JSFoo 2015

The future of JavaScript

JSFoo is India’s premier JavaScript conference. This year is the fifth edition.

The theme for the 2015 edition is the future of JavaScript.

We are looking for talks and workshops from academics and practitioners who are at the cutting edge of developments in JavaScript.

We want to hear all about:

  • Advances in browser JavaScript
  • JavaScript in hardware
  • Functional JavaScript
  • Cutting edge developments, including original work
  • ES6

Editorial panel

  • Santosh Rajan, founder Geekskool
  • Shwetank Dixit, Extensions Program Manager and Web Evangelist, Opera Software
  • Sindhu S, Recurse Center alumni
  • Zainab Bawa, editorial coordinator, co-founder at HasGeek

Commitment to Open Source

HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.

Workshops

If you are interested in conducting a hands-on session on any of the topics falling under the themes described above, please submit a proposal under the workshops section. We also need you to tell us about your past experience in teaching and/or conducting workshops.

BOF sessions

If you are interested in doing an unconference during the breakout sessions, propose a topic which will be of interest to the community.

Important dates:

Deadline for submitting proposals: 31 July 2015
Conference dates: 18-19 September
Workshops: 15, 16, 17 and 20 September

Deep Dive into Rxjs Observables.

Submitted Jul 28, 2015

Observables in Rxjs are the founding bricks of Functional Reactive Programming in Javascript. Being an enumerable future and containing async behaviour are what define Observables. Lets get a step closer to why Observables are so powerful. Tools like composition and higher order fns are needed to use Observables. Immutability is the state that we achieve in the process. I will explain each of these aspects in greater detail. Using Observables in day to day programming is the primary focus of the talk.

Outline

The plan for the talk is as follows
1. Functional javascript - the basics, higher order functions, a questionable explanation of monads.
2. Observables - The enumerable you can use functionally to handle series of asynchronous input.
3. Immutable data - Maintain pureness of code with example.
4. Everyday usage - Opportunities for using Observables anywhere. Native or framework wrapped javacript.

Requirements

  • A good understanding of Javascript.
  • An understanding of functional programming.(map, filter, reduce, curry)

Speaker bio

I’m a javascripter from the past 4 years. I have written a lot of bad code, before I figured out the common mistakes I make writing declaratively and maintaining a ton of state. Discovering functional programming, brought a sudden and huge improvement to my code and my reasonability around it. I also found out that writing functional code is definitely way more difficult than non-functional programming, that your functions have to follow laws and your data can never change. But while im still riding this learning curve, I am constantly becoming a much more productive programmer inspite of myself! FRP ftw!
