Focus on people

Krakow, 14 - 16 September 2016

The Conference

From the very beginning we were focused on people, not on companies. Being developers ourselves we thrive to provide the ultimate experience that you'll remember. We'd like to connect awesome speakers with the willing to-learn-and-share-knowledge community. It's not only about sessions - it's about meeting with like-minded people - this can result in great ideas, is that right?

Russ is the author of two highly regarded books: The first, Design Patterns in Ruby was published in 2008 and is a complete reworking of the classic Gang of Four patterns for a modern dynamic programming language. Russ's second book Eloquent Ruby is a guide to writing idiomatic Ruby.

Workshops

For those interested in getting their hands dirty with more practical things, we set up pre-conference workshops. They are planned for 14th September 2016 and last for a full day.

14 September 2016
9:00 - 17:00

React + Redux

Surely by now you have heard the buzz surrounding Facebook’s React. More and more people and companies are using it to build largescale production apps (including at Netflix). Brian Holt guides attendees through an overview of React. In this training, attendees will go from knowing nothing (or very little) about React to building a whole app using React and Redux. React has some neat bells and whistles, like virtual DOM and the speed at which it can render content to the DOM and update it thereafter. However, these are not the most compelling reasons to use React. React introduced some fundamental concepts to the frontend development world, chief among them declarative components and oneway data flow. Brian outlines how you can take these concepts and apply them to any code you’re writing. In addition to covering how to write user interfaces using React, Brian will explore managing data using Redux. Redux is a great library from Dan Abramov that makes managing data stores very simple. We will discuss how to use Redux to make Fluxlike stores.

As a bonus, Brian will give a brief treatise on universal rendering with Node.js using React and a discussion of what is new in the React community.

Internet of Things - Build It

Hands-on workshop for building connected IoT electronic devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data (Wikipedia). As of today, there are more than 20 billion connected devices, including smart cars, wearable devices, connected agriculture and medical devices, and more.

In this workshop, we will learn how to build our own IoT connected devices. We will start with some electronics fundamentals, learn about the Arduino and the Raspberry Pi platforms and the different connectivity options, and even get some handson experience with building our own devices. Each participant will create several of Arduino projects, starting from a simple “Hello World” program, and advancing to build a fully functional twitterconnected “Simon Says” game with real buttons and LEDs. No prior electronics or hardware project is assumed, and hardware kits will be provided.

Uri Shaked Uri Shaked
9:00 - 17:00

Building Scalable JavaScript Apps

Building and maintaining large and scalable JavaScript web apps isn’t easy. So how do you build such things without being driven to madness? Using and combining proven JavaScript patterns will do the trick. In this oneday workshop, we’ll discuss the patterns behind some of the largest JavaScript apps, such as Gmail and Twitter, and we’ll explore how to apply them in your own apps. We’ll start from object patterns and then focus on module patterns, promises, timers, and more.
