CowtownJS meetup - Web Components make AngularJS/React the new jQuery

Here’s the December 2017 video from the CowtownJS meetup in Fort Worth. I gave the talk this month and I regaled everybody with why they need to pay lots of attention to Web Components now because I think they’ll be what we’ll all be using in the not too distant future.

Note: There are some video artifacts, likely caused by the fact that I was recording with Screenflow and using AirPlay to mirror my display to a large TV in the room at the same time for everybody who attended to see. The audio is good though and hopefully you can see most of what I’m showing pretty well.

Click through to see a slew of links related to Web Components, Polymer, and more.

My apologies on taking so long to deliver this.

Polymer 2.4 release preps for version 3

Polymer v2.4 is out and it has some changes to prep you for what is coming in v3 (for example, template changes for components). However, if we assume that the v3 “Modulizer” does its job, you shouldn’t have to upgrade because moving your templates into the classes should be handled automatically later on.

The blog entry also covers some of the progress toward v3 and also mentions that there’s a new 3.0-pre.6 available now.
