Growing up with PHP
I really liked the talk, and the subject. It was nice to see you overcoming your stage fright, and even then you managed not only to not shut down on stage, but open up and talk about yourself too. Just one point to improve on, as Michelangelo had mentioned already, try to keep a clear voice, and at some points you began to talk real softly. It did have a plus to it however, the whole room was almost completely silent.

Practical privacy - GDPR explained
Found the talk interesting in what the impact could be on any service. Would have loved some more examples how to deal with the regulations, but overall the speaker had a nice flow in the talk itself.

I deploy on Fridays (and maybe you should too)
Big message for just 45 minutes of time, but the skills of the presenter plus the content of the talk itself pushed the message home.

Long running PHP Processes
The talk itself had potential, would have loved to see more examples of configuring the long running processes in upstart / systemd. On the speaker itself, I agree with some of the earlier comments, the monotone way of talking did not help to bring your message home. Adding a bit more humor and variation of timbre would have helped giving more impact on the talk itself.

GraphQL is right in front of us, let's do it, with Symfony
Good start on how GraphQL could be used, the whole versioning part looked a bit odd to me, but maybe that's just personal. As a tip for the speaker, please give it somewhat better structure.

Docker from Development to Production: Streamlining the CI/CD process for the new BALR. e-commerce application
The speaker itself was obviously nervous, unfortunately that brought the level of the talk down from the start. Plus the whole self-promotion of BALR did not help it either. I felt that the 10 minutes used to promote BALR would have been better used to go a bit more into the details of why or how you are using the tools. Tom (the guy answering the questions during the Q and A), was a lot calmer and answered the questions on a constructive and helpful way.

Continuously delivering containerized, highly available microservices with proper context boundaries and messaging integration
Maybe not as technical as I would have liked it, but I think that is what Matthias intended to do from the beginning. Having said that, it did give me pointers to think about to create logical boundaries in the services we would like to create. And above all, not to create services that are to small. The messages part seemed obvious to me, but I think that part can easily be forgotten by others.

Paradoxes and theorems every developer should know
Given like a pro. This was actually one of the favourite non-technical talks of the conference. The speaker was able to captivate the audience and was able to bring across topics that are actually quite hard to grasp. Some of the topics covered are a bit more far-fetched in real live then others. On a side note, somebody mentioned that the walking around of the speaker was distracting, I liked it, it showed that he was at ease with the subject and more important it brought a bit of a change compared to other speakers I saw that where just standing behind the speaker desk and not moving at all. On the organiser part, maybe, just maybe you could have scheduled the talk in a bigger room :)

Empathy As A Service: Supporting Mental Health in the Tech Workplace
Thank you Nara to bring this subject into the clear at a conference. It is quite a difficult topic to address, and that did show a bit, for the speaker it showed you are knowledgeable on the subject, but please don't look that much on the laptop, it took away the dynamics of a talk that in my opinion is a subject overlooked at by most companies, until they've to deal with it. Having said that, I love the way that you are honouring Ni Mu, and hope that by doing these talks your personal loss can help others to prevent people thinking about suicide.

Tales from the wrong end
This was the second talk I attended from Marcus, and it did not disappoint. The story itself was entertaining, the speaker gave a personal insight how the discovery of a security issue itself triggered a whole lot of work and investigation how to solve it. Hopefully I won't encounter myself in a similar situation :)

Golang for PHP developers: A practical introduction
As mentioned before I believe the talk has potential, but would have loved to see a bit more on the why perspective. Why is Go in some cases better than PHP. On the speaker, yes he seemed to be out of his comfort zone, that is not at all bad, but unfortunately it brought the level of the talk a bit down. I think if the speaker had been a bit more at ease the level of the talk would have been a lot better.

Uncon: A practical introduction to snapshot testing
Short talk, but nevertheless entertaining, not sure where I would be using this in the system we have right now, but I can see where snapshot testing might be useful.

Uncon talk: Deadline pressure
Fun to watch, got to see what you where coming from. Not technical at all, but it was nice to see how you handled deadline pressure.
