🗣️ #ngHeidelberg v11 - 1st TALK:
Valentin Kononov: Bad Practices: What to avoid in Angular

Best practices… There are lots of best practices how you can make your app better. But at the end of the day we usually forget what we should NOT do in order to achieve better results. Let’s talk about some bad stuff like mis-using pipes, subscriptions, leaks, big lists, TS features and so on. This way we can finally get even closer to better and more performant apps in Angular.

The talk will be held in English.

🗣️ #ngHeidelberg v11 - 2nd TALK:
Sam Vloeberghs: Angular and Technical SEO

Handling proper SEO for Angular (and in general, JavaScript based) applications and websites has been a challenge in the past. But with Angular Universal and more recently Scully things have evolved in the right direction!
In this talk we will discuss several practical and technical techniques that will make your website SEO-proof for all Search Engines and social crawlers, even in a multi language setup, like;
- Server-side-rendering, Static Site Generation and prerendering
- Setting the title and meta tags
- Rendering JSON-LD
- Supporting multiple languages
- Localizing the application routes

The talk will be held in English.
