Michiel has great presentation skills. A lot of subjects were discussed. Very convincing message.

Good speaker, nice slides looking forward to tomorrows session on db migrations now

I'm always looking for two things (at least) during the presentation: content and presentation skills. In this case, 5/5 and 5/5, another Michiel style talk ;)

A little bit controversial topic in the community was presented with solid arguments, possible practices and patterns to apply. Balance between fun and knowledge was perfect, I almost didn't notice how short 45 minutes are ;)

Good speaker who seems to have lots of experience. The content was simply good and he was very friendly during a question later on at the conference.

Good talk, nice structure with proper arguments. Maybe a bit too much ground covered in one presentation.

Good talk with more than enough content.

Always impressed with Michiel's expertise when it comes to the process of software development. I also appreciated the "I used to think that as well" honesty, it gives more power to the message: Deploying on fridays is not just something you say, but an evolution by the systematic removal of all barriers (in small steps).
The presentation is well structured, well paced and brought with humor.

Big message for just 45 minutes of time, but the skills of the presenter plus the content of the talk itself pushed the message home.

Great talk.
For me, Michiel is the type of speaker that makes it worthwhile to visit a conference: clear message, brought with confidence, humor and some good practice suggestions to take back home. ;)

I loved Michiel's talk, it was both pertinent to a current client of mine, as well as brilliantly presented. The talk provided a plethora of actionable information, which I found extremely digestible, well paced, and intertwined with a good mixture of humour :)
