Great talk that showed me that there is more to Redis than a simple in memory key/value store!

It was a great run through of AI, enough to get everyone excited about working with the technology

Great talk - got a bit confusing going back/forth in the slides for one of the sections, but I think Josh realised that already :) Otherwise, this was a good talk - well spoken, well explained (apart from the aforementioned part) and I learnt a bit about AI and what's going on with it. Super interesting.

I didn't read the abstract (oops), so I didn't really know what to expect for some reason, but having watched the talk, the title makes total sense :)

Good newbie-friendly talk that explores the distinction between learning syntax and actual problem solving. I like the potential of this talk for those new to programming, definitely.

Was a little muddled I'm afraid. I see the parallel Jason was trying to make, but it was a bit of a stretch in some of the principles to make the connection between the 10 "good design" principles and actual development work. Potential was there, but it didn't quite hit the mark for me, sorry :(

Although I don't agree with everything (though that may be because of the nature of my work), some really good advice here. Especially about getting a good chair an office setup that you're comfortable with, and also having a door that closes to keep noisy kids out. One thing I'd add: it's important to have a good, solid and stable internet connection.

Thank you for this - a very honest and open account of your story, as well as good advice to help others and ourselves.
