Awesome conference talks

Need suggestions to refactor my code

Just watching this one by Jessica Kerr and I haven’t skipped anything yet! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: (I’m not one for watching very long talks/videos unfortunately).


I will be sharing a lot here. I happen to watch countless full length talks. One thing I’m picky about is audio and video quality. If the audio is hard to hear I wont watch it.
