Working with components has been popularised by frameworks like React and Vue. It improves developer experience as smaller things are easier to work with and reason about. But can we exchange components between frameworks? And what about user experience? What do these frameworks spit out in our browsers? Tonight Hidde and Peter will show you how to tame JavaScript frameworks to improve user experience and achieve interoperability through Web Components.

It's the markup that matters

Hidde de Vries (@hdv)

Modern JavaScript frameworks virtualise our DOMs. This allows us to focus on implementation, as data declaratively maps state into markup. While this is great in itself, the significance of the actual markup often gets overlooked. In this practical talk, Hidde will show how specific bits of markup provide real benefit to users.

Cross framework components

Peter Goes (@petergoes)

Component based front-end development has won the hearts of a lot of developers. All popular frameworks (React, Vue and others) are build around this concept. Taking a component from one project and bring it into a new one is a promise that attracts a lot of front-enders. But React components can not be used in a Vue projects or vice versa. Web Components can offer a way out. In his talk, Peter researches the possibilities to create and use Web Components cross framework.
