Track 2: Front end Development: Beyond Just Javascript

A session at Future Insights Live - Las Vegas

Thursday 4th June, 2015

11:05am to 11:50am (PST)

Front-End Development is more than just a Javascript layer. Just because everything is single page apps and you’ve got Bootstrap to back up your Backbone, Ember or Angular, doesn’t mean you’re truly developing a presentation layer. Something that’s a truly great interface between the user and the back end requires the three pillars of front end web; javascript sure, but HTML and CSS are vital too. In this talk Robin redefines what it means to be a front-end developer, and explores frameworks that will help us to build things that users love. He'll cover the de-emphasis of HTML and CSS versus Javascript skills in front end web development, and the benefits of a broader approach that's only going to increase in importance as the Javascript MVC model matures.
