What to keep in mind when writing tests
Really informative talk, certainly broke down some barriers for me in regards to testing. As James noted, the flow / progression aspect was very well done. Most importantly I can't wait to put it into practice myself and with the rest of our team. Also had the pleasure of having a good chat with Vinai later on and not only was he full of great knowledge as you'd expect, but a top bloke too! :)

The deconstructed Magento 2 module
Loved James' talk, it provided clear detail on the right way to code to ensure improved testability, reliability and ease of adding new features / services in future. The mandrill example was perfect and helped make the whole talk easier to connect with. That combined with the humour in regards to recent 'mandrillgeddon' and the 'that class' example made it an all round great talk for me. Biggest takeaway for me was around the honesty in that yes coding this way will take longer to begin with, but the benefits in regards to future time saving (not to mention code readability) make it worth while.

Supercharged Magento 2 Theme Development
Good talk from the guys at CTI, frontend isn't my main focus, but I learnt a lot about how Magento 2 FE works from a high level. Our frontend team members who attended the event have been discussing a lot about this talk since so it obviously had some positive impact and I think we're keen to take some of these learnings on board back at our office. Therefore it is refreshing to see how much of their internal process and learning they were willing to share with the community, so thanks Ian and Suresh.

Panel discussion
Informative session, I think perhaps it may have been better having after everyone had spoken as a way to wrap the day up as more questions may have been forthcoming. Also combining the idea of topics we listed for the unconf section for this may be a good idea too. All in all a good session to have as it's great for the community to be able to ask the speakers about any burning topics they have and kudos to the speakers for agreeing to be involved.

The barcamp / un conference slot
Agree with James, great segment to have and would like to see again in future, but more time for people to prepare would be better. Appreciate this was obviously a bit last minute with the withdrawal of Nathan and was a very good replacement given the time constraints. Also a shoutout to Max for his talk frontend security, some really good stuff in there, and respect to everyone who put themselves forward and gave an impromptu speech.

Untitled
Not really a talk, more a call to action from Ben asking us to tell him about any development gripes with M2. A pretty brave move from Ben and refreshing to see from Magento, even better was that everything was noted down to be fed back to the internal team. Ben is obviously a seasoned speaker and his humour and audience interaction is second to none so this was always going to be a winner. This talk was another reminder of how well the 'new' Magento is better listening to the community and I hope it continues.

How to Make the Most of Magento Events
Essential talk to kick off any event, especially for newcomers. Love the idea of getting everyone to think about what they learnt and how they can apply it using the handy 'fill in the blanks' phrase :)

Messing up Dependency Injection
One of my favourite talks of the day. Very well presented and cleverly delivered. Not only were there some great advanced level tips provided, such as not using helpers, checking $context, composition over inheritance and object manager usage, but clear reasoning for why was given. Showing the 'wrong' way then the 'right' way was also a great touch.

B2B Webshops
Good overview of the key differences between B2C and B2B, but would have liked some more technical examples, plus as Jisse noted some comparison / insight on upcoming Magento 2.2 B2B Edition too.

Headless Magento
Really interesting and impressive talk from Sander on how the site he works with has gone headless with Magento with real world examples of how they built out their components, showing the structure used and the dependencies included.

Integrating a ReactJS frontend in Magento 2
Really well presented, funny and importantly informative talk from Riccardo. Not only did it show how they use React, but the issues they have faced and the open source solutions they have created to solve some of these.

Magento 2 UI Components – The JS part
Great talk from first time speaker Maria, giving a great overview of using javascript on the frontend with Magento's UI component system. The real world example shown with a world map and product list was really great to see. The only thing I'd have liked to seen further was a link to a code repo for the example shown.

Migrating your Magento frontend skills to Magento 2
Refreshingly honest talk from Arjen on they considered frontend options when moving to Magento 2, including headless, but decided to stick with the 'vanilla' LESS blank theme as was the best fit for them. Liked the comparison of M1 and M2 to Joshua and Klitschko too - very apt!

The bright and dark sides of Magento automated testing
Good talk, but a bit hard to follow at times and some slides had a bit too much text on to be readable - some more images / or examples would have helped. The tips provided however were useful and will be reading into further. Thanks!

Magento 2 and AMQP – Scaling and optimising your (EE or CE) store
Great overview from Renato on message queues. As something I've never looked into before it gave a decent overview and the code examples mean I have something to go away and learn more from.

Remote. Relaxed. Related. Working as a Magento freelancer
Really great talk from Carmen on remote working with some great tips. I can tell it was of use seeing how it was received by others who work remotely that attended, I can't comment too much seeing as I work in an centralised office that I walk 15 minutes to each day!

Making Your Life Easier with the Magento 2 CLI
Second time I've seen this talk and as before it is great talk for users new to the Magento 2 CLI, Miguel is always a charismatic and fun speaker. As Jisse noted re the target audience, I'd love to see a follow up that is more advanced.

Monitoring your cache effectiveness in Magento 2
Another great talk from Tony that as always outlines some real world challenges with full page cache (FPC) in Magento 2 and how he and his team at Space 48 overcome them, being gracious enough to provide the solution. I really liked the involvement with the crowd regarding the monitoring examples especially. This is the 3rd time I've seen Tony speak, all at Mage Titans events and the second on FPC and he's never failed to disappoint in both terms of presentation and ensuring you have something to take away and apply.
