There are a lot of nice things to say about this presentation. It taught me what “grok” means, and it is a fine word. You can use it even if you are not a programmer. Look it up. The nicest thing I can say, though, is that is a helpful piece of advice for any intermediate programmer who is looking to get to the next level. Some key bullet points:
- Ask “Why?” obsessively
- Teach others, and speak a lot about the work you do
- It is okay to be reckless when experimenting
- Have opinions & principles
- Think like a programmer when AFK
I’m thankful that this video fell into my laptop at this precise time. It is very inspirational and just what I needed. Let me know if you watch it.
