NewCrafts

Raising the bar

International software development conference for professional developers who care about quality code and bettering their practices

« I’m not a great programmer; I’m just a good programmer with great habits. »  - Kent Beck



Never Stop Learning

A conference that doesn’t challenge your pre-conceptions is not a conference worth attending !

Created by developers for developers, NewCrafts is an independent and international event on software development held annually in Paris and Bordeaux.

Because we believe it is not enough for code to work, we want to question the way we develop, how we perceive our profession and craft.

For the 5th edition, we've planned two days of advanced talks, hands-on labs and open-session spaces accessible all day !

You might also be interested by pre-conference workshops by our renowned speakers on Wed. 16th of May. More info soon.

Andrea Magnorsky

ANDREA MAGNORSKY

Developer and co-founder (BatCat Games)

I ended up as a Software Developer, I am pretty sure there was no other viable option. My current technical interests are F#, games, programming languages and philosophy of computing . I really enjoy finding different ways to write code, sometimes for performance, other times for succinctness, sometimes, just because you can, there is no better way to learn than trying. When I am not working I tend to play with other languages or cats Conferences and meetups are a great way to learn more, so I try to help when I can to make them happen. For that reason I co-organise Functional Kats and GameCraft. I also speak at local and international conferences like CodeMesh, Progressive.Net, ProgF#, Lambda Days and many more.

Joe Armstrong

JOE AMSTRONG

Erlang Co-Inventor

Joe Armstrong is the principle inventor of the Erlang programming Language and coined the term "Concurrency Oriented Programming". He has worked for Ericsson where he developed Erlang and was chief architect of the Erlang/OTP system. In 1998 he left Ericsson to form Bluetail, a company which developed all its products in Erlang. In 2003 he obtained his PhD from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. The title of his thesis was "Making reliable distributed systems in the presence of software errors." Today he is semi-retired but works part time as Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

Bodil Stokke

BODIL STOKKE

Functional Programming Prophet

Born into an aristocratic Russian-German family, Bodil traveled widely around the Soviet Union as a child. Largely self-educated, she developed an interest in computer science during her teenage years. According to her later claims, in 1989 she embarked on a series of world travels, visiting Europe, the Americas, and India. She alleged that during this period she encountered a group of mathematical adepts, the "Haskell Language and Library Committee," who sent her to Glasgow, Scotland, where they trained her to develop her powers of category theory. Both contemporary critics and later biographers have argued that some or all of these foreign visits were fictitious, and that she spent this period writing JavaScript.

Jessica Kerr

Developer, @Atomist. Panelist, @greaterthancode.

Jessica Kerr "speaks with the authority of an experienced software engineer and the infectious enthusiasm of a 10-year-old telling you about magic." After ten years in Java she discovered the big wider world of programming through F#, Scala, Clojure, and now Elm. She speaks about functional programming, property-based testing, and juggling complexity. In real life, she works on the data pipeline at Stripe and raises two daughters in St. Louis, MO.
