Fluent Conference - San Jose, CA 2018

Video description

Led by the planet's best and brightest web developers, software engineers, designers, and web performance professionals, Fluent San Jose 2018 explored the crucial technologies and frameworks of the full web stack: JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, React, Angular, containers, and other emerging tools that transform the way the web works. This video compilation makes it possible for you to see, hear, and study every keynote address, tutorial, and technical session delivered at Fluent. It contains hours of content, giving you the opportunity to broaden your skill set and delve deeper into the tools you use—or will use—every day. Highlights include:

  • Keynote addresses by notables such as Addy Osmani (Engineering Manager, Google Chrome) on why JavaScript is the most expensive resource your mobile site uses today; Brendan Eich (CEO, Brave Software) on why designing customer privacy into our work is a must; Lin Clark (Mozilla Engineer) on why and how browsers must get faster; and Tracy Lee (Founder, This Dot) on how to use open source organizations to boost diversity in tech.
  • Tutorials, including Dan Shappir's (Wix) deep dive into the web performance API and Luca Mezzalira's (DAZN) how-to on Reactive programming for frontend developers.
  • "Developer Experience -Tools, Platforms, and Techniques" sessions, including Rachel Myers's (Google) talk on the distributed systems engineering skills all web developers must acquire; Peggy Rayzis' (Meteor Development Group) explanation of GraphQL; Houssein Djirdeh's (Rangle.io) look at the PRPL pattern and how it optimizes webpages and apps; and Brian Holt (Microsoft) on how to optimize webpack and Babel configs to get the best performance possible.
  • "Web Pillars - Performance, Security, and Accessibility" sessions, including Akamai's Nic Jansma on planning for the worst when using third-party libraries and services on your website; Maximiliano Firtman's (IT Master Professional Training) reveal of how to hack web performance; and Katie Sylor-Miller on how Etsy uncovered and fixed performance issues in its mobile product page code.
  • "Beyond Code - The Business Side of the Web" sessions, including Kim Crayton's (#causeascene) explanation of how to reduce the exclusionary practices that inhibit diversity in your organization.
  • Total access to every keynote, tutorial, and session delivered at Fluent San Jose June 2018–this compilation includes hours of content you can view on your own schedule.
