You said "In this talk we'll cover backend tips and frontend tricks that will help your Rails app go faster than ever". Can you please mention the areas which you will cover please so that people know what they will be voting for?
I agree with @Bamboo, the namedropping is in direct contrast to what this whole anonymous voting process is all about.
I like the topic and would like to see the talk make it to Euruko.
That said, I don't think the namedropping was necessary. I can see why you did it, but it would have been easy to play along and stay anonymous.
Not enough details are given. Some more info would be nice.
