Building Rock Solid Software in the Real World
Slides had great content, but I think maybe it was too much content. I would have liked to have seen more focus on less things, maybe a few more concrete examples. Also, I think maybe try and put a little more excitement into it, really sell it a bit harder.

200K+ reasons why security is a must
This talk was not what I expected, though it was still extremely valuable. It was more about what to be "afraid of" rather than getting deep into how to solve those problems. A great checklist for security issues you might not always think of.

MySQL: Analysis, understanding, and optimization of queries
I didn't expect to learn anything from this talk, as I was just sitting in the back catching up on work. I picked up 2 things I didn't know, and this explanation of how to use the explain plan for MySQL is probably the most accessible, easy to understand I've seen.
