Microservices vs The Distributed Monolith
I really liked this talk. Not only did Christopher cover the whys, the hows, and the what if's but he also focused on the negatives and what to watch out for. A lot of talks on microservices skip this crucial part out. Clearly he is very experienced with this topic.

Managing dependencies is more than running composer update
A great talk by Nils. There was a connection issue with the projector but it didn't hinder the quality of the talk.

Solving Cross-Cutting Concerns in PHP
Very interesting and thought provoking talk. The animations and screen recording was a nice touch. I also liked that he repeated the question when it was asked.

Time is an illusion (lunchtime doubly so)
This is can be quite an overlooked subject. Lots of developers just do "what ever is easiest" without thinking of the consequences when they need to compare historical dates. The approach was quite comical. Great content and good delivery.

Debugging ElePHPants
Great introduction in to debugging. There wasn't much that I didn't know but It certainlly reinforced a few things. It would of been interesting to see conditional breakpoints and a demonstration of changing values. As a side note; I am ashamed to say that I have never used PHPStorm. I am a Netbeans and Sublime Text junkie but after seeing this I might give it shot.

Kicking off with Zend Expressive and Doctrine ORM
Interesting talk. I think the MVC vs Middleware topic warrants its own talk or could of been expanded upon. I appreciate that in doing so, the rest of the content would be out of balance. It was well structured talk and the James is a very clear speaker.

Your butler just received an upgrade
A top notch live demonstration! As a Jenkins user I appreciated seeing the new features in 2.0 in all their glory. My build pipeline will not be the same after this talk.

Does Your Code Measure Up?
A great talk which covered many good points. Lots that I knew already but I that didn't bother me. A follow up talk could be to demonstrate these tools within a build pipeline. Jenkins has some nifty plugins for showing the html reports across different builds.

PHP and IoT: Creating a Deployment Device
This was more of a workshop than a talk. The content was good and funny in places but the execution would of been improved if the speakers demonstrated the code themselves. Many of the attendees were trying the installation process and that increased the network traffic. This ultimately caused the talk to become quite erratic as we were waiting for some attendees machines to be configured and up to date. Also some of the code was quite small and hard to read from the back. Dark green command prompts on black is not ideal. These speakers were very approachable at the end.

Ten practical ways to improve front-end performance
Really good talk and I've learnt a lot. The only reason for the 4 stars is that I was eager to see more explanations of some of the the topics. Perhaps 10 is too much for this talk due to time restrictions.

Don't work for PHPCS, make PHPCS work for you
Great talk. I learnt a lot of things thatI didn't realize PHPCS could do. Thank you for adding that explain option. That is going to save me a load of time in the future!

I wish this was longer but I'm not going to mark it down as the content was great. I've just started using PHPStorm so this was very helpful.

Deployment within a Traditional IT Environment
Its very easy to just think of deployment as what we do in this 'New Age' of 'Cloud Computing'. This talk was a great reminder that many legacy systems and legacy work flows are still being used.

Don't Forget To Unit Test Your CSS!
very interesting tool. unfortunately with design we cannot remove the human interaction. im glad you made the point about the false positives. it would be interesting to see what other companies do and/or how the BBC implement this in their deployment pipeline
