Harness the real power of Drupal
Really enjoyed this talk. There was a good overview of the structure of the Drupal system, which was interesting to hear as i don't know much about Drupal yet. Also the argumentation on when and when not to use it is really valuable and was clearly stated.

So You Want to be an Architect
Excellent talk. Josh's talk just confirmed that my ambition is called 'being an architect', and provided good things to take into account when being one. Also the discussions and suggestions in the IRC channel contributed a lot to this talk.

27 Ways To Be A Better Developer
Very inspiring keynote! Although i agree with comments above that some 'ways' were stating the obvious, it doesn't hurt at all to mention them for those who the way of approaching may not be obvious, or simply didn't think of it before. It was an enjoyable keynote with nice bits of humour, with the result of what -in my opinion- a keynote's purpose is: emphasize the reason and topic of the conference, and to 'loosen up' the audience.

Stress-Free Deployment
Great talk Rob! Like mentioned before it was nice to see real-world examples and use cases. This gave me a good overview of how to automate deployment of projects that allow deployment process being automated.

Why Service Oriented Architecture Is A Good Thing
Overall, this talk gave a nice overview of why to use a SOA. It would have been nice to see a specific problem solved with a "traditional" architecture versus a SOA one. I was hoping to see a comparison between the two.

Seeing PHP through a blue azure sky
I have to agree the presentation was a bit messy, but it explained the Azure services quite well. I'm all new to the cloud 'stuff' but i was surprised that Azure has a local development environment. That looks really promising! Will definitely experiment with this in the future!

Advanced CouchDB
This was a nice introduction about the more advanced functions of CouchDB. I'm unfamiliar with the NoSQL principle, but this talk was a nice teaser. I liked the fact that there was a short introductional part. Code examples were a bit hard to read though.

How To Build Customizable Multitenant Web Applications
Although the presented solution wouldn't be of my personal preference, the different approaches to solving the problem were OK. I had expected a bit more of this talk. Actually, i was hoping Stephan would present in-depth on how to solve this problem with constructions other than code generation. Which is, in my perspective, not the ideal way to fix this problem.

Had a good laugh at this presentation. Good content. Sometimes a little obvious, but as with all conference talks not obvious for all. The audio problems at the start did not stop Diederik AT ALL.

Pre Conference Social
It was a fun and good pre-conf social! Met a lot of people, which is good because it sets the tone for the rest of the conference. As mentioned before, the music was too loud, but it didn't ruin the night or anything.

Zend Framework 2: state of the art

A Practical Look At Symfony2
As a total Symfony2 newbie i very much enjoyed the global overview of the framework and the explanation of how to set up a Symfony2 application. I think the choice of having a small website like linktuesday.com as a practical example was a good one. Also, launching linktuesday.com as an open source project was pretty cool. Code samples that big are hard to show in a presentation. Adri Kodde has a good point; maybe you can upload the slides right before the presentation. But then again... the WiFi. Was really satisfied overall!

Are Your Tests Really Helping?
Great presentation. I'm fairly new to the topic and this talk was very delightful. Learned what and why you should test. Some of the products you were speaking of i had not heard about before (forgot to write them down, sorry). I would've appreciated a short summary before discussing a certain product.

Zend Framework 2
I can only agree with Harrie before me. Not a lot hands-on, but that didn't bother me at all. The tutorial gave an excellent introduction to the new version of the framework. Now it's time to play a bit more with zf2!

HTTP is your architecture
Well presented, you guys are a good speaker duo. A few more practical would've been nice. Judging by some of the previous comments, there's still a lot of confusion about how to incorporate HTTP effectively in certain environments. It was good, because it confirmed my current knowledge of HTTP (and REST), and i also learned some new things and got inspired.

Magic Behind the Numbers – Software Metrics In Practice
Interesting talk, but a little too much into numbers for me. Rather i would've been more interested into hearing about the essence of the tools that use the metrics. The slides that compared the metrics to other languages were interesting to see though. Also, it was well presented, very knowledgeable!

Writing testable code
Great talk! Kore and Tobias are a great combination and together they make sure that you won't miss out on a single detail. The examples were good. Although things covered in this talk was basic OO design (kinda obvious), i learned about the SOLID principle, and raised awareness on the importance of good OO software design.

How not to design a toad
Interesting topic for a developer conference! It was well presented and there were some technical difficulties which Mike handled very professionally. The talk contains a nice basic set of tips. Since there was time left, put in some more tips and tricks perhaps together with some more examples. Talk pace was quiet slow, which makes it easy to follow, but easy to lose attention as well. Luckily it had a kitten right in the middle! Well done Mike!

Frisby.js: BDD for your REST API
Excellent talk. Well presented and a lot of in-depth information supported by practical examples. However, i was a little bit disappointed that there is no support for XML, and found out about this while I was in the room already. Made the presentation more or less useless to me. Put it in the talk abstract next time!

Profiling PHP, A dive into your application
Very nice presentation on an interesting subject! Starting off with some terminology was helpful, and the use of examples throughout the presentation made it very engaging and easy to understand. The live demo afterwards was the cherry on the cake, very well done! Some more information about how the passive profilers you mentioned are different from one another would've been a nice addition. Especially the commercial ones. But then again, I can imagine that is worth a separate presentation! You inspired me for sure!
