19:00-19:25 Networking over drinks and pizza

19:25-19:30 Welcome words

19:30-20:00 Beyond Paradigms / Luciano Ramalho

Is Go object oriented without inheritance? It has closures, but is it functional? The modern approach to learning languages focuses on features, not paradigms. This talk names key language features, how they affect design and coding patterns, and shows in practice how features relate to idiomatic code.

20:00-20:30 Announcements, HR lost & found, break

20:30-21:00 Go and Write Some Readable Code / Grigory Petrov

How often do we say "this code is impossible to change, it should be rewritten"? Sadly, the code in question can be our creation from a few years ago. What can we do to make the code more readable? To address this painful question I will dig into neurophysiology, cognitive intuition and source code, the origin of software complexity problem and how we can deal with it. The talk will follow decomposition, different ways to set navigation beacons within our code, how useful identifiers are crafted and how types are used as traps for future errors. Finally, I will talk about a "gradual" code writing technique that is not limited to a well-known "gradual typing".

21:00-21:30 Panel: Code Readability and Communication / Elena Grahovac, Grigory Petrov, Luciano Ramalho, Bill Kennedy

21:30-end Networking
