Talk comments

Nice intro, just some minor issues like standing in front of the slides, add a bit of interaction with the audience, ...

Also, practice makes perfect, just try to keep those small things in mind and do this talk again a couple of times.

Nice talk but I missed a bit of more in depth examples.

You also seemed to put focus on a _person_ (scriptkiddie, amateur, pro hacker), but in fact most hacks are just bots scanning and trying whole subnets. Maybe also explain you shouldn't only secure for a person with a goal, but also for the bot that will scan you.

Well done for your first talk. I remember my first talk well so I know how it is to give that first talk with no experience yet.

Some suggestions: try not to stand in front of your slides, it makes it difficult for some of the audience to view them. Keep practicing your English. Go to meetups/conferences and interact with non-Dutch attendees to get a better grip on speaking English. I know how hard it is at first when you're not used to it but practice makes perfect :)

About the talk itself: it's nice that you showed some basics from Laravel you like to the audience. But tbh, most of the things you covered were things which I believe most of the audience was already aware of. Laravel 4 has been out for some while now. I think most of the audience would have loved if you (for example) showed some new features from Laravel 5.

Keep it up and keep speaking to improve yourself! :)

This was a good talk, yet a bit long I think.
I think more interaction with the audience would keep more of the focus.
For example, when the explanation of MVC came my focus kind of slipped as this is something most of us should know.

To improve both of these little things you might ask questions to the audience like "Is there anyone who is not familiar with <insert topic here>?"
This will draw attention back to the talk for those that are slipping and if everybody knows about that topic people will not need to hear about it for the x time.
This will also give you the opportunity to delve into something deeper later on.

Overal a good talk though!

Really interesting talk, defenetly going to buy and read the books mentioned in the talk.
Good build-up of the presentation and nice interaction with the crowd about our own security problems.

This was a very informative talk and definitely showed that there are still a lot of developers out there that need to hear about security.
Also great tips and links, these will come in handy to improve.
Did not know about the fact that authorities needed to be contacted when hacked, and that there is a fine for failing with security.

I admire how you are able to talk with just slides containing a picture. It keeps the attention of the public at the speaker.

Maybe add a litte chapter about social engineering?

Personally I would have loved some more details about the tools used to learn and test security.

Great talk! Learned some things I didn't know before like the fact you have to let the goverment know if you've been hacked. Thanks for the great info and tips!
