A few weeks ago, I shared my script for my latest talk,
Solving the Engineering Strategy crisis,
which I gave at QCon last week.
They’ll have the conference video up in a few weeks, but I also decided to do a recording
of the final version (albeit a few weeks after the talk, so definitely a bit less practiced
than the live edition).
It’s worth noting that I reworked the final section a fair bit after the third practice
run because (as shown in these final slides, because it wasn’t flowing as well as
I would have liked, but the content is fundamentally unchanged, just delivered more
clearly in the final section. The first 40 minutes of the talk are essentially unchanged,
although certainly a talk of this length is a bit different each time it’s delivered.
I’m still avoiding most public speaking, have just run out of time a bit with work and finishing up
the next book, but it was hard to turn down the opportunity to do a keynote
at the same conference where I did my first public talk.
