Nice talk. Thanks
I agree with Michelangelo.
All good. Thank you. Very nice introduction into the workings and usage of (p)Redis. Entertaining, fast paced, witty, great graphics (and George Takei for president!)
This is a Topic for a full day workshop. This is not easy to learn but hard to master ;)
Good Idea to keep the view relatively narrow.
Thanks for an interesting talk; I am sure I will find a use-case for it ;) Code samples may be a good addition to the slides (instead of an IDE), and it would be also nice to start with an example, like
(term AND term) OR (term and term)
Starting with that, you can explain how you would create a parser to parse queries like these.
Great talk. Passionate, entertaining, interesting, inspiring.
The subject was very interesting and very technical. Advanced stuff that I'm sure will do very well at the conference.
- If you're not doing any live coding, just put the code on your slides. You'll have much better control over what is shown, how it is shown, and when it is shown
- Because the subject is so advanced and theoretical, your delivery is very important. You need to make sure things stay entertaining and captivating to prevent people from "zoning out"
That being said, you do picked a subject you really enjoy and care about, and it showed. Just practice and rehearse as much as you can, and I'm sure you'll turn this nice talk into a great talk :)
Excellent talk - the clear goal of Ross was to inspire the audience to use Redis and he has done a wonderful job trying to do that. I am definitely going to add Redis to my server stack.
Very impressed by this talk! Ross is a natural entertainer, even with a technical introduction as he did with this Redis talk. He already has got his "thing" wearing a not-mistakenly "Ross Hat" ;-)
No, a well paced talk with the right amount of information combined with humor and passion. This is what I like in talks, the passion as it makes it so more interesting.
For doing a first talk, Ross has done a great job! It appeared as though he was a veteran speaker and I want to see Ross doing more talks at conferences.
NOTE TO CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS: You need to add Ross Tuck on your schedule!!!
Just a tiny remark: Ross, you're a native speaker and most people understand English well, but sometimes you used expressions or words that were not familiar to the non-English audience… and I saw they didn't got the joke.
Conclusion: a rising star and a high-value speaker for conferences around the world… A+
Hey Boy, first of all: job well done in bringing a high-level topic to the table, you did well.
A few remarks though, but just meant as improvements:
- make sure you put your code-snippets in your slides, that way you can keep eye-contact with the audience
- add a few sample use cases in how or why once should use a parser in a particular way
- be more fluent in your speech, as though you're discussing it with your colleagues or friends
- don't be nervous, you've talked before and you know you can do it!
Take note of these comments and apply them in the next few days and it will rock the house at DPC!!!
This is the kind of hardcore talk I really miss at many conferences these days. But because it's so hardcore I'd suggest to put less text and more images in the slides. Next to that it would be better to have code snippets in the slides (maybe with the classname as the slide title) instead of showing it right from the IDE.
Also I'd like to see the workings of the PDepend parser.
With those additions this talk will be more than awesome!
