This was a good talk. It compared functional programming to object oriented programming. It compared how the SOLID principles can be applied to functional programming. Finally, the speaker explained how functional programming can exist side-by-side of oo programming. I found the concepts to be presented well. One suggestion I do have is that the speaker could present the concepts a bit quicker and then add in more demos of the concepts in action. Provide a simple yet relevant example or two.

Good stuff, I plan on implementing some of the things talked about in this session.

Great talk, learned a good deal. Speaker was able to make an extremely dry subject and make it pretty interesting sometimes by making jokes about the dryness of the subject. I was entertained and learned some stuff, so mission accomplished.

This talk was great. Trying to cover such a broad topic such as application security in an hour is a huge undertaking, especially with a wide range of audience member experience. Chris did a great job explaining complex concepts in a way even a beginner could understand, without leaving out the technical details and mitigations/remediations that an intermediate can take action on. His slides provide a treasure trove of information for later use, and i hope every attendee takes the time to go through the links he included. He’s a fun and relaxed speaker, and I look forward to future talks from him.

This was a massive, massive amount of high-density content condensed down into a one-hour talk. I loved the presenter's advice to download the slides and click through on the various resource URL's that he presented. That allowed him to quickly go through a wide swath of security issues without getting bogged down, allowing the viewer to dig in as necessary. Considering how broad of an issue web security is, I feel that's the only way to address the topic in breadth.

What a great way to approach the challenge of changing team behavior. The humor and wisdom in this talk made the concepts clear, with actionable suggestions, and even homework assignments. Thank you!

What an engaging and uplifting way to end a conference committed to helping people grow and learn, with an inspirational closing keynote showing us how we can improve our teams’ ability to learn, cooperate and grow, by tapping into InfoSec concepts of Social Engineering.

Olivia is a great speaker who’s a delight to listen to and watch, who connects to her audience very effectively!

Always brilliant, nice talk about the benefits of decoupling from frameworks. How small effort can save a lot of hours of maintenance, and how to deal with legacy frameworks specifics. Great talk.

Best talk of the conference. So many takeaways that can be implemented immediately to help any team, neurodiverse or not.
