“Thinking Offline" - by Phil Nash @philnash

Building a progressively enhanced, offline capable web application requires a different way of thinking. Not only is JavaScript optional, so is the network. Throughout this talk we’ll explore the life of a simple, though not trivial, web application that was built from the ground up as offline first. A base experience, static resources, dynamic pages, data and notifications will all play a part in this story of a new way of working with the web.

About Phil

Phil Nash is a developer evangelist for Twilio. Sometimes he writes code on stage in front of a crowd, praying inside that everything works. Sometimes he writes open source code, which is much less stressful because if it is wrong someone else can correct it. He writes code in tweets sometimes, but not much fits. He blogs here and on the Twilio blog and you'll find plenty of code there too.

"Planes, trains, and CSS components!" - by Adam Onishi @onishiweb

The way we’re meant to be writing CSS appears to be in constant flux! What’s the safest route? Do we go for just writing vanilla CSS - is this the simplest and thus the safest? What about pre-processors like Sass or LESS? Or, do we look for more adventure with off-road vehicles like JavaScript or Web Components?

Join Adam as he takes you on a journey through these different techniques for creating components. We’ll tackle all the bumps in the road head-on and fly straight into the eye of the storm, as we loop and swerve around development opinions.

The best thing about this journey, is we’ll see what it takes to engineer a component system for a large organisation. Using the best techniques available to us, both old and new. Ensuring styles are reusable, transferable, and easy to use across a variety of teams and products.

About Adam

Adam is a front-end developer working in the Origami team at the Financial Times in London. He has a keen interest in CSS and Sass, and advocates strongly for accessibility and progressive enhancement when building for the web. Adam is also co-creator of 12 Devs of Xmas and author of the book Pro WordPress Theme Development.
