Web Components are a set of standards currently being produced by Google engineers as a W3C specification that allow for the creation of reusable widgets or components in web documents and web applications. The intention behind them is to bring component-based software engineering to the World Wide Web. The components model allows for encapsulation and interoperability of individual HTML elements. (Wikipedia)Agenda* About Web Components* The four Specifications* Browser compatibility* Web Components Libraries* Demo: Use Web Components* Demo: Create own Web ComponentsIn this talk I show the sense of Web Components and explain why web developers need them. I talk about the state of browser compatibility and how to use Web Components in browsers, that actually doesn’t support them. I show how to use Web Components and explain how Web Components work. A big part of this talk is about creating own Web Components, which I explain with live coding examples.To fully understand this talk the attendees should have basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. After the talk all attendees get a link to download the slides and source files of the live coding part.
