Great talk which raises good issues. Interesting to get an insight into open source from a seasoned open source developer

Perfectly balanced take-home messages with cautionary tales and a healthy dose of humour and wit, spot on.

It's always fun to see you speak: I really like your loose and nonchalant style of speaking. I heard some funny an great stories. I'm hoping that some people will take the jump into creating open source software after hearing this talk.

Another great keynote, it was interesting to see the hard challenges that you face as a large project runner. It was interesting to get the diplomatic tips and how to keep people engaged with the project, and how that fits in with the wider conversation we're having in the community about what constitutes acceptable behaviour.

My only criticism is that it felt like there wasn't a real structure to the talk, it felt more like a stream of consciousness list, sometimes I think that works really well, this time I feel it worked less well.

Really great insight into the maintenance of open source projects - brought up some things I had never before considered, and I will definitely rethink my interaction with OSS maintainers in the future! Some really funny moments too, so a nice talk to end the day on. Thank you.

Jordi is an incredibly engaging speaker and this talk was a highly interesting window into the maintenance of some very high profile OS projects.

Very, very entertaining. Was fascinating to see the open source world from the other side of the fence.

Funny and informative, and another motivation and reminder to contribute to Open Source in one way or another

(p.s. I'm still laughing about the composer logo bug report)

Maintainers are people too, and Jordi's talk really got into the detail of what it means the be a project maintainer, what they have to put up with, and thus what we can do as project 'users' to make the whole Open Source community better. Very entertaining talk well delivered.

Great talk, made me think a lot about how easy it is to download something, use it and forget about what's going on behind the scenes. Tonight I answered my first question on Stackoverflow. Thank you for your great job and for the talk, you've been an inspiration!

Interesting to hear from a maintainer of a big public project about the challenges and some of the total f'wits that exist in the world.

Although you tried to provide structure through the use of the 'topics' I felt that several of them were quite overlapping which meant that the talk lacked cohesion to me.

I liked the slides, and examples of personal experiences. Thanks for all the work you have done for the community! I learnt that it's hard to balance people's expectations, maintain highly used projects and not burn out. Next time I find an issue in a third party code base I will try to be more respectful of everything that maintainer has done, or better yet offer to help if I can!

Great honest review on being a maintainer of an open souce project.

It was interesting to hear how it effected you personally and your initial thoughts on situations and actually what happened.

Really enjoyed the actionable points at the end of the talk which were any open source project would welcome.

It was very Jordi, like you were having a conversation at the pub with him. Sometimes spoke a little too fast with the accent which made it a little unclear was what being said, but overall lots of thumbs up.

Jordi had me chuckling and sharing his pain throughout this talk. I'm not sure I could have been as calm as he was given some of the comments he mentioned. The talk also inspired me to contribute more on Github. It's been on the to do list for far too long.

Made me feel guilty about sometimes submitting time-wasting issues, and not thinking about the people behind the code! An eye opening talk, well presented. And thank you for Composer :)

Fantastic talk from Jordi as always. You can tell that the guy has great passion for what he does and this comes across in all his talks. This one was no different and gave a great insight into life as an OS developer, whats involved behind the scenes and there was humour brought in as well which always goes down well.
