I had the pleasure of speaking in New York this month at EmpireJS, and the video of my talk has been uploaded! I discuss why side projects are important to our learning & growth as developers, and offer some ways that we can integrate this type of exploration into our work so that our “side” projects needn’t be so peripheral to the rest of our jobs. It’s a topic I care about deeply, and I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to share it with such a great audience—thank you to everybody at EmpireJS for the warm reception you gave me!
