Magenta is ridiculously large and complex, attempting to condense it to a one-hour summary is folly. Recommend taking something interesting used by M2 and presenting that, referring to M2 as the real-world example.

Useful talk! I think it had great breadth and resources, covering important topics. It was really helpful to get all of Magento 2 condensed into a no-nonsense technical overview. I also appreciated the "pitch" for being part of the Magento community and explaining how to get involved.

I don't feel like it covered the "how" of Magento 2 very well, e.g. setup and what to know to get started--examples would be good here. I think this is still a good talk though, so maybe just "repackage" it as a "What you need to know about Magento 2" talk rather than a "Here's how you get started with Magento 2".
