Great talk on both dealing with technical problems, and communication problems. Could be a keynote. Very polished delivery.

Fantastic talk! I almost forgot it wasn't the keynote.

(I also loved the slide typography and use of Oxford commas)

When the pre-existing plans do not work, the steps outlined should help dramatically: Stop. Make a plan. Have someone run interference. Fix the problem. Automate the it away. Add a note to include more source code when telling the story.

Kidding about that last part.

Interesting talk, great delivery; I think this could easily be expanded into a half-day training exercise. One of my favorite talks of the conference.

Light, Fun, and Informative! Some great ideas and illustrations to identify and fix problems calmly.

Excellent topic, well delivered, and obviously very well rehearsed. This could have been a final keynote for sure.

Slides were very well designed too... nice to see at a tech conference.

So calm, cool and collected, I loved this talk. Great points about how having a checklist and a plan will save us from ourselves!

Not enough tech though ;)

Arguably the gem of the conference for me. The sheer volume of take-away amazed me. The vacuum in my development scared me. The fact that I do some of this already (but not nearly enough) reassured me.

Great talk with great case studies/stories/example. Freaking out never gets you very far :)

Excellent talk! The speaker and presentation was very polished and professional. I agree with comments below this would be a great keynote.

Another great talk by a great speaker. Plenty of great information with plenty of real case examples. Definitely worthy of being a keynote.
