Simplified reactive & functional programming

Functional reactive programming brings numerous benefits by abstracting away the complexities of async programming in JS but is still underused due to its complexity for developers. This talk presents a new library named cells that introduces a simplified interface for reactive & functional programming.


Henri discovered web programming as a teenager and went on to build web technologies like the Opa language that was used at Facebook and pioneered the JSX syntax and strong static typing for web programming for which he received the French Ministry of Research Innovation Award. He holds a PhD in Machine Learning from Paris Sorbonne and is currently co-founder at OKcontract. Henri is a former member of the Advisory Committee at W3C and OWASP.
