me some inspiration of situations in which this could definitely be applied. Evert is also a very good natural speaker, making it pleasant to listen to him. And of course, Evert added some live entertainment with his phone beeping at every Twitter mention ;)

ZCE 5.3 Exam Preparation
I already have the 5.0 certificate, so I was mainly interesting to see the new PHP 5.3 stuff, however the "old" stuff was actually quite refreshing for me. One of the most important things I (re-)learned was how I should read, then read again, and read a third time, just to make sure that I've read things correctly. Sorry for having to leave early, but this session definitely has helped me in making sure I'm ready for the exam.

Energine PHP + XML + XSLT = <3
well done! I liked the interaction with the attendees, that usually helps to keep their attention. Also quite impressive to have live demo's done, and they worked quite well to give a clear image of what you were talking about. Perhaps next time, having a CMS running with English text might be a bit clearer. I realize you can show the functionality with the Russian text in there, but for an audience that doesn't understand Russian, having an English site as a demo might just be a bit more clear. Also, rebooting to another OS in the middle of the talk might not be good idea. I realize though that you didnt have much time to prepare :)

PHP for grown-ups
I've given you some feedback in person already but I'll repeat it here: Having seen this talk before (when it ran a little long) I know that you can tell the story right. All the good poiints are in there, but I'm missing a central line this time. There were a lot of pieces of wisdom in this talk, but there was nothing to connect all of it together. As I mentioned last night: perhaps try writing a blogpost of the information and take the structure of that into your talk. That is a method that has helped me structure my talks a lot. That is actually a lot of text for the "negative" part, and that is not my purpose. The information you were giving is still good information, and while you were clearly nervous I think you did offer a lot of wisdom. You know what you are talking about, that is clear.

As I told you last night, I think you took a really good approach to talking about this subject in front of people that are generally not WordPress-lovers.

It sometimes felt like you were doing several small talks right after eachother.

You Attended Talk: an introduction to event sourcing
The subject was really interesting, but it was really hard to concentrate on the talk and the slides. Some slides (especially with code) were handled pretty quickly while I could've used a bit more time to process what was in there. It didn't help that the room sound system was pretty much non-existant so it was hard to hear the speaker, plus it was really warm in the room, but that meant losing concentration too much and losing the story at some point about halfway.

phpBB, Meet Symfony
I'm tempted to just give a 4-thumbs rating and not giving any constructive feedback ;) But seriously: I love case studies of projects (open source or corporate) migrating to frameworks to see what challenges they run into, and given my previous involvement with phpBB, this was especially interesting. Michael did a good job explaining the challenges and showing examples. My main constructive criticism would be that at some moments the pace was too high, making it a bit harder to follow. I've suffered from this a lot in my talks as well, and it's really hard to prevent, but try and speak more slowly (have a look at how Lorna Mitchell is doing that. She is awesome at this).

I came in with very high expectations, this talk was one of the reasons why I wanted to come to DomCode this year. Although it was a good talk, I was slightly disappointed. A lot of the information given was pretty standard PiratenPartij information. I had hoped to have seen a bit more depth to it, with more data to back up all the claims. Don't get me wrong, I liked the talk and it definitely strengthened my decision to vote PiratenPartij, but I had just expected more of it. One additional comment: It felt like you were really nervous. There was no need for that. This is your crowd. We're the tech-savvy that understand the message you want to get across :)

Fluid Application Architecture
There was a lot of good information in this talk and the delivery was really good. I've already relayed some feedback in person about how I think it can be slightly improved, but just to make sure it doesn't get lost: - Intro was very good. First ten minutes were a good intro - Delivery was excellent. The balance between serious information and jokes is good, keeps people awake while still delivering the important information - I feel it needs some more memorable punchlines. I mentioned tweetable quotes yesterday, but thinking a bit more about that, it doesn't even have to be that. But the information needs to be able to stick in people's minds for a bit longer, trigger thoughts. I'm not sure how to better do that, but I have the feeling that the information doesn't necessarily sticks yet. One example I mentioned yesterday in the conversation: You try to tell people not to get attached to their code, so why not write some code in your examples and then throw it away and create a new example? Overall though, this is a very promising first time you do this talk. I'm pretty sure this can evolve into an excellent 5/5.
