The talk was interesting, but unfortunately there were a few issues that obscured the message a bit. I'll try to give some feedback:

The Good:

- Massimiliano is very knowledgeable and obviously knows what he is talking about.
- Meta-programming! Lisp!
- Live code transformation!
- MetaScript, new language to try out!
- Good delivery.

The bad:

- Live coding didn't work
- Code a bit too small on screen, hard to read
- Pretty heavy stuff for a ~1hr morning keynote :)
- Author assumed audience was familiar with deep PL concepts
- Few actionable stuff after the talk for a developer that wants to start with macro programming, except perhaps go and check out the Github repository.

All in all, an interesting talk with a huge potential. Can't wait to see its next iteration! In the meantime, I'll give MetaScript a try.

Well presented, nice talk and overall i really enjoyed it. Topic is the strongest argument for a high score: Metaprogramming and all the concepts behind it is probably the most innovative idea presented during the whole conference.

What could go better: Mainly Live coding and Small font.

The font size on the slides was quite small but the talk was great!

worst opening keynote ever for an event. keynotes should be about engagement, not advanced technical stuff like this.

In talk arguments where good, they bring a lot of discussion in the arena and that's is more then valuable.

I guess there could have a been a working practical example to really show people what can be achieved with meta programming

The topic was quite interesting, but I think it's difficult to use metascripting in reality, 'cause it's another thing to add in a stack pretty full already (php, js, html, css, etc.)
Anyway Massimiliano was clear I felt it passionate about the topic.
Slides font and color were hard to read (and I was in third row).

I would say that the subject is very interesting, and the speaker is extremely passionate and knowledgeable.
I've given it 3 stars for 3 main reasons:
- this should not be an opening key note talk, it is way too technical and low-level for being this early
- live demo is a huge gain, but if it fails, it's a huge fail so there should always be a fallback plan if it's so inherently important to the talk.
- Aside from the talk of the language, i would have loved to hear a more general talk about metaprogramming, when it's useful, when it's good, bad, etc. again, due to the early time in the morning, i think that a more high level talk would've made much more sense.

Interesting subject, too bad lighttable decided to crapout and make a full demo effect :).
Subject is interesting, speaker had the knowlegde, but it may have been a bit too technical for most people.
