In this talk we are going to launch a regular Vue App into orbit. We will get the job done using a GraphQL spacesuit. We will cover all its flashy features like declarative collocated queries, schema-first and explore some more for seasoned astronauts like real-time and offline support. Get ready to explore the outer space with GraphQL!
Come grab some caffeine to get your day started
AR’s take on the “Great Debate”, is it better to build platform specific apps or a web app? Can Web-based AR compete with Apps?
Curious about serverless / function-as-a-service [FAAS] / cloud functions technologies, but haven't had a chance to dig in? Wondering what all the excitement is about? In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn: -- the current state of the FAAS ecosystem & major players (including IBM Cloud Functions) -- recognized ideal use cases for serverless solutions -- emerging best practices for serverless architectures -- good sources of information to keep abreast of new developments
GraphQL offers tons of benefits,. The colocation of data is the most revolutionary to me. What if we could utilize existing the GraphQL query parser but talk to any backend? I’ll explore how we can use GraphQL style data fetching without a GraphQL backend to bring colocation of data in the GraphQL query format that is source agnostic.
Lunch will be provided for all attendees thanks to our awesome sponsor, Agora.io
What could a bunch of DIY Pinterest projects teach us about coding? There's hidden insights everywhere in your life if you know where to look. Let's talk about the power of pattern recognition, how to practice it, and how embracing it can enrich your team!
Make music with code! Use an npm module to make notes, chords, and scales, building songs from music online as well as from ones you dream up. The module is able to use obscure scales like Hungarian gypsy and bebop dominant, and augmented and diminished scales, as well as more simple ones too.
You write React for work, but you don't want to no mo'. You ask your boss, please? But he still says, no! How about instead of missing class, you try something different? Well, the Angular team has something cool for you... Angular elements! Angular elements are Angular components packaged as custom elements, a web standard for defining new HTML elements in a framework-agnostic way. Learn how to write and package your Angular components to be used across any framework (or no framework) by extending HTML to allow you to define a tag whose content is created and controlled by your Angular code. Now you can put your Angular components into any other frameworks components! (You gotta fight for your right to write Angular!)
So you've been hearing a lot of buzz about Serverless tech in conjunction with Mobile, but what exactly is the serverless or cloud functions? Come find out at this session. Serverless has become the new style of coding, and it might be perfect to offload your mobile apps without incurring unnecessary costs. Get an intro into serverless/function-as-a-service/cloud functions technologies in the Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) context and learn why startups and enterprises are so excited about using it. We will be demoing Serverless in Swift and iOS, and covering the following: - Who are the players in the serverless ecosystem - What are some use cases for serverless solutions - with MBaaS as one of them - Best practices for the serverless architecture for MBaaS - If going serverless is really faster, better, cheaper for developers and organizations - Live coding examples using Swift
Interactive Q&A on open source software with Cassandra and Paris from Google. Bring your questions!
As developers, we go through different phases in our career. In the initial periods, the focus is mainly on understanding core concepts, tenaciously solving problems, and incorporating constructive feedback. Soon, responsibilities come in the form of designing large systems, collaboration with people, both on a team and across organizations, and providing constructive feedback. This talk is about how mentorship plays a significant role in the development of both technical and people skills.
What is Mentorship? What values do you learn as a mentee, or a mentor, or both? How does mentorship have a positive impact on your career? These questions are answered using examples from my journey- first as a mentee, and then as a mentor at Yelp! All that sounds great, but how does one start finding a mentor or a mentee, you ask? You’re about to find out!
Interactive application are becoming increasingly data intensive, running into challenges of asynchrony/consistency, and performance/networking. This talk will show how we can use a database management over interaction history to model the interactive application, and an accompany demo of a new JS library based on relational transducers.
Our expert panel discusses the intricacies of designing and building products from the perspective of UX and the emerging field of DX.
If the web were a video game franchise, then WebAssembly would be its latest hero...
“During the first part of our journey, our hero completed the first quest—making it possible to play PC games and build applications like AutoCAD on the web. But this journey is far from over! Many a quest awaits; whole worlds are left to explore! The browser, and our hero’s current skill set, is just the beginning.”
A UI Pattern combining Constrained Draggable, Scrollable, and Scrollbar.
In a world where perpetually confused developers can’t quite get their environments working, new libraries emerge from the ashes of lost productivity: envinfo and Solidarity. Escape the complexity and witness the rise of projects embracing change to save their projects from themselves.
Whether you're using Slack at work or not, chatbots and tools that run on the chat-based platform are handy and useful, and have gained popularity. In this talk, Tomomi will show you use cases and best practices of chatbots user experience and explains how to build scalable bots using GCP serverless technologies.
Come join me even if you don't currently build Slack bots or use Google Cloud Platform. It's a fun talk and hopefully you learned something new
Santa Clause, The Free Lunch, and JS Testing - All myths? We all know Testing is key, but it’s not easy. What are your options, what exists, and what works? Let’s talk about it all. What tools exist, and what matters in testing React and React Native.
Front End Happy Hour is a podcast that features a panel of Software Engineers engaging in discussions about front-end development topics while enjoying happy hour beverages.
The cascade is a beautiful and troublesome thing - the infinite inheritance is arguably the best and worst part of CSS. We rely on it for setting styles in context and base styles and we try to protect it from naming collisions and specificity wars through all sorts of conventions in the classic markup + css world. Since migrating to React, we’ve had to do things a bit differently. This is the story of why we traded in the cascade for consistency and how we fumbled and figured our way through the challenges of CSS in React, eventually getting to a production quality design system.
How do we deal with reusable CSS in a design system centric world? Problems with the cascade: consistent BEM style naming conventions allow styles to easily be manually overridden & with hundreds of devs, our frontend infra team can’t be on every css code review If we give up the cascade and everything in CSS Modules becomes namespaced, how do we share basic styles that we want to include across all our components’ pages besides dumping globals on a page?
We based our solution on two key requirements: Components should be able to be used in isolation from one another Components need to be generic enough for developers to use across the site, but consistent enough that they adhere to our design system
This talk will cover some options as to how to write CSS in React without going down the CSS in JS route, alternatives to using global styles, specificity issues, baking meyer reset into base components, patterns around component abstractions, how to deal with no longer having the cascade part of styling when components interact, etc. This is a more in-depth talk version of https://engineeringblog.yelp.com/2018/03/css-in-the-age-of-react.html
You've launched your application, and now you've been asked to optimize it. How do you know how fast it is? Is your data accurate and actionable? We'll explore both generic and framework-specific approaches to instrumenting your application, along with real-world examples of how to put these techniques in practice!
In this talk I'll go through how I created interface elements for a WebVR installation at JSConf EU 2018, getting started with WebVR, & ideas for the future of WebVR art!
