Over the weekend the video of my #GopherCon  talk was published.

Video: GopherCon 2014 Closing Day Keynote by Andrew Gerrand
Slides: http://talks.golang.org/2014/go4gophers.slide

Writing this talk was one of the most difficult things I've done, mostly because it's the most personal talk I have given. I felt very vulnerable straying into philosophical territory. I was terrified: What if my message didn't resonate with the audience? What if I can't explain myself properly? What if I'm simply full of crap? And being the last talk of the conference, my failure (should I fail) would be left ringing in everyone's ears.

The response to the talk was very positive, and that has been hugely validating for me both professionally and personally. It is wonderful to know that I am in such good company in the Go community.

In fact, that's the main feeling that I was left with after GopherCon. While the talks were fantastic and the event went off without a hitch, what impressed me most was the attendees. I've never attended a conference with a more intelligent, curious, experienced, and passionate crowd.

I'm looking forward to next year!

This is Ian Stewart's list, from his book by the same name.

What are some other choices?  I would nominate the quadratic equation, A =pi r², and Google page rank.

Not convinced you need fluid and smooth animations in your apps? What if I told you that what you see trumps what you know?
