Topic of his talk:
Why companies should be looking to hire more junior people
Demand for developers is at a historical height, competition is now global & developers are earning more than ever before, especially seniors. Not everyone can win at hiring senior devs, so companies that set themselves up to win at hiring & training more junior developers & fostering leadership from within are going to win.
