Editorial Radar with Mike Loukides & Mike Hendrickson

Discussion on machine learning, 3D printing, devices and JavaScript

Mike Loukides and Mike Hendrickson, two of O’Reilly Media’s editors, sat down recently to talk about what’s on their editorial radars. Mike and Mike have almost 50 years of combined technical book publishing experience and I always enjoy listening to their insight.

In this session, they discuss what they see in the tech space including:

  • How 3D Printing and personal manufacturing will revolutionize the way business is conducted in the U.S. [Discussed at the 00:43 mark ]
  • The rise of mobile and device sensors and how intelligence will be added to all sorts of devices. [Discussed at the 02:15 mark ]
  • Clear winners in today’s code space: JavaScript. With Node.js, D3, HTML5, JavaScript is stepping up the plate. [Discussed at the 04:12 mark ]
  • A discussion on the best first language to teach programming and how we need to provide learners with instruction for the things they want to do. [Discussed at the 06:03 mark ]

You can view the entire interview in the following video.
