Seems like every conference has a opening (or closing) keynote about the community. I do agree with the message, but it doesn't teach me anything anymore. It would be nice to see something else for a change.
The presentation of this topic was very good, though. Brave to talk about his recently deceased dad.
Micheal made it so easy to learn, that I wonder if I needed a tutorial for this.
Maybe sending a little tutorial up front people can do by themselves and make the tutorial more difficult is an option?
Didn't need any checkpoints, but liked the idea very much.
Sounded a bit like a commercial sometimes. Was fun to see how data is being analysed, but the talk also told us that you will need a data scientist to do this properly. So I wonder about the use of this talk...
