What I like about it

  • Sharing experiences
  • Good overview of important facets
  • The "distributed"start
  • Sharing of practical experiences, both from presenters and audience
  • Well prepared
  • Nice examples
  • Real world experiences that were shared
  • Lot of practical info
  • Nice slides
  • Enthusiastic presentation
  • Very practical, lots of examples
  • Very practical, good examples and tips
  • Interesting examples
  • It's all familiar to me, so it verifies what I thing / what is my experience
  • It was based on real world examples
  • The shared experience of everyone and the tips
  • The "real life" call with skype
  • The discussion and interaction with the audience

  • Examples and tools
  • Real life experiences

To improve

  • "higher energy" > make it more fluent
  • Maybe add some concrete examples of how you can change the organization/composition of distributed teams to tackle some of the pitfalls
  • More concrete tips from real life situations
  • What does it bring to you / to a company
  • How to do estimations together
  • A more strategic or tactical perspective (how to quantify costs and benefits eg)
  • To hear something new, new tips
  • Add more discussions
  • Brainstorming on ideas
  • Costs: wait to show, let the audience give their list, add yours at the end
  • Let a little space for experience of the participants
  • Stories about "cultural conflicts" are fine, but don't generalize too much
  • Add some more self-mocking, so it doesn't seem you're "attacking" people
  • Nearshore examples
  • Nothing wrong with it, just not my biggest interest
