After all taxes, "Akademia Przyszłości" got 45269.03 PLN to spend on helping children get on the right track to a safe and successful future! Thank you for your contributions!
The net total we spent on organizing the conference was less than that, so we're proud to report over 100% efficiency. It's the contribution of our great sponsors and attendees, so congratulations - you did much more than just participate in a conference!

Do not forget to bring your ticket! Only registered attendees are allowed to enter the venue.
Reason is a new programming language heavily invested by Facebook. Frontend world is finally getting a safe, fast and fun language which can also work with React by default. This talk will answer some questions like: "Why should I care about Reason?", "What can Reason give me?" and "How can I start?".

Since frontend becomes more and more complex, we need to focus more on architecture than before. SOLID principles should be considered when creating a new component. As there are many ways we can structure component, we need to think about how we want to use it. Definitely, we want components to be reusable, but only to the degree that is reasonable. We want to build small components that can be used to build bigger concepts. Ideally, we want to build loosely coupled & highly cohesive components, so our system is easier to maintain and grow. In React components props can be treated like function arguments and that’s exactly the case for functional stateless components. How we define props, defines how a component can be reused. Even though I'll present samples using React, I believe those principles are valid for every system, which consists of reusable structures.
During this presentation I will show how and where we can use TensorFlow.js for solving Machine Learning problems and build interactive applications.
Testing is dull. Testing is boring. Testing is tiring. I'll write tests later. Developers have many excuses to avoid writing comprehensive test suites, checking each happy path and each edge case to ensure the software is going to run fine. However, some tests so complex structures, that manual listing every edge case seems impossible. Generative testing is a method which provides an effective way to test functions with many possible edge cases basing on a set of invariants and declarative schemas and may help in hardening production code.
What makes web accessibility such a struggle? Why following accessibility patterns may be a way through torment? If you have ever tried to answer that and still don't know, then this talk is for you. If you have never heard of an accessibility issues then again this talk is just for you.
The talk will cover a real life example of a modal-like customized component supporting keyboard events. Those events follow chosen accessibility rules. By modifying base assumptions and expected behaviour of the component, we will find and (attempt to) fix many problems and inconveniences.
Frequently, in order to fulfill demanding business requirements developers are forced to abandon good practices and follow unexplored paths. In case of accessibility this trend is clearly visible and quite common as it will be proven during the talk.
Snapchat's Filters and Apple's Animoji are one of the most famous examples of computer vision in popular applications. Based on complex algorithms, computer vision can be intimidating at the first time. Luckily for us, Web Developers, processing images and face detection are much easier to work with than before.
Mainly a domain of native apps, face detection is now available in our browsers. Thanks to modern web APIs and libraries, we are now able to process the image in real time on the front-end side. With face detection, you can go even a one step further and make the browser to recognize your face!
This talk will give you a brief overview of face detection concepts. I will show you some popular methods of detecting the face using the web camera and how to use them in your applications.
We have seen many benefits from introducing a microservice approach to our back-end architectures, but the UI layer is still often a monolithic app. Imagine a front-end development flow, with independent teams working on their parts separately and at their own pace, using their favorite tech stack. I would like to show you, that "micro frontends" is much more than a buzzword, and I bet on it becoming an important architectural approach in coming years. I will talk about a few possible tech stacks, focusing on how we can use web platform features to allow communication between micro-apps. Last but not least, I would love to share some thoughts on how my company benefits from this approach while rewriting a big internal app, having to still support the old one, and how we used a custom shell approach to make it possible.
If the concept of running one piece of code on your iPhone, Android and as a web app excites you, I think you might want to hear this talk. But be careful! Conference talks are usually meant to be spurs to dig into a new technology. This time I cannot promise you that.
Introduction to css-in-js approach based on 'emotion' library. In this presentation you will learn why BEM is not enough in terms of big React app. How to increase the readability of your components. Unit tests for css? Yes! With css-in-js and snapshot testing it is available. Pros and cons of using css-in-js.
Jira's new frontend codebase is quite young - it only has 2 years. Despite this it's growing pretty fast: currently repository has more than 1 million lines of code and 250 developers are working with it on a daily basis. In such a big codebase it is difficult to maintain the same architecture and standards as teams have different ideas of how their applications should look like. We needed to scale our development process and define practices which can help us build a world-class frontend product. Learn about our journey so far - the architecture of the product, rules which need to be respected, tools and scripts which help us adhere to the practices, our successes and obstacles that we had to overcome.
Software developer with .NET background, currently a full-time front-end developer at Netguru. Enthusiast of functional programming and code simplicity.
I'm an experienced developer with various programming skills, including both front-end and back-end. I see browsers as a complex environment with unlimited possibilities. Thus, I like to play with the latest APIs to see what browsers have to offer. Recently I experimented with WebVR, and as a result, I co-organised WebVR meetup in Warsaw. Now, I help with microConf meetup series, as a speaker and organiser.
I became a software engineer long time ago with a taste for programming. Currently I work mainly in the advertisement environment. It means that on daily basis I focus on implementation and maintenance of the ad stack products. While working for FANDOM in the Ad Engineering team I work mainly with frontend technologies but it does not mean that backend ones are not needed at all. To not constraint myself I got involved in a few machine learning projects in my current job. Moreover, as a second job or rather a hobby I am a full stack developer on the project which is about automation the apartment management. It is associated with design, implementation and maintenance whole service.
I am front-end developer with 10 years of professional experience, currently working at Nordcloud, where I am a part of R&D team. Web enthusiast, digging functional and reactive programming.

Frond-end developer with a tendency to perfectionism and pixel-perfection, making Jira a great product. Big fan of Elvis Presley.
I believe there is no silver bullet. Everyday I learn new things and test different tools to be able to pick right tool for the particular job. After gaining experience both in startups and enterprise companies, I obtained technical knowledge and understood that team work is key aspect. I focus on clean architecture and high code quality.
