Building a Zend Framework 2 Application
An fantastic introduction to ZF2. It was that good it had me getting up at 3am the next morning as I had ideas whirling round my head that I needed to get typed up and contribute back.

Estimation - or How to Dig your own Grave
A fantastic talk on how to estimate your time and some amusingly unanticipated practical examples of how it can all go wrong. With some interesting aspects of estimating a project I had never considered before it was invaluable hearing another developers take on it. Also an introduction to the Kano Model... somthing to use in my next project I think

CLI, the other SAPI
Great to see some practical demonstrations and some challenges being taken from the audience. A great talk taking us through the basics of CLI scripting with PHP to some of the more complex tasks such as process forking. I'm looking forward to the next talk from Thijs that i get to see

Create your own PHP extension step by step
Great into in how to create an extension for PHP (event though my C skills are pretty much non existant) Practicals made it lots of fun with tons of help From Patrick, Derick and Anthony for the noobs (me) in the room. Also provided details on useful ways to interrogate the PHP source to learn more about PHP as well as ways to create extensions. Wish it could have been a full day tutorial as it felt like there was a lot more to learn

Building scalable PHP applications using Google's App Engine
As always a very enthusiastic talk from Ian that made me want to go and start tinkering with the app engine almost immediately. Having Mandy there was great as it provided an extra level to the talk. The example using joind.in was well delivered and came across much better than any "hello world" app ever could have as it gave a real world experience for someone who might want to migrate to app engine.

The Big 'Why equal doesn't equal' Quiz
This was a fantastic eye-opening quiz that was both engaging and informative whist remaining fun. I am so going to steal some of Juliettes questions for my interview process when hiring a new dev. For the record I scored 24

Adding 1.21 Gigawatts to Applications with RabbitMQ
A great tutorial with a lot of info and great examples how to use RabbitMQ with some awesome live coding. It would have been nice to have some of the code available in the git repo (maybe as branches) to allow people to view the variation of code examples and also allow others to catch up if need be as I was a bit late to the tutorial and was continually playing catchup

Functional structures in PHP
Interesting talk, great to see someone promoting functional programming in PHP. Thankfully a basic knowledge of Scala helped me to understand the content that was delivered from an very engaging speaker. I got the impression from the back of the room however, that some of the points & examples discussed were not clearly understood. This may be because there was a lot of content that was delivered very very quickly under the assumption that the majority of the audience has some understanding of some basic concepts in functional programming. I would suggest a bit more of an introduction to some of the concepts in functional programming at the start of the talk... In my opinion this would make an excellent workshop/tutorial session
