We are very proud to announce that our CTO and founder Antti Ala-Ilkka will be one of the speakers at the Reaktor Dev Day, which will take place in Helsinki on the 26th of September 2014, at the Telakka Event Center.

Reaktor Dev Day is “a conference for developers by developers. It brings together the programming scene and its hottest speakers in a laid-back and friendly environment.” Antti will share his views on why speed matters on today’s web, and illustrate his ideas with some evidence from his practical experience, including the architecture of AddSearch. Here’s the short summary:
