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.
