Frontin' like a Backer
It was quite a nice talk, also quite informative. However, the abstract of the talk did not mention 'React', and for people who already had been to another React introduction talk, this was a bit annoying.

Hacking your way to better security
The content of the talk was too basic. The title implied a some more advanced topics, but spending 20 minutes on SQL injection is more of an entry level. The speaker did have a very clear presentation style.

Extracting wisdom from stupidity
It was a really nice talk. Entertaining and informative. What maybe could be improved is explaining more what you learnt from analyzing your own thought process: what are your personal pitfalls/strengths and at what point did you detect them as such. I do plan to read one of the 'thinking' books you advised to read, so your talk definitely had impact :)

Machine Learning - Support Vector Machines
Some things that could be improved: explain the theory (as it states in the abstract); the current talk was more like "we have an SVM implementation, I put things in it, I get things out of it, I did machine learning". From the talk, it was not clear how SVM's even worked/how you could implement them, which was exactly what I was expecting after reading the abstract. It was clear, however, how you could use them. The speaker seemed to simplify the process too much or did not have a deep understanding of the subject matter himself.

XP in Practise
I really liked the talk, as the both the benefits and the challenges of applying XP were explained. The parts on the theory were interesting, but there were a whole lot of 'things' (i.e. values, principles and practises) that were mentioned. It might be a good idea to focus on a few of those to avoid an overload of information.

Introduction to the Semantic Web
What I found really positive is that the speaker introduced all 'basic' components of the semantic web, accompanied by some easy examples. Some humorous notes made the talk enjoyable to listen to. A small point of improvement could be a real-life example of a situation where using 'Semantic Web'-techniques would be the best thing to do.

Several years of SOLID-aware development
I agree with Youri Thielen's comment. In addition, you somewhere mentioned about using @throws annotations that it does not matter whether you name a specific type or just 'Exception'. In my opinion, this is not a very good idea. If an exception is annotated by its exact type, it can be caught by exactly that type (assuming that the one who writes a corresponding try/catch clause looks at the @throws annotation). In that way, you don't have the risk of catching exception you did not expect (in contrast to the situation when using 'Exception' or 'Throwable' in your catch clause.) To end on a more positive note: somewhere in the talk you mentioned that 'you should not be using the "extends"-keyword too much', and I can only agree to that.

Succeeding as an Introvert
I might not be 'as introverted' as the speaker, but I really recognized some situations she described. My take-away: know your boundaries, respect them and ask others to respect them too.

Pushing the limits of PHP with React PHP - why React PHP is awesome and why you should care
I liked the talk, it was fast-paced and funny and the speaker really knew the subject well. Concerning the demos, I think it is nice that we could see what ReactPHP could do, but I would like to see a little bit more explanation of the code. In the back of the room, the code was not readable very well due to some highlighting issues of the text editor. Also, when scrolling through the code, it was not clearly visible what was happening. There are two things I would have liked to hear but that were missing from the presentation: - what is the drawback of using ReactPHP? - how is ReactPHP working under the hood? And wow, a GUI in PHP? The speaker must have a lot of spare time :P

43 PhpStorm Tips & Tricks
Nice talk, I learned a lot. And I guess I might improve my workflow a lot with these tips & tricks. The talk triggers me to explore the IDE to see where I can improve (and use my mouse less...). Well done!

Making BDD work for you
Excellent talk! The speaker introduced the subject very well and his approach can be implemented in your existing workflow quite easily. Also: very cool slides, they gave the presentation a personal touch.

It's all about the goto
The speaker clearly knows a lot of what he was talking about, which is very nice. The structure of the talk (from lexing to parsing to interpreting) worked very well.

Bruce Lee Driven Development
I liked the talk. The presentation felt a bit 'unstructured' here and there (or it might be because it was the second day of the conference and almost lunch time ;)). The approach of the talk was really cool, with a lot of Bruce Lee in it :)

Review unknown code with static analysis
Fast paced talk, enthousiastic speaker. I like the idea that is behind this presentation, .e.g. how we could infer that the codebase probably had some legacy code just from static analysis.

Golang for PHP developers: A practical introduction
Thanks to this talk, I can now imagine a setting in which I would use Golang (concurrency). I liked how you just skipped the basics that everyone already knew from other languages and jumped to the point where Golang starts to differ from PHP.

Voodoo PHP
Woa, this was a really nice talk. The speaker clearly knows a lot about PHP and PHP hacks, and clearly enjoys to showcase them. Some good advice also at the end ("a little but of magic might be OK, but don't let anyone suffer from it").
