Conference Description:

Technology is accelerating at an ever increasing pace, and if you work on the web, itís almost impossible to keep up. Join us for an afternoon of talks, presented in association with Pixel Pioneers, covering some of the most exciting developments in web design and development today.

We will explore a range of best practices and cutting-edge techniques, including how functional JavaScript may change the future of computing, how to create digital products for a myriad of devices and platforms, and how to focus on the user at all times to create inclusive experiences for all.

This event is for everyone in the industry, but in particular web and UX designers, front- and back-end developers, engineers, and product managers.

You'll definitely know some of the speakers ó follow us on Twitter to stay up to date with the full schedule.

Here's what we have confirmed so far:

A Functional JavaScript Field Guide

by Katie Fenn, software engineer at npm

JavaScript is a language of two flavours: object-oriented and functional. Some would say functional is JavaScript's dominant flavour, but only recently have we started exploring its uses fully. In this talk, I will show how lessons from functional programming take advantage of JavaScript's better features, and may even change the future of computing.

I will introduce the basic ingredients of functional programming and explain why embracing them makes JavaScript easier to work with. The talk will be aimed at JavaScript developers of all experience levels and backgrounds.

A Field Guide to Cross-Platform Mobile Development

by Zahra Traboulsi, iOS and backend developer at Bloomberg

Apple vs Android: arguably consumer tech's most well-trodden battleground of the smartphone era. Rapidly-changing market shares and user preferences often mean double the trouble for mobile development teams, leading them to seek sanctuary in cross-platform development.
