PHP in 2017
Such a great talk. Really really informative run through what's coming out in 7.2 and beyond, and I LOVED the easy to follow examples of opcode caching optimisations. Enjoyed the history intro too. Thanks for all the graphs and stats on CO2 savings - that gives us all a great argument to go back with to our business owners and badger them about upgrading to 7! :) Very well prepared and structured talk, and delivered without a glitch!

Storing Non-Scalar Data
It was a nice run through all the different technologies to store non-scalar data and a nice refresher about all the different solutions out there. Nothing "revolutionary" for me personally. Kudos to Derick for staying cool and composed despite the mic problems!

Nuclear powered software security
Brilliant and enjoyable talk. Informative, and the advice given was easy to understand and clear examples were given. Loved the analogy to the real world high-risk systems like nuclear power plants and aeroplanes, was awesome to hear more about how those systems are designed and operated and interesting to hear the failure stories too! The occasional jokes were great too (I won't be mindlessly clicking on alerts from now on haha). The talk was well structured and Chris was well prepared. Kudos for staying completely calm despite losing the slides for a while!

Discovering & solving performance issues
A good run through the available tools and good general advice given. I found this talk to be a little too broad and wish it was a bit more in-depth with more real-life, practical examples. It felt a bit rushed and some parts like the digression on SOLID could've been left out to help with the timing and to stay focused on the main subject. Minor thing, but I probably wouldn't add the laughing comment about the senior developer making a mistake - we're all human and we all make mistakes from time to time, even the most experienced of us :)

The GDPR is coming, are you ready?
Great talk from a confident and entertaining speaker! A lot of important points raised and I think it was really helpful to hear about what the GDPR means for a business with lots of real-life examples. Gave some good ideas to think about.

MySQL Worst Practices. Bring your system to it's knees.
Amazing talk! Lots of great advice given in a funny and easy to digest way. The chat with the sad CEO on Skype bit had me laughing out loud, that was brilliant! :D :D :D

For The Love Of Code
Pretty much what everyone else said - great delivery, funny, lighthearted but with some great and important content and messages. Loved the drawings and the handwritten style of the slides. Couldn't have expected a better closing keynote!
