Moving application auth to the edge

2023-06-0913:30-15:00

Secure your application by handling auth at the edge - before a user hits your application. This would be primarily about building out a login/signup flow that happens at the edge, before a request reaches your app - which would only see user profile information for the currently logged in user.

Workshop🔗

Wearing different hats: understanding and practicing the designer/developer workflow for digital products with a design system in place

2023-06-0609:00-17:00

There are developers who have an eye for design, or designers who understand and like to code. This understanding of the other side can really help increase the speed of product development, as well as help a team achieve better results because there's empathy for each other's efforts. This workshop is intended to showcase the reality of these two disciplines and bring practical tips to be implemented by any team.

We will spend the day understanding the key aspects of a designer's and developer's work in a digital product and how a design system enhances this interaction. This is a hands-on workshop to empower you with better understanding of your colleagues and how to leverage the design system in this workflow. We will work with Figma files and an existing React component library, no prior knowledge is required.

Adaptive Music for the Web With RNBO

2023-06-0815:30-17:00

Max is a visual programming language for music. It has been around since the 1980s, and has been used by countless electronic musicians and sound artists to build musical instruments, installations, and generative compositions. Since a few months ago it has also been possible to also run Max programs in web browsers, using a new runtime called RNBO. This makes Max a viable new option for those of us who are interested in delivering adaptive sound and music experiences on the web.

In this talk we'll make some generative music using Max's visual interactive patching environment. We'll then bundle the music system into a webapp that lets anyone run it in their web browser. In the process we'll get a taste of what Max is like, what it can do, and how it slots into web projects.

Comparative study of reactivity across frameworks and implications for Resumability

2023-06-0809:00-10:30

All frameworks have reactivity. Change your state, and the UI updates accordingly. But how does it actually work under the hood? How do the frameworks learn enough about your application to enable reactivity? What are the implications of these choices, and how do frameworks compare to each other in how they are implemented? But most importantly, are these choices compatible with resumability going forward or are we stuck with Hydration forever?

Server/Client unified execution model with Qwik

2023-06-0915:30-17:15

The concept of a unified execution model between server and client brings a new approach to building interactive applications that are both performant and flexible. By leveraging resumability as an alternative to traditional hydration, the execution of the application can seamlessly transition from server-side to client-side, reducing the eager download and execution of JavaScript. This results in instant-on applications, even on poor connections and slow devices.

Building Fast WebApps with Qwik City

2023-06-0709:00-17:00

Building instant-on web applications at scale have been elusive. Real-world sites need tracking, analytics, and complex user interfaces and interactions. We always start with the best intentions but end up with a less-than-ideal site.

Qwik City is a new meta-framework that allows you to build large-scale applications with constant startup-up performance. We will look at how to build a Qwik City application and what makes it unique. The workshop will show you how to set up a Qwik City project. How routing works with layout. The demo application will fetch data and present it to the user in an editable form. And finally, how one can use authentication. All of the basic parts for any large-scale applications.

Along the way, we will also look at what makes Qwik unique, and how resumability enables constant startup performance no matter the application complexity.

Creating universal design systems across web and mobile with Utility First Styling

2023-06-0813:30-15:00

Striking the right balance between consistency and platform-specific user experiences is essential for successfully creating a design system for web and mobile. In this talk, we'll explore how to create a universal design system that caters to the unique requirements of both platforms without losing their distinct identities. After all, nobody wants websites that look like apps, and apps that look like websites. We'll dive into the challenges and solutions of unifying design elements while acknowledging the fundamental differences between web and mobile interfaces. We'll take inspiration from utility first styling, and discuss how to establish consistent design tokens and primitives that enable a seamless cross-platform experience.

Building AI-powered user interfaces

2023-06-0815:30-17:00

As web engineers, we build user interfaces that make using our products simple, understandable and delightful. Over the years, we’ve built a toolkit of frameworks, patterns and practices to do so.

In the next few years, more and more products will be built on top of Artificial Intelligence technologies, such as generative models like OpenAI’s GPT-3. In this world, which of our tools will remain helpful, and which problems will require new solutions?

In this talk, I’ll explore some of the challenges our existing frameworks and mental models have in the age of generative AI. I’ll also introduce novel ways of thinking about user interfaces that we’ve discovered while designing and building an AI-powered web application for serious writers.

Hacking meaningful connections with humans by talking to (toy) rodents

2023-06-0915:30-17:15

Building weird little hardware projects has provided a space for me to feel technically competent when I have felt like an imposter. After being diagnosed with ADHD last year, I realized that hacking on hardware has been a sanctuary where I could explore my social awkwardness and human connection. I've been experimenting to find out if I can turn unexpected and impractical soft objects into input devices that can lower my barriers to sustaining meaningful connections with others. In this talk, I’ll share my journey of building two explorations so far: a giant soft pompom that sends AI-generated motivational but esoteric art when it’s hugged and a toy hamster that I talk to that sends my voice messages (in a high-pitched, but oddly therapeutic voice) to my long-distance partner. Whether you’re neurodivergent or not, I hope to inspire you to start a project even if you feel intimidated by the technical details and find joy in the journey rather than the destination.
