In May we're hosting another NewStore TechTalk and this evening Sau Sheong, our guest from far Singapore, will talk about programming complexity and modelling complex systems with Go and React.
Complexity science is the study of complex systems, systems with many parts that interact to produce global behaviour that cannot easily be explained in terms of interactions between the individual parts. Complexity science includes many different areas of study, including game theory, emergence, network science and others. This is a basic talk that provide a sample of ideas in complexity science, and dives into a couple of well-known areas using agent-based modeling.

He is active in the Ruby and Go developer communities have have contributed to open source projects and spoke at meetups and conferences.
