Your (coding) standards matter

please give this guy something to drink before the talk. Solid presentation, but without the constant jugging of water it would have been better.

The constant drinking distract the presentation.

Don't drink and speak. It starts being distracting and ends up being plain annoying....

Didn't mind the water drinking personally; after a while I stopped noticing it. It's less intrusive and much more comfortable than ending up with coughing fits for sure.

Solid talk and introduction to some of the hard technical aspects. I liked the softer considerations that there should be a balance between coding-standards-fanaticism and business goals as well.

The funny parts prevented me from fully entering my food coma. Very informative and enjoyable.

The subject is probably really interesting but I just couldn't get around the fact that Volker seemed very uninterested, had a real "meh I don't care" attitude and literally slurped from his glas of water every 2 sentences, either you jug the whole glass of water or take a sip once or twice every 10 minutes but this was just annoying. I've seen Volked do much beter!

Loved the concepts and tips on how to inject standards into a team environment without breaking everything apart.

Thank you for the feedback so far!

Sadly I caught a slight conference-cold and was coughing heavily the whole day - hence the steady drinking. I didn't really see a way to avoid both and went for the silent option. Given that it seems to really distract from the content, which saddens me greatly, I'll try to find a better way to fix this should i have throat problems.

Maybe I just have just announced it in the start.

I expected a bit more "why you should have standards" and a bit less "here's how to use the tools", but that's my own fault for not reading the description well enough before attending.

I didn't find the drinking annoying at all (having a drink now and then paces the talk, which is a good thing anyway). I also disagree with the "meh" attitude; your presentation style seems relaxed and well-paced to me. Some speakers are constantly hyped, others are more relaxed, either is fine.

Your presentation was very composed and the examples made everything clear.

I liked the fact that you paced yourself. Having a very (fast) and over-enthousiastic talks can also be draining on the participants.

You have a clear and steady opinion about the subject and bring it very well!

Great talk and content!

I lol'ed at the first comments which were given before the talk was even finished.

Ah well, great talk. Can't really give any downsides. Didn't even notice the coughing that much.
