Reflex: A New Reactive Programming Language at Facebook
YOW! 2017 Sydney
Facebook is developing a new experimental programming language called Reflex. Its main characteristic is its “spreadsheet semantics”: the runtime recomputes the state of the program incrementally when changes occur. This talk will cover the basics of the language as well as how things work under the hood.
Julien has spent the last 6 years writing tools for developers at Facebook. His main contribution was Hack (a gradually typed variant of PHP). His current work revolves around reactive programming.
