19.30 Modern Web APIs - with NodeJS & TypeScript by Manuel Rauber

Manuel RauberFull-Stack-Devleopment! Modern frontends are using Single-Page Applications like Angular or React communicating with some light-weight Web APIs in the background. Thanks to Node.js we can speak one language in both worlds: JavaScript … or even TypeScript! Within this session we want to take a look at building modern and light-weight Web APIs based on Node.js with TypeScript and connect to a database using an ORM called SequelizeJS. A few lines of code are needed to create a “next generation” Web API.

20.15 With a little help from machines - tooling and AI by Christian Heilmann, London, UK

Christian HeilmannIt is tough to get people excited about the web and its technologies these days. For us who work with it, there are many cool things to do, but for investors and users the whole story of open and world-wide seems boring. It is time to understand that a lot of what we have achieved and will achieve will be for us exclusively. In this talk Chris Heilmann will show how great our tooling has become, how we can teach the next generation of developers to start with helpers in place and what AI, machine learning and deep learning can do for us to build more human interfaces.

Chris Heilmann has dedicated a lot of his time making the web better. Originally coming from a radio journalism background, he built his first web site from scratch around 1997 and spent the following years working on lots of large, international web sites.

He then spent a few years in Yahoo building products and explaining and training people including Yahoo Answers, Search, Local and Maps. He then worked at Mozilla moving HTML5 support forward and advocating Firefox OS as an open alternative to closed mobile systems. Chris wrote two and contributed to eight books on web development and wrote many articles and hundreds of blog posts for Ajaxian, Smashing Magazine, Yahoo, Mozilla, ScriptJunkie and many more. He also wrote the Developer Evangelism Handbook in use in many companies to coach evangelists. He is currently working with the Microsoft Edge team as a Program Manager for Developer Outreach
