Excellent keynote Jordi. Thank you for bringing these issues to the forefront, and of course for all your hard work.

The best speaker! Outstanding!

Excellent overview of the highs and lows of maintaining a popular open source project and advice on how to navigate them from Jordi's own experiences. Loved it.

Excellent, quotable insights presented in an entertaining manner.

Thanks for all of your work and for sticking with it despite the abuse.

Good thoughts to wrap up the conference!

Amazing keynote!

Great talk and examples of what it takes to maintain an OSS project

Bravo! A brief look into the challenges (and joys) faced by leaders of popular OSS software projects.

Jordi is very informative and has very un-pretentious presentation style.

An honest and open look at the challenges that come with maintaining an open source project, from a member of our community that's on the front-lines. I very much enjoyed it!

Great keynote from Jordi, and an excellent closing talk to tek! Helping us recognize that project maintainers/creators are people as well.

Really enjoyed this talk about reminding us that open source projects are run by people, not machines. Did a great job of showing us what challenges open source contributors face, especially on more prominent projects. Oh, and mailed cakes are a great way to show appreciation for an open source contributors.

Excellent keynote. Great lessons here not only for how we should be interacting with open source project maintainers, but also how we should be interacting with each other.

Well presented with a great blend of humor and information.

I tend to comment on talks way after I heard them to reflect, often I forgot a lot of what I heard but yours is just like a keynote should be, inspiring, really really really inspiring, and almost brought tears to my eyes at some point, this is what a lot of people don't realise what's going on behind the scenes.

Also: Your presenting style is amazing, and your slides are beautiful.

Keep up the good work in everything you do, a well deserved 5, there's nothing I would change, thanks for a keynote I'll remember :)
