Top Five Tech Talks

Published: 2021-12-17Updated: 2021-12-18

A personal selection of the most significant public presentations about technology.

Jonathan Blow - Preventing the Collapse of Civilization

Technological progress is not a given. This one made me want to learn compilers and low-level languages.

Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle

On the importance of an immediate connection with whatever it is you’re creating. I think about these examples often.

Rich Hickey - Hammock-Driven Development

Sometimes the best thing is to walk away from the computer. An excellent overview on focused and diffuse modes of thinking.

Liz Rice - Containers From Scratch

By far the best explanation I’ve seen on how containers work, and one of the most insightful videos on Linux in general too. I don’t even know Go, didn’t matter at all.

Cory House - The 7 Pillar Developer

Some very actionable and well-articulated principles on how to approach a career as a developer.
