Choose Your Animation AdventureVal Head
With an eye to both the strategy and tactics of animation needs, you’ll learn what which web animation options are the best fit for common UI design tasks.
Val will survey the full spectrum of animation options from CSS to React Motion and show which are best suited for things like state transitions, showing data, animating illustrations, or making animations responsive.
You’ll also see how your choice of animation tools can impact performance, so you’ll leave knowing exactly which tools to choose for your animation needs.

A red LEGO brick is always red: components on the webJack Franklin
This talk will explore the changes that have occurred in the front end space in the past few years and how we’ve aligned on the concepts of components being the key building block for frontend applications.
We’ll discuss how thinking of a web application as a tree of components, rather than discrete pages, leads to a more testable, maintainable and reliable codebase. We’ll look at how we can build predictable components, encapsulating perfectly the triumvirate of HTML, CSS and JS that can be combined to build reusable components.
Using React as our component library of choice, we’ll look at patterns that lead you down the path of reusability almost by default and how to walk the fine line between reusability and death by configuration.
Then we’ll explore the final piece of the puzzle: CSS. CSS goes against everything the componentised world stands for but its global, cascading nature can be tamed. I’ll show different approaches to combining your CSS with your components in order to fully encapsulate a component into a lovely, reusable lego brick.
Join us for an awesome buffet lunch, with an opportunity for a cheeky brewery tour as well.
Having fun with WebBluetoothNiels Leenheer
Your brain does not have a fix flagSara Vieira
Depression and anxiety are enormous problems in our work and world in general. But they are topics that are not discussed enough and topics that we feel are kind of shameful.
In this talk Sara will expose her personal mental health issues that she had for a long time so you don’t ever feel embarrassed again.
She will go through what she learned in this horrible horrible journey of putting a fix flag on her brain in the hope that it helps as many people as possible.

Frontend ResilienceIan Feather
It’s time to accept that system and network failures are inevitable and to start designing our systems to withstand them. In a year when S3 has gone down twice(!) this is becoming ever more obvious.
Come and learn 19 ways BuzzFeed designs their frontend to be resilient to failure!
Accomplishing this isn’t easy but we’ve learnt a few tricks along the way which we would love to share! I’ll explain the principles behind our approach as well as detailing some of the solutions we have put in place: covering areas of automation, instrumentation and continuous testing in production.
A few words from us.
Join us at Lane7 - for more chat, bowling, ping pong, karoke and pool!
