In this presentation made during QCon 2007, Dave Thomas talks about expanding people's expertise in their domains of interest by not treating them uniformly as they had the same amount of knowledge and level of experience.
Dave Thomas is a programmer, author, and publisher. With Andy Hunt he runs The Pragmatic Programmers, a consultancy which specializes in improving the lot of developers.
QCon is a conference that is organized by the community, for the community.The result is a high quality conference experience where a tremendous amount of attention and investment has gone into having the best content on the most important topics presented by the leaders in our community.QCon is designed with the technical depth and enterprise focus of interest to technical team leads, architects, and project managers.
Funny too. You often see tech presentations being described as humorous and they rarely are (unless you like lame tech jokes). Dave Thomas though has a good line going in comic effect.
Presentation doesn't play through
If I try to play again, it starts over from the beginning. And yes, I have tried to drag the progress bar to about where it left off; that doesn't work either.
I am viewing this page using FF 3.0.1.

I had also tried on IE 7
Great use of an hour for your development.
Also for clearly stating things like 'Don't depend on your org to train you' - this is something that most people grasp after losing too much of their 'receptive' life
