Designer, Developer, Mentor

HTML5 hasn't fundamentally changed the way we build web applications — JavaScript frameworks did that. Not so with Web Components! Web Components are the most important update to HTML and the Document Object Model in recent years. They have a major impact on client-side architecture, on framework selection, and on distribution and reuse of code.

In this session, I'll explain to you the four Web Components standards, their current state, and why you should care. I'll give several examples of complex applications built in Web Components, and running in all modern browsers — including a rich mobile game.

About Danny Brian

Danny Brian got his programming start as a backend developer, wrangling Perl to do all sorts of things for which it was never intended. He wrote some books on software development and document-oriented databases. Eventually he found his true calling: Front-end development. In this “new career” Danny has worked as a designer, Flash developer, and application architect. Today Danny's projects include mobile game development with both HTML5 and the Unity platform. His goal? “To build stuff that people actually like, that stick around for more than a few years, and to help others do the same.”
