  • The Web Platform's Cutting Edge

    by Alex Komoroske and Dimitri Glazkov

    From embeds to widgets to managing complex applications, you constantly face the need for better componentization as a web developer. Many-a-lines of JavaScript have been written to alleviate this problem -- poorly. But help is on the way. The web platform is gaining a powerful new set of capabilities designed to better help you build robust, reusable, and packageable components. We'll cover what they do, their status, and how you can start playing with these powerful emerging technologies today. Most importantly, we'll show you how to get involved and help influence their direction as they mature.

    At 11:45am to 12:45pm, Wednesday 27th June

  • How we Make JavaScript Widgets Scream

    by Malte Ubl

    When loading websites every millisecond counts. Social widgets should enhance a website experience and they should definitely not slow it down. We'll walk through the unique challenges of loading social widgets such as the +1 button and how we made sure that they load as fast as possible – yes, there will be war stories! While we'll focus on widget performance, many of the techniques we used have wider applicability and we'll show how they can make your website faster, too.
