Here is a nice summary of a user curated list of technical talks: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18217762
Some I have watched and enjoyed:
Gunter Stein’s inaugural Bode prize lecture from 1989 titled “Respect the Unstable” . In this talk, he uses a minimum of mathematics to clearly demonstrate the fundamental (and inevitable!) trade-offs in control systems design. He effortlessly makes the link between his (in)ability to balance inverted rods of various lengths on his palm (with shorter rods being harder to balance) to why the X-29 aircraft was almost impossible to control and why Chernobyl blew up.
The fundamental message is extremely important and the derivation is so crystal clear that it is simply marvelous to watch him present it. I like it so much that I re-watch it about once a year.
I had a nice Live Studio interview with Britt Womelsdorf at the 2018 SAP TechEd event chatting about the SAP Cloud Platform SDK’s. Check it out here:
(The video has since been taken down, but here are a few photos).
I had a nice opportunity to present some offer internal IT work we were doing at SAP, with the oil giant, Phillips 66. It was a great conversation sharing what, where and how we are deploying SAP BTP, apps and mobile solutions to help our company and its employees be successful. Here are a few slides and key take aways from the meeting.
Mentoring, coaching and sharing is an opportunity I am always willing to go the extra mile for. When one of my friends Sihma from Grand Valley State University (a fellow SAP mentor and part of the SAP University Alliance Program) asked me to do a personal presentation for their Computer Science students, I took a untraditional approach and shared the presentation below.Student-@-GSVUDownload
This was a packed TechEd for me. I was involved in Demojam, gave a talk on being a part of the SAP HANA Startup Focus Program and also did an TechEd Live interview with Jim Jacquet on the state of enterprise mobility.
