All you need to know about front-end development with html5 web components and Google Polymer

A session at Boise Code Camp 2016

Saturday 19th March, 2016

11:10am to 12:25pm (MST)

Session Level: 200

Learn all about html5 web components. What they are, how to use them, and why they speed up front-end development.

I will cover fundamental topics such as Shadow DOM, as well as Polymer's implementation of Shady DOM, and some of the benefits / challenges that go along with them. I will also compare Polymer to other front-end libraries like jQuery and AngularJS and what differentiates Polymer from being just another JavaScript framework. An example of this would be the ability to use service worker to create an awesome offline experience, or using push messaging to alert users of some time sensitive information without making a native application.

Lastly, I will walk students through a live example of creating a basic portfolio site using Polymer, and I will set up a github repo for anyone in the audience who would like to have a copy of the code shown during the presentation.

UO -> WSU -> MSU -> SOU. NAIA All-American. Currently living in Boise.

I enjoy learning how and why things work the way they do. From tinkering with arduino and bluetooth, to Android and iOS, to creating REST APIs backed by relational databases, and even front-end mobile first web design, you never know what you'll find me working on.

Currently I work for AXS Consulting LLC, right here in Boise as a software developer. On the weekends you may run in to me at one of the local coffee shops downtown or out running in the foothills.
