19:00 - 20:00 Architecture, Front End and a Bit of Front-End Architecture - Jan Hein Hoogstad

Lisp isn’t a language, it’s a building material.” —Alan Kay.

Architecture teaches us that there is strong connection between the history of building materials and the actual structures that are built. Introducing philosophers Walter Benjamin and Peter Sloterdijk’s thoughts on the influence of materials on the practice and theory of building, I will draw a parallel between historical buildings (such as the Sagrada Família and the Chrysler Building) and the way we build front-end applications. We will discuss how using different languages and techniques leads to different artifacts, and explore specific patterns and principles from back-end development that we can use to build better architected front-end software.

After my talk, attendees will know: why and how front-end structures become increasingly complex, what software designers can take from the history of architecture, and a set of principles from back-end and distributed architecture to introduce into front-end architecture

20:00 - 21:00 Scala Days - Recap - Bart Schuller

Lunatech went to Scala Days last week In Berlin. Bart Schuller will give a recap of interesting things/talks happened there for us who couldn’t attend. See you there !
