Status Change: Now Using Event Sourcing
I found this presentation very interesting and useful. I think there was high value in presenting practical experience in such a tricky design situation. I would have benefitted from seeing the slides of code for a bit longer. Hence also attended the hands-on. Is there any chance the slides could be made available here? many thanks,

Ten practical ways to improve front-end performance
A practical and helpful "refresher". Could have had a bit more on HTTP2 ?

From Hamfist to Hamcrest: more expressive tests in PHP
Really like the readability of the codes produced using Hamcrest and hope I have time to get into this.

Very clear and informative.

Driving Design through Examples
Nice clear presentation. I would have liked to hear a bit more about things like pitfalls and limitations of using DDD.

Don’t believe everything you learn
Lots of fun. Liked the idea of having datetime expert in front row as heckler.

My Favourite PhpStorm Surprises
Picked up a couple of great tips. Might be interesting to try to get people's favourite features and present something like a top-ten shortcuts or something.

5 Features of a Good API
A well-crafted presentation on something which I guess needs to be well-crafted of itself. The questions afterwards were particularly well handled, I thought. I look forward to reading the RFCs!

Code it like it's 1995
Nice talk to finish the evening on an up beat. Must remember to put an animated gif on the homepage and see what happens to the the wraith tests.

Building a slow PHP app
Great talk - now I can stop messing with the profiler and all that refactoring to take select out of loops.

How to put your Docker image on a diet
Great to learn how some simple changes in the Dockerfile can make such a difference in size/transfer speed and attack surface.

Don't Forget To Unit Test Your CSS!
Potentially a very helpful tool and well presented. More details of practical issues and limitations would be interesting to me (a second session?).

The Symfony Open-source Community
I use Symfony but had not really thought about contributing. I certainly felt encouraged. Some more real-world experience stories would be of interest.

Dungeons, Dragons & Developers
I found it a kind of celebration of people's different approaches to problem solving. Entertaining too. I wonder how it would apply to a larger open-source type community.

Let's get you geared up to tackle legacy code
Very enjoyable it may have been, but there was an incredible amount of value in the talk too - not least making legacy funny and interesting. Using a decent IDE definitely helps us hugely with legacy. The translation layer idea was an interesting idea. Putting a Symfony framework around the legacy app was a turning point for us, though, facilitating many of the other things talked about. Look forward to checking out the blog.

Test to Break Principle
Liked the diverse background bits and use of live coding to illustrate tricky concepts. As someone who already uses and appreciates the value of test, I am not sure this really got to the heart of the problems involved so was left wanting more technical depth.

Introduction to Serverless PHP
We are using Lambda for image resizing and I want to use it more so I had high hopes for this presentation. I was not disappointed by this fast-paced presentation which covered quite a lot of ground. Clear (slides and presentation). Well-paced (for me anyway). Examples at, for me, the right level to grasp in a fast-paced talk and which I will could be referring back to. Particularly beneficial was that it gave an overview of things like the serverless paradigm, the current offerings in the marketplace, the state of open source, use cases. Bringing Lambda/PHP in is very timely. I don't really have a criticism. I suspect there were quite a lot of people who, like me, had a bunch of questions buzzing around in their heads, but did not want to deprive the speaker any longer of a chance to get to the bar.

The Bots Are Taking Over: Developing Conversational Agents With ChatScript and PHP
Very interesting - well constructed and quite entertaining. Have not looked at chatbots before but after this I would not be afraid to have a go. I did find the presentation style a little bit fragmentary and hard to follow at times - whereas when answering questions at the end the speaker was, for me, much more fluid, expressive and interesting. I suspect there is a lot of scope for humour (intentional or unintended, anecdotal etc) from the construction chatbots. The speaker got some of that in there. Many Thanks.
