Really great and powerful talk about getting involved in the community and how it can not only impact your professional life, but your personal life as well.

A really wonderful look at how contributing to the community can change your business life for the better. It's amazing how community connections can lead you places you didn't expect to be. One suggestion would be to shorten the section of the talk that addresses Josh's past employment. A couple of examples of how the community influenced his career path are sufficient, and that would leave more time for the rest of the talk after that section which felt a bit rushed. All in all, inspiring and a great keynote, and I really appreciate Josh's honesty and passion for the topic.

Fantastic talk about community involvement and how anyone can contribute to the knowledge and growth of others.

Brilliant talk by a brilliant speaker. Thanks for sharing your personal story!

This is the second time I've been lucky enough to hear one of Josh's presentations. This keynote was simply fantastic. An excellent talk about real experience and the power of community.

Good picture overview of community involvement sprint with a very personal touch.

It was good. There isn't much to say that everyone hasn't already gone over.

Motivated me to be more involved in my local community and not been afraid to share what you know, even if its a little someone else may not know that little!!!

I appreciate the insight into the life of a coder with mental illness and the emphasis on coming together in community to compliment each other's strengths and weaknesses.

I was very touched by your willingness to expose your raw emotions of appreciation for your wife.

Great talk! Heartfelt and inspiring. Who would have thought that from a Microsoft guy ;-)

Really impactful keynote about the power of communication, relationships, and generally being a part of the larger community and how it impacts both you and the room around you.

Awesome and Powerful

Great talk!

Had the opportunity to discuss my feelings towards this keynote with you in person already but wanted to reiterate. The slides and talk themselves were bland and uninviting, sure they were informational but had very little takeaway. Josh himself was the vibrant part that actually brought everything to life, as long as he's presenting it I wouldn't change the material. In addition to the amazing talk, he really opened up and expressed himself which was refreshing to see, especially from an opening keynote. Kinda set the vibe for the entire conference, once I got to meet more of the community I understood how he could be so open and hope to see him speak again.

Thank you for being so open and honest. An actual human.
