The Code Manifesto is a set of values, created in hopes of guiding our community towards a place that is welcoming, safe, and empowering to all. Currently, our communities are greatly lacking in diversity, and sometimes outright hostile towards the minority members that we do have. In this talk I try to illustrate that problem, and also cover WHY it matters, and finally what we can do to help fix it. I talk about what the Code Manifesto is, why it came to be, and why each of the values were selected.

Great mix of good explanations and personal experiences to explain a complex and delicate matter

Funny, enjoyable

Nice to follow, great theme and great "life guidelines".

Good opening keynote, the topics discussed are important and we sometimes forget how much of an issue this still is. Speaker gave a great perspective thanks to his personal experiences which helps emphasise the impact.

Enjoyable, interesting, inspiring, difficult argument explained very well. Just really fast speaking

Excellent keynote.

A talk that I wasn't expecting, and one I really liked, especially as a fellow father of a girl.

A very interesting speech. Thank you!

Surely inspirational!

Great talk!

Very good talk on a topic that is very important, incl. some funny moments (like developer salaries, which are super high in US but not so much in EU).

The kind of talk that should be seen by everyone (not only in IT community).
Really interesting and inspiring: a nice way to kick off the conference.
