Very well-structured and thought out talk from Nick, he clearly knows these tools very well. I especially enjoyed the visualisation and the live demo (extremely brave!)

It was a little hard to hear, more in the beginning I think

Nock rolled with the punches very well, the improved code being the wrong way round was quickly diagnosed and it didn't cause any issues.

Really enjoyed the live demo. We will definitely be trying Backfire as a direct result!

I liked the helicopter graph! Also the xkcd chart.
Loved the real (recognisable!) examples of sudden high traffic.
I liked that you tied together the different monitoring screens to highlight the correlation between data.
As a front end dev... Sorry! ?
Great breakdown of profiling and I enjoyed the discussion on how people think about profiling (i.e. when people think it's not easyable enough).
I think it's just because I'm low on sleep, but the dark background made me a bit sleepy.
I liked the live demo, it was helpful seeing how the graph held you highlight possible pain points.
Thank you so much!

Fantastic talk by Nick, some great information passed across. Very brave in doing the live demo (crazy ;) ). A great way of getting around the live demo is to use a video (then you can talk over it whilst not focusing on typing and screen switching)

Very engaging and interesting talk from Matt, lots to learn as monitoring via Google Cloud Platform is the limit of my experience but definitely something I'd like to learn more.

It's difficult to find something to suggest as an improvement but I would like to see an in-depth follow up talk of a specific case study with implementation.

Thoroughly enjoyable talk by Matt. Learnt alot, and great to know that I've been doing some of my monitoring the right way.

Not much to improve on, Matt was clear and precise, and his slides are great, but would have like to have seen potentially a live example of LoRaWAN, and the integration of it to get a feel for the data and the information it provides

Great insight into monitoring. A lot of it was over my head as systems, logging and monitoring is not my responsibility beyond monolog, but it's interesting to hear about the different aspects that go into monitoring.

Excellent stage presence, I loved how your points were punctuated clearly by the changes in the slides.
I liked that you gave a range of concrete, familiar (real world) examples in each point you made.
More of this was new to me than I'd care to admit, and it was very clearly delivered. You did a great job of impressing WHY this stuff is important and useful.
Thank you for repeating the question.
I think some of the logos on your slides didn't have labels, and I promptly forgot what they were if I wasn't familiar with them.
Thank you, excellent talk! Humorous, engaging and informative.
