17:30 – Doors open, food and drinks 🍽

18:00 – A quick hello from our sponsors

18:10 – Welcome to the Future! Saving the human race with gusto, antigravity and GraphQL! – Joris van de Donk

When GraphQL burst onto the scene, we were promised salvation from various evils, such as the necessity to make multiple round-trip requests to our backends to be able to render our slick UIs. We were promised a developer experience nothing else could match. And yet, few have dared to try and tame the beast... Now that the Earth is getting colder and more difficult to inhabit every single day, we must put our fears aside, be brave, and ask ourselves the question: can GraphQL save the human race from utter extinction? Together, we shall examine GraphQL's various features in an attempt to answer this exact question. No pressure!

18:45 – Music 101 with JS Bach – Craig Spence

🎶 MUSIC 🎶 is a powerful, dynamic programming language, which can be used to create truly transformative experiences! Unfortunately, it’s been hindered by convoluted syntax and centuries of technical debt, which can lead to some performance issues…

🎷🎺🎻 Let’s tear music apart, and use a little bit of physics 🏹, a little bit of math 📊, and a whole lot of JavaScript 💻 to re-invent the building blocks of the greatest hits of the last 400 years 🎹! Together we will re-implement the primitive components of musical theory, like pitch ⚾️, rhythm 🥁 and harmony 🎤, and discover yet another reason to prefer composition over inheritance.

19.15 – Let's mingle

20.00 – Doors close
