The functional reactive programming style approaches application logic by turning data flows into composable entities called observables. This is useful in the backend, but it can be leveraged in the front end, too. If we consider UI events from user as value streams we can express all of our UI logic as combinations of observables. Join this presentation to find out a new way of building user interfaces.

With Git you can make it look like you’re the perfect programmer who never makes a mistake! In this fast paced, terminal driven session, learn advanced techniques for undoing almost anything with Git. Starting from the safety of a revert, we’ll dabble with commit –amend, three types of reset and the dreaded reflog. We’ll also look at rebase -i and how to undo things like a merge commit or even a fast forward merge.

The conventional wisdom of multi-platform mobile development comes down to two choices: write all your complex logic at least twice or settle for a slow, non-native experience for your users. Come learn how Dropbox has embraced a third option, where fast, cross-platform code in C++ is married to a smooth, native UI for the best of both worlds.
