About this event

We are partnering with Modern.Web for this event!

Title: WebAssembly Demystified

Speaker: Jay Phelps, Senior Software Engineer, Netflix

Brief: A revolution is about to begin. WebAssembly (aka wasm) is shipping in all modern browsers, but since it's (intentionally) very low level, it can be difficult to understand how it will be critical to future web applications--and definitely not just games and C++!

Title: Building a CSS style guide with consistency, accessibility and performance best practices

Speaker: Archana Sankaranarayanan, UI Engineer, Netflix

Brief: Creating a common CSS pattern library that our teams will use and maintain is challenging. We struggle with overriding styles, high specificity, redundant CSS, just to mention a few. So how do we build a reusable pattern library that cuts down CSS size, reduces complexity for the browser, offers consistency to our products, and enables accessibility?

Let’s dive deep into building every UI element of our pattern library with consistency, accessibility and performance baked in. We will wrap it in a style guide using PostCSS for ease of reusability. We will also look at CSS analysis and monitoring tools for maintaining the style guide through the lifecycle of the product.

Title: NgRx: How Angular does Redux

Speaker: Jeff Cros, nrwl.io

Brief: Coming soon.
