What To Expect From PHP7
Very insightful, excellent coverage of new features with good examples of usage. Very enthusiastic speaker, clearly enjoys what she does. Brilliant and shameless plugs about her consultancy work. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Mentoring: Change the World One Hour at a Time
This talk looked like it was going to be advise on how to be a good mentor, providing tips and techniques on what makes a good mentor. This was very different from what this talk was actually about. The talk itself was not that bad although I felt like a couple of minutes on google and I could have found most of the information in the talk such as the tools and platforms.

MySQL 5.7 + JSON
The best non-key note talk of the conference. Very good presentation style, relaxed but confident. Great technical understanding and good coverage of the important topics. Brilliant question answering, kept things light-hearted while informative

Graphs are Everywhere
Great talk, really simple break down of how graphs work without getting too technical. Well delivered, confident with no "um"ing. Lost me a little in the middle when the tree stuff got a little too abstract to see how it related to real world but brought it back at the end.

Living With Legacy
Great points, particularly some interesting thing for new developers or devs with less of a business focus. Often devs are too tech focused to look at the bigger picture. At times it was a little monotone, breaking it up with pictures or anecdotes is a good way to keep the audience engaged.

Content Security Policies: Let's Break Stuff
One of the best talks iv heard in a while. Fantastic, confidence, good jokes, brilliant content. Something I have never heard of but now feel like i can start using it straight away. Really well delivered with very clear slides and explanations.

Static Site Generators, PHP, and The Cuban Revolution
Clearly delivered but felt a bit rushed. Would have liked more time on example ssgs. Some good quips and interesting side info about cgi-bin but would consider not deviating too much from core topic when under short time constraints.

How to not be a cool developer
Good ideas about an old concept with a new spin. Felt a little rushed so aim to slow down speech speed. Packed good code samples with humour and information.

Speedy Seeding for Load Testing
Great talk, well paced with good information and a great demo that was easy to follow. Might even get involved in the package development because of this.

Not using the Git Command Line
Well paced but felt like there was too much obvious information which made it hard to pick out out the important points. Suggest using less cluttered slides with clearer headlines of main points.

Devkit. By the People, For the People.
Well delivered, clear and well paced. Good topic, not something we struggle with but have witnessed similar problems and some good points were raised. The devkit repo felt a little shoe horned in, and not beneficial to the main talk points.
