Rating: 4 of 5

When stranded in a hostile situation, it’s important to prioritise your needs. Do you seek out shelter, sustenance, or fire first?

This is the challenge a developer can find themselves facing in a new company - when the glow of the successful interview process fades and is replaced with harsh reality, how do you endure?

In this talk we’ll see what’s really important for survival, what a developer’s hierarchy of needs looks like, and how they can go about making a development organisation a hospitable place to live.

Who are you?

Difficult to know what point we were on, or if it was a subpoint.

Very interesting and good talk, but it was missing "something" although I can't put my finger on it, that prevented it from being 5/5

Really interesting comparison to Maslow's pyramid.

Good use of some real life examples but a little unsure of the points

Very good talk, apt comparison and helped give me a grounding in where our team is, where it could be and where it is (thankfully) not.

Good talk, well delivered, and with thought-provoking points. I really like the use of Maslow's pyramid of needs and the practical application of them. As with a lot of conference talks, it sometimes felt aimed at very large organisations more than (much!) smaller agencies or freelancers.

Not what I was expecting... Was more expecting a how to debug talk from the title... but a good talk no the less.
I see all parts of his talk in our work.
Sometimes were just in the lets get this stuff done mode.

A difficult topic to tackle, but relevant to everyone in the industry. Good structure to the slides deck, aptly built around a Maslow pyramid parallel. Clearly a knowledgeable speaker too, but the pace of it was lacking either a bit of rhythm or a bit of "zing" and passion. A worthwhile presentation though, and I think one of the best at the conference.

Interesting, but it felt a little sluggish at points. Some good topics raised though, particularly around getting the dev team process spot on and expanding that to the surrounding teams; I really liked this approach.
