The five best talks from JS/CSSConf in Berlinon 7 August 2018 for Tech Professionals
Three front-end developers are sitting on a plane. What happens next? Not too long ago Stijn, Steven & Yoran, three Exellys consultants of the ING team attended the JS and CSS Conferences in Berlin. When they came back, we asked them to select their five favorite talks. So sit back, grab some popcorn (and maybe a note book) and let’s get started!
Refactoring with CSS Grid – Oliver Williams
The CSS grid layout is a two dimensional system which aims to disrupt the way we design grid based user interfaces. In his presentation, Oliver Williams discusses everything he has already refactored and is planning on refactoring. He also shows how to deal with browsers that don’t support all features using the CSS ‘@supports’ rule.
Generating Colors with JS and CSS Custom Properties – Dag-Inge Aas & Ida Aalen
Asynchrony: Under the Hood – Shelley Vohr
Aggressive Web Apps – Phil Nash
Everyone who uses a computer every once in a while has probably noticed some of the pop-ups that might pop onto the users’ screen asking for their permission to show notifications, sometimes even before it might be clear what that specific website is about. This unpleasant user experience might cause even good notifications to be blocked. In this talk Phil Nash gives a thorough explanation on how, when and why to use notifications as a developer.
10 Things I Regret About Node.js – Ryan Dahl
Ryan Dahl, the creator of Node.js can be considered as the headliner on this conference. As you can probably tell from watching this video, this was noticeable in the audience as well. Every developer in the room was watching Ryan Dahl who was reviewing his own creation and more importantly, selected ten things he would, in retrospect, do completely different having the experience he has today.
