Rethinking Our Relationship with the Frontend

Some of the biggest things to happen in frontend in the past decade have also affected the overall architecture of our applications. Typesafety has become a requirement for production applications, and is easily achievable with the right patterns & toolchain. Jamstack & serverless architectures empower frontend developers with fullstack superpowers, and enable them to move quicker while also reducing the burden on the backend/infrastructure teams. And real-time collaborative environments are now fully achievable thanks to CRDTs and other data structures & tools.

In this track, we will explore these topics and more, to discover not only how they enable and empower your frontend teams, but also what it means for backend developers and infrastructure teams.

Session Frontend

Everyone Can Be a Full-Stack Engineer

Wednesday Oct 26 / 10:35AM PDT

Serverless infrastructure makes it easier than ever to eliminate the boundary between frontend and backend. When engineers own the entire stack, they can focus less on rebuilding the same infrastructure and more on what matters: the user experience.

Building Typesafe APIs with tRPC & TypeScript

Wednesday Oct 26 / 11:50AM PDT

When developing modern APIs, there a few options to choose from. REST is not a standard  but instead style. Trust is constantly broken between the API and client. gRPC and GraphQL provide standards but require complex tooling.

Session Frontend

Enhance: SSR for Web Components

Wednesday Oct 26 / 04:10PM PDT

Building web apps is often characterized as painful, complex, and time consuming. There are many tools, libraries, frontend frameworks, and opinions about how to fix that problem… but they come with a catch. The frontend ecosystem is fractured into incompatible niches.

What the Data Says: Emerging Technical Trends in Front-End and How They Affect You

Wednesday Oct 26 / 01:40PM PDT

Over the last 30 years of web development a predictable cycle has appeared in the adoption, commoditization and eventual abstraction of major new technical trends in web development.
