About the Event

General release tickers will go live on Friday 5th February at 1pm

This month we bring you an extended dance Remix of Dan Appelquist's talk " Ads, Trackers, Blockers, Super-Cookies, Private Modes and other Ghastly Beasts" and first hand insights on building your own JavaScript framework and the challenges this might bring! We'll also have a lightning talk on Web Components by Francesco Iovine.

“Ads, Trackers, Blockers, Super-Cookies, Private Modes and other Ghastly Beasts (extended dance remix)”, by Dan Appelquist @torgo

After spectacularly failing to deliver this talk in lightning format at the last LWS event, Dan will be back to talk about the rise of privacy enabling technologies on the web. What does the rise of tracker network blockers and ad blockers mean for web sites?

"How to build a JavaScript framework", by Mike Nelson @accordionpeas

There are many benefits and some detriments to building your own JavaScript framework. With so many frameworks available do you need to build one at all? What kind of API should you provide? And how do you ensure quality as your codebase grows? This talk covers answers to these questions and more in order to provide a solid starting point for you to create a successful JS framework.

Lightning Talk - Web Components explained by Francesco Iovine, @franciov

Web components are an old concept and soon a new standard for the Open Web Platform. The W3C specifications are still evolving, but there are many libraries and toolkits around, even if designing a high-quality component is still hard to achieve.
