Talk descriptions

Mommy’s first PR This talk is about a hackable debugger for modern times, built using React and Redux and a new mom’s entry into FOSS.

I've got an app for that! - How technology is being used in large variety of fields.

When we think of software some of us tend to think of general every day applications that we might use or create. We tend to think of banking websites, streaming services, calculators, spreadsheets, etc. Technology, however, has infiltrated an incredibly large amount of fields, from digital art to scientific discovery.

This talk aims to explore the applications of software in less client-focused fields to open the doors to the opportunities that software provides for growth (either personal or within a community).

The Modern State of Web Components - A Glimmer of Hope

The browser support ​for​ web components has been ​increasing​ ​consistently​ over the past few years and besides other component libraries, including Polymer or X-Tag, the Ember community presents its own new library - Glimmer.js - enabling you to create easy-to-use web components today.
in this talk we will cover browser support, polyfilling and how Glimmer.js can help us to create reusable components for our web apps today. Alongside an demo ​for creating our own web animations powered component ​we will see how we can build and ship our Glimmer based web components and have a look at promising API developments for the future.
