In this video from Stack Overflow Dev Days London, Jon Skeet (Stack Overflow’s most reputed user and Google engineer) and his sidekick “Tony the Pony” deliver a fun and entertaining session titled “Humanity: Epic FAIL”.

In this 30 minute talk Jon looks at how humanity hasn’t made life easy for developers and questions the rationale (or lack of) behind timezones, string manipulation, dates and more.

A full transcript is available complete with slides on Jon’s personal site.

Note: The sound quality at the beginning of the video is not the best but does improve a few minutes in.

You can also view the video directly on Vimeo.

  1. I’ve heard Jon speak just once before. This one is just as good and I didn’t have to travel.
