As someone that relates to feeling that giving a talk is one of the scariest things ever, I believe you did a great job! Lessons that I have personally learned is to slow down your speech a little bit to be able to speak more clearly.

Content was great, and I personally found the talk informative and you are definitely knowledgeable in the topic.

Great job!

You did great! I wouldn't have known it was your first talk if you didn't mention it. (You did seem seem a little nervous at first, but you quickly feel into your groove.) If I could give any tips it would be to watch your "umms" - it's totally okay to have a second or two of silence, even though your mind really wants to fill that emptiness with an "umm".

I really enjoyed the talk - it was cool to see how one of my favorite media orgs built and maintains their API!

Fascinating overview of common concerns and best practices for building an API. Definitely appreciated references to other useful related talks both within and without the conference. Content was well-organized and delivered at a good pace, leaving some time for Q&A. Excellent job for a first-time speaker.

The content was great.
We could obviously tell that the speaker was a bit nervous in presentation but they powered through that and gave some solid information/tips for those who are already somewhat familiar with OAuth 2.
I found this talk very useful.

Was good getting the view of OAuth2 from the provider's perspective. I appreciated the breadth of data presented, and the depth of experience the presenter brought.

Thanks for braving it out.

I was expecting a more strategic view of launching a platform as opposed to the specific tactics but the content and approach were great.

In terms of additions, I'd love to see what adoption looked like pre/post the current version and how these lessons improved those numbers. Even if you can't share numbers, magnitude/scale would be useful.
