Awesome! Very much enjoyed seeing, and hearing, the talk, on and about my Pinebook Pro! With Kali/debian on PineBook Pro: Wifi works; sound works, not very loud, but loud enough to hear the talk; also has difficulty with suspend/hybernate and low battery. 

What was the purpose of providing a makefile instead of just a PDF of slides? I already had graphviz, but all the rest took "185 MB of archives" download, and used "605 MB of additional disk space," for 1.2 MB of PDF file? Now I is a developer/builder?!
