The New Revolution
A great way to start the conference - looking back on what brought us to here and highlighting how we are the people shaping the future - inspiring and thought provoking - perfect set-up for the subsequent talks.

Introduction to functional programming with Phunkie
I probably didn't have enough pre-knowlege to truly take the most from this talk, but still good to learn new things!

Long running PHP processes
I suspect this talk could do with having a little more time to go into the discussion areas a bit more.

From Hamfist to Hamcrest: more expressive tests in PHP
Good content and style although shame about the slide contrast etc. I'm a PhpSpec user and hadn't heard of Hamcrest. Not sure if the matchers can be used with PhpSpec; something to find out I guess!

Managing dependencies is more than running "composer update"
Really well structured talk covering key areas of risk and approaches to reducing this in relation to managing dependencies. Learnt a few new composer commands too, well worth attending!

Driving Design through Examples
Great presentation and really good example when discussing... examples! Really want to learn more about Behat and the layers at which it can be used in the future (appreciate that this was not the focus of this talk hence speedy progress through this area).

Don't work for PHPCS, make PHPCS work for you
Had no idea what phpcs was before the talk and now I do... Look forward to giving it a go on the work codebase sometime soon!

Don’t believe everything you learn
This talk was not good... This talk was brilliant!!! 30th February 1712.... Sweden, what were you thinking?!? Had the whole place laughing and engaging whilst at the same time the underlying message was there - assume nothing in programming!

5 Features of a Good API
Fantastic talk; well delivered, well structured, and really good timing for a project we are currently working on in the office. Writing this on Monday and have already used a few things learned from this talk on said project today.

Status Change: Now Using Event Sourcing
This talk was definitely worth going to and the example used was a good one. Appreciate that there was a lot to cover but for me, I don't think enough time was spent looking at the code to connect the points together enough, that part felt a bit rushed.

Ethical Engineering
I'm afraid I found this talk way too dark and not quite the mood I'd hoped to be walking away from the conference in. Yes, it was thought provoking but too much time spent talking about dark things. At the end the room felt too reflective and almost sombre. "That's it, you can all leave now". Yes, I can absolutely see the points that this talk was making and there's definitely a place for it; but just not sure it should have been the final note of the conference. The opening keynote on Friday by contrast was uplifting and inspiring, this one not so much.
