About this event

Welcome to our next GDGSV + Modern Web + AngularMTV partnered event!

This will be held at 1255 Pear Avenue Mountain View, CA 94043 on August 7, 2019 from 6:30PM - 9:30PM.

Special thanks to Angular for sponsoring this event.

We have some awesome talks planned!

Our lineup of speakers:

Stephen Fluin - Angular team
State of Angular

Christina Yu - Software Engineer, PayPal
An Introduction to Static Web Apps with JAMStack
This past year my team at PayPal began looking at how we could radically improve our developer experience and deliver high-quality applications faster. We landed on an approach we call “static apps” that removes our heavy node layer and replaces it with static markup and JS on a CDN. All of the dynamic content is served over GraphQL APIs. This approach to using JavaScript, APIs and Markup is sometimes referred to as the JAMStack. This talk will walk through some of the challenges we faced with our node.js application servers and how we are trying to solve them by moving to this new model. Performance, stability, security and developer experience concerns will all be highlighted. This talk is for people curious about GraphQL, GatsbyJS and JAMStack generally as well as those people interested in speeding up the development and deploy process for their teams.

Prateek Bhatnagar - AMP @ Google, Preact-cli core team
Resilient offline web apps
Covering: Different offline patterns for different types of content, UX patterns for syncing offline data, & Periodic sync - what to expect

Minko Gechev - Angular @ Google
Tools for Fast Angular Applications
Angular grew significantly in the past few years from both a tooling and developer experience standpoint. This talk will explore many of the features and newer improvements in the pipeline that allow anyone to build and deploy performant apps with very little overhead.

Through real demos and examples, we’ll cover bundle budgeting, differential loading, automatic code-splitting, and more! In the second part of the talk, we’ll focus on how to efficiently prefetch and preload different modules and components.

See you there!
