Couldn’t agree with this article more. I hear a ton of podcasters talk about how they mostly attend the “Hallway track” and watch the talks on Youtube.
Reminds me of Real Genius where the kids start just having tape recorders tape classes and ultimately the professor just has a tape player running rather than attending himself!
That scene is from Real Genius :)
Great article. I hadn’t heard much of people doing the “hallway track” before, but I can understand how it could be a problem.
Ah right good catch :)
The emphasis may be a meme that got amplified in the Python community in particular.
