Generators: All About the Yield
I was able to follow well, but I have the advantage of having dealt with much of this in Python, where generators are more of a norm. And despite that, I still learned things about generators in PHP. What was hard to follow for me was the examples where there was a "yield 'return-val'" mixed with send() calls. It was much clearer to see what was happening with numbers being yielded instead, because it's obvious when "2" and "3" come back, that "1" was lost.

Understanding Docker for Development
This talk is THE talk I came for. I've always struggled to see what the point of Docker was. "I can run the exact same image in development and production, but if I develop, I will be changing that image, so what's the point?" I've got a much clearer picture of it now.

Building a GraphQL API In PHP
This was a nice introduction and helped me understand more about implementing GraphQL in PHP. I wish there had been more time to go deeper into implementation details.

SOLID In Practice
The examples were really good. The email service provider example especially is something that I've had to live through a couple of times.

The Sodium crypto library of PHP 7.2
The second half of this talk, about what distinct categories of operations sodium provides and what subset of functions are related to that, is absolute gold. All of that should be in the PHP manual. The first half, I knew already knew, so that wasn’t so engaging for me, but that’s probably just me.

Introduction to Serverless PHP
Super informative, I had no idea OpenWhisk nor the IBM cloud existed, and I never really looked into AWS Lambda “layers” after they announced it. Also, I love light-on-dark colors in general, but especially on projectors. The one thing I would try to change (it has its own problems) would be to add text to identify the textless logos. I feel like I missed a name or two.

The MySQL Document Store
Really informative about the document store, how it integrates with the rest of MySQL, and how to use it.

PWA for PHP Developers
This talk ended up not being what I expected at all (maybe I should have read the description here first.) The initial “there is no PHP in this talk” was unfortunately accurate, and it took a while to get to expanding the PWA/TNGT acronyms, and to making it clear that this is focused on mobile. Ben seems knowledgeable and interested, but the presentation itself seems conflicted about who the audience is.

What's New in PHP 7.3
Full disclosure, I probably read the changelog myself at some point. Even so, reviewing it was good, and there were things like Dead Code Elimination that I forgot (or had no idea) were actually there. Seeing the details for that was pretty cool.

Dealing With Development Overload
"we take the bite from the wrong side of the sandwich"—I don't even know how many times I have decided to approach a problem one way, climb over every mountain, and when I'm all done... there was a much easier way that it could have been done. (It's usually the documented way. Oops.)
