27 Ways To Be A Better Developer
Great keynote Lorna and Ivo, very well done! Even though most of the 27 ways are "obvious" to me, it is still good to be reminded. You really inspired me and i think a lot of others too. And you presented it very naturally, wish i could do that.

Client-side Javascript Unit Testing
Great talk and very well prepared! A few side notes: - Maybe it's a good idea to first ask the audience some questions about whether they know about unittesting and have experience with unittesting in PHP. To get a good feel about the knowledge in your audience - You might want to consider to relate the assert functions to the appropriate PHPUnit functions for people that already know PHPUnit - I was wondering why you choose QUnit and not one of the other unittesting frameworks you mentioned in the beginning. Might be good to explain that next time. It was also great how you answeerd my question at the end by just trying it out. I didn't notice this was your first time speaking.

Unit Testing with Zend Framework
Great talk about unittesting. Although i don't have any experience with Zend Framework, i could still follow the examples. Too bad we don't use ZF here, but we will be using unittesting in the future.

great talk from a good speaker. I liked it very much, but would be nice to see more of the reflection api and how it's done using the tokenizer.

Writing documentation the easy way
It was a bit hard to follow the story. I guess the speaker was nervous and maybe not to well prepared. would have liked to see more about how docbook works and the benefits for using it for technical documentation.

Magic behind number - software metrics in practice
Very interesting talk and for me one of the best of the conference. You kept the attention of the audience and knew your stuff. Everything was well explained and easy to follow. I will look into Sonar soon because I didn't know about it and it seems very interesting. And the book you mentioned is on my wish list. one point of advice: do one slide with credits for all the things you got from the book. It seemed that everything slide almost was from the book which doesn't make a good impression. Otherwiser, well done!

PHP Tester's Toolbox
I don't know what I expected of the talk, but this wasn't it. It took only a few minutes before you lost my attention and somehow you didn't get it back. Too bad because it might have been worth it.

A Practical Look At Symfony2
For me personally, this was a great introduction in a framework that I haven't used before, but will be using in the near future. It was exactly what I expected and Stefan brought it well. Because I sat in the front I could almost read the code examples, but not quite. For me, it wasn't a problem because I could read some of it and Stefan explained it very well.

Developers! Y U NO open source your code?
I agree with the talking speed, it could have been a little bit slower since the audience wasn't all English. Good talk, you really know you're stuff and you brought it well.

Symfony2
Great workshop, it really got me started on Symfony2 and I like the things I've seen so far of the framework. Symfony2 is cool :).Since I already had a project in mind it was easy to ask the questions needed to know how to handle the project and I can't wait to learn more and really get going with my project. I already installed Ubuntu yesterday on my laptop. Thanks Stefan for a great lesson on Symfony and for all your help!

Masterizing PHP Data Structure 102
Loved the way you showed examples from before (using arrays) and after (mostly using SPL) and advantages and disadvantages of both approaches. I will definitely look again at your slides and I will present it at our company so everyone can learn! It wasn't academic like your intention was so the message came through. I agree with the other comments that presentation skills can be improved. However, that didn't bother me in receiving the message you wanted to sent. Well done!

Estimation or, “How to Dig you own Grave”
Great slides and a very good talk. Although I knew most of it, it can't hurt to be reminded of some things once in a while. You are a very good speaker and I loved seeing you dance (or something like that) on stage :) One comment on the content for improvement: It wasn't always clear to me how the first part of the presentation was build up. The estimation during the sale process was very obvious, but how to estimate when the project starts, especially when you use a waterfall method instead of agile, wasn't very clear.

VIM + *nix Toolchain == PHP IDE
This was one of the best talks of the conference for me. I know my way around vim but I didn´t know there is so much you can do with it. Thanks for showing us Matthew! Too bad you ran out of time. This is definitely tutorial material! One suggestion: The keystrokes add-on you had in the upper right corner was well thought of, however because you were typing really fast, I couldn't follow it from the back of the room. It wasn't a big problem since you told use the key shortcuts in advance.

PHP traits, treat or threat?
Good talk Nick, I could tell you knew what you were talking about. Too bad you got lost at some points, maybe some rehearsing next time would be better. I would loved to hear you tell more about the advantages and disadvantages of using traits and put them next to each other. I think the structure of the talk could use some work. If you want someone to help, you know how to contact me :)

The lust for knowledge and experience
There wasn't a lot of new things in the talk, but this is an important topic and you gave a good overview. Itś good to be reminded of it. I agree with the speaking comments: try to talk more fluently, the "staccato" way of talking during the presentation wasn't always nice to listen too. But I guess this is down to practice and the language barrier. Hope you get the chance to practice more often, you did a great job on stage!

You are not only a speaker but also a comedian on stage. Great keynote, very entertaining! I loved the way you interacted with the audience and kept everyone awake. That is a special talent because I think most of us were really tired by the end of these two fantastic days of conference.

How not to design a toad
Very interesting talk. Some good points in there as well. I really liked the pauses between the different topics, makes you think about it what is being said. I think that is valuable to get your message across as well. You are a good speaker, any positive critics I already told you :)

Rasmus Lerdorf will do the Saturday opening keynote!
My expectations were a bit higher than what was delivered. I liked the idea of getting everyone to contribute back to php as well, since we keep "forgetting" that PHP is open source as well. Could have been more inspiring as well. Rasmus seemed nervous or something because he sounded really weird in the beginning.

PHP 5.4 Features You Will Actually Use
Great talk Lorna, as always! Try and talk a little bit slower next time. Even though I did see the slides before, it was still informative and it gave me enough ideas on how to use the features. The JsonSerialize functionality I would definitely use and on monday, I'll convinve my boss to upgrade to php 5.4 :)

Lithium – The framework that contains the best of all worlds
I was too a bit disappointed. It didn't look like you were prepared as much as you could or maybe you were too nervous? I felt it was your first talk ever at a conference. I would say you'd do better if you gave an overview of the features of the framework and why you say it's the "best of both worlds". You didn't persuade me to check it out unfortunately. I did feel you know your stuff and the framework very well, but maybe due to that it was a bit too in-depth for me. You should probably loose most of the code that was on the slides. Also, the colors weren't very readable due to the contrast of the beamer (which is not your fault entirely, but it is something to keep in mind next time).

PhpDocumentor : your source matters
Thanks Mike for using ProTalk (http://protalk.me) as a live example! I really enjoyed your talk and you inspired me to do better at documenting my code. Would have been great if you setup the IDE up front and therefore you would have had more time to show more advanced / unknown docblock tags. However, I still picked up on a few things and it was great to see the improvements in the phpdocumentor interface once the documentation is generated.

Community works for business too!
Inspiring keynote, a bit too business focussed for the audience. However, these could be points developers in the audience could use to persuade their bosses to get involved. It could indeed be a little bit shorter, because there was too much repetition in it, but I liked the pauses between the points you made.

Build RESTful JSON API's with HAL
Great tutorial Matthew! Really hands-on, which worked pretty well. There are some things you could improve. I loved the extensive documentation for the exercises, you prepped really well. Maybe next time skip some of the exercises or try and get some startup code in place for people to use. Also I think some of the exercises (like the 4th one) could be integrated with other exercises. They will get bigger, but if you give a basis to start with, then it shouldn't take more time. Also, to me the first exercises were a bit simple (knowing json pretty well already). But I know that is because you don't really know the audience up front.

Get Off my Internets - building offline web applications
Interesting talk. Good presentation style to keep your audience awake :). Loved the code samples and your site with the trialtool is really good. Would love to see more of a comparison between the offline strategies next time and less talk about libraries. It's good to know there is a jquery plugin, but a demo wouldn't have been necessary. Even though I am not a starwars fan, I still liked the theme of slides. Just try a presenter next time so you'll get to the next slide easier :)

Know your algorithms - sorting and searching
Interesting talk which leads me back to my computer science education. I wouldn't have mind a little bit more theory. But what I would definitely add to your slides is a visualization of the algorithms in a diagram before showing the code. The visualization when the code ran was sometimes a bit hard to follow, I think there are some improvements to be made there. All in all a good and interesting talk. You managed to keep me awake :)

Easy HTTP Clients with Guzzle
I agree with Jeremy. The topic is really intersting and I never thought there was so much to it to be honest. Really need to check Guzzle out some time. However, next time try to make it into a story and please use more joind.in examples. It was good to do, but it would have been nice if all the examples used joind.in. Also, maybe try and create more structure into it and build it up, starting small and then expand until you covered all/most of the functionalities. I hope this helps.
