Command and (e)mission Control
Excellent talk, came across well. Only negative(s) is that it was too short (time is against us all), and I would have liked to have seen some working examples (again time constraints). Looking forward to further talks.

HTTP Caching: Improving Performance & Saving the Ice Caps
A other great talk by Phil. Alot has been learnt again (and yes, I'll be getting his book). Phil likes his slides, and they good and relevant but does fire through them quickly, and sometimes jumps ahead and then back again.

Zend Form package in action
Jan knows his stuff over Zend forms. I've used Zend in the past, and found his talk very useful, and it's given me some thought of returning back to tinkering again with Zend. Some feedback for Jan; a little bit more practice in giving the talk, so you know which slides are coming up, so it doesn't catch you out, but this is just down to practice where even seasoned talkers fall foul. Again, great talk.

A Beginners Guide to Laravel from a Laravel Beginner
Excellent talk, and for someone who has only been using Laravel for a small amount of time, has grasped the basics very well. Feedback for Tom; probably a little more explanation on some of the coding, as skipped over a few bits, but this may have been down to time.

Static Site Generators, PHP, and The Cuban Revolution
Awesome talk. A lot of information for a static site generator, and I'm already using alot of what was discussed. Quite comical at times too (a plus) Drew did rush through his slides, but probably due to having his talk limited to 10 minutes, and it can be a nerve wracking experience talking to 70 people.

How to not be a cool developer
Another great talk. Time was against him, but found some great ideas for using SPAs. Great use of the examples, and the video was a useful addition.

Speedy Seeding for Load Testing
Fantastic talk by Martin. Brave doing a live demo, but it worked all okay (phew). Felt a bit rushed, but like the other talks, time is the enemy. Would have been good to go through the bulkinserter code, but that can be done later in my own time when looking through Git.

Using a framework or not
Great talk by Peter. Pros/Cons of a framework has been a challenge with work and I'll be using his slides to help with the challenges I have with PMs. Some real world examples would have been good to show the audience, but as mentioned, the project should determine the framework ;)

Bad Tech Tests
A different style to the normal talks, but well presented. I'd have had some slides to show the stories being told do variety. However, I enjoyed it alot, and will take away some of the lessons learnt (especially for upcoming interviews)

Not using the Git Command Line
Thank you Nigel. Great use of slide layouts, and useful knowledge (I've not used sourcetree, but will be investigating it as I use tortoisesvn). The slides could have been animated so as to not have everything on screen at once, but again it's a 10 minute talk.

Devkit. By the People, For the People.
Very interesting talk. Great layout of slides, and we'll presented by Vitor. You did go through quickly on the slides, but I will rewatch on YouTube to read some of the code you had on screen :)

Development Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs! What's not to love. Andy started off a little slowly, and I was a little confused as to where he was going, but after a few minutes, all was made clear. Now I want to integrate a 'dinosauraas' into the offfice. Some code examples would have been good, but I'm laughing to much to care (nice one Andy)

Build your own Neural Network, with PHP!
Excellent talk, slides were presented well, and VĂ­tor knew his stuff. Some of the math involved did get a little complex, and I had to remember my A level maths course (which I did 20 years ago). Also, was a little rushed at the end, but this was due to the time limit imposed. Otherwise great talk, and I'm going to have a play with the code

Time Zones and Calendars are a PITA
Fantastic talk, great I sight into DateTimeImmutable especially as I've fallen into the trap of DateTime. I'm looking forward to Dericks next book. A bit of feedback is remembering what slides you have (the last one did sneak up), but otherwise thoroughly enjoyable

Get out of jail "free" cards - tips and quick fixes to get you out of sticky situations with servers, websites and APIs
Fantastic talk by Chris and Dave. Some excellent tips provided, a few which I will be taking away. The format worked well, with lots of sub topics. The use of memes was great. It would have been great to see some 'more'* live or prerecorded examples of the items shown to help explain some of the issues (eg around the slow query logging) * Edit: added in the more as Chris has a small video of the git rebasing... (It's like he knew I wrote this comment ;) )

Performance optimisation: how do I go about it?
Great talk by Kat. The example with Xdebug and qcache was informative, and although I've been using Xdebug for a while, I haven't used Qcache (guess I'll be installing that tomorrow). No major gripes... I think there was a small spelling mistake on an early slide where it said 'is' instead of 'in',but it's me being picky.

Update to my original... Kat has now fixed the typo... :)

Software Complexities
Great talk by Peter. Great use of humour, and definitely some key points to take away. Presentation was good, and everything said is so so true. Peter started off bouncing whilst talking, but probably initial nerves to doing the talk.

Machine learning and trend analysis in PHP
Brilliant talk by Michael. Some great real world examples, and some basic math too. Humour worked well, and some interactions with the audience kinda worked (probably didn't help that we had beer). Some of the back and forth of slides were a bit confusing, but in all it worked well.
