PHP North West Video - "How to Stand on the Shoulders of Giants"
November 29, 2011 @ 14:55:50

The PHP North West conference has posted a video from this year's event - the keynote from Ian Barber of his "How to Stand on the Shoulders of Giants" session.

As software engineers, we all have the potential to navigate the history of our industry, tease out the genius from what has come before, and build a platform for our own ideas. By doing so, we can see that little bit further and in turn provide the foundations for others to build on what we have done.

In this session we'll look at how the history of the web itself is rooted in sharing information and how modern giants like Google and Facebook are founded on what came before them, while being driven forwards by the ecosystems they helped build. We'll see how successful open source projects leverage the past, and how by following some simple principles we can make use of the information, projects and people around us to improve ourselves and our careers.

You cab view other videos from the 2010 event on the PHPNW video channel on blip.tv.
