+There is no doubt that todays web applications continue to grow in
  12
+adoption, replacing their desktop counterparts in all areas of
  13
+computation. Essential to their growth is their ability to provide
  14
+near-native performance and rich user experiences. As these applications
  15
+grow in essential complexity, they also grow in accidental complexity
  16
+due to the imperative callback processing style found in most web
  17
+applications. The asynchronous nature of most of these applications also
  18
+further compounds the issues due to guarantees around message ordering,
  19
+and a level of indirection required in callbacks handling events.
  20
+
  21
+Functional reactive programming is one approach for mitigating
  22
+accidental complexity, using a declarative and composable data-flow
  23
+model. During this talk, we'll look at the history of functional
  24
+reactive programming, some JavaScript implementations of FRP, and
  25
+finally some ClojureScript implementations of FRP and examples on how to
  26
+get started with using functional reactive programming.
