Great stuff. Is a video recording of this available online?

Hello @Hossein - thank you very much for your feedback :pray: - this is an infodeck rather than a slideument :slightly_smiling_face: (https://martinfowler.com/bliki/Infodeck.html…) so sadly there is currently no video to go with it :cry:. I hope you still find it useful.

So sad. Maybe you’ll do one some day in near future?

maybe - thanks :+1: - the idea of the deck is that it is just meant to be read and should contain everything needed to follow - my presence should ideally be superfluous

I wouldn’t quite say so. Reading over lunch isn’t as pleasant to me as watching a video, after all. :slight_smile:

lunch? no, I agree with you. I don’t mind reading the newspaper while I eat, but I wouldn’t read a slide deck, not even mine! :grinning:
