  1. Jad Joubran - Secrets of Native-Like PWAs

    You can make any website a Progressive Web App, but how can you give it that native look and feel? During this talk, we’ll cover the pillars for native-like PWAs, as well as multiple UX & performance strategies such as the app update process, code splitting, advanced app shells, push notifications & more. These techniques will make your PWA indistinguishable from a native app, while taking advantage of the benefits of the web.

  2. Paul Lewis - Custom Web Shadow Elements, or Whatever…

    Depending on who you ask, Web Components are either the best thing or the most irrelevant update to the web platform in the past few years. Why is that? Let’s take a look at why there’s such a range of opinions, and the cases where they’re actually a good fit.

  3. Jeremy Keith & Remy Sharp - How We Built the World Wide Web in Five Days

    The World Wide Web turned 30 years old this year. To mark the occasion, a motley group of web nerds gathered at CERN, the birthplace of the web, to build a time machine. The first ever web browser was, confusingly, called WorldWideWeb. What if we could recreate the experience of using it …but within a modern browser! Join (Je)Remy on a journey through time and space and code as they excavate the foundations of Tim Berners-Lee’s gloriously ambitious and hacky hypertext system that went on to conquer the world.

  4. Diana Mounter - Component API Design and the Developer Experience

    Whether you’re a designer or engineer, everyone interacts with the API of your design system so it’s important to make this a great experience. We all have difficult decisions to make when designing systems—what should be a variation vs a new components, which props should we make available, how should we share theme values such as color and typography, what should we name things, and how do we make this all easy and efficient to use? At GitHub we’re building design systems to support web applications like github.com—serving 31 million developers, to one-off marketing sites for conferences, and everything in between. I’ll talk about how we build an API that enables consistency, yet offers flexibility when we need it; and how to to deliver a great developer experience.

  6. Lea Verou - The Web Design Cheat Code: Using SVG to Bridge CSS’ Gaps

    We often think of SVG as primarily useful for graphics, icons, and interactive visualizations. What if I told you that there is a number of ways to take advantage of SVG for styling, in order to accomplish things that CSS still only dreams of? This talk is chock-full of practical examples, taught in Lea’s trademark live coding style, as well as the caveats of every technique presented.

  7. Alex Russell - The Mobile Web: MIA

    Responsive Design didn’t work, at least not the way we hoped it would. How do we know? Nearly a decade into the new reality of mobile eating everything, the web is a shrinking, bit-player in the future of computing. We made our viewports smaller, but forgot to reduce everything else. What would our content be like if we shrunk everything to meet the constraints of mobile? And would it be enough to turn the tide? This talk explores those questions.

  9. Systematic Career Documentation - Part 1 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    This cast tells you how to create and use a Career Management Document as a key part of your career management system.

    We’ve often mentioned the need for everyone to have a Career Management Document, but we’ve never dedicated a whole cast to what it is, and how and when to use it. This cast sets out to rectify that.

    In essence the Career Management Document (or CMD) is where you keep your record of your career. It’s never seen by anyone but you, and it’s not your resume. Having a CMD is not enough though. We need to use it as part of an entire system of Career Documentation which results in an effective resume.

  10. Why Is CSS So Weird?

    Love it or hate it, CSS is weird! It doesn’t work like most programming languages, and it doesn’t work like a design tool either. But CSS is also solving a very weird and unique problem: What does it mean to "design" in a medium that is appears on everything from tablets, laptops, and TVs to braille readers, watches, and headphones?

    As the web becomes more powerful and complex, it’s important to ask: how did we get here, and where are we headed?
