Modern Javascript by Asim Hussain


If you are like me you learnt JavaScript randomly and without a plan, seeing what worked and learning a thing or two everyday.

However without a grasp of the deeper fundamentals you will hit quite a few confusing issues, introduce bugs, find it hard to read and understand other peoples code and won’t be considered a “Senior Developer”.

Angular Kickstart by Shmuela Jacobs


In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to get started with the most popular, cutting edge platform for (not only) web development.

It will give you the jumpstart you need to start developing with Angular: the basics, the syntax, the state of mind. We’ll emphasize best practices and offer useful resources.

Opening Keynote Talk: CSS (Variable) Secrets

 

You may have heard about CSS Variables (aka CSS Custom Properties), but think it’s not something you can use yet. Plus, you already have your preprocessor pipeline in place, why should you care? This talk will show how CSS Variables are much more powerful than static preprocessor variables and can be used today without compromising progressive enhancement. You will also learn several creative tips and tricks to take full advantage of them. As is customary with Lea’s CSS talks, expect a swath of live demos to demonstrate the material.

Talk Title: How I met your coverage threshold: The path to more valuable & enjoyable front-end testing

 

We’ve all been there. Front-end testing is a difficult challenge everyone faces, and lots of people tend to run away from. More often than not it’s fragile, brittle, and even useless.

In this presentation, Louay will talk about his experience in creating a team culture and a toolset that facilitates writing front-end tests for developers which are valuable and less fragile & flakey.

He’ll also discuss some tools and best practices that help with tracking and increasing tests and test coverage and he’ll demonstrate some examples of tests using react with redux and redux-saga.

Nick Balestra

Software Engineer at OpenTable

Nick Balestra

Nick is a Software Engineer. He currently works at OpenTable, writing Node and JavaScript applications at scale. Co-author of create-cycle-app and redux-cycles. Life is like an npm install.

Talk Title: Breaking the frontend monolith.
While breaking the monolith into micro-services is a common approach for the backend, most frontends are still running as a monolithic application. Therefore building, deploying and consuming frontend components across a diversity of teams and web applications can be a daunting task, especially at scale. To address this issue, at OpenTable we enable fast-moving teams to easily build and deploy front-end components using OpenComponents, an open-source, battle tested, front-end microservice architecture for painless component delivery.

Usually, micro-service architectures are unopinionated by nature, leaving tech-stack decisions to service onwers. During this session I’ll explain how OpenComponents works, how do we use it at OpenTable and how we allows teams to build frontend components with different client-side technologies that seamless work together.

Talk Title: Get a grid for flex’ sake

 

With Flexbox and CSS grid layout your layout possibilities on the web change fundamentally. Finally you are able to write semantic HTML, keep a good structure and let the magic of layout algorithms do the rest. In this live coding session, Stefan will show you core concepts beneath both layout technologies, how they work together and where limitations are. We also look at some fallbacks in case the browser base you have to support isn’t ready.

Talk Title: Reactive Type-safe WebComponents

 

You know the drill right? new cool framework/library appears… boom! new Datepicker in that framework follows and soon enough whole UI libraries, again and again….

It’s 2017 and it’s time to stop this madness once and for all! How you ask?

In this talk I will do an overview of component creation in terms of re-usability followed up with real life examples how to create performant, reactive, small and type-safe web components with tiny superpowered library called SkateJS.

Talk Title: The perfect stack is merely a door opener

 

Give us web developers a greenfield project, and we immediately start to discuss what technology stack and architecture is best suited for this particular problem space.

But how important are those decisions for the long-term success of the project? Not nearly as important as you might think. But then – what is?
In this talk, I’ll share my view on some of the (often overlooked) factors that can make or break a web project.

Talk Title: SPA, Isomorphic and Back to the Server: Our Journey With JS

 

We’ve been toying around with JS since 4 years, trying to figure out what’s the best approach to build mobile-friendly apps that would offer the best performances on mobile devices.
We first went SPA and then decided to take a different approach, as 3 years ago we decided to tackle our problems on mobile with an isomorphic application.
Today, we would like to guide you through years of that choice and why we decided to take a step back and go revamp our mobile website again, with server-side rendering and a pinch of React.

Spoiler alert: 30ms is considered slow.

Talk Title: Building realtime VR on the web

VR technology is going places ! But learning the tech stack for its implementation is still a challenge for many web developers. What if we could do some reverse engineering and build VR using just HTML with a chunk of JS !? Of course adding a realtime functionality with multi user capability to this recipe would only make it more delectable !

This talk will walk the audience through WebVR and what makes it different from regular VR. Further, it will introduce the A-Frame web framework that makes building VR apps terribly easy. All this along with the realtime backend provided by deepstream is more than enough to be able to easily build multi-user VR in just a few minutes.

I am a Software Engineer specialized in building applications using React and React Native. I also have a broad experience building native Android applications. As a personal experience, I built Audio Profiles which has reached 100k downloads in the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fnp.audioprofiles&hl=en) and it is still growing. I am currently merging both experiences (web and mobile) to try to bring the best of both worlds to the users.

In my free time I basically love building apps, contribute to the open source (https://github.com/ferrannp), write on Medium (https://medium.com/@ferrannp) and I also make sure that developers tests their code (preferably with Jest!).

Talk Title: Testing React & Redux applications with the *new* Jest: Snapshots come into play!

 

Testing should be easy and painless, otherwise we would not test our apps. That is what Jest has been trying to achieve all this time. But let’s get a bit practical in this talk and show how we can fully test a React + Redux application using Jest. 

Moreover, I would like to focus in the new Snapshot system that Jest provides and explore all its power and real use cases. With Snapshots you can easily test pieces of UI code (in this case React components) but I will also talk about other uses for them. 

You can also expect a lot of real testing examples on this talk that I’ve seeing from different clients I worked with.

Talk title: Modular CSS

 

“Nowadays, lots of JavaScript frameworks and UI libraries are focusing on building UI components. With the rise of ES2015 modules and modern build tools, we are now able to split our JavaScript codebase into smaller pieces that encapsulate their behavior and logic. And yet many projects are still putting generic class names and selectors into a huge CSS file. The fact is, styles are a part of components and deserve to be treated same way we treat JS. CSS deserves to be scoped and modular and have better tools that improve the developer experience.

This talk does a short retrospective of the problems we have with how we write, organize and bundle CSS and how we can improve it by using a better folder structure, naming conventions and local scope, post-processors like PostCSS and bundlers like webpack.

We’ll see how, by combining the power of JavaScript and AST, we can avoid CSS’s bad parts, embrace good ones and even use it to create a better tooling for CSS.”

Kacper Sokołowski

Senior front-end developer

Kacper Sokołowski

My name is Kacper Sokołowski. I live in Kraków, Poland. For the last four years, I have been working for Codewise as a JavaScript developer. My job has mostly been building Single Page Applications. Through all this time I was given the possibility to use many different technologies (YUI, Angular, Typescript and Polymer just to name a few). 

A couple of years ago I realised that my knowledge could be valuable for other people. That’s when I have decided to become a speaker at local community meetups (called meet.js). I have prepared a couple of presentations (covering different topics like Shadow Dom and Web Components) for meet.js. I was eventually asked to become one of the organisers of the meetup itself. Meet.js is a monthly meetup during which we discuss front-end related topics. We usually have 3 to 4 speakers and at least 100 hundred attendees! I believe strongly in serving the community and attending conferences as the best way of sharing knowledge and becoming better programmers eventually.

Talk title: You use Content Security Policy, don’t you?

 

The point of my talk is to explain what the importance of Content Security Policy is. What it is, why do we need it and how we can use it. Plus I’ll do some live coding during the talk.

The talk will begin with stories of the most notorious and infamous attacks conducted by exploiting front-end based security holes.  Right after that, I’ll move into an explanation of XSS attacks (one of the most dangerous front-end issues). I’ll explain what an XSS attack is, how hackers usually perform it, and what makes websites XSS vulnerable. Then, I’ll move to the live coding part. I’ve prepared a website (blog) which I’ll hack by stealing session cookie by using XSS. After a successful attack, I’ll explain what Content Security Policy is and how this mechanism can help in making websites XSS resistant. I’ll present different CSP directives and explain what they do. I’ll configure my local server to use CSP, and try to perform the same attack as before to prove that after the patch it’s unsuccessful. Then I’ll move to CSP cons. I’ll cover the hard maintainability and problems with third party libs and frameworks.

Most of his Open Source time is dedicated to Facebook’s Flow and ReasonML platform to improve JavaScript code quality and to talk about related technologies.

Talk Title: The Road to a Statically Typed JavaScript Future

 

“JavaScript’s dynamic nature and rich and expressive syntax are strengths of the language, making it an approachable and beginner-friendly language to get started with. However, this same flexibility through dynamic typing and runtime evaluation increases the difficulty of debugging and makes it tough to confidently change existing code.
In this talk I will discuss my personal journey and experience on using existing type systems within and outside of the JavaScript ecosystem, specifically Flow and ReasonML, and demonstrate how they can improve your workflow.
I will talk about general concepts of why we need type definitions, how types will influence API designs, the differences between static and runtime types and how we can bridge the gap between a statically compiled, type-safe language and the JavaScript ecosystem.”

Conference Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they’ll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
