Web Components are about to change everything you think you know about building websites.

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!

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 platform.

In this event, you will learn how to:

• Protect your CSS and forget about style conflicts
• Define your own tags and share them with ease
• Spend less time writing JavaScript and more time constructing pages
