The Mikado Method
Comments are closed.
The talk felt (and was) a bit short, but I'm not sure if there was more to tell about the technique :) it was well brought and nice to listen to. Maybe you can think of more benefits you can get by using the technique to lengthen it, like estimation and planning.
I found it really short, maybe you can use that time to go into a practical example on let's say swapping Doctrine with Propel in a demo "My first blog" or something.
Really short talk, don't rely on questions. Would love to see a bit more concrete/clear explanation about the method. It wasn't really clear why reverting code is good or when the mikado method really shines.
I agree that a small demo would have been nice to have, including some complex cases, such as a sub task that depends on another feature or something like that. With that, you would fill in the time gap and the message would come over better.
Unfortunately I didn't arrive in time or the start of the talk and I couldn't really get into it afterwards. My mistake, very sorry about that.
As far as presentation goes I think you did a pretty good job: good and clear voice and some nice hand drawn slides to go along with a well delivered talk.
You explained afterwards the reason it was so short was that you forgot some stuff; maybe due to nerves or something.
Don't be discouraged though; maybe keep a cheatsheet with the important points to make next time and you're there!
Pascal was presenting and talking in a nice and clear way that certainly kept me engaged. The talk was a bit short and I realise this may have been nerves, that otherwise didn't show.
I liked how you engaged the crowd last time I saw you give this talk and how you were incorporating the mikado method while giving the talk, it might be an idea to keep that piece to as others say: Give more of a real life example and engaging people.
It's the second time I watch this talk, and I still got many cool insights and tips; was well presented and very interesting. It was a bit short, I think if you could add a "live demo" as you did in the first time it would be great.
Like I said, didn't want to miss out on your talk. While still a bit sleepdrunk I managed to get in time for your awesome talk. I liked the way you explained the Mikado Method and the nice slides.
Maybe next time add some cheatsheet to your presentation, like Petra suggested. 'Cause I think that you only have much more awesome things to share.
Really interesting topic but ran too short. Speaker seemed very nervous, was very obvious which was sad because he was actually doing a really good job. Still, promising subject and promising speaker.
