I liked Beths drawn-from-experience approach, which makes it quite relatable. Involving the audience seemed to work well also.

The main reason its 4 instead of 5 stars is because i personally didn't feel i gained much new insights, even though im by no means a buff on the subject. Also, in regard to the amount of text on the slides i would say: less is more.

Btw: Get well! :)

I was expecting a talk about how to tie all those tools (phpunit, codesniffer, mess detector, phing, ... ) together, make a strategy for actual CI and how to implement it. Instead, it gave the building blocks with the solution still to be built.

Maybe I misread the introduction or was interpreting the title differently. It wasn't for me, but that isn't to say it was a bad talk. For someone unknown to those tools, it was a really good introduction.

I'm sorry but this talk was just bad. When your audience is talking about stuff you have never heard of, it's clear you know not enough about the subject.

I loved the experience based approach. This makes it very easy to identify with the subject.

I found it important it was about dealing with the methodic, not just about your preferred tools.

This was the best presentation of the day. It feels like there where only continuous integration tools names without the 'depth' of the tools. I think it's beter to highlight some of the tools rather than just naming them. Why? Because when you Google you got the same information and even more like the audience where talking about.

And two other deployment tools we use:

Last little note, it's too bad to hear you suffered from your throat. However candy in your month during the presentation was, as for me, not the best choice.

First and foremost, respect that you did present, even though you really didn't feel well.

Unfortunately it negatively affected your presentation pretty severely. As also mentioned by Jeffrey Cafferata, having candy in your mouth (even though it's to ease your throat) really is a no-go. The same goes for turning around while people are talking to you or asking questions.

As to the contents of the talk, I loved seeing the building blocks, as Mattias described earlier. An improvement of your talk could indeed be to show how they can be combined to a complete CI solution.
