Talk at PHPSW: Coding Horror Stories, October 2018 (English - UK)

Rating: 5 of 5

A light-hearted poke at the recruitment industry with a specific focus on the development market in Bristol. Maybe one or two golden nuggets of guidance for anyone about to step into the recruitment void.

I really like this talk and this is something I have heard many times from friends of mine in the industry. Very well presented with humour in all the right places. Amazing... Thank you.

Another fresh approach to the brief, I love it.
Hilarious, relatable start! I think you really played to your audience. Ehem, next time take a screenshot of the search box, photos of screens don't come out well :)
You spoke at a good volume! I like your use of narrative. You're a good public speaker.
Also, as a recruiter at a code meetup talking about how much recruiters can suck... Ballsy. I like it.
Thank you for being so nice about developers at the end, too.

A very entertaining talk! Some great stories, except now I know they're true they suddenly became terrifying :\
It's nice to know there are recruiters out there that don't follow the stereotype :)

Well delivered with clear speech and well paced. Great stories that don't surprise me but we're told very well. Only improvement would be to memorise your talk and not use notes. Understanding for a first talk though

Fantastic talk by Nathaniel. I know he was very nervous, but it worked really well. Couple of tweaks needed for the screenshots (but I think you noticed that too).

Good job (still hate recruiters ?)

Great talk, terrifying stories and good advice to avoid them. Could have done with a bit more prep on the notes, but a very good talk

Good pacing, good use of images and good stories.
Nice work taking on the challenge of a recruiter talk! Confidence will definitely help make it smoother.

What a bunch of ... these recruiters are but not this one.. A great talk with some useful tips to protect devs from the BS of the recruitment sales process.
A really engaging talk, and a hilight of my evening
