Sandi Metz: You Are Insufficiently Persuasive
One of my favorite very nerdy hobbies is watching conference talks from tech conferences I don’t attend. In my time doing that, Sandi Metz — who is best known inside the Ruby community — is one the consistently good speakers I always seek out. Her talk from RubyConf in New Orleans last year is no exception to the rule. You should watch it and be nerdy like me:
Sandi covers a wide range of not-code topics: happiness, persuasion, and what you can do to make yourself happier in your job. If that’s a thing you’d like—and wouldn’t we all?—check it out. She also covers the books Influence by Robert Cialdini, How to Win Friends and Influence People, and Drive, which are definitely on my reading list for 2018.
