    We could have gone on for another 3 hours on this, though I am sure it only interests a niche audience. Good stuff! http://www.rarst.net/script/wordpress-core-load/ was worth the price of admission.

    I really liked Topher's talk on theory, about separating functionality from design. He then gave specific recommendations for where to put code. Brian's talk was mostly over my head because I haven't done much with hooks and filters, but it helped me better understand them.
