Symfony 4 – Hands On!
I found it very interesting to see the new streamlined features of Symfony 4.0. I had no trouble following along, except at the end where things went a bit fast. Also, it's probably not wise to say that you came up with the idea for the second part of the tutorial one day before. Despite that lack of preparation it did go quite smoothly, so there's obviously a lot of expertise involved in the coding.

The Science of Code Reviews
Very accessible talk. The speaker definitely deserves credit for not being phased at all by the microphone and sound issues.

Don’t work for PHPCS, make PHPCS work for you
Well prepared talk by a knowledgeable speaker. Well structured with good depth and demos, especially the clear explanation about rulesets and standards stood out for me.

An interesting story about the risks and rewards of maintaining open source software.

Does the SPL still have any relevance in the Brave New World of PHP7?
Interesting topic that brought some useful info, but missed a clear-cut conclusion because its nature. The presentation style was too laid back for me and the repetition about iterators and data structures (e.g. Rudi Theunissen's) was a bit too much.

Practical privacy - GDPR explained
Incredibly relevant even though it feels a bit out of place at a convention about programming. It really made clear what rights end users have had in the past and will have in the future going forward, and what companies need to change in order to comply to the new regulation.

Refactoring, the third commandment
An important topic to become more aware of. I would have liked to have seen the content more substantiated - I felt that there was not always enough explanation about the why and how of personal experiences. Kudos for the great accent.

Symfony Internals
Great explanation of the philosophy and inner workings of Symfony by an expert on the topic. Slightly dry stuff, but good to know about and base architecture off of.

The Docker development template for PHP
As someone who doesn't (yet) use Docker, I found the talk interesting even though for me it didn't really reduce the "abracadabra" level of the technical complexity.

Beyond REST maturity levels: Insights from building a real life, high-load REST API
An interesting example of a real-life API that was brought in a monotome way that unfortunately did not connect. I also would have loved to see more focus on REST and the technology stack in general, and a bit less on things like data maintenance (e.g. Elastic indexing). Maybe it wasn't wise to start the talk by immediately dismissing the part of the title about REST maturity levels, as it set a tone of deviation from expectations made by the talk's title and outline.

How PHP ticks
This talk really conveyed the passion of what it means to be a PHP developer. Though not strictly relevant for day-to-day programming, it is interesting to see what goes on under the hood. It was brought with such enthusiasm that it's hard not to get excited about PHP, its history and its future.

Closing and raffles
Fun, but feels a little bit like "going through the motions". Great aftermovie! But, I didn't win anything ;,)

Exploiting the brain for fun and profit
I find the human brain a really interesting thing, so it was fun to hear some tips and tricks to help it along. At some points it felt a little bit forced (programmers are lazy people - I just want to sit!) and I'm not sure why the speaker is an authority on the subject. I did think she do well considering she didn't have her notes at hand. Here's hoping for power naps at work! Also, cute desktop photo.
