The lovely people of Devs love bacon today released the video of my talk Helping or Hurting and I am blown away by the quality of it. Really TED style stuff.

Christian Heilmann – Helping or hurting? from BACON: things developers love on Vimeo.

I had given the talk slightly more focused before at the jQuery Europe conference (notes are available here) and thought it is important to bring the message out as a video. We are right now hurting the web of the very near future by building tools that seemingly make developers more effective but at the same time make them dependent on abstractions. And if we don’t make these abstractions not use the newest and most performance optimised technologies under the hood we are just adding more and more cruft to the web.
