Finally I had the time to watch it (instead of doing some more urgent things :)
In general he had a couple of good points and some questionable ones.

What I found interesting is that, outside of that Larry Wall slide, he
has not mentioned Perl.

He bashed Assembly, PHP, Python, Java and Microsoft but not Perl. At
least not directly.
