Progressive Enhancement in the Age of JavaScript

Progressive enhancement proponents will tell you that serving HTML, then adding behavior by sprinkling JavaScript on top, will help you build apps that are accessible to the widest number of people. But as the world has changed—with powerful hand-held devices dominating the market but network connections that are often still unreliable—is it it time to revisit the assumptions of progressive enhancement?

In this talk, we'll discuss how the rise of the smartphone changes how to think about progressive enhancement. Counterintuitively, that may mean writing more JavaScript, not less. In particular, we'll focus on Ember.js' FastBoot technology that bridges the gap between server-side and client-side. Expect a talk that covers high-level concepts as well as dives deep into code.

Node Micro Apps: Modules All The Way Down

Modules are core to the design of Node applications. Any application built on top of Node leverages the growing module ecosystem to add functionality, features and tooling. However the applications themselves are not entirely modular. What if we re-imagined the architecture of our large web applications to be built from really small (or micro!) applications that can be installed and used as modules? What would such an application architecture look like? What would be the joys and pains of using it in production for over a year? In this talk, I will share the experience of the creating and using a Micro Apps architecture at Conde Nast Traveler. I will also give a deep dive of the code, patterns and tools you will for need for this architecture using my blog as an example.

The rise of Open Source and MEAN Stack in the Enterprise

Open Source Software is ubiquitous and it’s ripples are prominent today more than ever before, thanks to a successful and disruptive set of technologies that drive software engineering today. With an introduction to Open Source Software, we will review and learn about one Fortune500 Enterprise journey towards adopting the JavaScript MEAN stack framework for web applications.

Google

The talk is about a solution to a problem which many of us are facing at this point in time. Many applications written in AngularJS, EmberJS, ReactJS and many, many other JS frameworks suffer from lack of SEO. The google bot doesn’t render them as they should be rendered.

Fast-prototyping using Bootstrap and Ember.js components

This short talk will cover the advantages and caveats of using ember.js & its components idiom as a framework for rapid prototyping of a web application, as learned while building http://www.remax.ro/ under a tight deadline (~5 months) and minimum initial specifications.

Re-architecting the client with Flux

We will talk about the main components of a Flux architecture, about some implementations that are available and the different practices that appeared over the course of the last year. We will discuss the differences between classic approaches in building client side applications and the new practices proposed by the React community, while also pointing out some of the benefits of using Flux.

Digital Storytelling Through the SVG ViewBox

The web has historically been a one-dimensional medium: start at the top and scroll down. Unexplored capabilities in the browser let us break out of the 1D world and into the 3D universe.
In this talk, we'll examine animating the SVG viewBox, giving us access to powerful three-dimensional motion effects. We'll use these techniques to provide spatial animations that are high-resolution, performant, and best of all, easily accessible to designers who don't need to learn how to program to deliver cinematic-quality animations on the web.
