YUI Theater — Allen Rabinovich: "The Many Hats of the Frontend Engineers" (37 min.)
In one of the most creative presentations at YUIConf 2010, YUI developer Allen Rabinovich (@allenr) reflects on the many different roles played by frontend engineers as part of their natural generative process. The talk unfolds with a continuous scrolling illustration which is gradually revealed, adding layers of meaning to Allen's narration. If you consider yourself to be a frontend engineer who reflects on the nature of the work you do, this is a talk you won't want to miss. I recommend downloading the HD version.
