Justin Woo

Justin is a failed material scientist who now spends his time writing JavaScript for work and Purescript/Haskell for fun. He now lives in Finland as a result of being Twitter friends with André.


Speaks on: Simpler Cycling with Megadrivers:

Writing cyclejs apps can be weird when you have to work with separate streams fed into drivers. This talk proposes one way to get both stronger typing and a simpler model for your cycle projects by combining them into a 'megadriver'.

Aron Nyborg Allen

Aron is passionate about building digital interfaces. With an eye for aesthetics in design and engineering he has found a new home with Cycle.js

Raquel Moss

Code, cats, feminism, and functional programming.


Speaks on: Organising your code in Cycle.js - An ex-librarian tries to put things in order.

In my quest to create a neatly-organised Cycle.js component, I tried several different ways of arranging my code. Let's look at each, discuss what I've learned, the benefits and the drawbacks, and how we might innovate in the future.

Gleb Bahmutov

JavaScript ninja, image processing expert, software quality fanatic.


Speaks on: Web application quality beyond testing.

A successful web application should work. How do you deliver a single component or a complete application that never breaks; that is simple to understand and reuse? Let us discuss what the modern quality tools can do, and where they will go next.

Thomas Belin

I am a pure function of Time


Speaks on: UI as Pure Functions of Time.

What if we considered Time as a fundamental input of our applications?

Andre Staltz

I worked at Futurice and authored Cycle.js, and now open source is my main occupation.


Speaks on: The Past, Present, and Future of Cycle.js

Let's take a look at how Cycle.js was born, and how suggestions from the community were crucial to shape it and become what it is today. Then, let's see what possibilities we have for the next significant updates to the framework, and beyond.

Hackathon

Like last year CycleConf won’t just be a place to learn from our amazing speakers. It will also be a place to build upon the ecosystem. After an open pitching session teams can form around ideas to build technologies over the weekend. Every team will have an opportunity to present their work Sunday. It might sound a bit intimidating, but it was a great success last year, even beginners had a great time in a learning and explorative atmosphere.

Lightning talks

During CycleConf every participant will have an opportunity to share something in a 5-minute format. You will be able to register your lightning talk during the conference.

Tickets

Our aim is to keep CycleConf to accessible and affordable. So we are happy to announce 1000 SEK ticket price for students and 2000 SEK ticket price for the rest of us! We also offer day passes at 700 SEK each.
