Community works for business too!
I can understand the comments here, but I'll be playing this talk to my $boss when it becomes available and trying to persuade him to get involved. Every developer in attendance should be able to use this talk to help persuade their manager to let them submit PR/patches during working hours.

Uncon: ZF2 for ZF1 devs
Thanks for the feedback, I feel like it''s only fair to point out the good and the bad, but maybe I should tone down the negatives slightly!

Beer tasting
Beers were excellent, I felt the tasting went on a little too long and the presenter spoke a little too much. To be fair, he expected to present in Dutch and actually spoke in English so he probably took longer to explain himself.

RESTful Services Made Easy with ZF2
Really enjoyed, the low numbers actually helped make the tutorial feel very inclusive.
Rating: 3 of 5 
(15.Sep.2013)
Opening
I rate 5 stars for the movie, but only 1 star for the speaking as I couldn't understand it. I would only suggest that if you want to have the opening in Dutch (and why shouldn't you, it's a Dutch conference!), you should in English tell attendees where the toilets are, where the tracks are etc.

Debugging HTTP
Perfectly delivered (as usual), and very interesting content. Even though I new about most of the tools, walking away with one new tool to try is a huge win.
Rating: 4 of 5 
(15.Sep.2013)
MySQL EXPLAIN Explained
I enjoyed the talk and took away some useful ideas. To be constructive, using a presentation program (even Google Slides) means that the program will resize the content for the screen it's displayed on, which is a useful tip when working with projectors. I also felt that you spoke quite quickly which made you difficult to understand at some points. Kudos to you for a very good presentation dispute technical difficulties.

Testing with Codeception
Beautifully delivered and an amazing new tool for me to try out when I get back to work. What more can I say. As a note to conference organisers, this would be much better as a tutorial as 40-50 minutes is too short for such a cool topic.

'ProTalking' your way into Open Source
I genuinely feel that any conference targeted at the newer or lower level developers should make this talk mandatory. Even given the high number of OS contributors I really enjoyed hearing other people's experiences of contributing. Gread job Geekie ;)

Redis For The Everyday Developer
What can I say? Are you sure, Ross, that you only got the call to give this talk 2 days before? We already use Redis as a key/value store, but now I realise we should be using it for so much more. The content was excellently structured and perfectly delivered. I laughed out loud a lot. The only thing better than this talk is tentacle porn.

Community works for business too
Second time I've seen this and just as good as the first. Perfect for unconf as it prompted discussion that was better suited to the informal environment.

The Future of PHP in Enterprise Environments
Very disappointing, rather weak, no disagreements at all (which was a little disappointing). It came across more as mutual back slapping than an actual keynote.

When dynamic becomes static: the next step in web caching techniques
Really really interesting, I'd love to start using these techniques now. I should take a star off for the disappointment when I found out that the SCL is not available yet, but I won't.

The Evolution of DevOps
Davey is a compelling and interesting speaker, and hearing his expert opinions on a subject he obviously knows a lot about was really informative. I only have to apologise to Davey for having to leave for a few minutes half way through to take an emergency call - Sorry Davey!

Zend Framework 3 Sneak peak: routing
I love it when an unconf talk becomes more of a discussion than a talk, and this was one of those times. Could have been an intsy wintsy bit more prepared (but I guess Ben was too busy actually writing the router!)

An inspiring and motivational talk, Liz delivered it incredibly well. My interested in mentoring and being mentored is renewed. Thanks.

PHP Performance: Under The Hood
I agree with Evan who stole my verbal remarks and posted them as his own. I would suggest re-titling as realistically there was not so much performance ideas, as an understanding of what happens between writing your text file and the Zend Engine coming into play. Even so, it was interesting and entertaining.

PHP At The Firehose Scale
Shamefully I actually thought that a firehose was something else, but I really enjoyed seeing that PHP can be used at the firehose scale.

PHP 5.NEXT: The New Bits
Very enjoyable and well written given the fact that Davey must have submitted before 5.6 features were released. Some features look really interesting (the debug magic method and variadics), and discussion on HHVM is always interesting.

Vagrant Provisioners in a Nutshell
I enjoyed the talk and learned a lot, my only minor complaint was that it was a touch light on content - there was time to go into a little more depth (maybe an example of the same installer script for each provisioner?)

KEYNOTE: Getting artistic with code
Unbelievable. I've said before I think a keynote should be entertaining, inspiring or both. This was definitely both. Seb has a really natural informal speaking style which shows me just how far I have to go in my own speaking career.

Open Source, Love, and Social Responsibility
TIP TOP. You are a brave man Davey but it definitely paid off this time. Very interesting and inspiring talk and I think 30 minutes is a better length for a keynote than an hour. One minor gripe, it was difficult to understand Davey at some points, wether this is because of the audio equipment or because you spoke a little quickly at some points I'm not sure. It's not enough to lose a thumbs up over but just something I think you should be aware of. Loved it.

Command Bus to Awesome Town
Every time I think I'm making progress in my own speaking style, I watch Ross speak and get reminded how far I have to go. A beautifully written and delivered talk that was both informative and entertaining. Really helped me to understand what problems a command bus solves, why and how to use one and the patterns involved. It's at times like this I wish I could give more than 5 thumbs up.

Teaming up Backbone.js and the new WordPress API
I enjoyed the talk a lot, it's definitely made me think about using Wordpress as the backend for a side project I'm working on. I wasn't expecting the Titanium stuff but that's my own fault for not reading the abstract.

Generated Power: PHP 5.5 Generators

Secure your web application with two-factor authentication
I very much enjoyed the talk, Rob delivered with his practiced ease as usual. Upsides include I actually found out how to generate cryptographically secure 6 digit "random" numbers, which was a bonus and I definitely have enough to get add 2FA to any sites I need to. The only negative was maybe I would have like a little more depth in places, it felt pretty lightweight, but it's hard to pin down exactly why. Overall definitely worth attending, thanks Rob.

Got 15 minutes? Then give something back!
I struggled to get into the talk, but judging by the other comments that reflects more on me than on the speaker. If I can give constructive criticism, Liam spoke a little quick in places that left me (even as a native English speaker) struggling to work out what was being said. I also felt that the content was a tiny bit preachy, and didn't push the benefits to the contributor of contributing back to OS. These are small complaints in a well delivered talk however.

A World Without PHP
I really enjoyed this talk. Ben has natural charisma that makes him amusing and entertaining on stage, and the ideas he spoke about were very interesting. I think the talk lost its way a little at one point (maybe with the interaction with friends off stage?), but overall it was funny and enjoyable. Thanks Ben.

Write more expressive tests with Hamcrest
Agree with James - the content was great but needs a little more polished delivery. My advice would be to buy a "clicker" to be able to advance your slides without using the computer; this made it much easier for me personally to move away from the computer and become more natural. I would happily sit through the same talk in a full length slot and intend checking out Hamcrest today. Thanks Gareth.

PHP Storm’s refactoring features
Thanks Tobias, I have nothing to add that hasn't already been covered. An interesting point when you are demoing is to use the presentation assistant plugin (https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/7345). It shows your key combos on screen when you press them. It can make your IDE laggy for the first 30 seconds or so, it's worth starting the IDE before you start actually demoing. I'm not sure if there are bugs in refactoring, I'll look into that today, but you handled the problems well.

Unit Testing by Example
Great talk, suggest real and approachable ways to start working towards TDD rather than the typical way of saying "just do it". Highly recommend.
