Simplexity: Advanced TypeScript for pragmatic teams

Speaking on 18:00 at Beamery office
For experienced engineers, using advanced TypeScript concepts in your project can feel like a cheat-code for instant accuracy, reusability and efficiency. However, more junior engineers encountering these patterns for the first time might feel like they've been thrown into a boss-fight before they're ready.
In this talk, we'll dissect the thin line between clever code and collaborative chaos within development teams where not every engineer is a level 99 coding wizard. Using real-world scenarios, we'll revisit the timeless wisdom of keeping it simple in the hustle of tight deadlines and teamwork challenges.
