Buckled up and all set to kick-start your Agile transformation journey? 10 Road Signs to watch out for in your Agile journey. Brought to you in partnership with Jile.

Webstock '12: Scott Hanselman - It's not what you read, it's what you ignore from Webstock on Vimeo.


This is an older presentation by the one and only Scott Hanselman, but it's definitely worth watching if you haven't yet. 

How did we get here? As web developers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More APIs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second.

Young people rule the web and are more interested in the news of the last 10 minutes than the news of the last 10 years. Does all this information take a toll on their (and your) psyche or sharpen the saw?

Let's find out how to stop being thought-leaders and start being do-leaders.

-- Scott Hanselman, Vimeo page
