My three favourite talks from Config 2024

I was sick for a couple of days last week. So I tended to my illness by watching a bunch of talks from Config 2024 under the safety of my blanket. A lot of good talks but here are my favourites:

This is my favourite talk, not because I think all developers should know the basics of design (which I do). But because it’s also about prototyping and getting feedback for your work early. Working in a vaccuum for too long is one of the easiest ways to build something that misses the mark.

A super fun talk about building software using techniques and inspiration from other fields, game design in this case. !Boring creates some beautiful apps and this talk shows us why.

This one is just fun, entertaining and extremely interesting. I don’t plan on ever creating any typefaces but I was engaged all through the talk by Marcin’s passion for the history, significance and versatility of pixel fonts.
