CocoaLove focuses on talks which don’t deprecate as soon as you leave. In 2015, Allen gave this talk.
Allen spoke about the similarities between indie programmers and artists/musicians. Thanks to advances our tools and the community it's never been an easier time to get into programming, but that leads to a highly competitive hit-driven economy very similar to music, where it can be hard to get noticed. Sometimes we need to focus on our side projects not for the potential economic gains, but the creative outlet they provide.
