The OOP in PHP
I understand the need to gauge the audience. We are very smart. Suggestion of using instanceof for class comparison slide.

Modern and Secure PHP
Very good talk. Maybe covered too many topics... but very useful information. I like talks that cover everything and gives you the opportunity to look up further information later.

HTML5 Offline Mobile Apps: Real World Insights
Pretty good information but as stated the information is in flux. Not really related to PHP either but I don't mind as a full stack developer.

From SQL to noSQL
I thought this was pretty informative. My only complaint was the large overhead of getting setup to do the tutorial steps without having come from a MongoDB environment.

Practical Performance Tips and Tricks to Make Your HTML/JavaScript Faster
Excellent excellent. You could tell there were a lot more tips you wanted to share. Especially helpful to identify the performance metrics you want to test.

Irresistible APIs
Looking through the comments I agree. A couple of concrete examples would have been nice.

Graph Databases Will Change Your Freakin Life
I may not ever get the chance to use a graph database but I am totally hooked for side projects. Great talk. Also, on a personal note, can't underestimate the important work of OSMI.

A World Without PHP
It might sound homer-ish, but I don't want to hear about how my love language (PHP) is dying :( :(

Time Management For Grumpy Programmers
I will now go to any talk that Chris gives. Excellent small concepts that you can grasp right away and take home and try. 1 hour blocks, discipline, learning what your own work hour is are all great things to work on.

Pulling up Your Legacy App by its Bootstraps!
This talk was the opposite of what most people fall into. It was way too technical. Perhaps give more generalized concepts and relate them to your experience. Or at minimum, reference in the title or abstract which technologies or libraries you used to solve the problem so people will know what to expect.

Using Open Source for Fun and Profit
Excellent excellent talk. I love the practical tips to contributing to open source. I especially love all the humor brought into the talk. It makes it really engaging. And who doesn't love making more money by contributing to open source.

Websockets and Event-driven Programming with ReactPHP
I really liked the simpleness with which the talk was presented. I thought the explanation were a little verbose when we were focused on using ReactPHP, otherwise very good.

Securing Legacy Applications
Packed with a ridiculous amount of information to follow up on. It's unfortunate the audience was smaller while everyone was napping after cupcakes. I think some specific code examples might help people too.

Unit Testing by Example
This talk was very well done. The ending was short but it was the end of the conference so no fault there. Everyone was a little tired, otherwise some good information, particularly when it comes to deciding what to test.

Protect your API with OAuth2
Fantastic presentation with great detail and great examples. Content was fantastic! My only recommendation would be to speak a little louder, sometimes your voice went a little under your breath.

Xdebug
Who can forget the worst fire alarm in the world and you rolled right with it. You can't get much better than going to a talk by the developer responsible for creating the content.

How to Go from Developer to Stakeholder
If I could rank talks I've ever seen, this would be at the top. Everything she said resonated with me including career arc projection (including running!), from developer to stakeholder. I would actually highly recommend writing a book or something, I'm sure people would read it. I wish I could be as forceful in taking control of my own career.

How PHP Ticks
Nothing wrong with a little cocktail when discussing opcodes. Really neat to see how the internals tick.

SlimPHP - When you don't need the kitchen sink
I have loved your DevOps talks and you can tell that one is really refined. I appreciate you telling us this was your first time doing this talk. I think your speaking style and everything was perfect. The content in my opinion was a little overwhelming. I thought there was more focus on what types of modules you can import (which is great) instead of what Slim is actually doing. Maybe focus more on the request and response aspect of it and how you can incorporate middleware, what routes are, and how to use routes effectively (like wildcards, patterns, etc...) I'll admit I got lost in the weeds a little bit but otherwise it's a great topic and with it being so open to incorporating different components it makes hard to focus. Finishing on a positive note, that is a feature of Slim that I like, that it is so extensible and everyone's use cases are so wildly different for it. Great job at condensing as much knowledge into a 50-60 minute talk as you could.
