Really good talk, great speaker.

Only reason why I havent given 5*, I would like to hear this talk with more of a personal touch (like problems when you picked name that android project uses and get lots of issues reported..), then just list of things where most of them feel obvious and are actually listed on site.

I think that the talk didn't add anyhting more than what you can easily find online: overall those were pretty much standard practices (except maybe for Scrutinizer). By the way, the talk was easy to follow and well explained.

@Luca Gallinari Thanks for the honest feedback. Yes, it's very much a beginner talk, which isn't necessarily obvious from the name or abstract. This talk was also a shorten down version of a 1 hour talk, and I think some of the more interesting pieces got lost in the process.
