🗣Building inclusive Open Source communities

Sander Spies

Independent

As a developer always focusing on the reader of the code. Fell in love with React in 2013 because of the simplification it brought to state management. Regrets asking for Flux. Big fan of CSS-in-JS and currently lost in OCaml. Strongly believes in the importance of moving developers to Reason as it removes a lot of the burdens that JavaScript developers face daily. Can be blamed for several things in Reason like JSX. Reason fan since day one.

Javi is Tech Lead at Webflow. He also helps improving the Reason IDE tooling, in particular the OCaml language server and the VSCode extension. Came to Reason led by the interest in finding better ways to create and maintain software. Stayed for the community (and OCaml!). Excited about what will happen when Reason and BuckleScript keep removing boundaries between native and web.
