Web Directions Code ’20 session spotlight–Practical uses for Web Components, today!

Practical uses for Web Components, today!

Ben Taylor, Software Developer, Designer and Educator Grok Learning

Web Components can feel like a fancy future technology that you will maybe use someday. Especially if you’ve built your entire tech stack around not needing them. Fortunately though, you don’t need to rebuild your app to make use of Web Components.

Web Components work great as isolated improvements. Their API is neat and tidy and doesn’t require a big switch. In this talk I’ll give an overview of Web Components, and how to build your own set of components. Then I’ll explore examples of how I’ve used Web Components practically in an ageing codebase.
