Andre Staltz
I'm enthusiastic about reactive programming, functional programming, frontend, mobile, and the decentralized web. I have authored the Cycle.js framework, and have been a core contributor to RxJS. Currently, I am helping build an open source peer-to-peer social network with Scuttlebutt, while supporting my existing open source libraries like Cycle.js and others.
