Introduction to Web Components and Polymer

Deck A

10:15 am - 12:30 pm



With the updates to iOS and Android phones released last year, web components are now supported natively. With libraries such as Polymer built on top of web components, it is now possible to easily create fast Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) without the overhead of a framework. In this workshop, we’ll begin with a brief introduction to web components and Polymer. Then, we’ll dive into hands-on experiences with the core aspects of web components: the template tag, custom elements, and the Shadow DOM.

This workshop assumes an understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. No prior experience with web components, Polymer, or any library or framework (web components or otherwise) is required.
