Bees & Sensors

Very enjoyable talk, great to see that there are ways to take software into the real (physical) world and see how tinkering with hardware can lead to serious applications. I liked that the speaker skipped a regular presentation: no slides, very little time management, instead this was just a very concise and enjoyable talk!

A pretty unusual talk for a software conference, focusing more on hardware solutions for the given problem. I found it fun, interesting and a refreshing change of pace. The talk was very easy to follow, which was nice for the time of the day.

Diana is a very good speaker, with just a hint of nervousness in her voice. She made excellent contact with the audience and held our attention for the whole talk.

I had no idea what to expect from this talk but was intrigued by the subject. I was not disappointed. Such an awesome and inspiring talk about the use of electronics to get data. The presentation style was engaging. Loved this! Probably the best talk I've seen at DomCode

Well presented, and fun topic, but missing structure: what was the actual point being made (besides "this is my what I do")? And perhaps equally much feedback for the org: the relation to coding was too far fetched / nearly non existent.

This was a really great compliment to the other talks. Hardware and hardware hacking absolutely fit in with orgs like DOMcode (see how much everyone loved the drone/beacon talk). Would encourage the organisers to have more maker/hardware/real world topics in the future!

The topic was interesting and was a great way to bring intangible-software-builders in touch with things more grounded in real life, like research. Using a combination of hardware and software to learn more about our world, things others haven't researched before, is exciting.

The speaker presented well, and while it wasn't her point I did appreciate how software here was more about "well we needed a program that could take data from x and send it to y and then transform it into this nice graph/chart" where software isn't the be-all end-all but just a means to an end, she articulated it clearly through her story and demeanor.

While short, this was easily one of the best talks of DOMCode, and there were some *very excellent* contenders.

Best talk of the conference.

Hands down the best talk of the conference. Important and interesting subject. It has hacking, programming, research, fun parts... Just perfect.

Amazing talk, very well delivered. Loved it.

I loved watching this talk. It really shows you how technology can have impact on the real world, and our understanding of it. I learned a lot about bees ;-)

I really liked the excitement of the speaker, it was really contagious, and I could feel that through the room. It worked both ways I think, and amplified both the speaker and the audience's enthusiasm.

Speaker was too modest in saying that she was not a developer as she displayed some very good thinking and problem solving. Although this was not a very tech talk, I liked it a lot, easily best talk I heard all they. Speaker transfers her passion for the bees to audience with such ease, my eyes teared up when I heard they die in sudden thunderstorms. Or somebody was chopping onions.
