Side Note : This was one of my favorite talks by Aaron Delwiche at Tedx, San Antonio. The case for programming. For everyone. The underlying theme was that as technology becomes simpler to use for everyone, it’s important for all of us to understand how technology works as opposed to simply using it. Aaron started programming when he was 7 and shares how it’s not as hard as perceived.
Side Note : This was what I took away from Shannon Sedgwick Davis’ s TEDx talk; a human trafficking advocate. Beyond the human trafficking (heart wrenching) issues she talked about, it was a call for people to do find more meaning and purpose in their lives.
Side Note : I attended Tedx San Antonio last Saturday and it was one of the most awesome events I’ve attended. This week I’m going to illustrate three of my most favorite talks starting from today (tough because every talk was brilliant).
This graph is based on a brilliant talk by Graham Weston (CEO of Rackspace) which answers the question : What do we want as an employee from a company? Ans : To be a valued member of a winning team on an inspiring mission. The only thing I have added is the hope of a winning team or the vision of one. If every boss keeps this in mind, our workplaces would be so much better.
