If you're looking for a unique talk, I really enjoyed Zen of CherryPy
by Robert Brewer:

It's a little silly perhaps, but I wish every web framework would give
similar talks.  It's interesting to hear about how design decisions
are made by framework maintainers.  I'd love to replace some of the
"State of X" talks (which feel like the presenter is reading a series
of blog posts) with "Zen of X" talks to get a better idea of how "X"
arrived at the state it's in today.

Anyway, if you want highly technical or information dense talks, this
one is definitely not for you.
