Adam Bar

I started my developer career 10 years ago with simple PHP websites. Later I touched on .NET, Ruby, Java and Objective-C, but I have always come back to the Web that I value for its openness and accessibility for everyone. And even though I admire simple structures, simple rules and order, which are often hard to find on the Web, these are Web technologies that are my programming passion. Daily I work on versatile web apps in Bright Inventions and take care of my website that aims to review device integration capabilities of the web - whatwebcando.today

    Robot Apocalypse

    What does the future hold for humankind? Is it possible to build machines that are conscious, or that can evolve to become conscious? Many leading-edge thinkers say that it is, and are expecting it to happen - they call it, the Singularity. Can the Singularity happen? If it does, will it be in our lifetimes and will the machines rise and destroy us? Can we live together, must we destroy them, or is there another way? Let's find out! In this session, we'll walk through today's bleeding edge technology, where you'll learn about both delightful and frightening robots and AI systems, as well as how they are more commonplace than you think. You'll see how we interact with them now and how we will in the future. They're everywhere doing everything from fun to medicine. You'll get a sneak peek at all the latest and greatest technological advances in many fields - robotics, AI, computing, cognitive, health, military, and other sciences, to see what the future of advanced technology may bring. The robots just might rise up, so In the meantime, sit back, watch the show, but most importantly, be NICE to your computers!

    SAFE apps with F# web stack

    Modern web stacks often involve more than one programming language. SAFE on the other side offers an end-to-end solution, with static typing safety and other powerful language capabilities on both server and client side in plain F#. In this talk you will learn about the possibilities of the stack during a live demo. After starting a SAFE project from scratch, you will develop new features by sharing common F# code between client and server and observe changes using hot module replacement.

    Real-time capabilities in ASP.NET Core web applications beyond (or besides) SignalR

    As the title suggests, this talk won’t be about SignalR (it might be mentioned, but that’s all). It will walk through native technologies like WebSockets, Server-Sent Events and Push API based notifications. It will show how to use them, compare them and suggest when to use which by exploring their strong and weak sides.
