August @ Blendle

Posted on August 23, 2017

For our August meetup we will return to Utrecht where Blendle will host us once again. They have moved offices since the last time we were there, so be sure to come to the right spot :)

We'll have two talks:

Reactive programming from scratch - Thomas Visser: This talk covers the core concepts of reactive programming by looking at a minimalistic implementation in just a few dozen lines of code. The gained insights can be of help when adopting any of the popular reactive programming libraries to your own projects.

Building smooth and responsive UI with Texture - Eric Scheers: To keep its UI performant, Blendle became an early adopter of the Texture framework (formerly known as AsyncDisplayKit). Originally built to make it easy to keep complex UI smooth and responsive, it has grown spectacularly since its introduction and today includes a hybrid-declarative approach to building interfaces. I will give an introduction to the framework using examples from the Blendle app.

Schedule is as usual:

18:00 Pizza

19:00 Talks

Afterwards Drinks
