Practical API security
Great in-depth explanation of some layered security techniques w/ good explanations of the how/why, and opportunity for hands on coding. I'm interested in a copy of the slides from the opening... particularly the ones detailing the layers.

Kafka with your microservices architecture
Provided some surface comparison between Kafka and other queueing solutions, which was nice. Would have been better to have some in-depth PHP info. Or, any PHP info. All code examples focused on Java. I guess this is a reflection of Zendcon's new expanded scope?

PHP: A glimpse into the future
Good look into the future... though, the bombshell at the opening was sorta slipped in and not discussed much after. :)

Fear not a PHP segfault
Good info. Bummed the live demo got cut. Understand the reluctance to rely up on the hotel/conference wifi. Maybe next time a self-contained demo can be made?

Winning together
I get nervous talking to a small room of developers about PHPUnit. I can't imagine what it takes to give a talk like this one. Thanks for sharing. Also, no need to feel silly for coming to an incorrect conclusion based on incomplete information.

Do more, server less
A good, high level introduction to serverless computing. Maybe on the next iteration use some of the extra time to get into some of the technical details of the POC. Maybe the code design, or the actual deployment mechanics.

An entertaining and easily digestable talk. Easy to walk away w/ the message of recognizing the ways in which you may already be a leader.

Welcome to the PHP community
????? I really liked it. Seriously, though, I liked that the talk acknowledged things that a lot of people in the audience likely could identify with. And, gave good examples of actions they could take right away at the conference.

Laravel for the PHPurist
This was a great look into the internals of Laravel. There's obviously a lot more about Laravel to cover than could be done in just an hour. But, I learned a fair bit here.

Dealing With Development Overload
This talk provided some good, specific suggestions. I, in particular, plan to negotiate for the 4 hrs/week to work on open source and/or personal learning/growth in the future.

Docker Alphabet Soup
I'm very interested in the subject matter. And I think the presentation did a good job of introducing topics. Unfortunately, the live demo portions could be clunky and disjointed at times. I wonder if you'd consider static slides that show the commands to issue and the output. And, only resorting to live demos for questions that go beyond the script.

Pop Songs and Programming for Fun and Profit
I think this talk delivered a good message about how to grow your career, and help others to grow. The personal stories were nice. I know music was a theme tying the talk together, but I found the background music distracting. Could be a flaw with my hearing: I often have trouble clearly hearing what people are saying when there is background noise. Overall, though, great message. Solid ending to the conference.
