The Sonata AdminBundle
Very difficult to understand, "frenchy english". Too much information, and also too much small code on the sheets. That maked it really hard to follow. However I think the bundle is really really cool. Haven't take a look at it yet, and thats also why it was hard to follow for me.

Masterizing PHP Data Structure 102
Enjoyed the talk, learned quite a few things about arrays and PHP internals. Not some rocket science, but things to take into account on my next project.

HTTP is your architecture
Nice talk, very nice presented. I also enjoyed the talks from Tobias on DPC '11, so it was a reason for me to visit this one too :) (Ofcourse the subject also interested me) After this talk I can confirm most of my apps don't speak HTTP...

The lust for knowledge and experience

PHP Content Repository Specification
Great talk, great subject and nice talking skills. I don't understand why you had a small audience? A lot of people will be using this in the near future I guess! Learned a lot more about PHPCR, I have been playing with the sandbox before and I really liked it. I could see you are enthusiastic about PHPCR, and that is convincing for others like me.

How not to design a toad

A quick start on Zend Framework 2
For me as Symfony2 developer it is good to see what other frameworks are doing. It was an good introduction and I think Zf2 is heading the right way.

Extending Doctrine 2 for your Domain Model
As an every day Doctrine2 user I did not expect to learn some much new things! Well done! Speaking skills were great and some humor too :)

From the Ground Up: Hands-on coding, deploying, and scaling with AWS
Nice talk! Since I played a little with AWS and composer the talk was easy to follow for me, but I think some people may have struggled with it. I liked the command line concept of your slides, didn't see that before. Overall the talk was very interesting, I really enjoyed it. Best talk of day 2 for me.

Mobile is huge in Japan
I was really shocked to hear that my job is going to disappear ;) The numbers where a real eye opener to me; mobile is really getting big. However I still think there will be backend devs for handling all the data and rendering the output. Good speaker, good keynote.

Hands on PHP memory usage
Learned a lot. Julien proves he knows everything about the topic. All tough it was more some form of an extented talk instead of a tutorial, I found it very interesting. A word of advice: make sure the attendees have the VM box on forehand. The wifi network is something you can't rely on. And thanks for the tip of the leak in the new relic stuff. That explains why my server every now and then needs a reboot because of no free mem.

Varnish workshop
Thumbs up for the workshop. I must admit I always enjoy your talks, and as so I did this tutorial. Kudo's for the preparation! Good exercises with a todo.txt so you don't miss a command from the presentation. And of course the vagrant box. I really learned a lot and I'm definitely gonna keep the VM for a while to play around,

High Performance Websites with Scalable Workers
One of the best talks of day 1 for me. Enjoyed the topic and the examples, all tough some where a bit hackish. But always cool to see some live action. Also well presented.

Fun with BIG Data with various databases
I've nothing to add to comments already here. The speaker has a lot of knowledge about the topic I guess, but it was hard to follow.

Getting your toolbox together
Probably my bad but I expected a bit more in depth information about the topic. We're already using vagrant (and Puppet instead of Chef) at our office, was hoping to see some more details and info on how you guys do it. Nevertheless a great talk for people new on this topic.

Introduction to Django
I consider myswelf as a python noob, but I could follow the talk without any problem. Django acts a lot like Symfony2. Also the Twig template engine is inspired by Django. Altough I'm not convinced to switch to Django yet, I certainly gonna give it a try. The talk itself was wel presented.

Nice talk, unfortunately most things weren't new for me (my bad ofcourse attending the wrong talk). However I enjoyed the live coding with vim (as a PHPStorm user).

Docker, contain him, he his fast !
Was really looking forward to this talk, but was a bit disappointed. The talk was difficult to follow because of the French-English. The speaker has a lot of knowledge of this particular topic, but failed a bit in delivering it to the attenders. Nevertheless I certainly gonna take a look at Docker. The Travis demo was cool enough.

Using Unicode with PHP
This was one of the talks I had no expectations about, but I really enjoyed it. Unicode seems like a boring topic, bit I wasn't bored at all during the talk. Learned a lot. Also thumbs up for the speaking skills.

O(ops), Authentication!
Had expected some more different examples (e.g. WSSE) but nonetheless the talk was interesting enough. Have been playing with FOSOAuthBundle in the past, but wasn't aware of the standalone OAuth component. Speaker skills and sheets were fine too.

Create your custom annotations in Symfony2
Leuk om te zien hoe sommige Annotations in Symfony "gehacked" zitten. Was nog nooit in het onderwerp gedoken, dus e.e.a. geleerd. Ook goed gepresenteerd.

Principles of PHP Package Design
Matthias heeft veel kennis van zaken van het onderwerp. Wel had ik het idee dat het vertelde meer van toepassing was op opensource packages dan eigen packages. Dat bleek ook wel uit de reacties van het publiek. Af en toe een beetje langdradig maar dat lag misschien ook aan het onderwerp.

Task Based UIs
Perhaps the title of this talk should be changed, since there were quite some people who didn't understand the real topic. Personally I'm very interested in all the DDD stuff happening in php lately so I enjoyed the talk. Content was good, speaker skills also good.

Scaling Applications with RabbitMQ
I'm already using RabbitMQ quite some time, so most of the things were familiar for me. It was very entertaining to see the autor of the Symfony2 bundle and php library in real life. Good speaker skills, some fun stuff, very well introduction into RabbitMq.

The Hardened Application: Testing Principles from OWASP
I expected a little more actual examples of things gone wrong and little less listings of different types of possible threads. Learned most of the questions and tools demonstrated at the end. Besides that I enjoyed the talk. Speaker does know what he is talking about.

Opening & Keynote; Talmudic Maxims to Maximize Your Growth as a Software Developer
I seeI forgot to rate the keynote, how could I? As a keynote should be: inspiring, motivating, stuff that makes you think. A lot of things already sounded familiar to me, but a lot of thins can also be improved. Our team already discussed some of the idea's of this talk, so mission succeeded I would say.

The Stateful ElePHPant
Great talk, we were happy to have you on our first meetup. I'm gonna try to find some negative spots in your talk, but first the good stuff: - funny intro with the game - a few jokes between the lines - did not panic when PhpStorm didn't cooperate anymore ;) - good speakers skills - well presented, learned a lot - really enjoyed the PhpStorm / live coding, learned some new shortcuts :) - not boring at all Things to improve: Perhaps for people who don't use Silex or Symfony the live coding can be hard to follow. If you're not familiar with the concepts like pimple, twig and routing it can be a bit overwhelming. Because you're coding so fast (switching a lot from files) I can image novice people have a hard time to keep up.

Talk: Object Invariants, Immutability & You: Making Objects Do Your Bidding
Good introduction into the DDD principles and I must say you delivered it well. I think the examples demonstrated clearly the advantages of using the approach you advocated. Perhaps the talk is a bit short, although not too short for a usergroup talk. I also loved the slides with the quotes :-)

Let's Write Some History!
As a Broadway user the talk was easy to follow and all concepts where very clear to me. For newcomers these topics can be quite hard to follow, but I think that's a problem which can't be solved in a one hour presentation ;-) As a matter of fact you did a great job fitting all these topics into a hour time slot. You also proofed you can handle some technical issues during the talk. It was nice to meet you in person and hope to see you again on a future BredaPHP meetup!

Composer The Right Way
Rafael did a great job with this talk. A lot of people new to the subject are having a hard time how to use composer correctly. He addresses all those issues in this talk in a very clear way. The cookbook he's writing is a good initiative from which a lot of developers could benefit. Also no negative feedback for the speaker skills. Well presented, speaks loud and clearly. And he's a nice person too. So that makes another 5 start rating I guess? :)

Frontin' like a back-er
Leerzame talk op een leuke manier gegeven. Zelf werk ik ook niet graag in de frontend. Onlangs wat met Angular gedaan, herkende de geschetste problematiek dan ook. Het hele Alt.js, ReactJs en Flux stuk zag er heel vet uit. Zeker iets om te gaan proberen. Laatste sheets was even lastig om te volgen wat nu wat was. Buiten dat geen negatieve punten.

MySQL-performance for developers
Tof dat je je eerste talk gegeven hebt. Het spreken ging goed, goed volgbaar en je kwam niet zenuwachtig over. Je liet blijken perfect op de hoogte te zijn van MySQL getuige de grote hoeveel informatie en weetjes die je in je talk verwerkt had. Vanwege de snelheid en grote hoeveelheid theorie was het af en toe lastig om alles goed te blijven volgen. Misschien zou het leuk zijn om ook echt een query to optimaliseren en het echte resultaat te zien in plaats van screenshots. Dan wordt het wat interactiever denk ik. Op naar AmsterdamPHP ;)
