  1. Top Task Management: Making it Easier to Prioritize by Gerry McGovern—An Event Apart video

    Top Tasks Management is a method, developed over ten years of research, that helps you focus on what really matters in your projects, giving you the evidence to remove that which doesn’t. It’s been used to great effect by organizations such as Cisco, Microsoft, Lenovo, Google, IBM, VMWare, and the European Commission. In this 60-minute video, recorded live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition 2016, UX consultant and creator of the Top Tasks method Gerry McGovern teaches you how to identify the top and tiny tasks in your projects. Learn what really matters, and (just as importantly) how to identify the inessential, low-level tasks that flood your designs and content pages, smothering simplicity, and confusing your users with an ocean of features and content. At the end of the hour, you’ll walk away with a strategy, giving you the ability to defend your decisions to your team and to management. Gerry McGovern is the founder and CEO of Customer Carewords, a company that has developed a set of tools and methods to help large organizations identify and optimize their customers’ top online tasks. He has written five books on how the web has facilitated the rise of customer power; appeared on BBC, CNN and CNBC television; partaken in various radio shows; featured in numerous print media publications; and spoke…

  3. Francisco Tolmasky: The Browser Isn’t Feature Complete

    With the rise of native apps, native wrappers, and even standards development, the browser has taken on a more behind the scenes role in web page delivery. I’ll be discussing the implications of this, and a framework for thinking about the role of the browser in the next generation of web applications.

  5. GOTO 2014 • What I Learned About Going Fast at eBay and Google • Randy Shoup

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2014 http://gotocon.com

    Randy Shoup - Consulting CTO (former eBay and Google)

    ABSTRACT eBay and Google operate some of the largest Internet sites on the planet, and each maintains its leadership through continuous innovation in infrastructure and products. While substantially different in their detailed approaches, both organizations sustain their feature velocity through a combination of technology, people, and process. This session will explore how these large-scale sites do it, and will offer some concrete suggestions on how other organizations — both large and small — can do the same.

  6. GOTO 2014 • Fast Delivery • Adrian Cockcroft

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2014 http://gotocon.com

    Adrian Cockcroft - Technology Fellow, Architect Behind Netflix Cloud Infrastructure

    ABSTRACT Companies of all sizes and backgrounds are having to deal with the transition to a world where software development is central to their existence and competitiveness. To deliver software products at high velocity requires four things. First, a culture of innovation that can see and respond to opportunities. Second, the data and analytics to evaluate alternatives. Third, a culture that can make decisions and assign resources quickly. Fourth, agile development and self service deployment. A fine grain loosely coupled architecture scales as the team size grows, a freedom and responsibility culture provides autonomy for innovation and fast decision making, unstructured "big data" analytics gets answers quickly, cloud removes the latency of resource allocation, and devops removes the coordination latency that slows down deployment. These ideas have made Netflix very successful, and Adrian is now taking them to a broader audience in his new role at Battery Ventures.

  8. ITT 2016 - Kevlin Henney - Seven Ineffective Coding Habits of Many Programmers

    Habits help you manage the complexity of code. You apply existing skill and knowledge automatically to the detail while focusing on the bigger picture. But because you acquire habits largely by imitation, and rarely question them, how do you know your habits are effective? Many of the habits that programmers have for naming, formatting, commenting and unit testing do not stand up as rational and practical on closer inspection. Kevlin Henney examines seven coding habits that are not as effective as programmers believe, and to suggest alternatives.
