"The Art of Debugging" by Remy Sharp

Pretentious title aside, Remy will share how he approaches debugging, techniques that have become muscle memory, old tired and tested methods and (hopefully) show off a neat trick or two that can be achieved with today's state of the art debuggers

"Wait, Web could do that?!” by Prashant Palikhe

Did you know that `window.length` gives you the amount of frames on your browser window? Or that you can actually do some serious performance tweaks with CSS?The frontend world moves at an incredibly fast pace. New standards, frameworks and tools popping up all the time. It’s hard to keep track of what’s there and what’s not.We did (some of) the hard work for you and we’re here to talk about the things that the web on the frontend can already do today but many developers might not know yet.New CSS standards, cutting edge dev tools features and all kinds of shiny features and APIs. We want to expose some of these to you and, hopefully, make your day!

Track 1 - JavaScript/CSS/HTML Workshops

In Track 1 you can you choose one or more of several online workshops. Whether you want to start with programming, you're curious to know what this JavaScript thing is all about, create your first web page, get more familiar with backend development through Node.js. It's for all levels, we will have a rookie table for beginning developers. You can opt to start straight away with the workshops or first attend the talks in track 2.
