Symfony 4 – Hands On!
Attempt 2, sorry: This might have been a case of wrong expectations on my side. This tutorial was my first choice, but tickets for this tutorial were sold out. When the tutorial I chose got cancelled because the speaker fell ill, I was able to attent this tutorial after all. I think that what I expected was more emphasis on the 3.4 to 4.0 change. The first part of the tutorial did cover this, but not that much more than what I already figured out by starting a blank Symfony 4 project (and boy, starting that 4.0 project was a shocker! Where's Doctrine? Where's Twig?). The second half (the hands-on part) was basically what I do all the time: creating Entities, Controllers, Twig templates and Console commands. It was interesting to see the slightly different approach with controllers, but other than that, not much new. Looking around, I saw lots of attendees using Slack, WhatsApp or checking their mailbox, so I think I wasn't the only one having the "been there, done that" feeling.

Disco – A fresh look at DI
I've only used the Symfony container when it comes to DI so far, so can't compare it to other DI implementations, but I'd definitely give this a go when starting a non-Symfony project. Thanks for the talk.

Go for PHP Developers
Nice introduction to Go. Definitely will give it a go! (ba-dum tsss) A few more pointers on when to use it might have been a good addition.

Tales from the wrong end
When this vulnerability appeared on our radar, it was All hands on deck for us. It was very interesting to hear about the whole process from your point of view. Thanks for sharing your story!

Challenges deploying PHP apps on multi node docker swarm
We're currently in the process of moving to a clustered container based solution for our products, so this talk caught my eye. Especially the "what about our data?" question, since it's what we're struggling with, too. I was a bit disappointed about the "we'll just pin our MySQL service down to a specific node", which to me defies the whole purpose of working with a cluster that dynamically allocates services across nodes based on load, etc. I guess I was hoping for a silver bullet, which probably isn't out there (yet). All in all, I think this talk was more aimed at people that haven't actually looked at clustered Docker environments yet, as opposed to people having experimented with Swarm or Kubernetes and are looking for answers to limitations they're facing (persistent storage, networking, etc.). This might been a misplaced expectation on my side.

Practical privacy - GDPR explained
Wouldn't want to have missed this. Sorry Wim fell ill, but replacing his talk with this one was a very good call.

Symfony Internals
Very interesting talk. Not having bothered to dive into Symfony's guts that much myself, only assuming how things work internally, it was good to hear that most of my assumptions were correct. This information definitely helps me decide how to approach certain things in Symfony.

Anonymous Classes: Behind the Mask
Prior to the talk I couldn't come up with why anonymous classes add anything useful, I was surprised to stand corrected! Although I wouldn't agree on all usecases (I felt that the use case for the first example, with the locations, could be solved much simpler, and I think that private methods shouldn't be tested just because you can now) there's still plenty of situations where anonymous classes are a valid addition to the toolkit. Thanks for the insights!

Proactive web security
Great talk. One of the gems of this year's conference. It reaffirmed that we're using good practices already (yay for the Symfony security check in CI :-) ) and provided some good pointers on where to improve.
