Common Mistakes and pitfalls when switching from React to Vue

At a glance, React and Vue are like two peas in a pod. They are lightweight component-based libraries for building user interfaces and can be used fairly interchangeably to build scalable web applications. Though they are noticeably different in terms of syntax, their key differences lie in their respective ways of thinking. As a React developer learning Vue, adapting to the idiomatic way of writing Vue is a challenge that requires a sound understanding of the philosophy behind the framework. In this talk, we will examine the nuances between the two frameworks and cover common mistakes that React developers make when switching from React to Vue.

You really don't need all that JavaScript, I promise

JavaScript is your behaviour layer; the way to add interactivity to your sites, to provide a slick and delightful user experience, to make everything fast and easy and clean. But at some point everything changed: the tail started to wag the dog instead and development became Javascript-first. We'll talk about how you maybe shouldn't rely on JS as much as you're told to, and some practical strategies for how to build sites without reaching for a JS framework as first, last, and only tool for making the web happen.

Peeling an orange - progressive website loading

Website loading experience is one of the most painful points for web developers today. While improving the actual loading time is the most important goal, improving the perceived performance can bring a lot of value as well, especially in the case of rich web applications. In this talk we'll discuss progressive bootstrapping - a technique in which we load the website not from top down, but rather from outside in - useful from the first early paint and provides richer experience as more content and code loads. Focus on user experience when thinking about performance.

Practical Machine Learning for Front-End Developers

Machine learning can have some pretty complicated concepts to grasp if you’re not a data scientist. However, recent developments in tooling make it more and more accessible for developers and people with little or no experience. One of these advancements is the ability to now train and run machine learning algorithms and models in the browser, opening this world to front-end developers to learn and experiment. In this presentation, we will talk about the different applications, possibilities, tools and resources, as well as show a few examples and demos, so you can get started building your own experiments using machine learning in JavaScript.
