Professional Development, Professional Developers
All good advice, and I got a few good ideas about how to get more involved and be a better member of the community.

Building for the PHP Command Line Interface
Really good talk that had a lot of solid points and suggestions. Steve is a charismatic speaker, and the content of both his speeches was on point.

CouchDB: Scalable NoSQL for Modern Applications
Really good talk. The speaker did a great job explaining and demoing CouchDB. Definitely sold me on giving it a try.

Confessions Of a Not-So-Accidental Leader
It's always interesting to learn from a voice of wisdom that comes from age and experience.

Performance optimisation: how do I go about it?
There were a lot of good examples and suggestions. It was also helpful to be pointed at a few github projects to get started.

Securing Legacy Applications
This talk felt aimed at legacy code that didn't have a lot of security in place. Everything the speaker said was good advice. Maybe next time there could be some in-depth examples of how to find and fix potential exploits. Walking through the process of identifying a csrf vulnerability and the process of implementing a patch would be helpful. Trouble is, you need an example of legacy code, and that will look different for everyone. Very much enjoyed the talk.

Xdebug will forever change the way you debug your PHP code
I really liked the variety of ways covered on ways to use XDebug, and the specific examples and screenshots were nice, too. Using the integration with PHPStorm was a good call since so many people use it.

Dealing With Development Overload
There is so much to learn and there's always more on the horizon. Taking care of yourself in a very demanding environment is important, and this talk hit home quite a few times.

Get started with Vue.js
I thought the talk was really well done. As someone who has been poking around Vue for a little bit, this talk increased the scope of what I knew, without getting too deep into it. It was nice because now I have new avenues to explore at my own pace. Had we dug into code and done a follow-along, I wouldn't have gotten as much benefit. My only suggestion would be to more clearly communicate the target audience.

Promises and Queues: Using Unlikely Suspects to Handle Asynchronous Parallel Processing
This was by far my favorite talk at the event. The narrative nature of it made for a very entertaining experience while doing a great job of explaining the difficulties of working at a startup with very unique technical needs and a strange initial infrastructure. I always enjoy hearing how people solve unique technical problems because it helps inspire others to be more creative when solving complex problems.
