Really nice and entertaining talk!
This talk felt confused to me - it started off with the shiny object syndrome bit, then morphed into what felt like another talk about interpersonal relationships. Both were good, it just felt a bit mixed up! Very good presenter however, with good energy for the final session.
I usually find keynotes a bit lacking in useful info, but this one had some nuggets of good advice to take away, and Angel is a good speaker.
This talk initially felt confusing. I didn't know what I got out of it until after the session, but once it clicked it was brilliant. I don't really think you shared advice on how to avoid the Shiny Object syndrome for me. I think you shared advice on how to work better as an individual in a team - And that was also very valuable. I'd love to see this talk turn more into a "working together" talk, incorporating the shiny object syndrome, than other way around.
While Angel is an excellent speaker, and relatable, I struggled to take too much of a message from this keynote. It's great to be pragmatic, but I feel like some examples where a more "boring" approach did just fine would have been welcome.
I liked the talk, was quite interesting
