Florian Klampfer

Frontend Engineer

Florian builds web apps that are fast, reliable, and have working back buttons. He is excited about browser tech and the future of the web. He’s also a fan of functional programming, has worked with Clojure and ClojureScript, and watched every talk by Rich Hickey. He started programming at 14 and hasn’t stopped since. When he’s not thinking about software, he’s probably thinking about finance or investing instead.

    A Simplified Prediction Market Interface via Implicit Kelly Bets
