How we learned metric-driven-development the hard way

I really liked the hand-on approach of this talk. The content came from a practical experience and the presented cases were interesting.
The only improvement I would suggest is to try to not only list a number of tools, but to focus a little more on the story of which tools were tried, why you made some decisions etc. It would make the talk feel more fluent.
Interesting tools were shared, with some real life experiences.
Might have been even more interesting with some interaction. Think in the usergroup could easily ask who is using what and if they agree or disagree or have other experiences. That could give some extra level of knowledge sharing.
Definitely interested in the slides!
Good talk overall, with some great information about (some) tools I've never heard of. Kudos.
But, some minor feedback :
1) Sometimes it seemed like you wanted to go over a list, and do it quickly. I know, there was a lot of content for a short period of time that a talk usually lasts. But I personally had the feeling sometimes that it went a bit too fast to be super informative.
2) Screenshots of the tools should have been a bit more close-up. I'm only mentioning this because, should you speak at larger conferences, people will want to see a bit more detail.
But overall a very informative talk.
When the talk started I thought, yes, this could be very interesting, but when the talk evolves it just lost me. Like someone already mentioned, I missed some screenshots, real examples. If felt after a couple of time just some info with some pro and cons but nothing more... What I loved was the selfmade graphics to announce the topics. To make the talk better I should suppose to go a little bit deeper on the tools you've have chosen instead of only the pro's and cons.
I understand that the idea of the talk was to give an overview of various tools available out there, to monitor applications and assess how well they are performing (or not performing). You lost me a little bit in understanding why you are using that many tools... You might want to go into a little bit more depth.
