Cassie Evans speaks about Unlocking SVG’s Superpowers

Unlocking SVG’s Superpowers
When most people think of SVG, they picture icons and illustrations, but it’s a magical language that’s capable of so much more! When you stop viewing it purely as a way to make vector graphics, a whole world of UI styling opens up. Come with me as we dig a little deeper and unlock some of SVG’s superpowers.

Jeremy Keith speaks about Declarative Design

Declarative Design
Different browsers, different devices, different network speeds…designing for the web can feel like a never-ending battle for control. But what if the solution is to relinquish control? Instead of battling the unknowns, we can lean into them. In the world of programming, there’s the idea of declarative languages: describing what you want to achieve without specifying the exact steps to get there. In this talk, we’ll take this concept of declarative programming and apply it to designing for the web. Instead of focusing on controlling the outputs of the design process, we’ll look at creating the right inputs instead. Leave the final calculations for the outputs to the browser—that’s what computers are good at. We’ll look at CSS features, design systems, design principles, and more. Then you’ll be ready to embrace the fluid, ever-changing, glorious messiness of the World Wide Web!

i18n was the missing piece: Let 70%+ of the users in the world access your apps
Accessibility, better DX, and performance get a lot of attention as it improves better UX significantly. Plus, it gives satisfaction to devs by seeing the significant improvements. But how about internationalisation? A fun fact: Over 70% of the users in the world access non-English content. In this talk, I’ll show you more surprising facts about internationalisation and what are scalable approaches. You’ll see examples with libraries for frameworks with a few different logic to implement different internationalisation layouts.

Phil Hawksworth speaks about Render time

Render time
The way we thought about delivering and displaying content used to be simpler. Webservers sent HTML down the wire and browsers displayed it. Done. Pub? Not so fast! Now there are lots of ways content might be rendered for our users. And understanding what they all are, why you would choose what, and how they impact the development and the experience for the users is not always clear. In this talk, we’ll learn what SSR/CSR/SSG/DPR/DSG/ISR/ODB/SPA/MPA and Edge Rendering all really mean, along with their relative pros and cons. We’ll see how we might select the right one for different types of projects. And we’ll walk through a practical example which combines a number of rendering techniques to see how a web project can use a variety of complementary technologies with compelling results.
