Conference Program


Jared Faris: Where The Web Is Going

The web is a strange place with many standards and browser vendors that all have to come together to make something useful. This talk looks at what’s next for web technologies including ECMAScript 2016, Service Workers, the Fetch API, and HTTP/2. It then looks at how these standards come about and which groups set the direction.

We’ll discuss how the W3C, WHATWG, ECMA TC39, and IETF work together (or don’t) to push the Web forward. You’ll leave this talk better prepared for the web of tomorrow.

Benedikt Meurer: A Tale of JavaScript Performance

Performance is key to success for many JavaScript applications today, where performance can mean different things like throughput, load time or responsiveness, all of which are highly dependent on optimizations in the JavaScript VM.

In this talk we'll briefly look into how V8 performs these optimizations, the benchmarks used to drive these optimizations, and how benchmarks, especially micro-benchmarks can fool you. We'll also cover how the V8 team changed the way they measure performance, to ensure that they improve real-world application latency and throughput rather than synthetic benchmark scores.

Training day

Trainings are offered one day before the conference in small groups. Choose a topic and sign up for a full day in-depth practice.

Design Thinking for Developers

Design Thinking is more creative and user-centered than traditional design approach. It helps to solve so-called ill-defined problems, where both the problem and the solution are unknown at the outset of the problem-solving process.

You will learn and practice 6 main phases of DT: understanding, observation, point of view definition, ideation, prototyping, testing. You'll get the theory intro to every step and train with your personal ideas.

Your coach: Uliana Andriieshyna

User Interface Developer at SAP Hybris, passionate about beauty on the Web and dedicated to building a great user experience. Two Master degrees, leading the Munich Frontend Meetup and organizing conferences in Munich.

Use CSS3 and Flexbox with confidence

This full-day workshop will give you a solid understanding of how Flexbox fits into the CSS landscape and what kind of problems it solves best.

There will be many exercises throughout the day to apply the new concepts, all based on real-life layouts we see in our work.

Your coach: Eugene Rabinovitch

Software engineer, worked at Microsoft and Autodesk in Canada, then switched to the web side of things. Has been a freelance web developer in Berlin, Barcelona, and Dublin for over 10 years. Currently works at InterNations, makes talks and workshops on CSS.

Webpage Loading Speed in Perfection

Website speed is the first impression we are making to our audience online, based on which visitors make an instant judgment about the business. A fast website not only makes it feel professional and reliable but also motivates people to interact with it, because low latency defines the engagement.

The goal is to learn how to use speed optimization methods and integrate them easily while realizing what exactly would it bring.

Your coach: Anton Caceres

Full-stack developer, running a web-agency in Munich and shaping the local tech community. Founder of Fullstack Events, an organization doing meetups, workshops, and conferences. Always happy to share and learn.
