Both presentations went fine. I actually liked that the “zenified” slides did not have any superfluous information on them. I could tell what I wanted and there was no distraction by reading.
The live coding also went very well, besides a small last minute change which resulted in an ugly null pointer exception rather than a plain error. My coding speed was fast, perhaps too fast but that was the impression I wanted to give. The message is: It is simple to do, you might need to learn it, but it is worth the effort. And I almost did it mouseless, but switching tabs still was easier with a mouse for me.
The last experiment of the day was an Open Space discussion. Which is actually very much like the normal discussions we have every day, so for me it only facilitates getting these discussions even in groups of strangers.
