It’s about building a development team that can rely on each other. Which phases does a team go through when it’s growing? How do you work with each other, what are the unwritten rules. How can you build routines, get better at estimating. Why is the principal developer as important as the newly joined junior developer? How do you work with a mixed team of frontenders and backenders. All these topics are compared to how professional sport teams work.

Nice talk. Lots of insight, but I felt like the pararel between developer teams and sports only came on the second half of the talk.

Great job, very refreshing talk!

Great talk, the theory behind it with the team phases helps the story. Only thing I wanted to see more was some real life examples on how you can help your team get into the performing phase faster.

I heard from other attendee's you seemed a bit nervous, but I didn't pick up on that. Your delivery was solid and the info was good and important. For 5/5 I would love to see the sports theme coming out more in the first part and some more of your own experiences, as it was somewhat theoretical.

Great talk! Next year I'd like to see him as a keynote speaker.

Great talk! A lot of the stuff I already feel and have experienced incl. the problems, some of the solutions and I really liked the fact that finally someone compressed them and gave a big list of things you can improve and how.
