It was a powerful line-up with 14 prominent speakers, which included representatives from Google, Mozilla, Github and Microsoft. A big shout-out goes to Confetti for organising a great event! According to Tobias Åström, what these two days confirmed for us that we can do everything in a millions different ways, but what’s really important is simplicity, cohesiveness and that we build sites/applications for users, not browsers. Here are the topics that Tobias Åström found especially useful:
Bert Belder - Keynote: There are no Promises in node.js
This was an interesting talk about how to succeed with an open source project. Also it featured some light node.js backstory.
Jakob Mattson - Forgotten Funky Functions
Alice Bartlett - Bin your <select> Tags
We wanted to hear more about her experiences on user testing. We found this to be a very light talk on their very extensive user testing for gov.uk.
Franziska Hinkelmann - A Trip to the Zoo: SpiderMonkey, SquirrelFish, Nashorn, and V8
Jake Archibald - Modern Progressive Enhancement
Great talk on a great subject (and also really entertaining).
All talks should be available in the near future on YouTube.
