Beyond Hello World: From Scripting to Software
Enjoyed this; for me was a solid mix of review and some new things to try. However, I thought the jump to classes was too abrupt and wanted an intermediate step to learn to think of scripts as software before talking about improving how that software is developed.

Failing Fast
Needed some more solid anecdotes, including maybe some tough moments in the transition to this way of working. This also would have helped it fill out the timeslot. The speaker was easy to listen to and prepared good slides, and my guess is that version 2 of this talk could be very good.

Linux SysAdmin 101
Really enjoyed it! Covered everything I was hoping to. Good way to practice things I already knew about but don't get to do very often and I also learned several new things.

Getting More Out Of Git
Just great. Thanks so much for doing this - it's really valuable. Actually doing the work in-session helped me learn a lot and get comfortable with things I "knew." I think you could shorten the "what is git" stuff at the beginning a bit, given the requirements. I recommend just choosing an order for the second half and not letting the audience choose. Teaching us how to deal with the detached HEAD problem that came up would have been a great teaching moment too since that happens to all of us. Maybe work a deliberate one into the next time? Again, thanks!

Pulling up Your Legacy App by Its Bootstraps!
Enjoyed this. Really appreciated that she detailed her team's specific experience. Funny/sad recounting of the political/organizational aspects of the project, especially at the end, was very relatable. :) I think the only thing I was missing was how the potential solutions were talked through. Why DDD, dependency injection, etc., other than that they are popular 'best practices' would have been interesting.

RegEx Is Your Friend
I consider myself an intermediate regex user and this was an ideal mix of familiar and new for me. I think regex101.com should be mentioned at the start as the place to follow along and try examples during the talk.

Laravel: Building APIs Like a Pro
Speaker knowledge was good. As a follow-along workshop it got a little out of control; people were lost and the rapport between the speaker and the audience wasn’t strong enough to fix that. I recommend getting someone to go around and troubleshoot for people, and building longer pauses into the presentation so you can leave information on screen for people. In a couple places early on, the pause should have been at least 10 minutes. It’s not too long! Was also more basic than I was expecting, but the speaker’s knowledge was above that level. My fault for not carefully reading the description!

Communication Boot Camp for Developers
Next level communication skills (which makes sense.) I learned as much from the practices as from the presentation, and got to know a stranger. Thank you!

More Secure API Requests with WordPress Helper Functions
Good presentation. Too much introductory lead-in to the topic at the start, but the key slides (client -> server -> API, and the list of WP methods) were worth attendance alone. I thought you handled the time constraint well, too.

Localizing Websites
Helpful presentation. I would suggest beginning with the assumption that the audience understands the need and the audience for localization. The behind-the-scenes looks into the translator’s workflow were most unfamiliar to me, so thank you for including those.
