Simon is a fantastic speaker, providing you can keep up with somebody who speaks fairly fast. He always conveys a real enthusiasm for what he's talking about, looks very well prepared and manages to present complex things in a very simple fashion. He's one of the people I'm slowly trying to emulate in my own presentations, although I'm miles away at the moment. Simon's best known as one of the authors of Haskell and maintainer of the main Haskell compiler, GHC. However, you don't have to know Haskell to follow this talk; he introduces the necessary terminology as he goes along (that being said, some familiarity with programming is assumed).
