Same Thing Happens Every Time.
Excellent talk! Your presentation style is very engaging, and really helped relate a common pattern in stories to how development projects and organizations work. I think this is why Agile development methodologies can be so successful, as it allows us to adapt to changes in requirements and schedule. I agree: Time is always the enemy.

From London to Chicago: A Conceptual Map for Unit Testing
Thank you so much Yitzchok for an incredible talk. I really like how you framed the issues of TDD, and linked it to better design. Your presentation style is excellent, and you promoted deeper understanding through the interaction you had with your audience with the discussion based talk. You have inspired me personally to investigate further the two schools (London/Chicago). I also appreciate your thoughts of starting with Classicist and getting on the road to aspire to be a Mockist. Very thought provoking! Thank you again for taking time out to share your wisdom with us here in Madison!

/Regex makes me want to (weep|give up|(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻)\.?/i
Awesome talk Brett. You took a difficult (and dare I say sometimes scary) topic, and broke it down into very practical examples, as well as talking about what can go wrong. Great pace and excellent coverage of pretty much all one would do with RegEx! I think it was great you even took the time to talk about matching groups and making it easy to understand. - Ken

What Raising 3 Kids Taught Me About Working with Users
Great talk Derek. I really like the similarities and application for the lessons you learned parenting and how it applies to project management. I also liked some of the images you used. I would consider creating slides for competing images from what you learned parenting and an image to contrast it with for project management. Great talk!
