Te Papa Wellington
Arrive before 9am to pick up your nametag and swag bag and mingle at Te Papa.
Find your seat and get ready for a great day of talks.
Key lessons I've learned from observing my daughter Charlie as she spends her days trying to understand how the world works.
Once you put something in the world, you cannot control how the message changes for different people, or throughout time. This talk is about communication in general, rather than just bikeshedding.
Stretch your legs, and have a snack and some coffee.
I think that programming languages are not merely (or even mainly) a technical facility, but rather a social one, and want to draw on my experience of laying the foundations of my own Open Source programming language to hopefully convince you of the same!
We'll have a look at some of the lesser known functional programming approaches you can use in Ruby.
Enjoy a catered lunch at Te Papa.
I'll share my journey of being part of this wild project and seeing it through from end to end.
This talk is about my quest to bring Ruby to the browser via WebAssembly. In it, I will introduce WebAssembly in a beginner-friendly way and explore the idea of alternative frontend languages, and walk through what's involved in making that a reality.
Stretch your legs and have a snack.
How flick is replacing the 'move fast and break things' mindset with one built on pattern libraries, high-quality code, and a passion for design systems.
This talk is all about improving and cleaning up your legacy code base and eventually pay off all (if not most) of your technical debts.
In the months since the Christchurch mosque attacks, I've been trying to understand how hate groups spread online, and what role those of us who build technology can and should do. This talk is a summary of what I’ve learned and what actions we can take about it.
