Web Components are part of the newly-completed HTML5 specifications, and allows developers to define their own, custom DOM elements that are encapsulation, isolated components that can be imported into someone elseweb page. Google has been working on a project called Polymer for the last year or so that provide polyfills for the technologies that haven’t yet been implemented by the browser vendors.
Those polyfills will allow developers to author components in order to write modular applications now, and party like it’s 2016.
This presentation will be discussing three topics:
1. A brief history to explain why we want something like Web Components, and Polymer.
2. A demonstration of how to build components in Polymer, and then import them into another page for use.
3. A plea for caution, and what the future might hold.
