Brutalist Web Design
I mean, I’m a little stunned that some of this even bears noting. Use anchors for links? What is the point of using a non-anchor as a link? And yet, I believe anything of people who would build a website n JavaScript.

Goodbye Microservices: From 100s of problem children to 1 superstar
I have joked a couple of times now that what they call re-engineering as a monolith is what I call devolving to microservices. It depends on where you start.

Creative Scala
I'm a dilettante, at best, with respect to functional vs imperative vs object-oriented programming styles. The ideas behind FP fascinate me. Received wisdom I have been given is that scala is less pleasant than Haskell, but given I've barely used either I couldn't say with any certainty.

YOW! West 2017 Andy Clarke - Designing inspired style guides
Andy Clarke is ridiculously engaging. I left web development years ago and I was never anything of a designer. I'm interested in design systems though, and this is a great presentations that has left me inspired to do something, however rudimentary.

YOW! West 2017 Lee Campbell - Cost of a Dependency
I saw a version of this talk in 2017. I forget when exactly. A few weeks after this video was recorded, I think. At the time I was so struck by the wrong thing and then too intrigued by the CQRS+ES architecture that I missed the point. But when you bother paying attention, it's a hell of a point and it makes possible what I was dazzled by. (which was the speed of the unit tests he was running, which is a hundred times faster than those in the platform I support)

YOW! 2017 Sebastian von Conrad - An In-Depth Look at Event Sourcing with CQRS
I saw a revision of this talk in Sydney on June 12th. It really helped me get to grips with the concepts. I'd tried to understand it after watching another talk in 2017, but the book I was using defeated me.
