As many of you know, I don't drink. Never really started, never acquired the taste, and now there are all sorts of self-reenforcing aspects of my life that don't fit with it, like bike commuting. Plus, as a small fund guy, it's a much cheaper way to life in NYC.
Obviously, that setup isn't going to work for most people--but you may have run into a situation where you wanted to limit your intake, decide if you should just leave your bike in the office after a party, etc.

Our Angular app took over a month to debug and release into production, due to the digest loop's slow performance, and two-way binding's tendency to hide data mutation. While replacing Angular directives with React components sped up performance, the need for immutable data and async handling led us to rewrite our app in ClojureScript. Our production Angular app died a slow death as development time gave way to unending bug-fixes. When the culprit became clear (two-way binding and unrestrained data mutation), we looked for functional alternatives. After testing out React, Mori, and JS-CSP, we went all-in with ClojureScript. The bulk of the talk will be a figwheel session of porting Angular services to Datascript entities, Angular directives to Reagent components, and Angular controllers to Core. We released v2 of our application ahead of schedule and bug-free.

SYNOPSIS: If I told you a team of 8 engineers had built the technology that would upend the American prescription medication landscape, you almost wouldn’t believe me. But over the past year, Blink Health has used simple tools and practices to create an effective continuous delivery pipeline, a scalable data warehouse, and automated testing system that will deliver affordable prescription medications to anyone who needs them. These tools and practices have allowed our small team to build, release, and iterate on a large product with minimal overhead spent on ops and tooling. Bio: Michael Thomas is the CTO of Blink Health. He has been building software for over 10 years that has scaled to millions of users. Before moving to NYC to start Blink, he built large scale platforms and lead engineering teams at three startups in LA (OpenMail, Scopely, and ScoreBig).
