Great talk. Really clear and interesting.

Good job!

Very well delivered talk, especially considering this being the first time speaking at a conference. I'm impressed!

Awesome speaker - talk had meaningful depth and was very clear

Excellent speaker. Lots of information and materials.

Great presentation - deep expertise communicated clearly. Very impressive for a first time speaker. You're a rock star. Can't wait to see what you're going to present next.

Good talk, but I just wanted to make a few minor suggestions:

o your command prompt was so long is obscured what you were doing

o many of the slides could have been in a larger font

o perhaps stop more to get questions; it is more important to answer questions than to cover all your slides.

Other than that, great talk, great mastery of the material; you knew about Postgres transaction DDL in your other talk; excellent!

LOL...I agree about the command prompt. I've been meaning to switch to ZSH anyhow so I will likely have a cleaner prompt before the next time I get in front of a group again. Thanks for the reminder.

As for the larger font...yes, I agree. I had some trouble fitting what I wanted on the larger font slides; however, I could have mitigated that by spending more time splitting up the examples or simplifying them so they could cater to a larger font.

As for stopping more to gather questions...I suppose it depends on the audience. That being said, I may have discouraged early stoppage since I gave an early disclaimer that I had a ton of slides to cover. Maybe that was a bad idea -- maybe letting it flow as it may would be a better idea. Thanks for the thoughts.

Excellent feedback. I will definitely incorporate going forward.
