Subscribe to our newsletter

The biggest news this year is adding a JS track @ Web Summer Camp. It is imagined as an opportunity for frontend web professionals interested in JavaScript to participate in hands-on workshops spread over 3 days. Learn more in the blog posts.

*Web Summer Camp 2017 is sold out! Stay tuned for the next edition!

Workshop prerequisites

In order to actively participate in hands-on workshops, you need to bring your own laptop with a processor capable of hardware virtualization and at least 4 GB of RAM (8 GB is highly recommended). Regular hard disk will do, but having an SSD is an advantage. As for software requirements, you need to have the latest version of VirtualBox 5.x installed.

Please note that if your laptop is not capable of hardware virtualization and doesn’t meet the requirements, you will only be able to listen to the workshops, but you will not be able to participate hands-on in the workshops and get the maximum value out of it.

if you will still be having problems with your setup, our Help Desk crew will be there on August 29, 18:00-19:30 to sort out any last minute issues.

They came for the offline-first, but they stayed for the performance (Intermediate)

by Jason Lengstorf

There's a big push for offline-first development, with a new buzzword — "Progressive Web App", or PWA — making the rounds for the last year or two. But a lot of what's being said sounds like the coding equivalent of "eat your vegetables!" What's in it for ME? Quite a bit, it turns out. In this talk, Jason will share the surprising ways online apps will see huge benefits when they're built to support offline users. Learn how to ace the Lighthouse test with just a few simple changes and how you can easily create offline-first apps with just a few lines of code; also how going offline-first will improve the connected experience, including better performance, increased stability and reliability, improved user experience, and more! So, in addition to eating your vegetables — you know, making your web apps usable for people with slow and unreliable connections or whatever — you'll ALSO see your apps get even better for connected users. And all with minimal development effort required.

Universal JS web applications with React (Basic)

by Luciano Mammino

Since we started seeing JS on the server side, the developers' dream has been to reduce the gap and the cost of switch between frontend and backend. Today with Node.js, React, and a whole ecosystem of tools, this dream is becoming true! In this workshop, Luciano is going to discuss Universal (a.k.a. Isomorphic) JS and present some practical examples regarding the major patterns related to routing, data retrieval, and rendering. He will use Node, React, webpack, Babel, and React Router, and give you a series of examples to get you started easily with this new technology trend.

Working with JavaScript module systems (Intermediate)

by Marijn Haverbeke

You'll be walking through the history of the way people have been managing dependencies in JavaScript, taking a look at how the various approaches work and why they were invented. The focus will be on "modern" module systems – CommonJS and ES6 modules – and how and when to use these without destroying your debugging experience or page-load speed.

Building a better login with the credential management API (Basic)

by James Allardice

Login pages are probably the single type of page that users on the web interact with more than any other. In recent years the sign in experience has changed with the advent of federation via social networks, but whether a user has to type an email address and password or click a link and be redirected via Facebook, the process still interrupts the journey. The Credential Management API, a new W3C standard designed by Mike West at Google, is an attempt to help streamline this process at the user agent level. This workshop will investigate the new API and explore how we can use it to progressively enhance customer journeys in the apps we build.

17:00 - 18:00

Web Battle

Unconference session – a participant-driven meeting where anyone who wants to present a topic can claim a brief time to do so. A special award awaiting the highest-rated speaker!

Web of Things – Peer to Peer Web (Intermediate)

by Princiya Marina Sequeira

The web today is a growing universe. Over the years, web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful web experiences. One such feature is WebRTC, which provides browsers and mobile applications with Real Time Communication (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs. In this hands-on workshop you will learn to build applications to support real time communication on the web. You will build an app to get video and take snapshots with your webcam and share them peer-to-peer via WebRTC. Along the way, you'll learn how to use the core WebRTC APIs and set up a messaging server using Node.

Knowing It All

Closing keynote by Rachel Andrew

Rachel has been a web developer for over 20 years. Things have changed almost beyond recognition since she first sat down at a computer to figure out how to build a website. However some things haven’t changed, and perhaps in those things can be found a way to navigate all of the new things, to assess new technology, and to make the right decisions for the projects we work on.
