Fluent Conference 2017 - San Jose, CA

Video Description

Fluent San Jose 2017 aimed a series of spotlights onto the crucial technologies and frameworks of today's web ecosystem. With more than 80 of the world's top web innovators offering their insights via 60+ sessions and 15+ keynotes, the opportunity for developers, software engineers, interaction and UX designers, performance specialists, and other web wizards to learn and grow felt almost limitless. This video compilation gives you access to more than 60 hours of material recorded at Fluent San Jose 2017. Keynotes include Erica Baker from Slack Technologies, Tim Kadlec from Snyk, Sean Regan from Atlassian, and other luminaries. The tutorials–almost 28 hours in total–cover advanced methods for debugging with Chrome DevTools, building hybrid mobile apps with Ionic, an immersive introduction to React Native, and five other illuminating subjects. Like all Fluent conferences, this forum was organized into topics. Each topic is listed below, along with a sample of the speakers presenting that topic.

  • Performance Matters (10 sessions): Addy Osmani (Google) shares data-driven techniques and performance patterns for efficiently loading content instantly; Nic Jansma (SOASTA) and Shubhie Panicker (Google) explain the new RUM APIs for measuring responsiveness; and Gareth Hughes and Michael Gooding (Akamai) lead a tutorial on the top five performance techniques for today's modern browsers and how to implement them.
  • Modern Web Essentials (9 sessions): Ben Ilegbodu (Eventbrite) deconstructs the CSS Flexbox; Bryan Braun (Sparkbox) flips through 14 different web animation methods; Mike North (LinkedIn) unlocks a security primer designed for web developers; and Google developer expert Rachel Andrew (Edgeofmyseat.com) illustrates modern CSS layout methods and the core tasks they're designed to accomplish.
  • Future JS & Functional (8 sessions): Ben Lesh (Netflix) takes you on the path of becoming an RxJS expert; Jeremy Fairbank (Test Double) shows you how to tame the frontend with Elm; and Nicole Chung (TWG) helps you handle the nightmares of asynchronous code in JavaScript.
  • Frontend Frameworks and Libraries (7 sessions): Tim Kadlec (Snyk) explores how to evaluate the performance, accessibility, and security tradeoffs of third-party frameworks and libraries; and Victor Mejia (Orange County Code School) lays out his tutorial on unit testing in Angular 2.
  • Cross-Platform and Mobile (6 sessions): Tracy Lee (This Dot Labs) demonstrates how to build native mobile apps with React Native (in less than 30 minutes!) and Simon MacDonald (Adobe) demonstrates how to create a PWA that runs on the web, Android, and iOS from a single code base.
  • Frontend Tools (5 sessions): Katie Sylor-Miller (Etsy) pins downs the best mops for cleaning up Git messes and Marcy Sutton (Deque Systems) shares practical tips on making code work for everyone by integrating accessibility into workflows.
  • Web Services and API (4 sessions): Miguel Grinberg (Rackspace) speaks on the challenges of securing authentication secrets in the browser and Erin McKean (IBM|Wordnik) talks about Loopback, an open source Node framework for quickly creating CRUD APIs.
  • Multiple presentations on full stack development (3 sessions); people and teams (sessions); web platform foundations (2 sessions) and other intriguing web issues, including Joao Fernandes (Docker) detailing how Docker depends on good documentation to successfully introduce new products and Ben Vinegar (Sentry) demystifying the workings of source maps.
