The Post-MVC Age
with Maarten Hus, Developer at 42
Libraries and frameworks such as Angular 2.0, React and Ember are embracing a new paradigm centered around Components. A Component wraps the Model, View and Controller into a single entity, violating MVC conventions at every turn.
Ideas such as Flux and Reactive Programming have changed our way of thinking about an application’s state. They have radically departed from the principles of MVC in the way entities communicate, and how state is changed and maintained.
At the end of this talk you will know what Flux and Reactive Programming are and how they differ from MVC.
Busy Developer’s Guide to MeteorJS

Pure Functional Programming in Excel
with Felienne Hermans, Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology
This talk is about the world’s most popular programming language…Java? Python? COBOL? No… Excel!
Excel somehow hits the sweet spot between being powerful enough to run entire domains like finance and insurance, but also easy enough to attract a huge audience. Why is that?
In this talk we’ll explore some of the mechanisms that make spreadsheets so powerful, while implementing a few interesting mathematical problems in spreadsheets.
While doing that, you might learn some (functional) programming concepts too, as we’ll talk about sorting, dynamic programming and lambdas.
