Simple, basic but still a really enjoyable talk!

Covered a lot of stuff (maybe too much to go into detail of anything) but came in under time.

However what we got was a good overview of end-to-end testing using Behat, delivered well.

I'm sorry to post that comment as I'm sure the speaker can do much more than that. But this time she didn't well. She had 1 hour and used ~30 minutes. The tone of the voice was often the same and many in the room heard the fear/anxiety she had. Many times I had the impression she was going to cry. Sometimes it happens, and it's fine. Speakers have a lot of pressure.

The topic was good but the speed was too fast.

I hope next time you'll perform better. For now I can't help but rate as 1 star.

The speech was interesting, there was enought time left to explain something more (e.t. was 1h, the speech ended in 30mins)

Interesting introductory talk, and even if I already knew the topic, I got a couple of good new advices home.

P.S. If you dislike a talk, have the guts to not comment anonimously, come on!

Hi Michelle! You make a great work and i love your contribute to BDD. With your help, i get a lot of interesting things. Just an advice, don't worry about anonymous opinions, the important ones are those concrete! Well done! ;)

a good, light-hearted and fun overview - sometimes a little rushed perhaps. BTW, cool t-shirt michelle!

A bit too fast paced but good introduction to the motivations behind the tools.

She clearly knows her onions, and the arguments were really interesting, but and the end I feel to not had too much from the talk, since many arguments were touched, but without going deeper in any of this, and without seeing anything in action.
She is a very nice girl but I think she's was a bit nervous: I'm quite sure she can do better and give more.
I thank her anyway, of course.

Many topics were covered in this talk, maybe even too much. An informative talk.

Maybe I had higher expectation from this talk than I should and that's reason why I am not completely satisfied. I think that speaker should go deeper in some areas and to give her talk more confidence.

Speakers talking skills could be improved. Narration was a flat line, and speaker did not keep listeners attention all the time.

Lot of information without a story to connect them. For next talk voice up and connect information into a "story".

Topic is very very interested.

I understood from Twitter that the speaker was not feeling well from a concussion, so I will limit this feedback to the content presented. The material presented on Behat was however not much more than what you can read in the Behat manual and given the 1-hour slot the actual 30 minutes felt rushed.

Good introductory talk. I got some hints even if I knew the topic.

A bit too basic but really nice (and passionate speaker)
