There are plenty of excellent presentations that were recorded at various conferences. Many of those get lost in the sea of other videos with less relevant videos.
For a while, I thought it would be worth highlighting some of these, even if they are from several years ago. A curated list of Tech Talks.
The main topics I am interested in are
(Software) Development methodologies
Agile (as in the manifesto)
DevOps (as a methodology)
"best practices" for (software) development
As I watch these videos I like to take notes. When the speaker mentions a book, an author, or refers to a web site I like to look them up and include the links in my notes. That helps me remembering what the speaker said.
This turns them into Annotated Tech Talks.
As I am already doing that anyway at one point I started to share these notes in the hope that my selection of presentations and the notes will help someone else as well.
I am going to share some of these videos and notes here on DEV and to make it easier to find I'll put them in a series and this will be the opening page of that series.
If you are interested in the full list of videos I have already annotated check out the Annotated Tech Talks.
If you see presentation that you think would be worth watching and worth featuring let me know!
