Holistic approach instead of all about the code, I liked it. Empathy is important. :)

Sometimes we all need reminders like the ones Matthew gave in this talk. The emphasis on empathy, communication, and humility did a nice job reminding us that most of being a good developer is being a good person. Matthew did a great job articulating a lot of ideas we let float around in our heads without ever really solidifying.

Great
