Joe Morgan Author & Developer "Burn It Down and Start Again: Principles of Modern JavaScript" Heard about the latest JavaScript syntax? Seems like a day doesn’t pass without a language update. And with all the focus on syntax changes, it’s easy to miss the subtle principles driving JavaScript. Modern JavaScript doesn’t just have new tools, it’s composed differently. Don’t use a feature without understanding why it matters. What problems does a new feature solve? How can new syntax make code easier to use and reuse? Modern JavaScript patterns follow four basic principles: predictability, readability, simplicity, and flexibility. In this talk, you’ll learn how to think in modern JavaScript. We’ll explore principles in modern JavaScript and how they apply to new syntax as well as upcoming language changes. Don’t just throw new syntax into old paradigms. Write intentional code. Rob Ocel Senior Software Engineer, This Dot Labs "Common Component Decomposition Pitfalls (And How To Avoid Them!)" The popularity of component-based frameworks has led to a Goldilocks problem for many web development teams. Some teams have too many components, filling their code base with files and folders for components that don't have a clear purpose. Other teams have too few components, and the ones they have are monoliths containing way too much logic and becoming impossible to change. Let's discuss some common component decomposition pitfalls and strategies for making sure that the components you have in your system are just right.
