MySQL 8
Fantastic information about MySQL 8 - I'm especially a fan of the new MySQL shell! I think the pace was a little off, but over all great information about the new features.

How to Go from Developer to Stakeholder
Fantastic talk from a very engaging speaker. The points made in this talk are not specific to the IT industry and I believe that anybody could have positive takeaways from this presentation. The part about even the small ways to stand up for yourself are especially relevant. I've got a handful of friends and colleagues who struggle with that so hopefully this keynote empowered them a little!

Practicing YAGNI (You Aren't Gonna Need It)
Excluding the keynotes, this is probably my favorite talk of Day 1. I came to this presentation looking for tidbits of knowledge as I feel like I'm a bit on the more extreme end of YAGNI already, and I realized I certainly had more room to go. I absolutely enjoyed his approach of "If you want to go all the way with YAGNI, you could just serve up a static json file" - I didn't even think of this approach but it certainly is the farthest. Definitely good info! If you haven't already heard of JMac - go ahead and look him up online. He's full of great info from twitter tips to free workshops on writing cleaner code!

How to Communicate When You are from Mars and the Business is from Venus
Very engaging talk! Nancy gave us a little bit of self-examination of our own personalities which always ends up insightful. This presentation was very fun and educational, the only drawback is that the rest of my company wasn't here to participate in the same talk!

A topic like this easily has the ability to lose the audience, but this speaker did a good job of keeping people engaged.

Confessions Of a Not-So-Accidental Leader
Really good talk at reframing what leadership might mean to you and how you might possess leadership qualities without realizing it.

Performance optimisation: how do I go about it?
Fantastic overview of how to get started with performance optimization the right way! Seeing that this talk was tagged as a beginner talk had me a bit hesitant as I've already been comfortable using xdebug's profiling and blackfire, but I picked up quite a few new tricks!

PHP Internals for the Inquisitive Developer
Good look into how the internals work! I learned a good bit about when interacting with strace and generating backtraces and interacting with them with gdb.
