Title: Rethinking Data with GraphQL
Speaker: Ryan Chenkie, Google Developer Expert, Angularcasts, and Front End Masters

GraphQL has a simple goal: allow the client to ask for exactly the data it needs. The problem is that this requires a big shift in thinking about how data interactions should look. Once you’re able to “think in GraphQL”, however, you won’t want to go back. I’ll show you how to do just that.

Title: Open Source Web Components
Speaker: Tom Dalbo, Senior Software Engineer on Red Hat Customer Platform

Web Components aren’t scary anymore! We’re building applications with RHElements - extensible, standards-based, accessible, and open source. This talk will walk through how you can build your applications with web components without having to sacrifice browser compatibility, accessibility, SEO, or conforming to a single front-end framework across your organization. More info coming soon.

Title: NativeScript “Zero to Hero”
Speaker: Mark Halpin, Software Developer & NativeScript Expert

Do you have a great idea for a mobile application, but don’t know Java or Swift? Do you want to develop an application as quickly as possible using the web skills you already have?

If you haven’t heard of NativeScript, then you are in for a treat. NativeScript is framework that allows you to build cross platform mobile apps using common web technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML that look, feel and perform like native applications. Not only can you use plain JavaScript, but you can also leverage the frameworks you already know to help build those native applications and integrate functionality such as location services, the camera, and push notifications. In this session, you will learn the basics of NativeScript and how to get started with Vue, as well as the tools you will need to start building and packaging native applications.
