Keynote : The New Revolution
The talk had an interesting bit of history and a good general message, but seemed a bit long-winded in places. The part about New York didn't seem to have a clear message and could (should?) have been skipped in my opinion. This would have made the talk more concise and not go over time.

Se7en Deployment Sins
Entertaining talk with a lot of sensible "don'ts". Some more focus on the 'do this in stead' could have been helpful.

Knowing your state machines
Very useful and practical talk. I will certainly be using (advocating the use of) state machines in our development in the near future.

Advanced Laravel: Avoid unified data models to make software development easier
Interesting take on making models more loosely coupled, but comes with a important down sides that the speaker didn't mention or glossed over. This kind of coupling breaks the 'one source of truth' rule, misconfigured events or outside changes could create invalid data. There is very little preventing (for example) speaker.name and talk.speakerName having different values.

How to tame a ?
Good talk with a nice build up from the basics of ASCII to the intricacies and pitfalls of making sure everything in your code will be using the 'holy grail' that is UTF-8. ?

Content Security Policies: Let's Break Stuff
Very good talk. Describes what a CSP is for, when to use it, how to use it and what to look out for. A nice complete introduction of the subject with a good dose of humour. (Yes, with a 'u' in it.)

Journey through "unhappy path" - Dealing with exceptional conditions
Nice, practical talk. Shows a multitude of better ways to handle errors in PHP than the often-used "return null or throw an exception and let some other class handle it"-method.

Unleash your web skills on native!
Pretty good introduction to the possibilities of NativeScript for building apps. I have one suggestion: give us a deeper look into a fully fledged app, like the robot one. In my opinion, the time spent explaining what components there are, how to use the colour schemes, the scrollbar controlled background-music-app, etc. could have been replaced with a short demo and then 'RTFM'. This would have left more time to focus on the more interesting parts.

The developer's model for talking to managers
Surprisingly useful! A lot of 'soft skill' talks deal mostly in vagueness and buzz words. You gave some concrete examples of difficult situations, explained why they happen and how to act when they do. Every dev, sales rep and manager should see this talk.

A LAMP Stack Professional’s Journey to Artificial Intelligence: Meet Johnny the Deployer!
The talk focused on what the speaker and their team had built, how they built it and how to set it up. A lot of time talking about how to set it up, could have been replaced with 'look at the code samples and read the docs'. There was little focus on how an AI like this could be implemented into the audiences's workflows and what benefits it would have over other forms of automation. I would also have liked it, if the talk had started with the demos, so you'd get: "Look what we can do - here's how we did it".

Keynote : Controlling the variables
It was a well-polished talk by a charismatic speaker, with a good message, but in my opinion, the balance was way off. About 10 minutes of the talk is spent on the actual message: work hard, be friendly, don't complain. Almost no time was being spent on how to achieve this yourself. In stead, the rest of the talk was a series of long-winded, ego-stroking stories about how awesome the speaker thinks he is. I'm aware these stories are supposed to be inspiring, but I think they should have been reduces to about 3 minutes each. So the talk could focus on the lessons themselves and include some practical advice on how to integrate this into your own life.
