Our Speakers

Haralampi Staykov , AKQA

Saving trees with Go

In our search for comfort, we often forget what we are sacrificing. We just accept the cost of our comfort as a given. While we are continuing to reinvent the web, we need to look into the foundation of computing and reconsider all the wasted CPU cycles. Haralampi Staykoy, Senior Technical Delivery Manager at AKQA, will try to convince you that selecting the right programming language and platform is as important as not taking a plastic bag from your local shop.

Simplicity is the key to speed

In these days of websites built on top of libraries built on top of frameworks built on top of hacks, have we lost our way? After all, users just want a site that works fast. It doesn't matter how beautiful it looks if no one sticks around long enough to get past the loading screen. Join Scott Van Looy, Technical Architect at AKQA, as he guides us through his process for building beautiful, creatively rich websites that load super-fast – with real-world proof.

Jasper Haggenburg , Q42

Building an isomorphic magazine

Most modern websites have lots of fancy client-side capabilities, but they also share a very unfortunate side effect: an empty DOM on initial render. While building an online magazine, we’ve decided to go another route. Thanks to React and Fluxible, we can render not only on the client, but also on the server, restoring some lost fundamentals that made the web such a great place. Jasper Haggenburg, Developer at Q42, will discuss how we did this and why Isomorpic JS is not just another buzzword.
