Great overview on JSONB and similar data types. Well delivered.

Really interesting overview to storing different data types. Immediately started thinking what we could (should) be doing different, so it did its job!

The talk was very interesting. I really liked the comparison of the various storage methods and the discussions of the pros and cons of each. It was way more helpful than the fanatical presentations about one particular product that claims it's a silver bullet. I learned a broad range about different data types in the different "databases", and how to query them.

A good presentation although for me specifically I didn't pick up any new learnings

The speaker spoke well. I wasn't a particular fan of the content this time round. I felt the talk spent too much time on how to store data rather than why you would store data with each method. I felt a better talk would have covered one or many use cases, the options available and why you may lean towards one more than another.
