Using the Workflow component for e-commerce
Great talk. The structure of the talk was great. I left feeling like I knew how to use symfony workflows and I'm definitely going to check it out. All in all a well found replacement talk that gave me the knowledge I was hoping for from the first talk.

Symfony Messenger: 6 months already and more to come
A great talk about the current state of the messenger component. I would've loved more insight on what the future might look like since it's still experimental.

How static PHP analyzer changed the way I look at code
I loved the information that was shared. But the presentation has some improvement points. What I liked: - Great insights on what is great about static analyzers. - Showcased a few tools that you could use with an advise on where to start What I'd try to improve: - Screenshots of CLI tools were unreadable and therefore had no added value except "It's a cli tool" - You wen't into a lot of detail on which things an analyzer might pick up. This took a lot of time on your presentation but when I read the slide listing them I already knew everything I needed to know. Maybe some real life examples with some code in combination with SOLID / Design Pattern solutions would be nicer. - Some slides contained a lot of information on their own and then you added even more information on top. I would maybe split the slides and try to fit a narration to it. - Maybe even add some funny pictures/jokes to make the audience and yourself more comfortable. All In all I really appreciated the talk and I heard quite a few people who got really excited about static analyzers because of it. So thank you for your talk.

Building global web apps with multi-region hosting
Great talk with a great atmosphere and nice story line. Very follow-able. The conclusion felt a bit like a surprise the presentation felt like preparing me for a different conclusion.

When testing makes no sense
Great talk with interesting arguments. Also brought in a very lightweight and funny way which made it a great talk for in the afternoon.

Great show. Even better than expected. The magic show before was cool as well.

My first year with event sourcing (in Symfony)
Presentation was well structured with a very follow-able story line. The symfony part felt forced and unnecessary. Presenter did a great job on showing the big pitfalls on starting with ES.

Modern application built from scratch: API Platform FTW
Interesting subject and quite some information being shared but it was really hard for me to follow. Things I liked: - Very nice design slides with good readability* - Very well spoken and understandable * Except text on the bottom of the slide because I wasn't in the front row Things I didn't like: - It's was going pretty fast without any pauses or recaps on the current state. - At most parts of the talk I wasn't sure what problem was being solved. Without this context it's hard to think along. Suggestions: - Do regular recaps on what the state of the application is: example: "We did X so now we have Y. But Z won't work because we lack A. Let's get A". This keeps people up to date on what problem we're trying to solve and what work and what doesn't. My goal for this talk was to understand what api platform could bring. I got a general idea but I feel like I lost a lot of details. Thanks a lot for your talk.

What I've learnt after starting to work Symfony and PostgreSQL?
Very interesting talk showing interesting aspects of using PostgreSQL. The reason for switching from mySQL was answered in the question round but felt like it should've been part of the talk. Thanks for speaking and shedding light on an interesting subject.

Command and event patterns
A lot of great information in a short time with a laid back atmosphere. Gave me a good general idea on how to approach the patterns. Too bad the time was a bit short for some more details.

25 years of PHP
Good talk with quite a few different subjects (history , 7.3 & 7.4 , some tooling). The 7.3 and 7.4 part was still fun to follow even I was aware of most of it. The CO2 part felt a bit rushed/glossed over. This is a big and valid point and I feel you didn't give it enough time or maybe even passion. But still an excellent move to mention it. I hope it inspired more people to share their solutions.

Taming your Data with Elasticsearch
This was a good talk with a lot of information and a great insight in what elastic search can offer you in terms of solutions. What I feel could make this talk better is a story line to keep the attention of the audience. Just 1 story where you can fit in your different queries. (if it doesn't really fit make a silly joke about it) So a bit like this: - Ok we have this now... - But our customer wants to to get X when searching for Q. - Well elastic search can do this too. - We just do Y and Z and it returns X. All in all a solid talk with good information. I feel it will definitely make some people enthusiastic about Elasticsearch. Thanks for giving the talk.

Driving Technical Change
This was so much more then I expected. I was expecting a talk about personal experiences about trying to onboard new tech in the company. But it ended up being a little manual on how to analyse peoples behavior in negotiations and also strategies on how to convinces. You had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I have to add that I never did much research on this subject so it was a lot of new information which always is a big plus. ps. It seems I should've read the intro to the talk more thoroughly.

Don’t Wait; Generate!
Very nice talk about a subject that is I think still new for most people (including myself). First you were very well spoken and not as texan as you led us to believe (still very funny). So for me the start of the talk was very follow able. I had a general idea of what generators did but never used any or knew the exact details of how it worked. I think you showed use quite clearly how it worked and what to look out for. However when the basics were out of the way the jump to the more advanced stuff on what you could do with this felt too big. I got totally lost and only got a general idea of what you were doing. I feel this could've used an intermediate example to ease us into the idea of using generators and get us comfortable with it. It still got me excited about generators so I'm going to check them out. Maybe after I do I will understand what you were doing. Thanks a lot for giving this talk.

Brutal refactoring, lying code, the Churn, and other emotional stories from Legacy Land
Nice talk with some fun jokes and an all around fun atmosphere. Had a few usefull tips/guidelines for legacy code but apart from that no real groundbreaking information/solutions. Thanks for the talk!

Code Robustness with Phan
A good talk on an important subject. I think Phan is an amazing tool but I'm not sure you conviced people in the audience. (if I hadn't known about it I wouldn't have been). My main problem was that you were showing all kinds of errors phan detected but almost all of them are already detected by most IDE's (And I think most of the audience uses phpstorm). I think you would've made a bigger impression if you showed the more advanced checks Phan does on your code. Still a solid talk with good info and an important subject. Thanks for giving it.

Nuclear powered software security
Very nice talk. Not only did you explain to us how to handle security on wide scale. You also taught us the basics of how a nuclear reactor works. Very well done. The nuclear reactor part was a great guiding story to the rest. It really fit in well. It also showed me things I usually ignored (for example threats from inside the company network). Thanks for the great talk and insights.

Dependency Injection for Mere Humans
Very nice talk (texas joke still funny the 2nd time :D) Where you lost me for a moment is when you showed us the code snippet inside a tweet part. The code is hard to read (mostly due to the lack of proper names). While the code inside 1 or 2 tweets is cool I think it isn't right for the purpose of the talk. If those examples were more easy to read I think I would've followed that part better. Thanks a lot for the great talk.

Software Management Lessons from the 1960s
Great talk. Very informative but also entertaining. It got me inspired to read the book. Also bonus points for having to answer questions from Marco. (He is always watching)

Introduction to the Semantic Web
Great talk. With some good fun. The build up was great and easy to follow. Also very strong to show the downsides of the technologies. It got me informed and excited about these technologies. The crowd participation slide felt a bit negative with the whole "trust nothing" conclusion. Maybe add something to counter that negativity? like sharing a heavily moderated rdf source? All in all a great talk. Thank you for giving it and sharing your knowledge.
