Totally irreverent, very entertaining and humorous, however, amongst all of that, he had a great underlying message and some fantastic examples delivered in totally "non-geek" language - I really enjoyed his style and gained a much better understanding of all three areas of his presentation focus - Great fun!
Loved Peter's presentation, funny and engaging. Easy to understand for someone not so tech savvy. Great presentation.
