Amazeballs cool stuff.  It would be doubly cool if we could build the
slides/info for this track in a way we could also repurpose them as
sections of the ComDev website, to provide permanent URLs to bits of
training content people can also consume on their own.

The Apache Way track in Miami I organized had a lot of individual parts
that cover these issues, although the speakers there each did their own
take on specific issues.  I was really impressed how well all the
speakers echoed each other's messages - even without all of us reviewing
slides beforehand!  There were a couple of talks that were exact quotes
of each other - but then explained the concepts in completely different
ways, the better to reach all audiences.

  https://whimsy.apache.org/events/talks - this is easy to add new
pointers to, and would be great if more people listed talks here.

I can help with specific content, but won't have much brainwidth to
organize the track overall - but definitely agree you've got a really
powerful message that should be in the schedule.
