Excellent talk and great insight from someone who has been in the business for quite a while.

Lovely talk, lots of good recommendations that luckily for the most part we already follow at our company, but still a good refresher!

Some good reminders in this talk that I should keep in mind more than I currently do. Great delivery!

Super talk, loved every part of it!

The one thing that developers keep forgetting is "time". The passage of time will erode even rocks, and codebases are a lot less SOLID (pun intended).
Jeremy's talk adresses that nicely, and as usual there's always that one SUPER useful thing in his talk that you didn't know about before.

Great advice from someone who (like me) started programming in the pre-framework era.

Great talk and I really enjoyed it.

For a beginner talk, some things might need a little more (or sometimes at all) explanation.
I had to look through the slides afterward and look some things up. Only to find out i did now some of them, just not the abbreviations (xss for example).

Very insightful talk.

Yes, there were moment I felt Jeremy was 'captain obvious' but there were more than few examples where I was thinking 'why the hell didn't I think of that?'.

Tnx Jeremy!

It was good the hear that we are on the right track from someone who is been in the business for a long time. The talk was different than I expected from the title only. But after listening, and reading the summary, I understood that I had to prepare better.

It isn't a very technical talk but that makes it even better, enough humor during the talk.

This talk tied in with the ones I saw presented by Rafael and Matthias during the weekend and completed my list of "A-ha's!" and "Gotcha's". It was nice to see that some of the points highlighted in this talk, were things I already did naturally.

Definitely one of the better and more entertaining talks.

The experience that the speakers has adopted during his career as developer / manager summarized in this awesome talk.
We will certainly discuss the slides on the next dev meeting!

Amusing and yet filled with good pointers.

Good stuff on not just how to improve code, but everything technical around the code. A must see for everyone!
