Nice thought provoking talk about the balance between perfect code and production code.

Shipped vs perfected is something I struggle with daily. Graham did a great job explaining why "shipped" is so important and how to get there without racking up tons of technical debt or unnecessary extras that need to be managed.

I really needed this talk. I try too hard to plan for the future of a code base, without looking for the "MVP". This talk really helped solidify the fact that "perfect never ships". Thank you Graham!

I really enjoyed this presentation. Fad based development can really be a problem (Command Bus example was great) and new developers think they need something complicated to be "professional". The presentation used a side project but I felt like the rules & needs when implementing a side project might be a little different than implementing an application a business is going to rely on. On the positive side, I don't necessarily apply YAGNI to code and infrastructure as I do features, but Graham made a great case for keeping it simple. I don't think I've ever had the problem of being a perfectionist otherwise I probably would have rated this talk a 5/5. Thank you & great job!
