Introduction to TypeScript
Useful. Technical difficulties made the slides hard to read, but that's not your fault.

CSS Flexbox Fundamentals
Everyone there was already convinced of the value of modern standards, progress, css, and flexbox. You could have summed the first 20 minutes up in less than a minute. I didn't stay any longer, but I saw no CSS code while I was there.

How to Gamify Technical Debt and Introduce Change Successfully
Excellent that you started with how motivation works. The approach worries me slightly--you need a very trusting environment for leader boards and other similar metrics to work without people misusing such metrics. Never addressed how to approach technical debt from a dev perspective. Still, it was well organized and well delivered.

Intro to React
Show the code larger and black on white. It's hard to see in back. Ask if we can see it in back, more than once.

The Value of Old Programmers
As a kid level engineer this was useful. It could be presented in half the time, and in a more positive tone. It's be interested in another talk from you on "learning from developers above and below your own experience level" or something along those lines. Or, "how to seem young as you gain experience in software development". Or a combination of the two. Something with a few more action points and take-aways *throughout* the talk. Still, it was a good talk and I got some good perspective from it, on how experience can come across in good and bad situations. How to interpret tempered enthusiasm and such. That's helpful.

The Value of Old Programmers
Revision : As a mid level engineer this was useful. It could be presented in half the time, and in a more positive and action oriented tone. I would be interested in another talk from you on "learning from developers above and below your own experience level" or, "how to seem young as you gain experience in software development". Or a combination of the two. Something with a few more action points and take-aways *throughout* the talk. It was a good talk and I got some good perspective from it, like how experience can come across in attitudes in good and bad situations, detecting bogus company projections, how to interpret tempered enthusiasm for new languages and features, and such. That's helpful.
