Today it’s raining here in Caldes (Barcelona). And it’s cold, and windy. And I can’t ride my bike. So there’s no better way to spend the day than clearing my “To-Watch List” of interesting videos.

What? You want to do the same thing? And you need some ideas? You want to watch cool, inspiring talks, but cannot think of any right now? Let me help you. Following is a list of the latest talks I’ve watched recently.

React Today and Tomorrow - 90% Cleaner React
