If you work in the field of information technology, you know how important it is to keep up to date on new developments in your industry. There are several ways to do that, but one of the best approaches involves listening to experts.
Fortunately, hearing skilled speakers talk about the IT industry is easier than ever thanks to the internet. In particular, TED Talks can be a great source of knowledge. TED talks are short speeches given by knowledgeable speakers who give deep insight into particular subjects. TED talks may share big ideas; demonstrate clever new inventions; provide context on pivotal breakthroughs; and expose audiences to issues.
