Singletons in PHP - Why they are bad and how you can eliminate them from your applications
The talk presented a very good overview of the reasons why the use of Singletons should generally be discouraged and presented good alternatives.

Profiling PHP Applications
Very informative, even though I thought I knew how to profile a PHP application Derick taught me a lot of things I didn't know.

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Open Source Communities
Very interesting and engaging talk, lots of great ideas. Sadly, no real chocolate chip cookies were handed out. Elizabeth was kind enough to put the recipe on a slide tho :)

Why you should be using and contributing to OpenStreetMap and not GoogleMaps.
Derick gave a nice overview about what OSM is and showed some very interesting activities of the OSM community. He also mentioned some very convincing points why one should use OSM instead of Google Maps.

Dealing with Difficult People
Elizabeth is normally a very engaging speaker. This talk was lackluster though, sadly. The talk was originally intended to be one hour long so to fit into the 15 minute slot, she just spoke very fast. That sadly didn't work so well :(

React: Event-driven PHP
A very good introduction to non-blocking I/O and event loops in PHP, as well as a good overview about reactPHP. One demo didn't work quite as expected, but that's always a risk with live demos under unknown network conditions. Bonus points for the Half-Life / Portal reference, extra bonus points for Pony.

How PHP Changed the World of Programming
A very thought-inspiring keynote. Anthony highlighted how awesome we - the PHP community - can be when we unite and attack a problem together, and how dangerous it is for us to divide the community into silos. He called us all out to welcome everyone from the community, no matter their framework or CMS of choice, and to include and educate them instead of looking down upon them. His reminder that we are all on the same team resonated with me and gave me a lot to think about.

Introduction to Apigility
A great introduction to Apigility that got me very interested in actually using the tool in future API projects.

PHP School: From developer to teacher... <=20 minutes
An excellent, well-presented introduction to the phpschool project, and the project itself definitely needs more eyeballs on it. This deserves a full time slot!

Speed up your unit testing with Docker
A good introduction on how to parallelize phpunit's execution for fun and profit. I feel it could have been a bit more clear about the fact that the last example only times *startup* not the whole execution of the unit tests. There is definitely merit in the technique Mike presents though, and the presentation itself was great.

DEPTRAC: Keep your architecture clean
Great session, very interesting project! I felt that the examples could have been a bit clearer on what causes deptrac's checks to fail, and how to define exceptions. Otherwise, very good!
