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.

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.
