This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays king, ruins town, And beats high mountain down
In this tutorial we’ll take a deep dive into how Web Components (A collection of technologies that includes Shadow DOM, HTML Templates, Custom Elements, and HTML Imports) can be used as building blocks to construct a functioning web application.
We’ll review how each of the technologies under the web components umbrella work, how they work together, and how x-tags makes use of them to make modular, lightweight components. Special attention will be given to building applications for mobile devices with environments such as Firefox OS, Chrome OS, and PhoneGap.
This talk is going to deconstruct some examples, explain the mathematical reasoning behind, reveal a few lesser known things about certain CSS properties and show how using a preprocessor can help with keeping these demos extremely customizable while actually writing very little code.
With the introduction of HTML5 the way we look at the browser has completely changed, but what has happen to our development workflow?
In this talk I take you through the history of web tooling and challenge the assumptions our current generation of tooling is build upon. You will realize that your web development workflow is completely broken, and that you over the years, have been making it gradually worse and more complex by adding more tools to the chain.
It’s time to rethink our tooling.
A focus on performance can make the difference between the success or failure of a web app. This talk will go through concrete examples of how the Mobile Gmail and Docs teams focused on performance when building their apps. Some of these techniques are well known, but others have not been shared before…
The stratospheric rise in mobile subscribers, devices, services and apps has led to an even bigger explosion in the lack of understanding of how to design, develop and most importantly, recognize new opportunities with not only these new devices, but new use cases altogether.
Let’s step through the processes to help identify content strategies, design workflows and forecasting methods to unlock the true potential of mobile, not only for apps, but for the web and new channels of communication altogether.
With copious examples drawing on various novel, weird and wacky combinations of upcoming features, I’ll show you how to go wild with ES6 and, in the process, demonstrate that play is healthy and censorship is regressive.
