Real world Quality Assurance, unit testing, code review
good workshop, especially considering the title was given! It was to much to cover in 3 hours, but still I learned a lot and I can work from that to figure stuff out myself. Interaction with the audience was good, this way more time was spend on what the audience wanted to hear most.

27 Ways To Be A Better Developer
Nice talk to start the conference with. Although some of the points were a bit obvious, they were also a good reminder. Lorna was nice to listen to and interacted nice with the audience, seemed more like she was telling a story. Ivo was a little harder to follow, he seemed to be reading a bit more from his notes.

Stress-Free Deployment
Good introduction in how to do stress free deployments. Some nice examples of how things can be done in a good way and how you should not do it. Good pointers to tools that can be used and how to use them. I will be using this information in the very near future! tnx!

Why Service Oriented Architecture Is A Good Thing
use cases from NOS were nice, but more technical details would have been useful. Not sure what to do with the information I got, would have liked to have some more technical depth to be able to apply it in other situations. Also missed information on what good ways of doing this are and what are big no-no's. Perhaps a nice talk for management or not-so-technical-folks, but not for the technical audience at phpbnl11.

Designing HTTP Interfaces and RESTful Web Services
Great talk, easy to follow. Good technical information that was very detailed and explained well. The jokes could be distracting a bit for some people, but it made a great atmosphere so I wouldn't recommend leaving those out.

Seeing PHP through a blue azure sky
Not a very well structured talk. Always consider who your audience is when you prepare. Especially when you are Microsoft in front of a (almost) completely opensource crowd! You should adjust your slides and your words to your audience. In this case it would have been better if it was less "commercial" and more "technical". Never expect a technical audience to "just believe that it works easy". They are the ones that have to work with it, so just show how it works! They are not afraid for some technical information.

Benchmarking Applications And Frameworks
Very informative talk. Especially the explanation that it is more important to look at differences in benchmarks between different numbers than actual results. I will be using this in the future! tnx!

Harness The Power Of Sed And Awk
Good talk and a good introduction for sed and awk. Most people don't think a tool such as these can help them doing things much faster. Starting to use a tool like these from scratch is a lot of work. The examples were good and made more complicated in steps, that makes it more easy to understand.

Zeta Components
Good and informative talk. Good walk-through of what it can do with some good simple examples. Already hooked ZetaComponents to my framework and it is already replaced some email functionality and is happily generating some graphs! Planning on creating something that will make use of the email-reading functionality.

Project Triage & Recovery
Nice talk with some very good points. I will implement some of the things said in my work process for sure. Good showcase of you did things, was nice to see how "the-other-project" performed in the same time. Most important for me was: don't wait with a release until all bugs are fixed, just fix the important ones! Also had a great time! :P

Improving Code Quality with Continuous Integration
no need to repeat the differences between phpundercontrol and jenkins, as they are mostly about looks. Most of the difference's could be described as similarity's: the same tool is behind the information. For the next talk about this, try to focus on the real differences. That way people can make a decision on what is important for them and use that tool. In all a good talk. You only seemed a bit nervous, no need for that. we don't bite! well... I won't! Someone else might, but I doubt it.

15 Pro-tips for MySQL users
Great talk and a lot of information! Only some things weren't completely new for me. Information about indexes was very useful, I didn't know it was that bad at times! Also nice to see a speaker so enthusiastic about the topic he is speaking about. :) Only downside was the size of the examples on the screen, but that was picked up in a good way by explaining in detail what was on the screen.

Implementing WebDAV in your PHP application
Good informative talk. I was completely new to the topic and this gave me some clear information so I know what can be done with it. Nice simple examples that at times even went to important details. I'm not expecting to use it soon, but knowing what is possible is very important.

Joel test: how we do it
Good talk with some nice insights into e-sites. Do try to look at the audience when talking and not at the screen, a remote might be useful.

Database version control without pain
Didn't see this talk before, I must have been the only one... Very good talk with a lot of information on how to do database version control. Good in-depth information where useful, but not too much. Very good pointers for things to look out for and some good suggestions on what available tools you can use or how to create some simple tools yourself.

Pursuing Practices of Domain - Driven Design in PHP
Try improving your slides by putting less on a single slide and moving to the next slide faster. (David Zuelke has slides that are only up a couple of seconds...) Using some diagrams on the screen would make things better to follow. With your accent, try to speak a bit slower and louder, that would make it easier for people to follow you despite the accent.

Geolocation and Maps with PHP
Good talk with some nice demo's. Was hoping to see so more practical applications like how to search for locations from PHP for instance. Some of the demo's went a bit to deep and became more something like "look what I can do with pubs". Still, loads of useful information.

Clean PHP
I think to much information was pushed into this talk. Focusing on the most import ones with some more examples would remove the rushing part of the talk. The sheets were beautiful, bit simply boring. More information on the sheets would also make it easier to follow. All in all, the talk was a bit boring to follow, but a huge amount of very good information.

First Class APIs
Good talk with some very good points made. Went a bit to deep "bashing" twitter on how they did things wrong. But other than that very good to follow with some very good information and nice pointers.

Implementing OAuth
Good presentation and entertaining to watch. Attention to important details and common pitfalls. Still, some suggestions to improve: - give 1 or more known real-world examples who is the provider, user and consumer in existing implementations. This will help with the mental picture a lot. - you could create a diagram with the provider, user and consumer in a "triangle" position. Then explain/show how the dance works step by step using arrows between the three. This could improve the mental image of how this works. bonus points: use images of feet as arrows so it actually looks like a dance! Still, this talk is worth all 5 thumbs.

Agility and Quality
Sebastian may not be as charismatic as Aral, but he knows his stuff. Loads of new stuff for me, but also loads of things I already knew which is a nice reminder. Hope you find a way to make your talks a little more entertaining, but the message is more important than how it is delivered.

Strong cryptography in PHP
one of the few talks that were actually tailored to PHP. Talk didn't went very fluently, felt like you had to figure out what to tell next. Not sure what caused that.

Community works!
Good subject, good information, nice sheets although some images might have worked. Especially "gimmick-images" that may be funny in the context. I was missing some enthusiasm in the posture of the speaker as well as in the way of speaking. Speaker sounded a bit dull, even though I know the enthusiasm of the speaker on the subject. More enthusiasm may make the talk more interesting and may promote opensource even better. feel free to contact me if unclear or extra feedback is wanted.

Mastering namespaces in PHP
Good and interesting technical talk. Overall presentation was good. Some points for improving this talk in the future: - prevent the combination of conflicting colors next to each other like blue and red. - when using a beamer a black background with a white font usually works best. as for the contents of the talk: I missed the following example: "class newclass extends \fully\qualified\class\name {" instead there was a heavy emphasis on "use" in a namespace. Most of the time there is no need to for "use" in my humble opinion. Also the explanation for when a function or constant is missing in a namespace could be a bit more clear. It doesn't "fallback to the globalspace", but the the parent namespace. And it keeps doing that until it finds it or ends up in globalspace where it may give an error. hope you can use the feedback for future talks! When more feedback is wanted, feel free to contact me.

Let's live inside the browser
Good clear speaker that is easy to follow. It's a wide subject which caused the presentation lacking in-depth information, which I was hoping for. Might have been better to have more focus on some parts and give some more in-depth information.

SPL Data Structures and their Complexity
Very good talk and very easy to follow speaker. The math was way over my head and I think most of the attendees. The presentation might do better with a little less theoretical information. Also a bit more information how to use the different structures in PHP in reality would be nice. What structure to use in what situation for instance?

DocBlox: your source matters
Good clear presentation. It came close to "selling the product", but not too close. Only bad thing was the examples that weren't readable on the slides.

MongoDB, een introductie
Was hoping for some good examples on what can be done with MongoDB, but was left a bit disappointed. Might be a good idea to dive a bit deeper in the subject before giving a presentation on the subject. I think a simple map/reduce example would be needed to make it a complete presentation, preferably in such a way that is clear what can be done with it. Skip the demo and just put it as prefabricated examples on the slides. The subject allows you to do that. Although a live demo is cool, you need a bit more knowledge on the subject and speaking experience to pull that one off and still give a good presentation. More knowledge on the subject would also allow for answering questions more easily. But most importantly: don't let me stop you from doing another talk!

Develop your career!
Speaker was trying to be too funny, with jokes that would be more appropriate at a bar. Talk was lacking in structure which was annoying. It was also a bit repetitive at points, which was also annoying. Overall, recruiters are annoying. But that isn't news... But do please keep sponsoring :) it is very much appreciated.

Reverse caching proxies: Varnish or Nginx?
Good talk, lots of useful information. The loads of extra functionality that comes with Nginx was a bit hidden though. But that is what you get when comparing only a specific feature.

Fun with BIG Data with various databases
There is a lot of knowledge for sure, but conveying the knowledge to a public is problematic. The talk appeared unpracticed or not well prepared. There was probably too much information crammed in the 45 minutes. When using an "alternative tool for slides", make sure how to use it and where to put your mouse to show on your screen what you want to show. Lots of parts were missing the explanation, so I'm still guessing on what caused the slow queries.

Modern HTTP Architecture

Deploying your apps... the right way!
Good informative talk. You do tell too often "what comes next". There is no need for that, we will find out within 45 minutes. The amount of time is short, so don't waste it on an agenda. I also agree with Robin that I live deployment from a conference should be no problem if you trust your deployment strategy. Given the fact that Capistrano aborts when the connection fails, the worst that could have happen was that your deployment just stopped and nothing would have changed on the server. Next time: live deployment to production demo!

How to Migrate Anything with DDD
Misleading title + description. was more of a sales pitch for baleen. The DDD part was more of a description on what direction Baleen would be taking in the future. So, expected something quite different. As for the content of the talk itself, a more detailed in-depth examples of how to do something with (for example doctrine) would be useful and would make a lot of things a lot more clear. Instead of "you can write your own bit of code for doctrine/whatever-orm, show an actual example of what you need to do.
