PWAs on steroids

PWAs bring the best of both mobile and native apps to user. PWAs equipped with service workers provide features like offline availability, push notifications etc. Now with modern webAPIs, PWAs are beyond the browsers; in Hardware. Consider turning bulb on/off with your PWA, sounds cool? Lets learn how to, in this talk!

Trishul Goel

Trishul is a professional frontend developer; writes React code for a living and volunteers for Mozilla to justify his existence. He promotes PWAs to developers #teamWeb. He loves to talk about modern Javascript and tries to use it to solve all of his problems, even the domestic ones. He is an expert in developing browser extensions.

Zero to Hardware in 30 Minutes

In a world where our consumer devices are developed by huge corporations with 9 figure budgets, creating your own hardware product to sell can seem completely out of reach.

In this talk Gordon will show you how you can create a prototype, program the device and an app with JavaScript, design a manufacturable circuit board, design and 3D print a case, and get it manufactured in quantity - in 30 minutes. There will be demos along the way as well.

Gordon Williams

Gordon is the creator of the Espruino, a tiny microcontroller board that runs JavaScript. Over the past 3 years he's designed hardware, written software, and shipped two successful KickStarters from his home in Oxfordshire.

Workshop: Web Bluetooth for IoT sensors

This workshop will get people programming a wireless Bluetooth device with JavaScript, and then using JavaScript and Web Bluetooth on a webpage to read from and control the device wirelessly. Developers may be asked by a (maybe internal) customer whether they can solve a problem that requires a physical device (measuring humidity in a warehouse, how long a queue is over the day or making an interactive PoS display). This workshop shows them that these problems are easily solvable with their existing skillset.

You will need no cables or other connection to get started - just a Mac or Windows 10 PC less than 5 years old. There are no downloads (apart from the need to have Google Chrome installed), just internet access needed to go to a website.

Spreadable JavaScript

It’s impossible not to love the spread operator. It’s succinct. It’s useful. But it’s also misunderstood. This talk aims to demystify those three dots. What exactly is happening under the hood? Why does it work on arrays, strings, objects and even generator functions? Attendees will learn more than the basics of the spread operator and its most common use cases: iterators/iterables will be explored and explained, key order in objects will get an overview, and Jenn will expand your spread operator knowledge with some unusual uses.

Jennifer Creighton

Jenn Creighton is a software engineer and conference speaker. She lives in New York with her two cats, one dog, and maintains a Home for Abandoned Succulents, Mismanaged Plants and Otherwise Ailing Flora. You can find her online @gurlcode.

What Tamagotchis can teach you about ES6 generators

What do Tamagotchis — everyone’s favourite digital pets from the 90s — and ES6 generators — pausible functions for async tasks — have in common? Both are really fun to play with. As a recent side project, Jenn built a web-version of a Tamagotchi. But she struggled with one key element: how to handle a series of animations. What do you do when animations need to know that other animations are complete? What do you do when you’ve queued animations but a user event needs to be handled instead? This talk explores where Jenn went wrong (hint: promises) and what worked (hint: generators). You’ll leave this talk with a solid grasp of how to combine promises, generators, and coroutines for async work — whether it’s for a Tamagotchi or your day-to-day work.

Workshop: BTR FSTR AWSMR SSR: Rapidly build a static blog site using TS, Node.js, and modern Dojo

In a world where developer experience is often at odds with end-user performance and experience, attempts to keep these conflicts at peace are evolving rapidly. This workshop provides a hands-on approach to building a static blog site using modern reactive approach with Dojo, TypeScript, and Node.js with techniques beyond typical server-side rendering (SSR) approaches.

TypeScript vs. Frameworks

Everyone has their favorite framework or frameworks. And TypeScript adoption has grown substantially. But how well suited is your framework of choice to take full advantage of TypeScript? In this talk, Dylan will examine the benefits and challenges of using TypeScript with a variety of front-end frameworks including React, Angular, Dojo, Vue, Ember, Svelte, and others. You will look at how each framework supports TypeScript, and for frameworks authored in TypeScript, how effectively they use TypeScript and how much each framework focuses on passing the benefits of TypeScript to developers.

Passwords are so 1990

As long as you have been using the internet, and way before that, you have been authenticating through some sort of username and password combination. It has become the standard. With the ever-increasing number of web-apps, you’re seeing more and more data breaches as well. What if you could build our authentication processes in a way the user doesn’t need a password?

In this talk, Sam will give a quick overview of the past, present and future of authentication. From basic authentication to passwordless biometric authentication using the web authentication API, and everything in between. The audience does not need any specific knowledge as this talk will not go into implementation details but aims to give a view of what’s to come in terms of authentication.

Sam Bellen

Sam is a Google Developer Expert who works as a Developer Evangelist at Auth0. At Auth0 they're trying to make authentication and identification as easy as possible, while still keeping it secure.

Controlling Bluetooth mesh networks with Web Applications

Bluetooth mesh is a new Bluetooth technology which was released in 2017. It allows secure networks of tens of thousands of Bluetooth devices to be created and truly smart, self-optimising buildings to be created, with sensors, lights, air-conditioning units and more, all working wirelessly and automatically together.

Mesh networks and the devices they contain need to be monitored and controlled, sometimes by humans using a GUI application. This session will explain how web applications which leverage the Web Bluetooth APIs can be developed for this purpose.

Martin Woolley

Martin Woolley works for the Bluetooth SIG, the technical standards body for Bluetooth. He’s an industry veteran with over 30 years’ experience working with computers large, small and ….. getting smaller. He still has a Sinclair ZX81 somewhere. He was a part of the BBC micro:bit team and designed the micro:bit’s Bluetooth profile.

Making less of the web with Feature Policy

The web platform has seen a decade of furious expansion, with websites now able to access USB, vibration, Bluetooth, and geolocation, as well as store huge amounts of data on end-user devices, trigger background sync and notifications and even get paid from users' digital wallets. But with this expansion has come an increased scope for attacks, costly mistakes and performance regressions. Feature policy is a new feature designed to actually disable or limit features of the platform. With a feature policy, developers can solve performance issues, improve security, police their development team's best practices, and even stop third-party scripts from misbehaving. All with one new HTTP header.

Andrew Betts

Andrew is a web developer, product manager and developer advocate for Fastly, working with developers across the world to help make the web faster, more secure, more reliable and easier to work with. He founded a web consultancy which was ultimately acquired by the Financial Times, led the team that created their pioneering HTML5 web app, and founded the FT’s Labs division. He has also been an elected member of the W3C Technical Architecture Group, a committee of nine people who guide the development of the World Wide Web.

With whatever remaining free time she has, she also runs free sponsored workshops around London to teach and inspire young children from all backgrounds. Rachel is also a mental health advocate and has given talks on the importance of self-care and a healthy work-life balance.

Business Design Centre

Situated in Islington, one of London’s most vibrant areas, the BDC is within walking distance of Angel tube station and relatively close to Kings Cross, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Euston stations. Conveniently located outside the congestion charge zone, the venue also benefits from on-site car parking, an adjacent Hilton Hotel, and has disabled access.
