Deborah Kurata
"A Declarative Approach to Collect, Combine, and Cache Data with RxJS"
Taking a declarative approach when defining our RxJS streams gives us more flexibility and control.
In this talk, we’ll focus on a declarative approach to collect data via http, combine streams to merge related data, and cache the streams for reuse. We walk through how to define action streams to react to user actions. Lastly, we’ll Observable all the things to display complex data with a single async pipe.
Join me as we get to know another side of RxJS.

"Building JavaScript at Scale"
Over the last years the web tooling has evolved dramatically. Popular tools, such as Angular CLI and Create React App provide well encapsulated build that “just works!”
Over time, however, we started building larger applications. Often so big that the time between code update and page reload takes tens of seconds instead of milliseconds. This is not only annoying but also reduces our productivity. An organization, which hit this problem early on is Google. To make engineers working on large applications productive, Google developed Bazel - a tool for building applications at scale.
In this talk we’ll see how Bazel allows us to reduce our build time of our large applications in orders of magnitude! We’ll explain how it compiles our code in parallel, or even up in the ☁️. In the last part of the presentation, we’ll see how to use Bazel for our JavaScript at scale.

Alex Eagle
Angular’s Tooling team lead, Google
"Enterprise Bazel Migration Patterns"

Abraham Williams
Senior Developer, Bendworks
"PWAs with Angular"
Get an overview of what Progressive Web Apps are and how they can make your website fast, reliable, and engaging. Learn how Angular makes building PWAs quick and easy and some new features in version 9 that help make Angular apps PWAwesome.

Can't wait to see you there!
