Pipeline Architectures
Well presented talk and knowledgeable speaker. I did have trouble keeping my full attention on the talk at times due to 'flow', although most of it was probably out of the speaker's control for lack of airconditioning and mic.

Better Late Than Never: Scalar Type Hints in PHP 7
Nice background on php internals and type declarations (hints). Try to avoid hitting the mic next time. All in all, very entertaining and enlightening talk.

Dotting your i's and crossing your t's - How to Make Good Code Great
Good talk on technical dept and how to avoid it. While the solutions given were fairly basic, i think that shows it shows that there really is no excuse to not ensure we manage our dept. Personally, i would have liked some more focus on the 'how do i get my manager onboard' and less on the specific tools (although a 'here's a list of tools to google' is useful)

Driving Design through Examples
Note: I was running low on energy while attending this talk, so i might have missed something. Good talk, definitely something to look into to actually start using. I did feel like trying to cram the basic principles of both BDD and DDD into a 50 min slot was a bit too much, but maybe that's just because my prior knowledge of the two wasn't up to par.

You Attended Talk: an introduction to event sourcing
For an introductory talk it might have been a little code heavy. Especially with it's specific broadway implementations. This meant that while looking at the code, you had to figure out how broadway did things and understand what message the speaker was trying to convey, sometimes in a very short timespan. I did think the speaker as very knowledgeable about the subject and that showed in the talk.

Getting things done with ElasticSearch
Great talk. Good flow, nice pace. Very solid introduction to elasticsearch. To bad it started slightly late because of technical issues as this meant the talk was cut slightly short. I don't have i feeling i missed anything, and i guess i can google the rest. On a completely unrelated side note, i noticed you have an 'Flemish' version on speaker deck, would have loved to see you do that one ;)

phpBB, Meet Symfony
Interesting to see how a project like phpBB is using Symfony to slowly migrate piece by piece to a better code base. As my opinion of phpBB was mostly based on 2.x and it's security related issues, it nice to see a case study on how such a large codebase can by migrated to something better. 4-thumbs as i do feel the prep could have slightly better (a review of the slides) and would have liked a more uniform way of presenting the code instead of screenshots cropped in different ways.

Scaling & Managing Asynchronous Workers (and staying sane!)
Very good talk. Entertaining, informative with very clear code examples how (not) to do it. Definitely one of my favorite talks from this conference.

“Writing code that lasts” … or writing code you won’t hate tomorrow.
5/5. I really enjoyed your talk. I'll be trying out those rules for the next month and hopefully after :) If i had to give 1 point of critique, i guess it would have been nice to have some code examples sometimes, but i understand that that might not be possible due to time constraints.

Five Weird Tricks to Become a Better Developer
5/5 Loved it. It's good to remind ourselves that being a good (better) developer is not just about technical skills.

Encryption, authentication and data integrity in PHP
Speaker clearly knows his what he is talking about. I thought the level of detail was just right.

The quest for global design principles
Easily one of my favorite speakers. Always engaging and left with a feeling i learned something new. Moved your book to the top of my reading list.

SOLID Refactoring
Good tutorial about SOLID Refactoring. Excellent talk for beginners. -1 as the talk was marked as Intermediate while it was (at least from my perspective) aimed at beginners. For an Intermediate talk i expected some more depth.

Service discovery and configuration provisioning
Some of the techniques shown were real eye openers for me, especially how you can slowly migrate between solutions with changing configs in real time. For others, i'm not convinced, but then i don't do a whole lot of 'ops' things. Would have liked it better if there was slightly less focus on consul and more on the concept itself. All in all, good talk.

Level up your team
Good talk. Left the room inspired to 'level up my team'. Will definitely start using some more of the concepts talked about. Nice to hear my team is already on the right track and get some ideas for improvement. Depending on the audience (management vs developers), maybe emphasise the fact that is should be a two way street. While this was mentioned, some more depth there would have been nice. For example, as a 'just a developer' i would have liked some tips on how to instigate the changes necessary from both management, fellow team members and myself so that the change is lasting. Or how to ensure everyone is (and stays) on board.
