Catch up on what you missed with a selection of top talks from jsMobileConf, or watch the whole playlist.
Admittedly we've been a bit tardy in getting videos of the conference ready for you all, but here is a selection of some of the most highly-rated talks from jsMobileConf 2018 (and the full playlist is available on YouTube)!
NOTE: jsMobileConf is coming back to Boston later this year! Stay tuned to (soon-to-be-updated) jsMobileConf.com for more details.
IndexedDb, WebSQL, local storage, SQLite, Service Workers… what to choose and when. In this talk, we’ll discuss the options available to the JS developer for designing rich, seamless offline experiences.
Did you ever notice that FasS & Serverless is a lot like the Fast & the Furious series of movies? Each of the different characters is like a function specializing in doing one thing really well. Then when when you combine their abilities as a team they can accomplish anything like a great app.
We have long been breaking monoliths to create microservices that are atomic, independent and decoupled. But for the most part the mobile app UI is still a huge monolith that consumes all the microservices, which makes it hard to maintain, comes with high cost of change that causes development costs to soar. These problems are leading to long release cycles and eventually abandoning apps in production. The solution is to decompose a mobile monolith to an ecosystem of Microapps!. Microapps are single purpose, cross platform apps that are designed to support a single step in a users workflow. Microapps helps in delivering a constant stream of incremental updates without long app release cycle, they help deliver a consistent user experience across different user touchpoints (be it mobile, web or wearables). Come attend this session to find out how Microapps architecture can help your development team accelerate pace of change while enabling them to deliver value in parallel.
Decentralization, blockchain, ICO - let’s go beyond the buzzwords and understand the meaning of the movement. We’ll explore blockchain in simple terms, look at the current ecosystem of decentralization tools, and walk through a simple blockchain application built with JS and Solidity.
If you ever asked yourself any of these questions: What do chatbots eat? Do chatbots have dreams? What are the usual chatbot challenges? Then this talk is for you. We will answer all of the above questions and many more. You will learn how to build a fully functioning chatbot in less than 10 minutes – without a single IF statement – and train it to understand human language. Then we will top it up with a quick AI training to make it understand the language normal people speak.
Web apps are evolving targets which show their age via varying degrees of code cruft. And that’s ok. Tech debt is an expected side-effect of living production web apps, and the challenge lies in paying down the debt while still pushing forward. Enter Abstract Syntax Trees… ASTs enable developers to parse input code into a predictable tree data structure that can be easily traversed, manipulated and then regenerated in place. Transpilers such as BabelJS use this powerful pattern to transpile ES2015+ down to a baseline of ES5. While this 1:1 transpiling is the most common usage of ASTs, they can also be leveraged to supercharge the transformation of your legacy code to meet the conventions, libraries, and/or design patterns your team is using today. Amal aims to demystify this process by breaking down the steps of how to build your own custom AST based transforms. Happy Traversing!
The pace of technological advancement is accelerating and so is the rate of user adoption which creates an amazing market opportunity and a daunting challenge for existing businesses that want to remain at the cutting edge of technology and grow. Let’s explore how organizations can take advantage of this opportunity by creating a culture of learning, applying the scientific method to idea validation and helping entrepreneurial employees bring ideas to life – from launching a MVP (minimum valuable product) to achieving product-market fit and measuring success along the way. We will look at Progress Labs as a case in point.
A panel discussion of where mobile is headed, including conversations on virtual/augmented reality, AI, machine learning, IoT, and more.
We hope you enjoy these videos, and be sure to check back with us at jsMobileConf.com, which will soon be updated with new details on the next jsMobileConf. Hope to see you there!
