Prepare for the Future with Web Components

Web Components are about to change everything you think you know about building websites. You get how CSS works, right? wrong! HTML? nope. JavaScript? nawww.

To facilitate the next generation of web technologies, browser makers and standards writers have begun opening up new low level APIs which will, for the first time, allow us to not only create our own HTML tags but to also encapsulate our CSS styles. No more global stylesheet soup and no more boilerplate code!

Web Components are like an umbrella that encompasses many different new specs: Templates, HTML Imports, Custom Elements and Shadow DOM. They will force us to rethink almost every aspect of web design, from CSS scoping and markup conventions to JavaScript design patterns.

These tools are landing in the browsers as we speak so put your lab coat on and prepare to experiment with the future of the web.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
