Terry Chay once had the status in the PHP community of delivering the keynotes that you just had to see. It has taken a while but there's a keynote that has this same 'must see' status. If Ross is not doing this keynote at a conference you visit, visit a conference where he does.

I don't know where you got the idea for this talk from, but keep on going! It is a great talk, with some very useful advices coming from a helpful and skilled adviser.

I totally agree with all the chaps here: this talk is a must-see!

Excellent key note!
The personal approach, stories and lessons learnt really make this exceptional.

You almost sounded like a wise old man... pretty darn good for a mere 29-year old ;-)

A strong and gifted speaker! Giving and taking advice is a skill as well. The reasons for taking and giving advice came across very well. However you're such a powerfull and authoritarian presence that I didn't even question or analysed your story at the time; it all made sense.

In hindsight I missed how to handle people that do not want, or recognize your advice. and how do you recognize and filter advice that might not be favourable to your case. How do you know where to put them on the graph you showed?

I only have to thank you for this talk, was truly awesome and inspirational. Everybody was amazed, you could tell by people's faces.
This is a talk every developer should see. I would go further and say that this is material for TED Talks, seriously!

Wow... I was really moved by this keynote.

There's no way it could have been done in a better way. I was just amazed at everything that was said and the message that came trough from this very wise "old" man. The way he shares his story and the way he keeps this red thread in his talks makes me so inspired, and I believe that this talk, if ever so slightly changed me as a person: To the better.

Thank you Ross.

Best. Talk. Ever.
I remember the talk that Kevlin Henney gave at the DPC13 which was really inspiring as well, but you really surpassed that in every possible way.
If I should recommend any talk that was given at the ccxx13, then it would most definitely be this one!

Great keynote, great slides, great advice. Even slightly emotional with the hat!
Truly inspiring
