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?

I see a lot of the links are from TED talks. Let me share with you the last TED talk I watched that impressed me

 

Can't link the video, but the page that is holding it: The birth and death of javascript

Great talk, with some great (technical) predictions

 

I sometimes listen to Ted talks on Spotify and I loved this one

ted.com/talks/mike_cannon_brookes_...

I highly recommend it as you may be able to relate.

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.

 
 
 

I'll go non tech. this is what I was watching on the treadmill yesterday. For whatever reason I retain/get more from a biography/fiction than from self help/ted.

 

One of the talk that I liked is this one to improve Presentation Skills.

 

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.
