My most favorite talks in 2015
I enjoy being at conferences, however I can’t be on all of them. Which is sad, because judging from all the videos one misses a lot! Turns out, my most favorite talks were all from conferences I haven’t been to. The organizers however are kind enough to provide amazing videos for us:
Jake Archibald: Modern Progressive Enhancement #
Jake Archibald gives a wonderful and funny performance showing the manifold advantages his latest brain-child has to offer: Service Workers. This thing will most likely be one of the new best practices we have to incorporate in every website from now on.
Vasilis van Gemert: Look, no mediaqueries! #
“Look, no mediaqueries” is a way to humble title for this talk. Vasilis shows individual and fresh layout techniques which can be a achieved with a few lines of CSS. This goes way beyond the boring stereotypical website layout we see every day. Still, his techniques are so universally usable that you might incorporate them in any layout challenge you might face.
Progressively enhanced online shop in HTML E-Mails. You don’t need to know more.
Franziska Hinkelmann: A Trip to the Zoo: SpiderMonkey, SquirrelFish, Nashorn, V8 #
Kornel Lesiński: And .then() what? Promise programming patterns #
In his talk, Kornel shows that Promises are not only good for avoiding the dreaded callback hell, but also allow for some sweet programming patterns. Being able to “work” with values that haven’t arrived yet makes our code much more robust and flexible.
