This is not one of those “use other frameworks” evangelism talks. I’ve seen my share of decisions being made to use a front-end only approach even though it’s not quite needed.

In this talk I’ll share some of these decision making stories, and how to actively avoid “just” using a framework and doing your best to reduce the on going JavaScript warming and save the world.

Outline

  • A tiny library to make it easy to create DOM nodes in JavaScript
  • Tiny “refresh-on-change” library
  • New browser APIs that are very useful (intersection observer, mutation observer etc.)
  • Finally look at using all the above to build a fast, light-weight page, possibly a clone of a popular web application.

Speaker bio

A banker turned programer, I spend most of my time fiddling in browser console.
