We will only be be writing function components, using the new feature of Hooks for state, context and lifecycle methods that will be introduced in the next version of React. This session should teach you a few new tricks, no matter if you're new to React or already using it for years. -- Memory Leaks in JavaScript by Christian Speckner Was ist ein Memory Leak? Wie sieht es in JavaScript aus? Warum sollte mich das interessieren? Und wie kann ich ein Leak identifizieren, flicken oder (noch besser) gleich ganz vermeiden? Antwort auf diese Fragen gibt es in diesem Vortrag. -- WebAssembly & Progressive Web Apps: Rethinking modern application development by Christian Weyer Choose your programming language of choice for building fast, ubiquitously cross-platform, future-proof modern applications: dang - your dream will finally come true! Really...? Let's see. Undoubtedly, everybody needs to build business applications, somehow. The web and the browser platforms have changed the way we can build LOB applications and these platforms have evolved considerably in the past 5 years. More and more native features are available to SPAs running in the browser - a great base for modern applications as so called Progressive Web Apps (PWA). Now, with the rise of WebAssembly (WASM) as a standard and the improving maturity of PWAs we have powerful tools in our hand to build the next generation of web-based applications. In this session Christian Weyer will talk about the features & possibilities of Progressive Web Apps as app-like appearance, installability or offline operations, paired with the power of WebAssembly as a bytecode for all major modern browsers. See how to use PWAs to build native-like applications on the browser platforms and experience the strength of WASM to run C/C++ code in the browser, without any plugin. This can be a disruptive approach for both greenfield and brownfield projects. Lean back and watch how the web is evolving into a new stage of capabilities and feel the potential of your next (business) application. Let’s do it! Christian Weyer is founder and CTO of Thinktecture AG. As a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional), Google GDE (Developer Expert) and independent Microsoft Regional Director for Germany, he is an engaged and passionated speaker on various software conferences and events all over the world. His heart has always been with cross-platform solutions and distributed end-to-end architectures - with his head in the Cloud since 2008. ℹINFORMATION Food and drinks are included as always.
