Believe in the Power of CSS

You know that song by Huey Lewis and the News, The Power of Love? "First time you feel it, it might make you sad." Might be how you feel about CSS right? What about the power of CSS? CSS has received a bad name as of late, but truth of the matter is that CSS is such a powerful piece of the front-end puzzle and you should really be excited for what's already here and what's to come! Who would have thought we could create magazine-style layouts with CSS grid? What about ruleset variable scoping with custom properties(CSS variables)? And last but not least, the pain of centering content horizontally and vertically which is now possible in three lines with flexbox! Let's talk about how awesome CSS is, and how we can restore our faith in one of the best things that makes the web amazing!

I Feel the Need for Web Page Speed

We demand high performance web applications. To build them we need every single piece of information to help us find actionable ways of speeding up our applications. In this session learn how to use the performance API together with common browser performance tooling to determine down to the method level how long our pages take to perform operations. We’ll also touch briefly on instrumenting up popular frameworks such as React & Angular, running performance checks on mobile browsers, and free open source tools that can help you diagnose and monitor performance.
