We'll post links to their slides and presentation recordings in the program below!
The world is changing fast. More precisely, the world is changing at increasing speed. This means things that were not possible five years ago come into reach. Incumbent organizations need to adapt fast to keep up with new competitors that use new technologies easier, faster and better than they do. As a result, every aspect of software changes towards smaller. Even smaller teams or even micro-teams, less management, flatter organizations, even shorter cycles, and smaller components.
A strategy on how to properly configure webpack for your project
Dexter shares his love for svelte, what sets it apart from other frameworks and shows how it enables him to create truly reactive apps.
How serverless empowers frontend teams to get so much done without needing a backend specialist and enables teams to move super fast.
A new day brings a new framework. This rule applies also for e2e testing tools, which is cool yet frightening. How to swim but not sink in plenty of testing frameworks and have a solid e2e test coverage with minimal effort? Anastasia is going to share her insights on this which might be helpful for every developer who does care about software quality improvement paired with automated testing.
Accessibility (A11Y) is an often misunderstood topic by developers. We also tend to not see the importance and if we see it, we struggle on getting started because it’s such broad topic. What can we do to improve?
In this talk Bob will explain web accessibility and why it’s such a critical part of our job.
He will explain how to get started in testing and improving your apps using tools and methods that are market standard.
There will be real-world examples from his daily job and he’ll share how to tackle common pitfalls.
After this session, you’ll have enough knowledge to start fixing your front-end’s most low hanging A11Y issues.
In her own words, Emma is a UX Engineer with a passion for design. She has recently transitioned into a UX Engineering role at LogMeIn where she builds Design Systems with React.

Hip Hop and Unit Tests. A match made in heaven? Through a mix of audio, video and live performance, Tony will explore Web Audio in an attempt to convince the audience of its suitability for audio transcription. This is a fast paced and highly engaging talk with a crescendo you won’t forget.
Your frontend developers are pushing to get started with GraphQL, but you don’t have the backend capacity to migrate your existing REST APIs to GraphQL? Or you want to have a GraphQL API next to your existing endpoints that are based on REST, without having to rewrite all your controllers? In this talk I’ll show how to wrap existing REST APIs into one single GraphQL endpoint on both the client and server side. This allows you to access the power of GraphQL without having to change any of your existing code or connect to a database.
Last year we started the rebuild of a big e-commerce platform. The main goal was to increase the performance of the application but also to enhance the daily comfort of the developers. The rebuild was done using Nuxt and Vue, and to create a good developer experience we used Storybook to work on the components in an agnostic way. In this talk I will explain how we mixed all these tools together and how we are able to develop great code with a big team.
Noer and Sima share with you 3 main insights they have gained while teaching programming to people with a radically different background. Sima Milli will share her personal story.
One of the latest technologies targeting front-end development that is gaining quite some traction isWebAssembly.
And the latest development stack for it is Blazor! While it’s still in preview mode, it’s considered as prettyinnovative as far as WebAssembly goes.
In this session, you’ll learn what Blazor is, how it uses WebAssembly, and how to get started with it all.
By coding some examples, we’ll be able to investigate several aspects of Blazor’s support forWebAssembly, such as: dependency injection, data access, routing, editing and validation and MVVM.
Come along and discover if this new technology is something for you!
The Google Assistant is super popular. Businesses want their own voice AI. Unless you are a manufacturer for tv setup boxes or headphones, you probably don't need to use the Google Assistant, you can integrate a (voice supported) conversational AI within your own existing web/mobile app with the use of Dialogflow and Cloud Speech to Text (STT), Cloud Text to Speech (TTS).
However, implementing audio streaming within (web) applications can become difficult. It's not that the Google APIs are hard to use; those APIs are pretty straightforward. The problem is the combination of all required technology; A front app, WebRTC, microphone streams, audio encoding, sample rates, websockets, a back-end app, Google streaming APIs...
Lee Boonstra, developer advocate for Conversational AI, (and author of the ultimate audio streaming to Speech APIs - guide), will guide you how to implement your own conversational AI within your web application.
Complexity, and the consistent attempts to reduce complexity, are at the core of the evolution of technology. As technology evolves, we then find harder problems to solve and are presented with new challenges. In the client space, we’ve seen innovation that has addressed how we deal with modern application concerns like real-time and offline data while at the same time GraphQL has continued to gain in market share.
What happens when we take the advancements that GraphQL has introduced as a paradigm and combine them with a mental model that all data should be local and offline first, with eventual consistency to your database as a second thought? In this talk, I’ll talk about a data store paradigm that allows developers to work with a single, local database and source of truth, and the idea that you should not have to make more than one write action to have (eventual) consistency across the client and server.
The growth of Vue continues and we are almost ready for Vue 3. As ever Evan You will deliver the State of Vuenion 2020, if we are lucky maybe we see some Typescript code from him ;)

Producing high quality work is dependent on a well-organized team, especially in a high-pressure environment like an ad agency or a production studio. At a certain scale almost every team struggles with cultural differences, perceived pressure from management or misaligned definitions of success. Over the years Tim has learned that you are more successful if you understand what motivates people and he created a framework (yes, he's a developer) to deal with projects in complex environments that he calls "Team First".

How to apply validations using Vuelidate and its ecosystem in combination with the new Composition API
Testing a component can be counter-intuitive. It requires a mental shift to wrap your head around the differences between testing components and testing plain scripts, knowing what to test, and understanding the line between unit and end-to-end tests.
TDD makes everything easier. Instead of writing tests by examining all bits and pieces of a finished project, and trying to guess what you should cover, you’re doing the opposite. You’re starting from actual specs, a list of things that the component should do, without caring about how it does it. This way, you’re ensuring that all you test is the public API of your component, but you’re also guaranteeing you don’t forget anything.
In this talk, we’ll cover why TDD is an ideal method for testing Vue components properly, and we’ll do it together live. We’ll deep dive into why TDD works the way it does, and how it can bring you full confidence over iterating on your Vue projects. At the end of the talk, you will know exactly what to test in your Vue components, and how to do it efficiently.
About new features in Vuetify 2+ and a showcase of the work that went into upgrading the version and highlight key features.

BootstrapVue is one of the most popular component libraries in Vue.js land. During this talk, I'll tell my story of joining BootstrapVue during a major release phase. Lessons learned about the importance of proper documentation and A11Y for component frameworks and the state of BootstrapVue and our plans.
Most current UI libraries provide great user experience with a vast of components. But when it comes to heavy customization and non-standard scenarios, especially for E-Commerce, they become hard to manage, scale or even slow down performance. How to create a UI library that provides users the most possible freedom in customizing components, while keeping our performance and scalability to the fullest? How much customization freedom is enough? What other lessons learned, during building StorefrontUI, that can help other Vue developers in building their own system?
Guillaume - better known as Akryum - has been working a new 'side'-project and he's about to reveal it for the first time!
Balancing the pro's and con's of the new vue-router
Vue.js is an amazing library for building user interfaces, but it (purposefully) lacks some of the bells and whistles of a full framework. That’s where Gridsome comes in! Gridsome is a framework built on top of Vue, that provides you features like pre-rendering, a centralized GraphQL data store, and a plethora of performance and developer experience improvements out of the box. In this talk, we’ll walk through the features of Gridsome and the reasons you should or shouldn’t consider reaching for it on your next project.
Static pre-rendering is an overlooked feature of Nuxt. You can use it for more than your average blog. Here's why
