Every time I attend a tech conference I usually meet interesting people and found new awesome technologies. It’s great. This year I attended 4 conference in a row (36 talks in 10 days) and I started a new job a few days earlier. During May 2016 I discover dozens of new technologies and I’d like to do my part and “give back to the community” talking about them in a series of posts.
Here is what I discovered attending JSDay 2016 in Verona.
Progressive Web Apps
Progressive Web Apps “take advantage of new technologies to bring the best of mobile sites and native applications to users. They’re reliable, fast, and engaging.” Google says. They are web apps with a great offline experience. Here is a great list of examples.
UpUp helps you to make your progressive app to be “Offline First“. The idea is to makes sure your users can always access your site’s content, even when they’re on a plane, in an elevator, or 20,000 leagues under the sea
Traditional frameworks are going reactive thanks to extensions like Ngrx
Model View Intent is going (probably) to replace previous MVC, MVP, MVVM, …
The Bleeding edge version of Chrome, Canary, offers you several beautiful beta features like an integrated layout editor able to edit SASS and works with Rails, a powerful animation inspection and enable you to emulate network connectivity and speed.
Most of these feature are available inside Chrome Workspaces.
I also discover Modernizr and his stunning new website, Can I Use tells you how much is a technologies available on browser, ZeroClipboard and Clipboard.js makes copy and paste easier, Hapi.js is an interesting framework and Highland a powerful stream library for Node.js. I also discovered that I can use WebGL for data processing in browser.
In the end a lot of new discoveries at JSDay 2016 😉
