Very interesting topic, but in the end I found it a little bit hard to follow because of the lack of code examples. The presentation given the saturday after really cleared a lot up for me and it would have been a big help if that was integrated with the course or something.
The point about making small changes was made pretty quickly and the live coding after that seemed unnecessary. This made the presentation as a whole slow and dry. A bit more focus on the patterns themselves could have made it more interesting.
Nice to have learned a bit about queues, the different types and how they work. It might have been a bit too shallow for me, but maybe 45 minutes is too short for that. Enthutiastic speaker, but the pronunciation made it a little bit hard to follow at some points
Good topic, but the presentation was unfocused and quite boring. Way too much time was spend explaining code, which a room full of developers already understood and also didn't really had anything to do with the topic itself.
Only the part explaining web sockets caught my attention...
Try to focus more on the subject itself and less on other matters (or even leave that stuff out!).
A lot of great information in here. Good to see that the most important tool in agile, the retrospective, is finally getting the attention it deserves. The pace and humor kept me interested all the way to the end.
