Web Components

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Wednesday 5th April, 2017

1:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

One of the first things that people new to HTML ask is "How do I make my own custom elements?" And the disappointing truth was that you couldn't. In recent years, we've seen custom elements championed by several web platform technologies such as Angular directives, but it still wasn't part of the HTML and browser standards.

Over the last few years, we've watched the concept of native custom elements become a reality. Come learn about the four technologies of Custom Elements, HTML Imports, Templates, and the Shadow Dom come together to form what we collectively know as Web Components. This is a new world of component composition and globally reusable elements all in native browser technology.
