  4. 10 Year Futures (vs. What’s Happening Now)

    Andreessen Horowitz’ Benedict Evans reflects on mobile, Google / Apple / Facebook / Amazon, innovation, machine learning, computer vision, autonomous cars, mixed reality and crypto-currencies - and more, in this keynote delivered at the most recent annual a16z Summit (November 2017 in Las Vegas).

    The personal computer S-curve gave us 1.5 billion PCs and 3 billion people online, and now the smartphone S-curve is giving a computer to everyone on earth.

    So today, we have two innovation conversations: First, what can we build on the billion-scale platforms we have, what new models can we create, and do the internet giants leave any room? And second, what are the next S-curves — the next transformative technology waves?

  5. Ruby Conf 12 - Y Not- Adventures in Functional Programming by Jim Weirich

    One of the deepest mysteries in the functional programming world is the Y-Combinator. Many have heard of it, but few have mastered its mysteries. Although fairly useless in real world software, understanding how the Y-Combinator works and why it is important gives the student an important insight into the nature of functional programming.

    Join with us on this journey of understanding. Be prepared to curry your functions and bind your lambdas as we delve into the whys and wherefores of this paragon of functional programming. Although you will probably never have a need for the combinator, the effort put forth to understand it will improve your functional programming chops. This talk is not for the faint of heart, but the successful student will be richly rewarded.

    Also, you will understand why "Y-Combinator" is the perfect name for Paul Graham’s start-up funding company.

    At the end of his talk Jim references Tom Stuart’s talk "Programming with Nothing" which can be found here:

  8. Fast By Default: Modern Loading Best Practices (Chrome Dev Summit 2017)

    Optimizing sites to load instantly on mobile is far from trivial. Costly JavaScript can take seconds to process, we often aren’t sensitive to users data-plans, and browsers don’t know what UX-critical resources should load first. Thankfully, there’s a lot we can do to give our users a MUCH better loading experience. Addy Osmani (and friends) illuminate new loading best practices for diagnosing and making real world sites load instantly today.
