    Pizza & Beverages & Networking



    Kirill Knysh | Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    JavaScript is no longer about animating DIVs and sending forms. On the example of UI development for set-top boxes (like UPC Horizon, Orange TV decoder), I’ll tell a story about our evolution of JS usage on devices not suitable at all for it (or?).

    Kirill Knysh, Engineer at EPAM Systems Amsterdam, 4+ years of experience of STB UI development, passionate to coding.


    Andrei Vouchanka | Minsk, Belarus

    Tricky JS and WebGL practices to achieve the best performance on mobile. We'll speak about set of interesting practices our team applied on our project to achieve lower network payload with help of run-length encoding, reduce time to first paint and memory pressure to minimum using lazy iterators, being 60FPS even on android after implementing own light-weight WebGL library instead of using Pixi.js

    Andrei Vouchanka, the Software developer at EPAM Systems. Passioned about front-end development, bleeding edge web-technologies, js performance, public speaking and knowledge sharing. Constantly experimenting with new stuff, messing around with pet projects for fun

  • 19:40   WHO IS THE CLIENT

    Marcelo Gomes | Gdansk, Poland

    It will be about how the browser´s Render Engine works and how this knowledge can improve the performance on front-end.

    Some points to be discussed:

    • Is the DOM really slow?

    • The Virtual DOM and is it the solution for performance on DOM updates?

    • The new Performance tab of chrome and how we can use it to measure front-end performance.

    Marcelo Gomes works with front-end development since 2009. He likes playing chess, playing drums and making questions. He is from Brazil but currently lives in Gdansk.


    Alexander Gerasimov | Berlin, Germany

    Alex is employed as a front-end engineer at, earning just enough to sustain his functional programming addiction. In his spare time, he teaches programming and creates educational games with his hacker friends.

  • 20:40   CSS QUICKDRAW

    Alexander Gerasimov

    Your CSS is fast, but are you? Can you survive in the Wild West of front-end? Test your reflexes and stylesheet skills in a multiplayer game. Compete against your friends and colleagues to prove you have true CSS grit!

    Please bring your laptop!
