ReactiveConf 2017

ReactiveConf is a two days conference about functional and reactive programming that takes place in Bratislava ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ, at the Old Market Hall. I attended the conference with three workmates from Ulabox, @sospedra_r, @juanmaorta and @markcial. The venue was organized in two stages: the Main Stage and the Discovery Stage.

Getting started

The conference day started with the registration, a backpack with a cool t-shirt, socks and stickers was given to every attendee.

ReactiveConf 2017 Main Stage

Venue and talks

The Old Market was a comfortable and big place to watch the Main Stage talks. Upstairs there was a big space with TV's to follow the live-stream, a ton of bean bags and a few XBOX's to play with ๐ŸŽฎ.

Discovery Stage was located in another place called Ateliรฉr Babylon, within a 5 minute walk from the Old Market Hall. This stage was too small, at the second day we had to turn back to the Old Market, due to the lack of space, losing the opportunity to watch the "Understanding Webpack from inside out" talk. ๐Ÿ‘Ž

The food was very nice ๐Ÿ—. A few serving points were distributed along the Market Hall. Also, the schedule was very well planned the number of breaks helped to follow the presentations easily!

In terms of talks the quality and technical level was good. But with some speakers I thought that they were selling us their product instead of training us. Also I noticed that some talks, IMHO were offtopic according to the Reactive paradigm.

Having said that, these are my favourite talks โญ๏ธ:

All talks were recorded and live streamed through the ReactiveConf youtube channel. Be sure to take a look into it! ๐Ÿ‘‡

Final thoughts

I learnt a lot of things at the venue and I really enjoyed the great atmosphere of the conference. Actually I've met a ton of friendly people!

Huge thanks to Ulabox ๐Ÿ’– for giving us the oportunity to attend ReactiveConf! ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ โœˆ๏ธ
