There are so many things I listen to, watch, read, etc - thinking I'll have the time to write something up on each. Well, that'll never happen, so here's just a list should I ever get there:
podcastnotes.org is a great highlights site for podcasts. Otherwise the ones I listen to regularly include:
Simon Sinek "Noah Story" - Nature/Nurture, environment makes the difference, catch us doing right, not catch doing wrong... feel you can be yourself. "It's not the people, it's the leadership". If we create the right environment, we'll get people like Noah at the Four Seasons. If we create the wrong environment, we'll get people like Noah at Ceasar's Palace.
Susan Scott - Fierce Conversations
Dave Brailsford and Aggregation of Marginal Gains
Absolutely inspiring talk in the value of getting immediate feedback
Spike and stabilize, baby!
We developers are prone to creating frameworks, premature optimisation, etc. "It's just a queue...".
Also Blaise Pascal's "If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter"
I love the way Rob Norris explains things w/a great, gentle "don't be afraid" introduction, yet quickly getting to a great practical example.
More Rob Norris awe
Great, entertaining talk by Mark Kirschstein
