- An introduction to Babel.
- Its significance for the JS Ecosystem.
- Its major components that make it work.
- Details about how they work.
- How to start contributing to Babel

18:55 - A developers guide to low carbon websites // Tim Benniiks

A talk about how we can make more sustainable choices in the production of web technology.

The internet consumes a lot of electricity. 416.2TWh per year to be precise. That’s more than the entire United Kingdom. From data centers to transmission networks to the devices that we hold in our hands, it is all consuming electricity, and in turn producing carbon emissions. The average website produces 4.61 grams CO2 per page view. For a website with 10,000 monthly page views, that's 553 kg CO2 per year.

These are staggering numbers and they will only go up as the internet is growing rapidly. In the scope of producing for the web there are generally three subjects to address to make a more sustainable internet happen. Proper design and content, good web development and server architecture.

In this talk I will focus on what web developers and systems engineers can do to lower the carbon footprint of the things they work on. Amongst other things I will discuss performance budgets, best practices for front-end code, solutions for media delivery/optimization and concepts like JAMstack and serverless.

At the end of the talk you will have learnt the best practices to build a highly performant website or app that reaches sustainability goals *and* attracts more customers. Websites with high performance, a clear content strategy and good SEO are easier to find. They get people to what they are looking for faster. This all means: less usage of devices and servers. Which in-turn means: a more sustainable web.

For this event I will focus most on JS
