Simplicity Rules

I was honored to speak at the inaugural Ignite Portland tonight. The format was a quick 20 slides, auto-advancing after 15 seconds. It’s the essence of simplicity!

Below you’ll find my slides, a video of the presentation, and links to learn more about some of the topics I mentioned, and a little more about the three books I quoted.

Update: Added video above
