Building Apps with Electron - Felix Rieseberg

Sebastian first met Felix as an open source contributor to Ghost, and was both impressed by his good-natured attitude and his amazing Electron skills.

Knowing that Felix is already a seasoned speaker, we thought immediately of him when putting together the program for our conference. Needless to say, Felix proved himself to be as companionable as we knew him, and delivered one of the best live-coding talks we have ever seen. Enjoy!
