Nice overview of how you ended up building your own deployment tool and what sets it apart from others. Although some of it was now prompted by questions during/after the talk: maybe those are good points to include in your talk preemptively! Since we worked together during the speaker workshop, I couldn't help but notice some hand fidgeting and laptop glancing: maybe a presentation clicker would help there? But otherwise your delivery was calm and collected, you knew your stuff, so good job!
Great talk on fostering more communication and inclusion of diverse roles within your development team, including customer feedback. During your talk I felt you had even more to share, which proved to be true when we talked lots more afterwards. I think the talk would shine even more if you include some of that too, but it was great nonetheless!
Great overview of password best practices, concise and practical. Seeing password strength illustrated by entropy scores was a really good way to make this issue more tangible! While I definitely recommend this as a full talk for future tech conferences, I think you'd also find a good audience in non-tech events where people are even less aware of these rules. Please keep spreading the word!
While I knew of the FIG, I wasn't aware of the full story behind it: you gave an excellent overview of its history and current events. It was also very enlightening to hear you explain what the newly passed FIG 3.0 structure is going to be like, including all the reasoning behind the changes. Plus your excitement for this milestone was just incredibly infectious, great job!
Excellent talk, especially for your first time presenting! As a newbie coder, it was incredibly heartening for me to hear that people who have already been in the field for so long also deal with Imposter Syndrome - and most importantly, that it can be beat! You gave some great practical advice for how to handle it, definitely considering some now (like blogging). Thank you for sharing your experiences so openly and helping others become more aware of both this phenomenon AND ways to handle it!
This was a wonderful companion talk to the previous topic (in the same track) of Imposter Syndrome, since you gave very practical advice how to build up the supportive environment that enables (yes, love that word!) individual developers to grow and become their very best. I do agree with other comments that the talk would be even better if you include tips on how to convince your manager/etc that it's a good investment. However, that was the only thing I was missing and you seemed to know the answer in Q&A: it really wouldn't take much to add and make this talk a full 5 stars for the next round!
This was a fan-tas-tic talk! I always enjoy hearing about how people end up where they are now, and you really went all out on that - all to build up to this great underlying message of how open source literally changes lives like your own. What I loved most about this entire talk is how wholly genuine you are throughout. Even when you are poking fun at yourself, but especially when you lay bare your most vulnerable experiences (like your OSMI reaction). You have such passion and such presence, kudos to the PHPNW16 crew for giving you the opportunity to shine there as the closing keynote! Bravo!
