Let’s build a Web Component!

A presentation at Web Directions: Code 2019 in in Melbourne VIC, Australia by Erin Zimmer

The time has finally come for web components. The specs have been standardised. They’re now (or soon to be) supported in all modern browsers. You can use them with your favourite framework.

So, how do you get started? There are a bunch of libraries around that can help you build web components. But, to help you really get what they’re about, we’re going to build one from scratch, on stage, in twenty minutes.

No frameworks, no libraries, no build tools. Just you, me and an IDE.
