Very knowledgeable, you know your stuff.
Consider revising talk for 50 min session, consider screen shots in presentation rather than live demonstration. Consider larger text so the audience can see what is on the screen
It only takes a couple of minutes to realize Samantha wouldn't need her slides or notes to give this talk (though her slides will double as a good reference book), as she clearly knows the subject matter incredibly well. The jumping between slides and CLI robbed time and continuity, but I'd prefer that to just slides. As someone who has used ES for simple(r) use-cases, I learned a lot.
Samantha obviously knows this subject thoroughly, and yet she made Elasticsearch seem accessible and easily implemented (at least for exploratory purposes). I'm a huge fan of code in presentations, and especially live coding, and I very much appreciated her use of curl to show what Elasticsearch is doing. Near the end of the talk, I immediately went looking for the slides on her website. I'd love to attend the full workshop version of this talk.
Really in-depth content made this very informative. Not having the key slides pulled out of the longer talk was a bit distracting.
