"MEAN 2.0 Architecture" by Scott Davis

2015 was a watershed year -- new versions of HTML (HTML5), JavaScript (ECMAScript 6), and HTTP (HTTP/2) were all officially released. Frameworks, platforms, and libraries were quick to follow -- Node 4.x, Polymer 1.x, Material Design, Web Components, and (of course) Angular 2 went into beta.

All of these new versions add up the most significant, coordinated changes to the web platform since the AJAX revolution of 2005. 

In this talk, Scott Davis (author/presenter of the O'Reilly video series "On the Road to Angular 2") talks about all of the core browser technologies you'll need to be familiar with in order to be successful with the new MEAN 2.0 technology stack.

"We Are Not Scientists; We Are Not Engineers; We Are Storytellers" by Scott Davis

Phil Karlton ("Principle Curmudgeon" at Netscape Communications) famously said, "There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things." In this talk, Scott Davis (author/presenter of the O'Reilly video series "On the Road to Angular 2") focuses on the "naming things" part of our profession -- specifically, what we call ourselves and what we do.

"Computer Scientist" and "Software Engineer" are two popular euphemisms for what we do, but neither is a perfect metaphor. "Software Craftsmanship" -- an extension of the Agile Manifesto -- comes closer, but it's still not a perfect fit. Come learn about the "stories" you tell based on the language you use to tell them, and more importantly -- how to become a Master Storyteller.
