Thoughts from day one of CLL19 as a first time speaker

I was fortunate enough to speak at Continuous Lifecycle London (CLL19) this year. It’s the first time I’ve ever spoken at a conference and I found it very rewarding.
In the past few weeks, I worked very hard preparing my talk. I had almost expected to be working on my slides solidly right up to the point of speaking. This is probably why I didn’t give much thought to the other talks that I might be able to attend.  On the day, I felt more prepared than expected and was able to watch some really great talks.
Here are some of the thoughts from my experience of the day.
