Secures your edge
Systems Engineer at Cloudflare and Technical Development
Moving application auth to the edge
Secure your application by handling auth at the edge - before a user hits your application. This would be primarily about building out a login/signup flow that happens at the edge, before a request reaches your app - which would only see user profile information for the currently logged in user.

Establishing the rules for a universal design system
In this talk we will explore the challenges and opportunities of creating a common language for web, android, and iOS components. Defining a set of universal guiding principles can help with establishing consistency and ease of use across the various devices which, in turn, provides a better user experience for the product. Through case studies and best practices we will provide actionable insights and practical tips that take into account the differences of each technology. Join us to learn how to establish the rules for a design system that works across all platforms.

Adaptive Music for the Web With RNBO
Max is a visual programming language for music. It has been around since the 1980s, and has been used by countless electronic musicians and sound artists to build musical instruments, installations, and generative compositions. Since a few months ago it has also been possible to also run Max programs in web browsers, using a new runtime called RNBO. This makes Max a viable new option for those of us who are interested in delivering adaptive sound and music experiences on the web.
In this talk we’ll make some generative music using Max’s visual interactive patching environment. We’ll then bundle the music system into a webapp that lets anyone run it in their web browser. In the process we’ll get a taste of what Max is like, what it can do, and how it slots into web projects.
Creator of Angular.js, Qwik
As CTO, Miško oversees the technology division that powers the Builder.io applications and software. Before joining Builder.io, he created Open Source platforms for Google, including Angular, AngularJS and was co-creator of Karma. While at Google, he brought a testing culture there with his blog. Before focusing on making the web better, he believes testing is the key to success.
Miško started his career designing digital circuits and moved to databases, full-stack development and finally, front-end frameworks, giving him a unique perspective. He understands all of the layers from the web down to a transistor. In addition to Google, he worked for tech powerhouses Adobe Systems and Sun Microsystems.
He holds an MS/BS from Rochester Institute of Technology and an MBA from Santa Clara University.
Comparative study of reactivity across frameworks and implications for Resumability
All frameworks have reactivity. Change your state, and the UI updates accordingly. But how does it actually work under the hood? How do the frameworks learn enough about your application to enable reactivity? What are the implications of these choices, and how do frameworks compare to each other in how they are implemented? But most importantly, are these choices compatible with resumability going forward or are we stuck with Hydration forever?
Server/Client unified execution model with Qwik
Creator of Capri
Author of Capri, node-dev, oazapfts, typed-rpc, react-api-query, classname-variants and lots of other small modules.
You might not need a meta framework
In this talk we will explore how to generate static sites without a meta framework. We’ll learn how to implement partial hydration and how to get live previews in a CMS without a build step. In short, we’ll learn about the ideas behind Capri and how they can help you build a carbon-friendly website.
Creates universal design systems
Creating universal design systems across web and mobile with Utility First Styling
Striking the right balance between consistency and platform-specific user experiences is essential for successfully creating a design system for web and mobile. In this talk, we’ll explore how to create a universal design system that caters to the unique requirements of both platforms without losing their distinct identities. After all, nobody wants websites that look like apps, and apps that look like websites. We’ll dive into the challenges and solutions of unifying design elements while acknowledging the fundamental differences between web and mobile interfaces. We’ll take inspiration from utility first styling, and discuss how to establish consistent design tokens and primitives that enable a seamless cross-platform experience.

Building AI-powered user interfaces
As web engineers, we build user interfaces that make using our products simple, understandable and delightful. Over the years, we’ve built a toolkit of frameworks, patterns and practices to do so.
In the next few years, more and more products will be built on top of Artificial Intelligence technologies, such as generative models like OpenAI’s GPT-3. In this world, which of our tools will remain helpful, and which problems will require new solutions?
In this talk, I’ll explore some of the challenges our existing frameworks and mental models have in the age of generative AI. I’ll also introduce novel ways of thinking about user interfaces that we’ve discovered while designing and building an AI-powered web application for serious writers.

Hacking meaningful connections with humans by talking to (toy) rodents
Building weird little hardware projects has provided a space for me to feel technically competent when I have felt like an imposter. After being diagnosed with ADHD last year, I realized that hacking on hardware has been a sanctuary where I could explore my social awkwardness and human connection. I’ve been experimenting to find out if I can turn unexpected and impractical soft objects into input devices that can lower my barriers to sustaining meaningful connections with others. In this talk, I’ll share my journey of building two explorations so far: a giant soft pompom that sends AI-generated motivational but esoteric art when it’s hugged and a toy hamster that I talk to that sends my voice messages (in a high-pitched, but oddly therapeutic voice) to my long-distance partner. Whether you’re neurodivergent or not, I hope to inspire you to start a project even if you feel intimidated by the technical details and find joy in the journey rather than the destination.
Pekka Enberg is a Co-Founder at ChiselStrike and a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Helsinki. Pekka is a veteran software engineer with two decades of experience spanning from backend development to database and operating system development. His research interests include distributed systems, databases, and operating systems. Pekka’s current research addresses the need for modern applications to take full advantage of hardware capabilities by eliminating the bottlenecks in operating system abstractions with the parakernel model.
Previously, Pekka has worked on the Linux kernel as a dynamic memory allocator maintainer and an individual contributor to Intel/AMD x86 and RISC-V architecture support, virtualization, filesystems, and more. Pekka attended the annual invite-only Linux kernel developer summit in 2009 and 2011. He also worked on the OSv unikernel, an operating system designed to run efficiently on the cloud, with results published at the USENIX ATC conference in 2014. After the OSv unikernel, Pekka worked at ScyllaDB developing an Apache Cassandra-compatible low-latency, high-throughput distributed database.
Beyond Cloud Computing: Towards the Edge
Edge and serverless computing are emerging as a go-to solution for many applications and use cases that require low latency and scalability. In this talk, we will examine how edge and serverless are different from the cloud computing paradigm, their impact on your application’s compute and data, and some of the challenges ahead.

Everything's better with friends
Software is best when shared; with friends and colleagues, in realtime, across the world. It’s traditionally been hard and expensive to do this, but with the advent of edge computing and advances in CRDTs and the like, building multiplayer applications is now accessible to mere mortals like myself. In this talk, I’ll share some of the work I’ve been doing in the space, and we’ll have a demo to play with and break!
