    Anyone have any favourite mindblowingly awesome web development videos? front-end/back-end/whatever-end. Sessions from conferences, tutorials, or whatever…

    Need some stuff to show my team at our developer lunches :)


    Anything by Lea Verou.

    Chris Coyier has a few out in the wild too…and dozens here.


    @alenabdula sent me this video almost a year ago. I’ve been thinking about it ever since:

    The biggest thing for me is trying to find a balance between stunning design and keeping things simple. This video imho stresses the latter… which I think is good. If I had to choose only one, I would choose simplicity. There’s a certain beauty and elegance to understated design.

    Be that as it may, I’m still LARGELY subject to the whims of clients and you know what they want? INSANE amounts of eye candy. They want to feel like they’re getting their money’s worth.

    One thing the video touches on is Photoshop mockups… which I agree need to die. I haven’t done them in a LOOOONG time and I don’t think I ever will. Designing in browser is for sure the way to go. I’ve even gone to the extent of canceling creative cloud and doing away with all Adobe products… but that will probably be short lived as I’ll need to do some video work at some point.


    Oh and anything by Paul Irish is badass as well. So are the Matt Cutts videos. They’re good for understaning more about Google.

    A site (not necessarily a video) that is great to check out is Brad Frost’s site. @alenabdula introduced me to that as well and I really like his philosophy.


    If you’re doing JS, watch Douglas Crockford. Look for “the good parts,” then anything else.

    Related; here’s a couple web security videos I found recently:

    I’ve been hacked, now what
    Web security and you


    Anything by Kyle Simpson as well for JavaScript.
