I think the subject was interesting, but the presentation could have been better.

I understand that this was supposed to be a lightning talk, and that there was thus no time for loads of details, but a I think that a little bit more content would have improved the talk: Either some very simple code samples (we are programmers after all :), or maybe a description of a very concrete example where this was used (with details, services' functions, input / output etc.) would have been nice.

The host mentioned that this was the speaker's first talk, which is fine. But I don't think the speaker himself should then mention that again, nor mention that he fears that his talk is too short. Focus on the content, cause I think that is where the presenter's strength will be!

Very much enjoyed this talk.
The content of the talk was very interesting and covered a lot of ground.
The structure of the talk was good with the order in which concepts were introduced and the way examples, background information, history, xkcd, and opinions were interwoven.


Great talk! You were easy to understand.

Pretty much everything was easy to follow for a non-pythonista like me, apart from the 'Coroutines & yield from' slide. While I understand now by looking at the code carefully, the 'yield from' and 'asyncio.async(fn)' statements could use some more attention. If you're speaking for a Python audience, this comment may not apply.

The slides were sometimes hard to read on the TV, but that's more of an oversight on the venue's part.

All in all, very good!

Host said this was speaker's first talk and with that in mind, it was a good start. Got better as he relaxed, interesting topic but would've liked to see code.

Great talk. Really different than my normal job but that made it a lot of fun. Some of the futures and tasks stuff could be explained a little better but really interesting, like how it covered everything from very low-level to actual language usage.

Very interesting talk and great delivery
