A World Without PHP
This was an interesting talk about the history of PHP and where it ranked at different times compared to other platforms, but it was not what I was expecting. I expected an analysis of likely alternatives that popular sites would have been written in had PHP not been around.

Continously delivering
Good talk about stepping from CI to CD, although I think too much emphasis was put on feature toggles, and not enough on practical examples of adding the final step

Passwords and how to handle them
Really good talk about the common pitfalls, and how they're easily avoidable.

Let’s FIGure it out
Really insightful talk about how the FIG works internally and is able to overcome and resolve their differences.

Content Security Policies
Wow! I had only seen CSP in passing and this talk taught me a lot and gave me some things to try out myself. I'd like to see this as a main-track talk next year. I think this is the best talk I saw all weekend.

Middleware to the rescue: A PHPMiNDS story
I didn't really get into this talk. Perhaps I just missed the purpose or was the wrong audience, but I didn't really gain anything. The presentation was delivered well.

PHP Storm’s refactoring features
As others have commented, in the future slowing down with what you're doing on context menus would be useful. There were (I think) 5 refactoring tools shown, and I learnt from one of them. This could potentially be a full talk as there could easily be another 5 (at least).

DEPTRAC: Keep your architecture clean
Interesting talk about a new tool that I'll have to check out. Could have done with more information at the start about how to configure it and then how must to resolve any issues. With regards to the optional dependencies, could you do something like PHPMD's @SuppressWarnings?

It's all about the jumps
Really good talk about the internals of PHP and how your source code gets converted to bytecode. It was mentioned that things like opcache could optimise some of the resulting bytecode, but what I would like to know in a future talk is as a PHP developer, is how can I take this new knowledge and use it to make my code more efficient. I think this final step was missing.

Extracting wisdom from stupidity
Good talk. I was expecting it to be about getting requirements from customers, not problem solving, but was still an interesting and engaging talk.

Level Up Your Team
Good talk with lots of interesting ideas. Could have done with more time in the talk about selling this both to your manager and to other team members. This was partly covered in the questions but should have been in the main talk.

Websockets and Torrents: A match made in PHP
A good talk following a problem through from start to end. As others have mentioned, it was a little quick in places and the screen contrast was low.

Using Open Source for Fun and Profit
Brilliant, well done! Going to hunt down some open source projects now.
