I thought this was amazing. Probably because I recently read all 87 chapters of HPMOR.

That was cool.  Thanks for sharing!

 

I love how he stresses the importance of backing up your argument with real data and evidences.  Software engineering is a highly opinionated field.  Each engineer would love to tell you stories of their conquests and of what they think is correct.

And you know he is serious because when that the audience got smart and asked for a study and info to support some offhand statement about being a Trotskyite he actually had it. Best speech ever.

I googled him to see what I could find, not any videos but:

This kinda stuff means a lot to me since I found out in my first couple computer science and programming courses that I had to try and learn it on my own or else I would get bored and frustrated and stop programming altogether. Not that that experience is confined to just comp sci for me though.

Beautiful Code is a really good book.


void hurrrrrrrr() {__asm sub [ebp+4],5;}

There are ten kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
