Very good conference. Only negative note, the organization of the dinner on friday was a bit lacky: food was delivered on small quantities each time, and people leaved. Dinner venue from last was better and "warmer".

Great organization and selection of talks of multiple levels. I think the 1-hour slots can be a bit long for our attention span, something like 45' or 50' could work better.

Great conf! Just a little advice about the website: maybe it does make much sense to keep the call to action of "get tickets now" during conference days. A link to schedule would be faster (or, even faster, schedule on home page)

Great conference as always but there're no indication about the level of the talk in the schedule. It was difficult choose what attend without it.

Nice conference: very good location and very good organized.
Just one thing: please bring back the "beginner - intermediate - advanced" advice in the schedule: it was really good! :)

Yet another great edition of PHPDay.

Why not brilliant?

It might be more about me then the organizers of the conference. Every year, they have been raising the bar so much that I just expected more. As this was my 6th edition, I noticed a small slide down in quality of the talks.

Too many of them were targeting beginners and some intermediates. I went thru the list of previous conference editions and found higher percentage of advanced talks there.

As a speaker, I would suggest to move speakers dinner to evening before the first day: that way speakers can join the social event and mingle with attendees as well.
