What's a great talk you watched or listened to recently?

I came across a great talk by James Long tonight that he gave at dotJS 2019. I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend that you give it a watch.

This one happens to be software related, but what is a great talk (any topic) that you watched or listened to recently?

Great talk, with some great (technical) predictions

Thanks for sharing. You definitely have to get out of your comfort zone to grow. For myself this worked to get where I want to be in my career. I touch on it in this post.

Can architecture think? | Peter Stutchbury | TEDxSydney

It's cool to apply this talk outside of architecture. It's really applicable to all engineers and creative types.
