This is my fourth Magento Imagine conference and third year running I spoke about responsive design. Same rapid format: 189 slides in 40 minutes. Here’s your recap:

Responsive design in Magento’s core
The opening keynote revealed the partnership between Magento, Classy Llama, and Gravity Department to rebuild Magento EE 1.14 and CE 1.9 around responsive design.
Product updates start at 19:20. Mentions for my involvement at 22:48 and 23:52.
The development of the responsive reference design theme has been an extraordinary collaboration across the Magento ecosystem, spanning the Magento product team, the incredible commitment of Magento Gold Solution Partner Classy Llama, and responsive trailblazer and the founder of Gravity Department, Brendan Falkowski.
Retailers and agencies will have a big advantage building responsively using the new themes, and potentially complete projects 50% faster.
Normally I barricade my hotel room while fine-tuning my talk to the last minute. My presentation was ealier in the conference this year, so I actually had time to enjoy the parties and friends:
Started an illegal hotel-room poker game because the Hard Rock casino wouldn’t find a dealer to open a new table.
Bolstered my loner reputation:

Tweets from my talk
I love heckles and sarcastic fawning. It’s always interesting to see what people tweet during my talks.

@Falkowski enjoyed your talk today. Well articulated. Frontend stewardship and governance is needed. Care you share your slides— Tegan Snyder (@tegansnyder) May 13, 2014
