The javascript train does not seems to stops, and with the largest developer community ever to exist - github is exploding with new ideas and approaches.
Javascript always been multi-paradigm language but there has been a bloom of new declarative libraries and techniques over the past few years, partly due to libraries like React and partly due to new syntax introduced into javascript.

On this session In this we plan to discuss the difference between the imperative programming and declarative one, understand how write each and when to prefer one over the other.

The session will be held by Gal Noy, a veteran fullstack Node.js developer and engineer at heart.
The session would be followed by a review of a code base implemented with a multi-paradigm approach, for those who would like to run it locally please install Node.js (latest LTS), yarn and docker.

This session is aimed to javascript developers that are familiar with Node.js and its ecosystem, most of the examples and code source would be Node.js vanilla oriented but all the knowledge and techniques would be applied with pure vanilla javascript, so the notions and techniques should be relevant to all javascript developers.
