Quality... french style
Most entertaining info-sales-pitch I've heard in memory. Couldn't even wait for the talk to end before signing up for the beta.

Enjoyed this talk, but wish I had had access to the slide deck to ask questions from, and wish the talk had been a bit longer.

The Code Manifesto: Empowering Our Community
This is a very difficult topic to tackle because there's so much to it and because people take it so personally. This presentation did a great job of covering a lot of the breadth of issues that come into play (including a lot of the less obvious contributing factors), the various ways we can contribute as individuals to solving this wide reaching social problem, and why we should care. Bonus points for "Worth It" scale. This talk may have made me a better person. Recommend.

Testing Spaghetti
I loved this talk (speaker is super engaging and the topic is very interesting to me), but I do wish there had been a bit less time defining terms and a bit more time breaking down spaghetti code into testable code :)

Dependency Injection, Dependency Inversion, and You
Great talk, Fabulous Speaker! Helped me clarify what I do with the vocab I hear thrown around really well (thank you!) as well as the why so I can use the concepts more effectively in future (double thank you!). Think the speaker may have maxed out the amount of awesome they can deliver from behind a podium (impressed), stepping out from time to time might crank it up to 11.

Introduction to OAuth
Really impressed as the the breadth and depth of content delivered. Matt blossomed as a speaker over the course of the talk, relaxing and having us all laughing by the end. Nit picks: wanted the hat taken off or flipped around so shining face was not shadowed; wanted speaker to have more mic experience (lay it flat and closer to neck); Looking forward to more in future!

Writing Code That Lasts
This talk was too much fun :) The visuals were a delightful backdrop to a seriously engaging and entertaining delivery! Absorbed some great perspective on creating code with a useful long view, and took a pile of notes on how to be awesome speaker.

Advanced Git Skills
Lorna Jane is an amazing presenter! She's fun and funny and explains complex concepts in really simple, easy to understand terms! I came to better understand the git commands I was already using and got to learn new tricks as well!

Building Web Service Clients With Guzzle
Awesome job, Jeremy! I love that you included a game activity (with prizes!), and I super dig the sample project! Not only did it really help me follow along with the content, but it also means I have it now to reference in the future! Minor note: I wish you'd spent a touch more time on the error codes before the game so I could have entered it with a bit more false confidence ;)

Going Pro - The Joint
I love sitting in on a keynote from Cal. No matter the size of the room and crowd, he covers topics with an honesty, humor, and vulnerability that transforms an anonymous crowd into a comfortable, giggly, family sit down. Thanks for kicking in that community feel, Cal.

The Neuroscience & Psychology Behind Open Source Communities
really enjoyed the overview. elizabeth is an expert speaker, seems passionate about this important topic, and the slides were both really well done and really helped the speaker convey a lot of information in the finite time allotted. Looking forward to the next talk in this series ;)

Opening Keynote
I think the mentoring advice included in this talk was really valuable, and very much appreciate the positive and inclusive tone as well as the very approachable call to action. While the speaker seemed impressively comfortable delivering the talk, there were times when I had a difficult time hearing them. There were also a few points where I found the slides distracting because the talk seemed to have moved well past the topic highlighted by the slide on display.

APIs to your brain
This is a favorite topic, and I was delighted to see it featured and covered well. The overview of core concepts was great, and the speaker also did an exceptional job inviting people to get involved and making that idea approachable. Very excited to see the new open source kits become available this summer! Thank you for engaging us with this amazing field of study and experimentation!
