18:00 - 18:40 A Key to Simplicity: Using often forgotten computer science subjects to simplify your code, by João R.G. Sampaio

Conditional clauses in programming can become big and complicated when not thought through properly. In this presentation I'll show how to take advantage of methods to simplify boolean algebra to improve your code readability and avoid race conditions.

Coding since childhood on a black and white TV connected to a Sinclair ZX-81, João is a programming aficionado that loves a well written piece of code. Right now, he works as a developer for LeoLabs, the Innovation Hub inside Gears of Leo.

18:50 - 19:40 Better performance for component-based web apps by
José Manuel Pérez

React, Vue.js and other component-based UI libraries are trendy these days. They improve developer ergonomics but can harm web performance with large bundles in SPAs. In this talk I will show how to use these libraries in combination with lazy-loading and code-splitting, so we get a performance boost on our sites.

José is a Software Engineer and Google Developer Expert working in Spotify. He loves using the web to create products and experiences that are great to use in every device and he also writes about these topics on twitter and his blog.
