Chris Ferdinandi talks with Dave Rael about teaching and learning, self-discovery, JavaScript, and delivering value

Chris Ferdinandi helps people learn vanilla JavaScript. His JavaScript plugins are used by organizations like Apple, Harvard Business School, and CNN. After years of struggling with hostile web forums, bad documentation, and incomplete tutorials, he now helps beginners learn JavaScript faster and easier. He love pirates, puppies, and Pixar movies, and lives near horse farms in rural Massachusetts. He runs Go Make Things with Bailey Puppy, a lab-mix from Tennessee.

Chris's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Talk to users and more uses and, if possible, observe people using what you've built
  2. Ask a lot of questions, especially about why people do things
  3. Focus on business outcomes and results over technologies
