We believe in functional reactive programming. It makes us very happy, that React popularized FRP among the masses. We love React. In fact, we became the first agency in the world doing React development – our first React project began just a week after its release. However, it isn’t the only interesting technology out there. Back in 2015, we wanted to see sharing and cross-pollination of ideas from wider Reactive community, not only React. And we felt, something like that was missing. To change that, we decided to start a conference, where we would invite interesting and sometimes niche speakers representing the wide spectrum of modern functional technologies.
