Great talk, really inspiring. Memi was forced to skip some sections because he was running out of time. The topic is really interesting and ihmo it would have fit well in a big talk (1,5 h)

great talk, very inspirational - loved the fact that memi combined "on the edge" agile practices with real world experiences / case studies

4 out of 5 because of the time thing - the presentation would have better fit a 1h30' slot

This talk is about something that I live everyday, it's a hard challenge, and Meme has been able to catch the point and give a brilliant overview about UCD and Agile. Thank you!
