Modern web development and accessibility
Christina Papadimitriou, Software Engineer @Unify
Nadia Markadoni, Web Developer @Unify
Nowadays we focus mostly on building cool web sites and web applications following UX design principles, but have you ever consider if these web sites and apps can be used by people with disabilities? Could a visually impaired person use them? In this session we will talk about accessibility and how to make your site or app accessible, what are the challenges and how you can overcome them.

Cycle.js – Functional reactive UI framework
Nikos Kalogridis, senior software engineer @Tripsta
Managing application state, asynchronous events and manually updating the DOM is hard. Cycle.js is a minimal framework that combines a pure functional programming style, immutability, and state management using Observables and Virtual DOM rendering. In this presentation we take a mild introduction to why that might be interesting.
