Keynote at SunshinePHP 2017 (English - US)

Rating: 5 of 5

Have you ever looked at a project and the first two to three lines are filled up with little graphics telling you the various stats of the project? The "badges" have become popular because they are a quick way for developers to communicate information about the project.

I want badges for my life. When people look at my life's, what badges do I want them to see? What badges do they really see? What can I do to control this?

Join me as we jog through the list of Life Badges I want people to see on my life's repo. Along the way, we'll pause briefly to examine what each badge means, and what color is appropriate. As we examine, you may be surprised at what you learn about me...and about your own life badges.

First time seeing Cal give a talk in person. Found him really engaging on the stage and so easy to listen along to. The content was brilliant, it was clearly written to inspire us all to be better developers and by extension better people. Highly recommend people see this talk if they get the chance.

A great talk on how to look at your life, accomplishments and mentality via badges. And how would you want the badges to appear on your headstone.

This was interesting to ponder, and you did a good job at adding humor. I will definitely have to think about this for myself. Also, you made me aware that I have fallen out of being more active in online development communities. You have inspired me to start being more proactive in that matter again. Thanks Cal.

Cal is always a great speaker no matter how introverted he thinks he is.

What a great opening keynote. I really enjoyed it. The part I caught anyways. Lost track of time while chatting up the Sponsors, so was about 10min late :( It was certainly inspirational and set the tone for the rest of the conference.

Great talk as usual. I really appreciate how Cal said it's up to the individual to decide what better is and to work toward that.

Not sure this was applicable to the conference. I came here to be a better developer, not a better person. I go other places for that. :)

The speaker seemed comfortable and natural. He did a good job as a speaker and as a presenter and seems like a neat person. I didn't find the concept of badges very relatable. It is not at all a motivation for me. I'm sure it was helpful to many though.
